1A Queensberry Street, Daylesford

Winter chalet, summer cool

Nestled high on Wombat Hill at the edge of the botanic gardens, this architect designed property overlooks Daylesford and beyond. Intended to be used as either a dwelling or short-term boutique accommodation, the home balances an old-world aesthetic with a cool contemporary feel, inspired by the warm, textured timber chalets of alpine Europe.

Built as two separate, energy efficient, timber-clad forms, the home has an open, flexible floorplan comprising 3 bedrooms, master with ensuite and BIRs, a contemporary kitchen with a large Smeg cooker, Miele dishwasher, concrete bench tops and a cleverly integrated European laundry. The dining and adjoining living areas overlook a peaceful shaded garden and deck and the locally sourced timber floors, walls and ceiling linings add texture and create a sense of drama and volume. All of the double glazed windows frame very specific views of the garden, ensuring a strong connection to the outdoors but also a feeling of seclusion and sanctuary, with the external landscape working around the magnificent giant Douglas Fir and Himalayan spruce trees.

Shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards 2017, this home offers a bold contrast to its surrounding neighbours and yet with its gabled roofs, textured finishes and traditional feel is entirely appropriate for its regional setting and has been described as 'a contemporary version of the historic miner's cottage'.
