Woodend architect's trophy home offering

A recently auctioned Woodend offering remains for sale at $1.2 million.

The 57 Andrew Avenue had been listed at $1.2 million plus. Local architect Damien Summers created the retreat on 1.6 hectares of land on the town’s outskirts.

Joan Gladman has the bespoke design listing.

Its east-west orientation soaks up light and sun, allowing not just the living rooms, but also two bedrooms to face north.

A vine-covered pergola provides summer shade whilst allowing welcome winter sun to flood the house.

A beautiful grey masonry wall defines the elegant library with its mountain ash shelving.

In this wall, a Cheminees Philippe slow combustion/open fire is capable of heating the entire house.

The property has a six star energy rating, thanks to double glazing, LED lighting, insulation and other efficiency measures.

There is a three stage sewerage system, stormwater management and underground soakage uphill from trees.

Rainwater harvesting involves a two stage rainwater collection system, and gravity fed garden taps capitalise on this in the thriving orchard.
