With absolute water frontage, the house is on Mossy Pt headland overlooking the surf and sand of one of NSW's finest beaches. Built in 1978 by a Danish architect and his Aussie mate, it is the country's first solar passive house. Its design has an indoor/outdoor ambiance to capture the beauty of the natural environment. In the summer months the roof is sealed against the heat, but the house has a thermal chimney through its centre to draw in the cooling sea breezes. In winter, the glass walls and windows flood the place with light and warmth. The house won a Home Beautiful of the Year award and has since featured in Australian architecture textbooks, as an example of how to create dwellings that integrate into the world around us, using the sun and wind.
Accommodation includes two lower ground bedrooms, one with a single bed, the other with a double bed. Upstairs is a sleeping mezzanine divided by a bathroom, with a queen-sized bed on one side, and a queen-sized bed, a single and a trundle on the other. This area is enclosed by plantation shutters which can be opened to enhance air flow through the house. The middle level includes the kitchen, dining and living area leading to a screened verandah, a laundry and a second bathroom. It also leads to the front deck.
