Set directly alongside a lake with views across lawn straight out to the water, our client’s home was designed in a U-shape to make the most of its special location in Numurkah.

The U-shape, which wraps around a central courtyard, ensures that a large proportion of the house benefits from a north-easterly aspect and is bathed in natural light. Taking advantage of the aspect helped to ensure the home achieved a 6-star energy rating.

A room with a view

Large windows run the length of the building alongside the lake, ensuring views can be enjoyed from the open-plan kitchen, living and dining space. A raked ceiling adds character to this bright and airy space, which can be shut off from the rest of the house for economical heating and cooling.

Entertaining’s a breeze

Our client was keen to have a home suited to entertaining, so an adjacent undercover outdoor area ensures guests can enjoy her beautiful setting in all seasons, as well as the private central courtyard. Her modern kitchen, with island bench, and walk-in-panty, were also designed to make catering a social event.

A home office was located at the front of the dwelling, ensuring our client could work comfortably from home. This home also features two bathrooms and a double garage.
