A cohesive materiality lends a soothing calm and timber accents soften and warm the otherwise minimal white spaces, harmonising with the natural bush surrounds. Clever architectural design maximises solar orientation, glorious panoramic views to arresting mountain ranges.

This four-bedroom home is a benchmark in efficiency, flexibility, sweeping proportions and bespoke detailing. Double fronted with dual living arrangements, serious sustainable credentials; the home is an elegant response to site, climate and ideally malleable to multiple family configurations, occasions, possibilities.

A thoughtful collaboration between a committed builder and passionate team, all working together to support local charities, has generated stunning results. Named in honour of Rachel Makinson, the first female physicist to hold the position of chief research scientist at CSIRO, it is a fitting locale for a project that champions the skills and craftmanship of women working within the construction industry.

Light grey stacked bond brickwork and soft white timber panelling lend a subtle glamour to the form, nestled within a beautiful mix of natives and exotics that with maturity will shelter and shade, further merging the home within landscape.

A cathedral like hall, set with delicate dew drop, luxygen pendant lighting, acts as a spine connecting the fully self-contained first dwelling to the larger family home. A timber slat feature wall seamlessly integrates additional storage and clerestory windows flood the impressive entryway with daylight.

Designed for ageing in place and ideal for multigenerational living, the appendant open kitchen, dining, living frames soothing views to reserve and wetland. Complete with large bedroom and ensuite bathroom, this cohesive self-contained arena, could equally be utilised as parental oasis, teen retreat, guest accommodation.

Raked ceilings, banks of bi-fold glazing, clerestory windows, lend an experience of airy celebration to the primary kitchen, dining and living area, merging with the peaceful ambience of the northern courtyard.

The sleek, white on white kitchen with integrated appliances, floats effortlessly at one end of the large space. Handcrafted oak pendant lighting, softly illuminates the long island bench, countered in natural stone. To one side a full butler’s kitchen provides hidden workspace and storage.

Wee Jasper stone retaining walls edge lushly planted garden beds and a recycled blackbutt pergola shades outdoor kitchen with electric barbecue. A home office flows to laundry and garage. Floor to ceiling Italian tiling in gentle greys, pop against soft oak cabinetry, within all three luxury bathrooms.
Pure wool carpets and solid core golden ash doors grace the sequestered bedrooms. And an impressive 6000L underground water tank, heat pump, solar array and invertor, gifts a knock-out environmental rating.

Surrounded by green spaces with roads and paths optimised for pedestrians and bikes, Strathnairn is a new suburb with a focus on family and outdoor connection. Close to the Ginninderry Conservation Corridor, the home takes in breathtaking views of the Brindabellas, Paddys Park, The Link, Strathnairn Arts, Shepherds Lookout, and Bushwalking trails are all close to hand. The dynamic Belconnen precinct is 10 minutes away and it is a mere 17 minutes to the CBD by car.
