Birches

Traditional Country style at its finest abounds in the delightful “Birches” home located in rural Victoria. Designed to accommodate a young farming family, this home was also based extensively on authentic Feng Shui principles and guidelines. Although the design process was lengthy and complex, the home was subsequently named South East Victoria Custom Built Home of the Year (2009) – a huge achievement for the owners, the design team and our builder.

The clear vision of the owners included an intricate roof line with a steep 45 degree pitch, dormers and gables, and custom made finials and fenestrations. Colonial style windows provide a traditional country feature, and the balcony leading from the master bedroom provides an area to soak up the views over the surrounding countryside.

Internally, the home is a unique blend of country charm and the elegance and style of modern luxury. Quality fittings, fixtures and finishes are to be found throughout the home, with solid timber parquetry flooring, timber dado walls, and a stone open fire place just a few of the beautiful features selected by the owners. The bespoke country style kitchen is both elegant and functional, and duel living areas result in a highly functional family home.

I can't express enough, the gratitude we feel towards Doug and his team for making this experience a joyous one, and bringing our dream home into reality
