30 years ago, an architect had finished drawing up a large formal design for 1 Raymond Street, Speers Point when the owners started researching pole homes.

They began exploring the idea of incorporating exposed beams, texture and and layered living; much like the surrounding hillside – and they knew that this is what the home should reflect.

Nature never goes out of fashion; so earthy slate was chosen for the kitchen and bathrooms, while exposed timber beams connect you to the surrounding bushland.

The front balcony and cleverly placed windows ensure a view of the blue shimmering lake sparkling below.

Like the branches of a tree, there are 4 levels that layer warm family living areas with quiet nooks.

From the welcoming formal entry hall to private areas like the rear sunroom and ground floor rumpus room.

Wide open spaces with beautiful views over the suburbs and lake; no matter your mood – you’ll find your space here.

Sounds of laugher and games from the in-ground pool float up to the northerly al-fresco balcony;

while the song of whip birds, rosellas and lorikeets rings out from the treetops beside the windows.

Inside, a fireplace in the living room invites you to sit beside it in the colder months listening to records, while keeping the dining loft warm for entertaining.

The kitchen will never be bare when there is a productive vegetable garden downstairs, fresh pumpkins, herbs and greens at always hand.

And a view like this from the kitchen window –  yes please!

A large room used as a study on level 2 has built in library style shelving, and views direct to the treetops.

The rear sunroom would be perfect for a studio space with direct access to the backyard and the current owners once used it as a perfect little sanctuary for their pottery sculpting.

The landscape gardens include formal hedging of gardenias, fresh vegetable garden, shady paved garden dining area, whimsical pond, and flower gardens with winding paths – a garden for each season.
