Description of this Whale Beach Holiday House

The Archer House, described as one of Australia’s quintessential beachfront homes, is spectacularly set on Sydney’s iconic Whale Beach. Built into the contours of the hill with the beach at your doorstep, the minimalist steel, glass and concrete pavilion offers a spacious open living design and panoramic views over the South Pacific Ocean.

The Archer House graciously flows over two levels, with living on the top level and all of the bedrooms on the second level. The top floor of the pavilion can open on both sides with glass walls that slide away to form a continuous platform from the terrace in front to the courtyard at the back. It has a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living room. The podium below has 3 generous bedrooms and bathrooms, including a family/bunk room. The house can comfortably accommodate 10 guests. Its waxed concrete floors and floor to ceiling louvres capture the ocean cross breeze to keep you cool in the height of summer. The underfloor heating in each of the rooms and wood burning outdoor fire place in the courtyard at the back will keep you cozy in the winter months.

The Archer House was designed by the award winning Craig Rosevear and has been acknowledged as outstanding contemporary architecture having won the prestigious Australian Institute of Architect’s

Wilkinson Award in 2001. The house has been featured in the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture; on the cover of ‘Living in Sydney’, photographed by Giorgio Possenti; and in 100 Amazing Sydney Homes, Part One, Sydney Morning Herald, November 2003.
