Set on 219 acres of scenic south coast country is this passive solar house.

The home contains many original design features and is the product of mud brick, stone and timber construction with double glazed windows throughout.

This makes for a solid and well insulated home, providing natural cooling in the summer and warmth in the winter months.

The home features both intimate spaces and large open plan living areas.

The house has evolved and includes modern technologies such as NBN, solar hot water booster, mains power and a new gas stove with electric oven.

These modern amenities complement the fully restored Rayburn slow combustion wood stove, door furniture crafted by a local blacksmith and handmade timber windows and doors.

A studio on the property is insulated and self-contained, inviting multiple uses depending upon needs. It is privately located away from the house.

Orchard and ornamental trees, garden and lawns surround the house.

The bulk of the property is regenerating bush, a refuge for native wildlife such as wedgetail eagles, wallabies, echidnas and an ever-changing collection of colourful birds.

Native figs, kurrajong trees and eucalypts can be seen amongst the granite tors.

The property is 11kms from Cobargo and close to the school bus route.
