This eco-intelligent home was designed by architect, Ben Croudace and built in 2010-2011. Strong lines with large expanses of sealed concrete walls, quartz, stone and glass create a level of minimalism that could, in less skillful hands, have seemed cold. Instead, these surfaces are balanced by the warm glow of timber and a sense of space and tranquil elegance reigns.
With dual access from Irvine Street and a ROW to the rear, the completely private location is fundamental to the unique charm of this home. An original stand of mature trees complemented by more recent landscaping has created a leafy, island-like environment that seems a very long way from Peppermint Grove.
