A Colorbond steel roof from Bluescope Steel has been specified for a family home in Newport, in Sydney’s northern beaches area.

Designed by Peter Downes Designs, the family home features four bedrooms, study, open plan kitchen/dining/lounge, family room, 3.5 bathrooms, laundry and large underground music room.

The family left the hustle and bustle of city life behind for the tranquillity of the northern beaches area and desired a coastal house with a difference as well as a lap pool and a sound proof music room. The home had to be energy and water efficient and make the most of the fantastic beach and sea view.

The home was designed with the living area opening at entrance level, enabling guests to look right out to sea. The design also takes advantage of the sloping site by keeping the roof level low, helping to preserve the existing views of the northern neighbours.

The 25 metre lap pool features a widened end for the kid’s play area alongside the home and the underground music room is completely sound proofed.

The Colorbond Ultra steel roof was supplied in Woodland Grey colour and the Custom Orb profile was used to achieve dramatic but functional roof lines.

More information on the range of Colorbond roofing is available from Bluescope Steel.
