Lake George House is a timeless and stylish 3 to 4 bedroom home, recognised with an ACT Architecture Award for Sustainability in 2010 and revered for it's amazing views over Lake George, the likes of which are usually reserved for postcards. When you enter the winding driveway at Lake George House, you know you are leaving the noise of the city thirty minutes behind you. This 18Ha private and natural wonderland is where parrots, seasonal birds, swamp wallabies, echidnas and a myriad of other cute marsupials have all made their homes amongst the gums, wild flowers and native orchids. With the native fauna in mind the landscaping surrounding the home is designed to be low maintenance and low key, designed to sit gently within the natural environment - the native chorus is music to the ears. Lake George House is based on five identical 8 square metre modules, inspired by Balinese design with an Australian Colonial twist, constructed from insulated sandwich precast concrete panel walls with pyramidal roofs vented by solar chimneys - a series of pavilions that deliver a unique and minimal feeling that aligns well with the surrounds of the house - the whole package sits well on the land and feels at ease with the very Australian outlook. A state of the art solar photovoltaic electricity and solar evacuated tube hot water with an underground rainwater tank and waterless compost toilets ensure the total sustainibality. This home is completely autonomous, passive solar, and ready for the future - a contemporary rural executive residence that is equally at ease as an award winner and the thinking families home. The home is currently configured as a three bedroom home with a TV room, however a simple conversion to this room would transform the home to a four bedroom residence. The master bedroom is very large and offers commanding views over the escarpment. A study/ library and a formal sitting room warmed by a slow combustion fire allow for some separation from the open plan kitchen and family room set up. This area opens onto a large terrace overlooking the Lake George and its changing faces. Whilst it would be easy to sit and look at the view all day, there is still plenty to do for the more energetic including a labyrinth based on a design from Avignion Cathedral in France, this was laid out to encourage those who visit to take their time and enjoy the sounds and sights of the natural bush setting.
