ELEGANT ARCHITECT'S OWN HOME
Many months of thoughtful planning went into this architect's own home. His brief was to create a timeless, simple and elegant home requiring minimal maintenance while utilising the scale and character of the site to best advantage.
The result is a carefully executed one-of-a-kind home with commercial builder construction, passive solar features and ingenious detailing.
A short flight of ancient Avoca stone steps lead to the cedar front door which opens to reveal a vista of space, light and polished Vic ash strip floors flowing the full length of the home.
Expansive open-plan living areas and all three bedrooms enjoy uninterrupted garden views via banks of North-facing aluminium sashless windows allowing winter sun penetration while low-angled eaves blockout the summer sun.
Cathedral ceilings add to the sense of space in the expansive open-plan living area where a freestanding joinery unit divides the sitting/reading room from the living room, dining area and galley-style kitchen. Cooking for family and friends will be a pleasure with new Smeg appliances, Miele dishwasher, ample bench space and cabinetry.
Three large bedrooms off the corridor include the main suite encompassing parents retreat, walk-through-robe and recently renovated ensuite. The main bathroom, large powder room and laundry, also recently renovated, feature commercial grade fittings and Velux skylight roof windows.
Added features include 2.7m ceilings, ample storage and ceiling fans throughout, Lennox gas heating and refrigerated ducted air conditioning system, LED lighting, BOSE sound system, 100% commercial wool carpets to bedrooms
Outside, a double carport and 3m high garage with oversized roller door incorporates an insulated wine cellar room, storage cupboards and wide internal stairs to the residence.
A peaceful garden entry leads guests to the outdoor living deck with sheltered alcove and louvered sun protection while a stunning 5m hedge on the north boundary provides a green backdrop to the
