It is a stunning home and bush-land setting/retreat which is spacious, unique and highly desirable.
The property itself is one of a kind, solar passive, Energy-efficient, off-grid, hand-crafted residence. At the entrance, you are immediately impressed by a wall built from local Araluen stone, hand-selected by the current owners during construction.
When entering the main living area, you are struck by the enormous recycled American Oregon beams and soaring 4.3m high-raked ceilings with stunning windows. The large open fireplace has been hand constructed with fire bricks. (This unique design is not only a true piece of art, but it also reflects the heat back into the room and draws external air to remove drafts and dryness from the atmosphere).
The house has been constructed with design and energy efficiency as the top priorities. Inspired by the architectural design of Californian architect David Wright “THE TERRY HOUSE” from the book (30 Energy-efficient houses…..you can build) which has an energy efficiency ratio of 93 one of the highest in the book. It has an aesthetically pleasing combination of red brick, stone and rammed-earth walls (both externally and internally), timber-framed windows, white-washed timber lined ceilings, slate flooring and a concrete slab.
The property was also built with Japanese influence, including a traditional Japanese dining area, Shoji screens and a deep-set traditional-style Japanese bath.
Some areas of the home can be customised to suit specific needs. The Rumpus and Loft act as the 3rd Bedroom and the Garage acts as a Workshop or Studio.
