After living in an onsite caravan for almost two years, Hobbs client’s Duncan and Kathy were ecstatic with the completion of their new (153m2) four-bedroom high-set home perched unobtrusively onsite the sloping landscape. Set amongst rugged bush terrain and subsequently rated BAL 29, the steel frame home is accessed via an incredibly steep communal gravel and dirt driveway with multiple hairpin turns (estimated at 40 degrees pitch in some areas). The northerly facing aspect is complimented with full length outdoor entertaining decks (2.4 metres wide) to the front and rear which have a with great relationship to the open plan kitchen, lounge and dining, boasting (almost) floor to ceiling windows in each room to take advantage of the Scenic Rim views. The entire home has a very harmonious relationship to the surrounding environment with our client’s currently undertaking the streetscape appeal in their own time.
