This recently built seven star energy rated mud brick retreat is an extremely comfortable home away from home. It has a fantastic warm country feel and features recycled timbers throughout - floors, walls, ceilings, eaves, pillars and beams. A huge open plan dining/living area adjoins a fully equipped spacious kitchen with beautiful recycled ironbark bench tops, wood stove plus a conventional stove top/oven. At meal times, everyone can sit around the huge 18 seat dining table. There are also highlight feature windows to let in lots of natural light and rustic bush views. The polished floor boards in the kitchen/dining area have to be seen to be believed. This casual and comfortable area also features a very efficient bluestone double-sided fire place. It faces both the generous dining area and a spacious lounge room with 52" large screen TV with sound bar, DVD player and CD player. Thermostatically controlled hydronic panels heat the rest of the house very effectively. The home is an ideal temperature all year round - it stays cool in summer and warm in winter. You'll be comfortable all year round in the most idyllic and relaxed of settings.
There are five bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed with spacious walk-in robe. Three other bedrooms all have a double bed plus a set of bunks. The fifth bedroom has two sets of bunks. All bedrooms and wet areas have sound proofing.
The main bathroom has a claw foot bath with olde world taps and a stained glass light shade to complete the ambiance. There are two other separate bathrooms which both incorporate a shower & basin. There are then also two separate toilets, and a laundry, all making it very comfortable and user friendly for large families or groups. All wet areas also feature beautiful natural multi coloured slate flooring for that extra warm and rustic feel.
The large fully equipped games room has an interchangeable pool & table tennis table and a table soccer table. There is also another TV and DVD player in this area. More high feature windows allow more great views of the bush outside and the entry of lots more natural light. Another entertainment area outside has a timber outdoor setting and a barbeque, all under a generous shade sail. This is also adjacent to a well maintained cleared area for the kids to run, play games or for you to really spread out. We cater for every taste and age!
So relax, in not just a house, but a home that's just a stone's throw from town. Fully equipped including books and DVDs so you don't need to bring a thing to relax and unwind.

Privacy and seclusion
This architect-designed mud brick master built home was crafted by skilled local tradesmen. It is one of the best examples of its type in the district and exudes character, quality and warmth thoughout. It truly is a home away from home. Set back from Trentham Road on a 5 acre bush block, it is ideally suited for privacy, seclusion and relaxation. There is a creek flowing through the property with two water feature ponds, and a view of the bush greets you from every room. The house is self sufficient with solar hot water(and gas boost), solar electricity panels, double-sided open wood fire place, hydronic heating and a huge rain water tank. The wonderfully restored and recycled ironbark & ghost gum timber comes from the historic Botany Bay woolsheds. It features throughout the house in many different ways. Pictures don't do justice to the warmth and impact when combined with the mud bricks and location. Come and see for yourself!
