Log home - Hand crafted custom built Canadian log homePhone enquiry code for this property: 2734
This one of kind log home is fully furnished and is being sold as displayed.
Built in 2005, the home is positioned in a saddle with a north facing deck of over 100 square metres. The log structure is hand crafted with locally harvested select pine logs sitting upon a brick and stone clad base wall. The entire building is erected on a concrete slab extending to the verandah with stairs and deck, all paved with bluestone.
The log walls are precision, saddle notched and chinked externally and internally with polyurethane sealant. The eaves and external cladding are silvertop ash, colourbond fascias and teracottoa roof tiles. The window system is timber/aluminium composite double glazed toughened glass. The building is designed to meet the highest level of fire protection and self regulate its indoor temperature via superior insulation and energy rating.
The house consists of 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms and has sleeping for 9 people, with plenty of room to cater for roll/fold away bedding. Meticulous design effort has ensured a generous open feel that modern Australian design demands whilst not compromising the alpine Canadian log home feel.
Two fires warm the house in winter. There is a continuous burning wood heater that is centrally located in the house allowing radiant heat to fill the space easily. On the northern end, a very large open fire place reaches 5.5 metres internally, broken by a 800kg ironbark mantle piece. Flanked by 2 giant picture windows, this is truly the ultimate winters day escape.
The house has mains power, 48,000 litres of drinking water and an onsite state of the art sewerage treatment plant.
Positioned on 25 acres approximately 1.5 hours form Melbourne, the property lies with medium - high density bushland. The surrounding trees are native messmates and peppermints. The undergrowth immediately surrounding the house has been cleared to within 45 metres from the house. The grass has naturally grown and is maintained with a ride-on mower.
A long winding gravel driveway enters the property form the west, climbs a gentle incline towards the house that is centrally located on the land. Positioning the house has ensured the the occupants take full advantage of valley views, breezes and natural drainage while taking full advantage of northern winter sun.
Other notable features is a 128 sq metre shed with roller door and 80 cubic metres of split hard wood for burning.
