Architecturally designed and withstanding the test of time is this magnificent home in Port Sorell. Admired by many over the years for its sculptural exterior design and interior layout, many stopping on the way past to photograph or chat to the owner. Showing off and standing out from the crowd is what it does best.
Designed by a renowned architect responsible for, and has won many awards for, many of Tasmania's most recognisable hotels and buildings, has a desire to create buildings whose qualities are not just for him alone, but which are also enjoyable for the general public and more particularly for the actual users of the building themselves.
You will be in awe of the home and its surroundings from the moment you step inside the gates. The sealed driveway beckons you to come closer as it meanders its way past the glass facade and disappears behind the house, to double garage at the rear of the property giving you backyard access. Stepping into the home feels like a protective cocoon as you enter the glass atrium first, acting as a heat barrier for extra warmth and protection, and allowing for all day sun that is next level. Doors on either end act as draught tunnels when open to allow for fresh air and cooling when the days get too warm.
Tas oak flooring through out the level one and two, an extra layer of warmth to the home and adds to the ambience that has been created through the use of natural timber and various other materials. On the lower level you will find a lovely kitchen with modern appliances and plenty of bench space, adjacent to a sunny sitting area, perfect for enjoying the sun with family and friends. Also, on this level is the cosy private loungeroom with wood heater overlooking the pretty backyard with access to the outdoor deck and entertaining area, plenty of room to entertain in style and enjoy those warm summer months that this area is so popular for. A guest bedroom, a toilet and laundry can also be found on this level along with plenty of storage options. Step up one level and you have a beautiful dining space, second sitting area and a study nook tucked away under the stair cavity. It is in this area that you get to appreciate the intricate design of this home and fully appreciate the space. A set of winding stairs leads to the third level where you will find two spacious bedrooms, bathroom, and plenty of storage, utilising every inch of space. Raked ceilings with beautiful timbers, skylights and window hatches add to the design and functionality of this part of the home.
Outside, the established gardens have been planted with consideration in mind, taking into account the winter sun and summer shade. The front garden, pretty as picture, frames the home beautifully, so as not to take away from its glory and the secure backyard offers plenty of room to add your own touch amongst the several outdoor dining experiences. The garage has power connected and plenty of workshop storage and is accessed by the asphalt driveway from the front.
If its bespoke you are after, then is sure does come in spades. This is more than just a home, it's a piece of art.
