Having been inspired by the vision of an award winning designer/builder in conjunction with a professional Feng Shui consultant, this contemporary residence combines energy efficiency with the 'perfect feel' to produce a true masterpiece which was a finalist in the 2005 HIA-ANZ Housing Awards. The main requests from the owners during the design process were for an open feeling and good light, passive solar benefits and for fluid interaction between indoor and outdoor areas. As a result the entertaining deck is designed to receive substantial shading from the sun, just as the kitchen has been located to be north facing to allow for some winter heat gain during the drop of the sun's angle to 36deg. Opposing openings in the house have been positioned to maximise cross-ventilation, taking into account warm air movement and the injection of cooler air from the south-west, voided to the north by the hill. The parents retreat is separate from the other rooms and flows out to the veranda though a pair of beautifully appointed jarrah French doors. A feature has been made of the cantilevered staircase leading up from the ground level, which has a mid-section deck that visually mirrors the main deck above it and the angled roof line. A similar pick-up on theme occurs in the ensuite, where a peaked roof projects out over the spa, cleverly positioned by picture windows to capture the stunning bush view. As you step out of the living room and on to the deck, you truly feel like you are on a much larger acreage property because it is whisper quiet and there is no-one to be seen or heard. Privately tucked away on over half an acre away from the road, this elegant residence is a rare opportunity to secure a timelessly appointed family sanctuary in an absolute blue ribbon location looking out over the Canning River. With demand for homes such as this increasing with time, it won't be long before the next couple falls in love with this property and snaps it up.
