If you've been looking for a property that mixes the layout of a trendy Manhattan garden apartment with the feel of Aussie country design; welcome home!
Architect designed to playfully interpret the house as a 'home within an Aussie shed', the visual balance between what could be in the middle of a farm paddock and what should be at the end of an elevator ride to the top of an exclusive CBD tower is amazing.
Clad in Colorbond Monument corrugated steel sheets the 167m2 home comes with 3 spacious bedrooms including a fully segregated master suite with ensuite and WiR. The 2 secondary bedrooms share a separate section of the home with the family bathroom and have door access to the alfresco sun deck.
The well-appointed kitchen has a brilliant array of Bosch appliances and a completely unique 40mm thick Blackbutt timber waterfall island benchtop.
The home's heart is the 75m2 central living area that directly connects out to the raised Blackbutt timber alfresco deck with its retractable sailcloth covers.
Along with most of the home, this central living space's keynote design features are the burnished concrete floors and high ceilings. These beautiful floors add another dimension of tactility to the home, whilst the high ceilings provide bright sunny volume.
Two massive sliding glass doors lead out to the alfresco and enable most of the northern wall of this magical living space to be opened up during our warmer times of the year.
These sliding glass doors and fixed windows greatly influence the solar passive/eco friendly meaning of the home as they provide passive heating to the burnished concrete floors during winter months.
Just around the corner from the alfresco there's a Finnish style sauna that can stay as an inclusion to this sale.
Now for the real shed. Clad in Colorbond Dune there's a whopping 105m2 and 5 bays of weekend tinkering space that will take 4 cars and your workshop.
The 2.57 acre block is currently sectioned into 2 paddocks and is ideal for horses, alpacas and sheep. It's well sheltered, and with the house site being to one side of the block there's plenty of utility space to add stables and an arena.
Essentially, 12 Marquess Place is a bright, bubbly and enjoyable property. Whilst being delightfully tactile, the architect didn't skimp on the streamlined modern touches.
There's a lovely feeling to this property.
