Luke and Thip Royans own a piece of paradise on the southern Fleurieu Peninsula called Land’s End.
It sits at the very tip of Cape Jervis and it’s just what it proclaims to be.
If you walk out of the home in most any direction, you will inevitably meet the sea…………quite quickly in fact.
Land’s End has all kinds of strengths and demonstrates the key role premium quality and unique features play in the development of designer homes, allowing owners to show passion both inside and out.
The commanding presence of Land’s End takes luxury living to a whole new level, with design that is more dynamic, elegant and stylish than ever before.
The clean surfaces and minimalist contours radiate a fascinating and timeless modernity.
Distinctive design combines a powerful exterior, luxuriously elegant and progressive interior, new comfort features and exceptionally sophisticated materials, lending it a unique character not seen before.
This spectacular home is essentially three pavilions combined.
It has a grand entrance with the sea view maximised by a double-width hallway framing the view room.
Look up to the central four-and-a-half metre raked ceiling pavilion incorporating the expansive kitchen, dining and living area.
A neutral white and off-white kitchen with a large walk-in pantry is perfect for the family who wanted to have something that wouldn’t date too quickly.
There are two smaller wings to either side, split between an adult retreat and the kids’ space on the other.
The skillion roof ties them together and a neutral white and off-white palette continues to create a wonderful sense of calm.
The magnificent seascape can be viewed from all of the living rooms and bedrooms, with bathrooms, pantry, laundry and utilities at the back of the home.
The large sandstone fireplace is framed by windows looking out to the ocean and Kangaroo Island.
The finishes are tied together with limestone brickwork inside and out.
A neutral ceramic tile is also seamlessly carried through all the main living areas, which are softened with rich wall-to-wall rugs in the bedrooms.
The skillion roof overhangs the main pavilion, allowing winter sun in, but shielding the interiors from the summer sun.
A limestone blade wall welcomes a four bedroom, three bathroom showpiece redefining beach-side boutique.
The three separate wings are joined by long halls of sheet glass to expose the views, as the house curves around the headland to expose the maximum views to all rooms.
The main living area encompasses ‘Gwen’s View Room’ where one can unwind and watch the world go by.
Luke describes: ‘The home points from blue to blue, so where the horizon starts at one end and where it ends at the other, that’s where the house points so we get all of the sea view all of the time.’
The home not only captures this view but it faces north so you get the passive solar benefit making it achieve a very high energy rating.
This aspect coupled with maximum insulation, high ceilings and cross flow ventilation means winter sun is used to heat the house and summer sun is maximised by large oversized eaves.
