Set on 5082 m2 / 1.24 acres delivering a serene, idyllic setting, which belies its position just minutes from the centre of Eltham, 19 Eucalyptus Road, is the epitome of Knox's philosophy.
Engineer Roy Johnson (responsible for the Myer Music Bowl) commissioned Knox to build what was at the time Knox's most expensive project. After a lengthy design process Knox and Johnson headed to the Toolangi State forest where they secured Messmate trees to form the foundation of this magnificent mud brick home.
Artfully blending them with mud bricks made on site, reclaimed red brick floors, ceilings lined with timbers salvaged from a basketball court and beams rescued from Melbourne docks, Knox has created a home that's energy efficient, ecologically sound and superbly functional.
An enormous living area featuring two open fire places, a St George equipped solid timber kitchen and four bedrooms sharing two family bathrooms deliver exemplary living and accommodation spaces, all enjoying a seamless transition and complete synergy with wide veranda's and vast alfresco options.
With gas hydronic heating, undercover parking for multiple vehicles at the end of the made driveway, ponds, dam, and visiting bird and wildlife, it's a sought after sanctuary where you can't wait to get home!
Expressions of interest closing 19th April at 5pm (unless sold prior.)
“There is no better method of designing a building than using big posts of one sort or another. In many ways they have become the heart of our environmental construction over the years.” Alistair Knox
