The boy is probably a grandpa now, but the Beachcomber Mark II looks resplendent amongst the less adventurous housing nearby. Comenarra Estate, South Turramurra. Photographed 1960s, image supplied by Nino Sydney.

Beachcomber by Night

The generous windows onto the sun-deck plus the highlight glass panels make Beachcombers shine in the dark (with energy efficient lamps of course).  This one is set in suburban bushland in Avalon.

Kitchen conundrums

A well used 1960’s kitchen needed a bit of help for a 1990’s young family. And as with the later versions of the Beachcomber, the kitchen benefited from being opened up to the living room, and the view.

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.
