Stunning Rammed Earth Home at the foot of Mount Wellington
Designed by Beachouse Architecture and situated in a commanding, hilltop position on the eastern slopes of Mount Wellington the home looks out onto picturesque bush forest and the lush surrounding hinterland. This contemporary property celebrates nature and sits lightly on the land, nestled amongst tall forest, yet only 15 minutes away from the Hobart city. The house was built to focus around simplicity, sustainability and connection with the environment, further enhanced by its 180 degree views through the trees to Hobart below and up to Mt Wellington's Organ Pipes above.
The building features beautiful, insulated rammed earth walls in key locations as well as metal cladding and a polished concrete slab. The rammed earth combines with the other natural materials to provide a warm, comfortable, internal ambience. The home takes great advantage of the volume created by the rising single roof plane, which elevates to the north to provide a view of the sky and treetops through cedar framed, double glazed, clerestory windows. The use of the large, argon-filled windows around the house also allows the light and natural bush scenes to be appreciated from all rooms.
The living/dining room and open-plan kitchen are spacious and north facing with direct access to the outdoor decks. In addition to these central living spaces, the property incorporates: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study and separate laundry. The master bedroom, on the upper level offers the opportunity to luxuriate in privacy and seclusion whilst enjoying the expansive view of the bush.
The interiors have been kept neutral with whites and greys plus the natural elements of stone and timber complements and results in a harmonious and calm atmosphere that embraces the indoor/outdoor lifestyle on offer. This home cleverly capitalises on the outlook and location whilst using environmentally sustainable strategies to achieve solar passivity. Bush walking enthusiasts will love the abundance of walking trails nearby that start within walking distance of the property and the bus to town stops on the main road.
