The Top 100 homes in the country achieve Gold Reserve status each year, and proceed to the National Finals.
These are given to entrants who achieve 90% of the available points and judged to be at least 80% above industry standard.
Conceived as a show home with soul, this refined three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence exudes a sense of calm and serenity.
A soft, natural outlook complements the down-to-earth palette of materials. Cedar-clad wall linings are subtly enhanced with recessed LED strip lighting.
The open-plan living layout adds a separate lounge with high raking ceiling and window seat. Overheight glazing is another feature here. A covered open-air retreat serves as a versatile extension of the home.
The kitchen is a multi-faceted space too, with a walk-in pantry to one side and study area to the other.
Ideal for entertaining, the dining area opens to another deck for enjoying meals alfresco. A feature cedar slat eyebrow roof extends over this spot creating shade and filtered light.
Elongated along the property’s east-west axis, this well-thought through 227sqm northfacing design is optimised for passive solar energy. The home embraces winter sun, while also providing exterior cover to temper strong sunlight.
