Power renovating couple Kyal and Kara Demmrich of The Block fame have done it again with the latest of their many projects. After completing a NSW Central Coast duplex called Bay Builds, they’re selling the two homes, with a price guide of $2.5 million each.

Designed by the pair in collaboration with Etchells Building and built by their own company Diverse Design and Construct, each three-bedroom place is a mirror image of the other. Located 500 metres from the beach, they will undoubtedly be snapped up fast.

While the layout of each home is the same, the styles are different. “House 1 leans into a light, refined, French-inspired elegant interior scheme,” says Kara. “House 2 is moody and rustic. Warm micro-cement, aged American Oak and Vancouver natural stone deliver a coastal Spanish interior.”

In the September issue of Home Beautiful, on sale July 29, we hang out with Kyal and Kara in House 2. Until then, we walk through House 1 ahead of the sale.

From the front to the back, there’s a theme of curves and organic finishes.

To achieve the curves in the kitchen and bedrooms, Kyal and Kara used Gyprock Flexible. The 6.5 mm thick plasterboard sheets have an enhanced gypsum core which is designed to bend and enables builders to easily create curved walls and ceilings and add visual interest to a space.

“I love the part of the building process when we’re putting up the Gyprock as it’s when the fun part of the building starts,” says Kara.

“We’ve used curves as a design element and we wanted to add that architectural feature in the master bedrooms,” says Kyal. “The curved wall that leads from the entrance of the bedroom really softens the look of the space and feels luxurious and has made it one of our favourite rooms.”

The crowning glory of both homes is the outdoor area, featuring a round plunge pool, lush greenery and stone details.
