The history within the walls of this builders own, passive design mud brick home offers an unrivalled opportunity for true ecological living. Each design feature and material used to bring to life this elegant four bedroom home has its own unique story but it is the overall concept that seems to melt the home into the natural landscape of just over 5 acres of private, native bush retreat.
From the handmade mud bricks, substantial exposed historic bridge timber frame, 100 year old Baltic pine feature wall panelling and lined cathedral ceilings, bluestones saved from the Flemington abattoir with solid timber window and door frames this property has been painstakingly crafted from reclaimed natural materials.
The 29 square home offers two generous bedrooms, large private master suite and study, open family dining room, entertainers kitchen, three living areas and a separate upstairs sun-drenched studio boasting distant water views through the tree tops. An additional 14 squares of veranda and substantive outdoor entertaining area are perfect for family or holiday living. But it is the features that elevate this home with leadlight windows, gold taps used throughout, original four panelled doors, woollen drapes and north-facing clerestory windows.
The kitchen is the heart of the home with 80 year-old hardwood benchtops, electric appliances, large walk in pantry and individually selected hand glazed tile splashbacks.
The open dining room offers access through double doors to the wisteria-covered pergola over the north-facing sheltered courtyard. The separate lounge has a large feature fireplace; the master bedroom and games room also have private fireplaces all with steel damper control. Substantial overhead storage is an additional feature throughout the house.
Extensive utilities include; double garage plus double carport with an additional 11 squares of lock up workshop, large dam and a 45,000 litre water tank.
This private native oasis in the tightly held Bells Beach precinct with its considered environmental and design features is certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase.
