Dwelling connected with nature on Scotland Island

With great attention to detail, this beautifully appointed and unique home on Scotland Island, New South Wales, Australia has been designed by its architect owners, Walknorth Architects. Built on a sunny and sheltered block, the home features water views through tall spotted gums into Elvina Bay and the Ku-ring-gai National Park. The home adjoins a bush reserve, idyllically located in a tranquil and private bush setting which creates a peaceful ambiance and provides a wide sense of space.

The property was extensively built from red ironbark, blackbutt and spotted gum timbers in a two storey solar passive design capturing the sun throughout the day yet excluding the summer heat with the use of expansive roof overhangs. The open plan upper level with high and angled ceilings completely opens via wide sliding glass and timber doors creating an extension of space from the living room to a huge entertaining deck and a sandstone terrace. The galley style kitchen and dining room are also located here along with a wood burning stove and a covered deck which is a great place to relax in a hammock to enjoy the view.

Adjoining the upper deck is the spacious main bedroom with a walk in robe and the main and a streamline bathroom with double shower and bath with both rooms completely opening out to the beauty and seclusion of the bush. The lower level consists of a second bedroom and an open studio or third bedroom which flows onto a lower terrace featuring a sandstone seat creating an inspiring space to have as a home office. The second bathroom and laundry are also located on this level.

This gorgeous property is currently listed at $720,000 from here.
