a restored 60’s beach house

revived 1960′s beach house

A space that encourages a sense of 'slow' and connection. That is Coota, the lovingly revived 1960's beach house of Rhiannon and Matt Orr, founders of Design Orr Build. Despite its original near uninhabitable state, Rhiannon and Matt saw potential in the bones of the beach home in Capel Sound, on the Mornington Peninsula.

Their call? An extensive renovation as a family home and eventual accommodation. With large windows framing the outdoors and beautiful timber louvres on the facade that operate like a tent, inviting sea breeze into the home.

The property consists of the main house with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, laundry, kitchen, dining and living. Through rear yard access there is a studio extension comprising of 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Set amongst coastal indigenous landscaping, the yard also offers an outdoor shower for the sandy beach returns, large entertaining deck with outdoor dining setting under a tree canopy and a small deck with two rocking chairs.
