Portsea, Victoria

Located opposite the famed Portsea Golf Club, this property is located in a predominantly indigenous inspired landscape. The architecture is simple and refreshing with a series of pavilions broken up by a large deck, lawn and sunken garden bed areas. Beautifully crafted Limestone masonry is used inside to form the fireplaces and flows through to the exterior landscape. Gravel areas to the front are sized to cater for overflow carparking but otherwise appear as organically shaped areas amongst the planted areas. The planting palette is hardy and low in maintenance, with a predominance of local species. Plants used include; Poa poiformis (Coast Tussock Grass), Myoporum parvifolium (Creeping Boobialla), Correa alba (White Correa), Dianella longifolia (Flax Lily), Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) and Banksia integrifolia (Coastal Banksia) as well as non-fruiting Olea sp. (Olive) for screening.
