Earthly Riches - Heavenly Home

Looking for a home that you just want to reach out and touch; something that's tantalisingly different?

Rammed earth and straw bale homes project a creative magic that can't be replicated via the use of brick or cladding veneers. Their thick rampart-like texture-coated walls and curvaceous twists and turns create a unique set of visuals. Also, there have been many studies done that indicate these homes are both eco-friendly and thermally efficient.

On a country block, these rustic homes are literally in their element.

Designed to be aesthetically harmonious and thermally correct, this fabulous home incorporates a swirl of natural materials that lift-up from its polished concrete floors, crossing the 40cm thick walls to finally head up to the timber panelled ceilings. The doors and windows are all double-glazed timber with Blackbutt surrounds, subtly adding a fine touch of the tout naturel of the home.

The spacious open-plan living area includes a fully equipped kitchen with custom milled reclaimed Jarrah benchtops, walk-in pantry and all the mod-cons and is all-country. There's also a meals/dining room area and laid-back lounge area with twin double set doors leading out to the covered rear alfresco area and gardens. For our cooler months there's a solid fuel heater to add cozy warmth and feel to this wonderful and reflect space.

The home's 2 large bedrooms include a segregated master suite with very chic' new ensuite and walk-in robe, plus a large secondary bedroom with enough space for 2 beds or bunks.

In addition to the new ensuite a new family bathroom with separate WC have been added to the home, effectively providing an element of sparkle and new-era practicality. Beautifully appointed the bathroom features floor to ceiling tiles, frameless shower with rain-head and excellent fittings.

The 1.59 acre block is beautiful too! Along with having numerous established trees and shrubs that provide a great element of privacy and shelter its predominantly wire-net boundary fenced for good pet control.

Essentially, this is an engaging, tasteful and delightfully tactile property. In its current form its ideal for a single person, couple or small family group, but it could be extended within is current footprint or via the use of situ-sympathetic building materials.

It's characterful, its inviting and it's fun. Now it can be all yours!
