Fernshaw - Architectural Design in a Magical Mountain Setting


Designed by Freda Thornton of Simon and Freda Thornton Architects and built on this fabulous site in 1985, Fernshaw sits in a beautiful private garden setting of just over 5 acres, the grounds are tranquil and flow from gardens with glorious mature trees to grassed areas. Turritable Creek forms the eastern boundary and a superb natural swimming pool is set into the garden, one could be mistaken for thinking you had landed in a sanctuary or health retreat.

With an abundance of natural light and architectural angles and comprising three living areas, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Lofty cathedral ceilings and large picture windows throughout create a wonderful sense of airiness and elevation. An amazing conservatory/atrium space, a stunning double glazed picture window that spans two levels and looks out through a curtain of Clematis and Virginia creeper and a calm that only quality can bring. Built of Daniel Robertson bricks and cedar the owners and their architect have created a home which is very livable and has stood the test of time.

Entry is via the main living area comprising lounge and dining, gorgeous slate flooring with underfloor heating, kitchen with Gaggenau cooking appliances and built in pantry. Excellent laundry/mudroom, separate wc and integrated two car garage.

A central staircase leads to mezzanine level living featuring jarrah flooring and balcony access, main bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk in robe, study/ fourth bedroom with good storage. Another short level up are two bedrooms and a second bathroom both bedrooms have access to the outdoors.

Oregon, Cedar and Jarrah have been used to highlight the home and provide a beautiful natural feel throughout, piped music, details to fixtures including marble tiled bathrooms and Grohe fittings are still in pristine condition and confirm the quality of the build.

A paradise only minutes from the Mount Macedon village.
