SITUATED AMID the sleeping beauty mountain range in Tasmania, Australia, this new 7,500 SF heavy timber structure home, clad in local stone with a clay roof, has the appeal of an old English Cottage. The interior is designed to make the most of natural light and the extraordinary views of the mountains and the preserved wilderness. Interior stone accents, exposed timbers and furniture hand-hewn by the artisan builder connect the house with the outdoors.
The home utilizes several sustainable features, including ground source heat pumps, rain water harvesting, photovoltaic supplementation of the electrical service, and locally-milled and sustainably-forested timber from the forests of Tasmania.
