'Vogelweide' - Birds' Meadow

'Vogelweide' - a stroke of genius and without doubt one of Gundaroo Village's finest residences. The brief in 2007 for owners Wolfgang and Antje was to create a country estate which was inspired by their European roots and which also considered Gundaroos historical past and life in the harsh Australian climate. The result is a bespoke home which resonates personality and is instantly welcoming. It's easy to over modernize a home at the expense of its soul and Antje and Wolfgang have deliberately avoided this, creating instead a Georgian-inspired masterpiece where the spartan interiors allow the opulent features and fittings to be the hero. Such examples include: hand forged draw, door and window hardware by Bouvet; Carrara marble kitchen bench tops sourced from Tuscany, hand painted Delft style tiles; Lacanche oven; flagstone floors; custom made Tasmanian Oak solid doors; and tilt & turn windows (double glazed) created by Paarhammer Joinery, Victoria.

Double brick construction was the obvious choice for weathering hot summers and cold winters and this is where the in-floor hydronic heating comes in to its own, fuelled by a heat pump and supported by a 6kW solar panel system. An in-built Jotul brick fireplace in the lounge and a Jotul stove in the studio combine with ducted evaporative cooling to keep you comfortable year round. The floor plan has been designed to harness the sun whilst providing flexibility for guests to stay in their own space separated by a breezeway. All rooms are afforded glimpses out to verdant grounds with many rooms opening out through generously sized French doors to shady verandahs.

The commitment and thought given to the design and construction of the residence is also mirrored outdoors in the outstanding country gardens. Vogelweide's gardens were featured in a 2017 article by the Australian Garden History Society which describes it's gardens as "guided by the principles of beauty, simplicity and usefulness, as well as a liking for asymmetry and a longing for shade and privacy". Indeed the residence rests at the centre of 5,695sqm of landscaped grounds with native and non-indigenous plantings, fully irrigated from the licensed bore. Two sheltered courtyards are shaded by large Plane trees, while the outdoor kitchen, workshop and garage are hidden under a wisteria arbour and bush roses in full bloom. Twenty-four Truffle-inoculated oak trees (12 years old) are producing truffles and one gets the feeling of walking amongst an arboretum with Maple trees, Umbrella Pines (Pinus Pinea), Cyprus, Juniper and even a 3.5 metre Wollemi Pine providing structure and a micro-climate for lush plantings of many old world roses, peonies, spring bulbs and Mediterranean herbs. It truly is a sight to behold, designed for year-round colour whilst also attracting and providing a home for bird life and maximising privacy.
