Luxury Home Building

Rural Luxury Home

The fertile region of Toodyay, situated 85km from Perth city, provided the ideal location for a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis without being too far away. Capturing the amazing views, keeping the Australian feel and making an amazing contemporary energy efficient home were our main priorities.

Stunning Setting

Stunning timberwork is the standout feature. Full height double glazed cedar joinery, Blackbutt tongue and groove solid timber flooring and a stringy bark deck gives the home the warmth and coziness of a forest retreat. The decking is carried over the sides of the pool to create a 'waterfall' effect with smooth edges and symmetrical design emphasising the timber motif. The design incorporated wide verandahs around the entire perimeter of the house. This not only keeps the harsh sun away from the glazed walls but offers solace from the elements regardless of the wind direction. Being far away from the city, the home needed to be energy efficient. It is totally self sufficient, with water and sewerage, while the verandahs and double glazing keeps the cooling bills to a bare minimum.
