Art imitates Life

A gorgeous birthday gift from Mr Beachcomber; a specially commissioned painting of our very own Mark II, by Tasmanian artist John Fibbens. Rendered with quintessential 1960’s flair – thanks John, Nino and David!

Fresh faced at 50

A facelift for a weary Beachcomber in leafy South Turramurra. If you couldn’t discern the original bones, this one might have you fooled!

Music over the lake

“We went to the Carlingford Homes Fair with our oldest son in a pram. The Beachcomber design was so exciting, so modern amongst the other options available at that time. There were so many new features…nothing like the cheap project homes of that era.”

Family Flexible

A well loved family home that has adapted with the times, yet still exudes the Beachcomber vibe.

Bushland Beauty

A Mark III/IV in Wollongong’s leafy Balgownie. Perfectly located for views from the escarpment, this home was thoughtfully renovated by the owners in 2001.

Newport retreat

A Mark IV in Sydney’s hilly northern beaches. Mostly original, the occupants enjoy the additions featured in this last version of the Beachcomber, including the kitchen hatch and the big north-facing window in the living area.

By the Sea

Newly landscaped, 2013

A Beachcomber Mark II constructed at Avalon Beach in 1963. The angled orientation of the house on a sloping bush block allows views of the valley to the ocean. Locally referred to as the “television set” house, which only makes sense if you remember television sets used to have legs…

Searching for Nino

A Beachcomber Mark II constructed on a dramatic cliffside site in the Blue Mountains. The home has withstood several bushfires and its original charm is very much appreciated by its new owners.
