Sustainable Luxury

Maria Gigney's architectural masterpiece, nestled within 8.1 acres of pristine bushland, stands as a testament to sustainable luxury and tranquillity. The property's solar passive design, coupled with its stunning views of Mount Wellington/kunanyi and the surrounding hills, creates an enchanting ambiance that captivates from every angle.

At 228 square meters, the main residence offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and expansive open-plan living areas that seamlessly merge to encourage gatherings and relaxation against a backdrop of panoramic vistas. The abundance of natural light, facilitated by double-glazed windows and doors, not only showcases the spectacular views but also enhances energy efficiency and insulation.

The heart of the home resides in its spacious commercial kitchen, equipped with European appliances, where culinary delights are crafted amidst the warmth of shared moments. Whether from the fully ducted heating and cooling systems or the crackling fire of the Morso wood heater, warmth permeates the air, fostering a sense of comfort and coziness.

Outside, the mod wood deck provides a vantage point for observing hand-raised orphaned wallabies and pademelons frolicking amidst the lush landscape. Explore further to discover hidden gems like the swim spa room, art gallery studio, and beautifully presented chalet. With development approval for additional chalets, the property offers boundless possibilities for expansion.

Privacy is paramount, with complete seclusion from neighbouring properties ensuring peace and tranquillity. The meticulously landscaped gardens, reminiscent of a botanical paradise, burst with vibrant colours and fragrant blooms, creating an intoxicating atmosphere that delights the senses.

Additional amenities include a double garage and a second studio, providing ample space for vehicles, hobbies, or creative pursuits. With the convenience of a town water supply, comfort is ensured without compromising the property's eco-friendly ethos.

Despite its serene setting, the property remains easily accessible, with just a ten-minute commute to the vibrant heart of Hobart CBD. Whether seeking a permanent sanctuary or a serene retreat, this eco-friendly oasis promises an extraordinary blend of sustainability, comfort, and natural beauty.

And beneath its unassuming facade, this home reveals its true treasures. With double-glazed 3.5-meter-high windows embracing the external walls on the north and eastern sides, and internal walls finishing at 2.1 meters high with internal glazing above, the home is perpetually bathed in light. Its glass walls foster a sense of connection to nature, while providing a feeling of nurturance, protection, and comfort.

Both bathrooms offer intimate courtyard views, ensuring privacy while still allowing residents to commune with the outdoors. Oriented to maximize passive solar gain in winter, the home is not only a sanctuary for its human inhabitants but also serves as a haven for wildlife, including several endangered species and rehabilitated orphaned wallabies who visit regularly.

The fully netted vegetable gardens and orchard harmoniously coexist with the wildlife, completing the ecosystem of this remarkable property. In every aspect, this home embodies the ideals of sustainable living, luxury, and a profound connection to the natural world.
