This property, "Kilima", sits atop a hill 200m. above the surrounding countryside. The veiws are stunning and encompass near 360degrees, yet privacy is absolute.
The structure is unique in that is built of "Hebel" blocks. this is a lightweight concrete possessing remarkable qualities of themal and sound insulation, making it a delight to live in. The outer walls are solid and eight inch thick [inner walls a mix of four and six with large tinted windows imbedded into the blockwork. Worries about fire are lessened by the fact that Hebel is virtually fireproof.The home has been owner built with meticulous care over eight years, completion being 2004.
The house has been architectually designed in a boomerang shape to take advantage of the panoramic veiws. The front faces north, the rear south; tracking the sun from sunup to sundown, a lovely feature during a cold winter.
The envioronment is peace and tranquility, and feels remote, yet five minutes away by car is a busy regional shopping centre. Hobart is within 30 minutes and the airport 15 minutes. Also, within 15 minutes are four golf courses and two beaches.
There are two sheds and a large 8m x 9m workshop/garage which is part of the house. The workshop has an automtive pit, wood heater, shower and toilet, remotelly controlled 5m panel lift door and 3 phase power. This could easily be converted to a flat, which it was for three years while the house was being built.
A large kitchen with granite bench tops is part of an open plan encompassing dining and family rooms, including a heat pump, or reverse cycle air conditioner. Off this is a formal dining and lounge area, with a wood heater; another large area. the main bedroom is complete with an ensuite and walkin robe. The remaining two bedrooms are equipped with builtin robes. The roomy study could also become a fourth bedroom, if required. The bathroom is fully tiled and comes with a large spa bath.
The water tank is huge, 20000 gallons, and is buried alongside a fertile vegetable garden amidst large landscaped gardens. With so much water capacity and a roof offering so much catchment area, water is not a problem.
