Located south of Sydney, Australia, the Jamberoo Farm Property was developed by Casey Brown Architecture for clients that wanted a country residence that was huge adequate to have private guest accommodations and large entertaining locations. The farmhouse was created to cohabitate with the, barns, sheds and cottages on the property – all centred about an ancient Morton bay fig tree. The property is comprised of 3 sections that are all connected by means of a breezeway and all have massive glass walls that overlook the views to the north of the surrounding landscape that contains views to the coast in the distance.
Aside from the expanses of glass the home is also constructed with nearby field stone, and Blackbutt wood. The wood is utilized as a conventional vertical board and batten siding left organic to slowly create a weathered and greyed patina. This all-natural tone to the wood is a excellent compliment to the grey and rust tones of the field stone walls. The main pavilion has a wrap around curved deck that makes it possible for the indoor space to open up by means of huge timber sliding doors for extended outdoor living when the climate permits.
The inside of the primary pavilion is huge and expansive. The Blackbutt wood continues on the floors, walls and ceilings and the showstopping scissor trusses are a significant style feature of the big cathedral ceiling. The scissor trusses let for a big and open strategy with minimal support structures generating a space that can accommodate big groups of folks. The living area has oversized couches with a collection of 3 huge pendants punctuating the space. Next to the lounging location a cost-free floating fireplace adds visual drama and beyond that is the kitchen and bar location.
The kitchen is in a central compartment in the main constructing with the island and bar on the side closest to the deck. It appears to be a Galley design and style with the vent for the stove hood piercing the central compartment and continuing up and through the roof. On closer inspection, only the cooking zone is visible from the bar, the prep and washing zones are located inside the Blackbutt wood cube, the cube is like a creating inside a developing and is unobtrusive in look, blending seamlessly with the flooring and rafters.
Behind the kitchen is a hallway lit with spotlights that travels to the dining location on the other side.
The indoor dining region has a door that leads to an outside dining location at the back of the main building. This outside dining location is entirely covered by the continued roofline and an large outdoor fireplace keeps the space warm at evening. The two smaller sized zones of the property are both for sleeping. The initial and middle 1 is the Master Suite total with a library on the view side that is accessible and divided by the breezeway that connects all 3 zones. The furthest section of the building at the far finish of the breezeway is the guest accommodations comprises of two bedrooms and two bathroom
The library on the other side of the Master Suite tends to make use of the higher gabled ceiling with row upon row of books that are accessible by means of a library ladder that slides back and forth along the wall.
The gardens of the home are wrapped about the ancient Morton bay fig tree that is a main feature of the home. The huge gnarled branches reach out and over the dense plantings even though stone curbings contain the bulging perennials. Nicely manicured lawns curve out and about the central planting an old piece of farm equipment peaks out as a memory of the way factors utilised to be.
On the view side of the property the massive pastures of grass continue whilst field stone retaining walls envelope the footprint of the living spaces. The setting is one particular of pure bliss and it is hard to envision anybody becoming capable to read a book in the library with no becoming distracted by the stunning all-natural setting just outdoors the door.
