“Hillview” …

The home:
An architectural innovation, this residence is a testament to the harmonious blend of Eco design & unbelievably comfortable living, set in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

Sustainable elegance was the design brief that bespoke designer/builder Phil Monaghan undeniably delivered. Showcasing a meticulously curated palette of natural & recycled materials to create a feeling of paired back luxury & authenticity all at the same time.

The eco-smart strawbale & quality linear board walls ensure incredible insulation, whilst polished concrete & Jarrah timber floors in the living spaces provide practicality and sophistication.

Designed to maximise solar passive gain for winter warmth & minimise solar access to keep cool during the summer months. With the initial intention of going off grid, carefully selected walls were constructed of compressed organic grown barley straw then concrete rendered & lime washed. Its northern orientation ensures its interiors are kept at an optimal temperature year round.

At the the heart of this home the country kitchen with top-tier appliances, Caesarstone benchtops, is a culinary space is designed to inspire. An entertainers dream, many large happy family gatherings have been hosted over the years. The extensive use of louvres & double glazed windows frame stunning vistas, allowing natural airflow & outside beauty seamlessly inside.

The generous open plan living, kitchen and dining space is a testament to a clever design & the desire to create warm, harmonious interiors incorporating a concealed sliding door dividing entertaining spaces. Soaring high curved ceilings, elegantly curved walls – all elements that not only enhance the sense of space, they also introduce a soft organic flow to the modern living environment.

At the heart of this family home, a beautifully crafted Cheminees Phillipe woodfire, provides both aesthetic beauty & functional warmth. Fueled by the farm’s own firewood timber lot, the fire not only anchors the room with its elegant design, but also promises cozy gatherings. It serves as a focal point around which daily life unfolds, offering not only warmth but an ambience that elevates the overall living experience.

Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning takes care of the rest of the climate control, yet it is rarely used as a result of the environmentally conscious design.

The recently added master suite is simply breathtaking, offering expansive views of the valley & its surrounding landscape. An ensuite of organic design, features a cleverly sculpted, curved straw-bale wall adding a touch of mid-century flair, with a handcrafted recycled timber vanity, premium bronze tapware & handmade Italian tiles.

The generous bedrooms all appointed with spacious built-in robes and access to their own shared bathroom featuring floor-to-ceiling tiles, sophisticated VJ paneling, premium bronze tapware, beautifully hand-crafted Tasmanian walnut timber towel rails & custom made ceramic towel hooks.

With wall to wall Jute floor coverings, the study combines curved ceilings, VJ wall paneling, a handcrafted timber desk & shelving with beautiful views across the garden & swimming pool.

Situated in the opposite wing the original master suite with views across the garden and valley beyond, has its own private and generously sized ensuite, housing a deep bath with countryside views.

Outdoor living is elevated to an art form with a custom pergola built with gigantic reclaimed Jarrah posts. An Escea volcanic rock gas fire is the perfect backdrop for this alfresco entertaining area with large built-in bbq. This beautiful dining space has sensational views of the valley, lush green lawns, deciduous trees & clipped hedges. Across the lawns the sparkling magnesium pool, sun lounges and outdoor shower await. A true sanctuary of relaxation and leisure!

Adding to the appeal for a large family with diverse creative needs is a studio; an additional layer of functionality, privately tucked in the corner of the garden.
