Award winning home with Japanese influences

Winner of the 2009 ACT Chapters People’s Choice Award for the Australian Institute of Architects, this three bedroom home defies the normal constraints of the 330m2 block, offering a bold and contemporary residence.

Externally the dark brickwork contrasted by the striking timber panels elicits immediate interest and intrigue when pulling up to the home. Entering the front gate you are met with lush landscaped gardens providing privacy to living areas and a southern courtyard ideal for the summer afternoons.

All the living spaces are located on the ground floor with glorious floor to ceiling windows letting in the winter sun, yet the carefully designed eaves blocking the sun in summer. The sleek, galley style kitchen features integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, pull-out pantry, gas cooktop and excellent storage options including soft close drawers. The kitchen overlooks a spacious meals area ensuring sustained connection with family and friends when utilising this fantastic space.

The lounge is sunken down from the meals area and features a gas fire place providing a wonderful chill out area for the whole family. Should you want to liven things up for entertaining family and friends this area transforms when utilising the lights along the window that change colours and the existing wiring ready to connect your speaker or surround sound system.

Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms all with built-in robes and ceiling fans, and views to Black Mountain Tower from the main bedroom.

Also located upstairs is the spectacular bathing area, inspired by Japanese bath-house traditions, divided into three sections and running the entire width of the home. It has double shower heads, an extra-large bath, separate toilet and powder room, all with high quality European fittings.

Designed around solar passive, sustainable, energy efficient and ‘hyper-functionalist’ principles, the home has comfortable year round living conditions with minimal need for any mechanical heating or cooling. The double glazed timber framed windows create a safe, quiet, energy efficient and comfortable home allowing an abundance of natural light. The positioning of the windows is designed to maximise cross ventilation in summer.

Finishing the home is the magnificent north facing rear yard and the double garage leading to the private street. Perfectly located in one of Gungahlin’s most sought after suburbs and only a short distance to the light rail network, excellent local schools, parks, Woolworths, cafés and hairdressers makes this unique home one not to be missed.
