There is nothing like a relaxing beach house to escape the rush of mundane city life and enjoy a rejuvenating weekend with friends and family. Overlooking an idyllic stretch of beach and the vast Pacific in the distance is all about a tranquil lifestyle wrapped in modern comfort.
The street façade of the large private residence still retains its original look and it is only on the inside that one uncovers a more contemporary backdrop. The lovely use of windows skylights and of course recessed and pendant lighting add to the glitter and warmth of the family house that seems like a relaxing holiday retreat.
The central garden of the house is its main social area and it’s flanked by the main living zone on one side and a home office and recreational wing on the other. Fold-away doors on both sides turn the living space into a passage between the front yard and the central garden!
While the color scheme of the backdrop is largely white additions such as the black accent wall in the family room plush rugs colorful couches and décor breathe life into the setting. The focus here is on loads of natural light and a breezy ambiance that seems like an extension of the world outside.
Known as Hellerup Manor House this large L-shaped heritage-listed dwelling has been home to Knud Erik Hansen and his family since 2002 (although records on Hellerup Manor House date as far back as 1419).
