Architectural masterpiece with views to the sea …

Sugar Gum House was designed by Architects Ink and was the winner of the 2019 South Australian, Australian Institute of Architects, House of the Year – John S Chappel Award. This impressive home has a sculptural simplicity that is breathtaking and timeless. Double brick walls combine with an expanse of engineered and triple glazed glass to capture natural light and panoramic views over a rural landscape to the sea beyond.

Located on an elevated property above the historic village of Willunga, Sugar Gum House is an award winning, environmentally friendly home, close to fabulous restaurants, Golf Course, Willunga Farmers Market and McLaren Vale wineries. It is 10 minutes from sensational beaches and only 45 kms from Adelaide and the airport.

The sustainable home incorporates cutting edge technology and luxury elements. The limited palette of white painted brick and burnished concrete floors flow throughout, with hydronic underfloor heating and cooling. German Schuco triple glazing is across all three metre windows and sliding doors, with Luxaflex powered roller blinds. Built in cabinetry and interior joinery was designed by Architects Ink and created by craftsmen, which includes American Walnut veneer. Corian is featured in the wet areas.

The home is built into the sloping site to reduce its impact and maximise the westerly views. As a result, the home has a discreet street presence, revealing a simple single storey of white painted brickwork, contrasted with the warmth of Cedar panels on the double garage door.

A driveway leads to an additional secure garage built to store a caravan and equipment. The solar panels are conveniently attached to this roof. The back garden is fully fenced.

The home offers an extensive list of luxury, quality and sustainable features. Please contact Allison Blight for more detailed information and private open inspection times.
