Barefoot on Bedarra Island
Welcome to the simply stunning Bedarra Island Treetop Hideaway. This is the perfect escape for one or 2 couples- the house isn't particulary suitable for children.
Nestled in the treetops of Bedarra island this unique north Queensland home is just spectacular. There are 2 separate pavilions, with a bedroom and bathroom in each.
The pavilions have been placed on the site in a way that utilises the existing contours of the land and maximises the views to the ocean and neighbouring Family Islands. Every room has a view.
The house's orientation to the shape of the land minimised the need for excavation.
Pavilions consist of living/bedroom, entry and kitchen/dining with a huge deck flanking all the areas on the water side. The entry pavilion is the smallest and opens to an awe-inspiring view of the ocean.
The specification that natural rockforms be utilised within the house itself, is a distinctive and stunning touch, helping to create a structure that sits harmoniously in its landscape.
Each of the pavilions is comprised of the same materials and scale creating a consistency of expression which makes the separate components part of a complete whole.
Recycled and sustainably managed timbers have been used extensively in the home. Wooden louvres, central "raw" poles, ceiling, flooring and decking help create a true tree-house feel.
