Set within Bend of Islands, the unique community that forms the pure heart of the Nillumbik green wedge, this magnificent 10-acre (approx) bush property is sited on the top of a ridge that delivers beautiful views and sunshine from dawn to dusk.
Designed by Ross Henry, with passive solar elements to the forefront, exceptional craftsmanship unites mudbricks, reclaimed timbers and red bricks floors to bring warmth and intimacy to flexible living and accommodation spaces that will bring a smile to your face the moment you enter.
Set under exposed timber ceilings, the casual living meals pushes out from a solid timber kitchen complete with a 1200 mm Belling range with two ovens, 7 burners, a warming plate, a warning oven and a separate grill.
A high efficiency gas heater complements the large wood heater which keeps the spacious living room and indeed the entire home cosy all through winter. Both these areas, along with the main bedroom, all open to a vast paved outdoor precinct set amongst extensive indigenous gardens. Including a sparkling, solar heated in ground pool it delivers plenty of room for summer entertaining.
The remaining bedrooms, complemented by a study, have been cleverly designed to include mezzanine areas above the fitted beds making them ideal for play, storage or sleep-overs.
