Built in 2005, the log structure was hand crafted with locally harvested pine logs sitting on a brick and stone clad base wall. The building was built on a concrete slab extending to the verandah with stairs and deck, all paved with bluestone.
A long winding gravel driveway enters the property from the west, towards the centrally located house, to take full advantage of valley views, breezes and northern winter sun.
The open plan design includes two bathrooms, a great room with large open fireplace, featuring an ironbark mantle piece. Additional heating is provided by another wood burning heater.
Agent, Andrew Clarke, told SCHWARTZWILLIAMS, 'The log walls are precision, saddle notched and chinked externally and internally with polyurethane sealant. The eaves and external cladding are silvertop ash, colourbond fascias and teracottoa roof tiles.'
The building is designed to meet the highest level of fire protection with undergrowth cleared to within 45 metres of the house. The surrounding trees are native messmates and peppermints.
