When sea­soned home builders David Glee­son and Leah Atkins start a new project, they look to the en­vi­ron­ment for in­spi­ra­tion. In the case of this four-bed­room new-build, it was the stun­ning Mol­ly­mook Beach on the NSW south coast, and the rich her­itage of the sur­round­ing Mil­ton area that pro­vided the back­drop. The com­bi­na­tion re­sulted in a home with two bath­rooms that cap­ture the best of both — a so­phis­ti­cated coastal in­te­rior pep­pered with sal­vaged finds col­lected by Leah over the years. The rooms are also de­fined by pieces that have been clev­erly rein­vented by David, a builder. The en­suite has char­ac­ter in spades, with the ad­di­tion of David’s wall-mounted cup­board made from old doors and a cus­tom van­ity bench (which sur­rounds Leah’s vin­tage enamel baby’s bath sourced from The So­ci­ety Inc). Mean­while, the main bath­room, with its lux­u­ri­ous cast iron tub, fea­tures some of Leah’s favourite ma­te­ri­als. “It’s a beau­ti­ful spa­cious area that mixes my love of rus­tic tim­ber and con­crete,” Leah ex­plains.
