Commissioned to design this cottage in 1983 Gary Gilmour (architect from Paton Hill) had a brief to incorporate handmade mud bricks, recycled and reclaimed timbers, red bricks, windows and doors, with posts sourced locally from Gembrook Forest. A truly sustainable home in a natural bush setting.
The large mezzanine has two light filled bedrooms and landing with views to the tree tops. Downstairs features open plan living with dual fireplaces, a third bedroom and a spacious country kitchen with abundant bench space and inbuilt pantry. The bathroom has a fabulous claw foot bath, a separate WC and a laundry surrounded by crafted glasswork.
You will enjoy the ‘vibe’ here thanks to the foresight of the owner to recycle in 1983 and breathe new life into discarded bricks, beautiful timbers, stunning glass, and lead lights. It is an earthy, calming, creative space surrounded by visual treasures.
Outdoors on approx a 1200 m2 allotment the round paved areas and rear patio extend the warm interiors into the surrounding established garden including fruit trees and a vegetable garden bed. A circular driveway is a handy addition and there are several sheds set in the gardens for a studio or storage. Puffing Billy chugs past the rear boundary, an iconic feature of the precinct.
The location is perfect if you like to walk into town enjoy a coffee and local delights, there is an IGA, primary schools, sporting clubs, markets, and a well-established community all set within the delights of native gardens and birdlife. To connect with wider Melbourne there is a bus stop at the end of the street , from nearby Pakenham train station you are in the city in around one hour.
