Looking for something truly unique…?
Then this fabulous 4- bedroom pole house with its superb use of rich timbers and recycled materials may just be for you. The exclusive home is set within 2,000m2 approx. and for lovers of unique timbers this is just the house for you to put your own individual stamp upon.
The residence sits on the site of the old blacksmith’s shop, with the foundry having sat directly underneath the centre of the house. Designed by Archicentre, the design is based upon the mountain house, which typically has the front door at the back. It intelligently utilises its northern orientation for the living room space with its soaring Oregon and Mountain Ash cathedral ceilings and recycled floors, and at the same time shields from the harsh summer sunshine in its deep front Mountain Ash verandah where many an hour can be whiled away with a book or a glass of wine. The spacious and well-appointed kitchen with European appliances sits directly in the heart of the home, whilst the four bedrooms, bathroom with original 150 year old cast iron claw foot bath, powder room and laundry/shower room surround this space. The back ‘front’ door opens to the covered, jarrah decked patio and lovely shaded fernery pergola area to entertain family and friends. A cornucopia of citrus trees sits at the side of the house abundant with lemons, mandarins, oranges as well as kaffir and Tahitian limes. There are also wicking vegetable gardens to provide a sustainable lifestyle.
Other features of this fabulous property are the reclaimed tallow timber floors and doors, tallow wood panelling, solar panels with 5kw inverter to drastically cut your power bills; and three-quarter retro fit double glazing. The large three-car and workshop American barn with a mezzanine floor is fully lined and has a tallow wood feature wall.
A haven for bird and native wildlife, you can expect to hear the sounds of fairy wrens, or watch the slow, yet determined, pace of echidnas for which the property is a refuge.
A location that ticks so many boxes, it is just five minutes to the village, and five to ten minutes to school and kindergarten. And who needs a car when the railway station is just two minutes away, taking you to restaurants, the office or university?
