Architect designed, solar-passive, sustainable home of extraordinary character. Completed in 2012, this remarkable split-level home features clean, sculptural lines, outstanding rural views and privacy.
The atmosphere of this lovely home is one of lightness and space, with specially designed windows creating remarkable lighting effects and soaring ceilings following the contours of the roof.
The spacious, open-plan design is balanced around a formal entrance which leads to each of two wings.
The northern wing houses the lounge, dining and living areas. A fabulous, double-sided wood fire separates the formal lounge from the large living area. A very big, north-facing deck, with automatically closing Vergola roof, is accessed from the living area, creating a vast all-weather entertaining space.
The state-of-the-art kitchen is divided from the dining area by a long breakfast bar. It features full-width, dramatic, louvred windows, Caesar stone benches, a large capacity range (electric oven, gas cook top) and a very generous walk-in pantry with double insulation to remain cool.
The vast main bedroom, with beautiful northerly views, walk-in-robe and large en-suite, is also housed in this main wing. The ultra-modern en-suite is marked by double vanity basins and a huge shower recess.
‘Astiden Springs’ represents the best of environmentally friendly, sustainable living. Well insulated, there is no need for air conditioning because of the air flow created by cross-ventilation. Hydronic heating, solar hot water and low wattage power-saving controls are housed in a sculptural tower, a key design feature of this iconic, rural, 21st Century Australian home.
