2024 HIA Australian Project Home

HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards

Winner: The Rural Building Company

This stunning and elegant home provides a timeless farmhouse style with the comfort of urban living. With a generous, refined layout, this home effortlessly captures stunning 180-degree panoramic bushland views from the living areas and kitchen. The expansive verandahs with exposed rafters, complemented by natural timber features, infuse character and warmth into the design. The gabled low-e glazed frontage, adorned with a striking stone feature, leaves a lasting impression. The grand free form living space boasts a raked ceiling connecting the home's elevation. Polished concrete floors throughout the central living area create a seamless flow between the back and front outdoor spaces, providing effortless alfresco living. This home embodies contemporary luxury and serene country living.
