Barn and rustic-inspired design meets containers! This vast plot offers the space to create an incredible private home and two private guest units at the other end of the plot. The open-plan floorplan includes an exposed steel roof structure with clerestory windows to bring in natural light and ventilation. The living area will open onto a lovely decked space from which to enjoy the surrounding views of the site. The left wing of the house will consist of the main bedroom, walk-in dressing room and an en-suite with an additional office space. The right wing will house the guest rooms and bathroom. Outside the kitchen, a lovely covered herb garden with a steel pergola will be found, with a planned vine-plantation to create an urban oasis.
The guest units, sure to be a hit on Airbnb soon, will each consist of a two bedroom unit with their own en-suites, an open-plan kitchen and living area and a small gas fireplace for those chilly winters. These units will face away from one another, ensuring privacy for all guests as they relax on the decked area.
