Alinghi is a cutting-edge cedar, glass and steel vacation home, clinging to the cliffs of north Queensland’s Capricorn Coast, Australia. This eco-chic beach pad has five bedrooms, including a master suite that’s separated from the main pavilion by an expansive travertine terrace. Luxury furnishings, high-tech gadgets and slick entertaining areas which all have expansive jaw-dropping views.
Alinghi is made up of two pavilions built around a huge travertine terrace that dramatically juts out towards the sea. The master bedroom pavilion is separated from the main house by a terrace, and features a king-size bed with ocean views, as well as a study. The shower room has a glass wall that slides back to reveal the surrounding bush land, the established trees provide privacy. Across the terrace, bordered on three sides by a narrow, shallow pool, the main pavilion has four bedrooms on the first floor. There are two king-size bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and two bunk rooms.
The kitchen opens up to the living area and dining room. The living room has an open fireplace and is decorated in calm neutral tones. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open on to the terrace. Alinghi is set in the Rocky Point Estate, which has a 25-metre saltwater pool, flanked by sun loungers. There is also an outdoor shower for cooling off. The house is surrounded by dense native bushland leading down to the sea.
