Award winning property with thought, care and foresight set into the design.
A spectacular home designed for the conditions of Bellingen. It's any wonder that it was awarded "HIA Winner 2004 - Best Custom Built House in NSW in price category" and was also a finalist for "Most Innovative Use of Steel" in the same year.
The construction materials of steel, zincalume corrugated metal, timber and clear finished plywood contribute to the earthy feel of this amazing home and combine seamlessly with the surrounding landscape with a very minimal environmental impact.
The feeling you get when you drive up the drive way and enter the breezeway entry between the two pavilions is wow this home is something very special.
This is a home you can live in and enjoy in many different ways.
Essentially, the home is designed in two pavilions joined by the common entry area and a convenient elevated walkway from one outdoor space to the other. It always feels that you are living amongst the tree tops.
In the first pavilion is the kitchen which flows through to the main living area and outside to the timber deck with splendid bush and mountain views. A loft above the kitchen houses the main bedroom, bathroom and walk in robe. The soaring ceiling and glass wall together contribute to fill this space with natural light.
The second pavilion houses the second bedroom and bathroom, and a 4.8m by 4.8m room currently used as an artist's studio. There is also a spacious 4.8m by 5.4m verandah room to cater for all your outdoor living needs linked by walkway to the main lounge area. This seems to be the most lived in space in this extraordinary home.
Metal louvers provide sun and breeze control for this very comfortable space which is complemented by the use of timber and steel wire railing on the northern side and across the adjoining walkway to the deck on pavilion 1.
A curved driveway and landscaped gardens provide privacy from the street and your vehicles are catered for in the 2 car open garage underneath the main pavilion. Entry to the home is via stairs between the two pavilions and onto the generous entry deck which houses the laundry and provides access to both sides of the home.
This property is perfectly located within a short walk to a convenience store and medical centre and just a little further to the Bellinger River and cafes and shops in the CBD. With its elevated position in a private setting you can be assured of a peaceful and relaxed lifestyle in this award winning home.
If entertaining is your thing, solitude or you just appreciate beautiful things homes that just work both aesthetically and practically don't come available very often, please take the time to enjoy a look through this masterpiece.
Phone Peter Stone or Rain Foran to arrange an inspection at any time that suits your timetable.
