Tucked away off Fendalton RD, on a long North facing site sits this O’Neil Architecture quiet retreat. The site itself was challenging due to its shape, although thanks to the clever design, low pitched roofs and carefully chosen elevations of natural cladding the house blends seamlessly into the landscape.

Large open plan kitchen and living lead outside via large Fairview Aluminium sliders to undercover outdoor living. Clever design and engineering mitigated the need for a corner post so the seamless flow from inside to out is perfect for entertaining. The deck continues out to a BBQ area, raised planters and gardens which finishes this outdoor living beautifully. The living room features a gas fire with schist surround inside and out which adds a wonderful feature to the property. You can never get board relaxing in front of the fire on a cold winters day

The house features 2 bedrooms with the master bed offering large dressing room and ensuite. North facing the sun streams in during the afternoon into the late evening. A spa pool sits outside the master bedroom on the hardwood deck and captures the last of the sun, the perfect way to end the day.

A modest 2 car garage with large driveway means access to this property is a dream for the owners. Internal access leads through the laundry into the kitchen. Visitors arriving are lead down a cobble path to the front door, to the right a low schist landscape wall frames the entranceway path.

This modern Architectural home fits all the needs of its new owners who will have many years of comfort and enjoyment thanks to a great design and perfectly executed build.
