The Design

A large open-plan kitchen, living and dining room with space for the whole family to gather together. This space features an open fire-place; perfect for the cold wintery nights, warming this secluded refuge.  For the balmy summer nights, the living-dining space can be opened out onto the expansive timber deck – perfect for alfresco dining with countryside views. 4-bedroom country home provides the perfect retreat for an escape from city life, back to nature.

Sustainability features.

The home sits looking out over a private dam, passively cooling the immediate surrounds. During summer, the wind swept across the dam brings a welcome cooling breeze across the deck area, filtering through the windows into the home.

The Bonnie Doon House makes a feature of using sustainably sourced Australian timbers, both internally and externally, to tie this home into its natural landscape. The Victorian Ash board and batten cladding and Tasmanian Oak decking will naturally weather with time, silvering off to create a rusticated effect. The timber is juxtaposed against the vertical Colorbond corrugated sheet cladding, which creates a successful contrast of texture and materiality.

Other sustainable features of this home include a large 4000L water tank for rainwater re-use, double glazed windows, window shading, low VOC paints, high-grade insulation to walls, floor and ceiling, efficient water fixtures, and ceiling fans.
