Custom Built Home With Extensive Views

The Client Brief – To build their dream home

A couple with three daughters had dreamed of building a unique, large family home to capitalize in the fantastic views over their rolling property in Charleston. The home was to be a combination of a traditional cottage and a large contemporary style modern home.

Energy Efficiency

The home is fitted with double glazed windows throughout, achieving a high energy efficiency for this home in the Adelaide Hills. A significant amount of glass is North facing, showcasing breath taking views and maximising the benefit of the natural solar heating effects of the sun, particularly capturing the morning sun.

Hot water efficiency is achieved using an evacuated tube hot water system heating a large 450-litre tank.

The combustion wood heater takes care of those wintery Adelaide Hills chilly nights.

This is a large home that blends seamlessly into its environment & is testimony to the owner’s vision and design brief. Shire Homes is proud to be associated with this beautiful home in the Adelaide Hills
