Everything you need, nothing you don't

The wabi sabi vision of designer and sculptor, Paul Begg was never meant to be sold. It has been his experiment in good living for more than 20 years.

His initial requirement was a north facing backyard. That much he could work with, anything less and you simply live without the luxury of the sun. With the fundamentals in place he has been on a quest to transform the once very ordinary bungalow into a grand design of thought, hardwood, timber, concrete and glass.

The house sits less than a hundred meters from the Conservation Hut, trail head of some of the best walks in the country. The location is prime.

The house opens up towards the passive solar rewards of the north. From the street you'd never expect the huge gallery like volume that's attached to the humble cottage. Custom steel windows and doors connect you to the outdoors. Extensive landscaping with recycled brick presents a level 3 zoned garden. It's main intent to provide food with mature Apple, lemon, quince, olive and Fig trees. 3 bricked garden beds keep the house in abundant supply of vegetables and herbs.

A Wollami Pine loving its shaded position flanks the driveway with a pink rhododendron, mature Dogwoods, maples and cabbage palms. The huge master bedroom with its massive sliding window is a joyous place to sleep, and wake. The architecture is exciting and inspiring and delivers a uplifting living experience seldom found in residential design.

This home represents a unique opportunity to engage with the Blue Mountains with its two separate and stunning living arrangements it delivers significant return and lifestyle. The front of the house easily presents with the closing of a door, as a separate two bedroom self contained cottage with large living area, separate kitchen and bathroom. The house is a star performer on Airbnb. There's also a small workshop with three phase power that would ideally suite all manner of creative pursuits.
The house does need some finishing touches but unfortunately the maker needs to step aside.

The house is a lifework in process - presents a one-of-a-kind offering that will leave all inspired.
