Holland House is a comfortable, luxurious and honest beach house. A place to relax, read, listen to music.
And of course, to look at the sea. The open plan living areas allow for million dollar views to the "Bay of Fires".
Just imagine yourself lazily on the large pillows with a book. Or waking up from your afternoon nap wondering if the shadows out there in the sea are really dolphins...
It's about simple life in a beautiful place.
Holland House is elevated above the land on slender steel columns as though it could be plucked from the site leaving no evidence of its existence. With respect to nature at this location: rugged terrain and beautiful climate.
Rainwater is collected and kept in a tank and reused. The slow combustion heater in the living area heats the whole house. And the floors and decks are all of recycled eucalyptus wandoo wood, which came from a Western Australian shearing shed.
Holland House consists of two master bedrooms upstairs with each a queen-sized hotel quality bed.
Your bed is comfortably made before your arrival. Linen is all white and very crisp.
The view from the master bedroom ocean side is breathtaking. If you like getting up early open your blinds and watch the sun rise... The colors are spectacular.
The main bathroom with double sinks and double shower is also upstairs as well as your Happy Cupboard with your bath towels and your beach towels. Shampoo, body wash and hand wash are upmarket brands.
Dining area is downstairs as well as the well equipped kitchen. The pantry is stocked with dry goods for your convenience. The expansive living area opens out to the decks.
The Baby Weber BBQ is set up on the roadside deck. Luckily it has a lid so no possum can steal your food!
Award winning from the RAIA (Royal Australian Institute of Architects) in 2007 and various publications on Holland House
RAIA judges: "The assured rationalist form is in clear and deliberate contrast with the surrounding raw landscape, underscoring the definition between the natural and the built".
"Simply stunning, stunningly simple",
Alison Ribbon in the Sunday Tasmanian July 15, 2007
"The house celebrates the form of a shipping container, a nodding reference to the many nautical miles that separate the Dutch owners from their homeland".
Jenna Reed Burns in Houses, issue 53
""Beach Shack" situated in lush native bushland on Tasmania's beautiful east coast, a testament to environmentally conscious, coastal living".
Australia's Best Beach Houses, edited by Gary Takle, 2010
"The European functionalism (of the beach house)- its warm, clean interiors and simple, unadorned style- has been infused with several gestures towards vernacular Australian architecture".
Specifier magazine, issue 78
"The kitchen makes me want to start cooking, the acres of stainless steel bench too just begging to be used".
