This is the house.

The house you pass by admiring the facade, envious of its position on a tree-lined street. One keenly watched as it has taken shape, capturing the interest of a suburb. This is the house that is one of a kind, bespoke in design and aesthetic, whilst progressive in form and function.

An architect-designed two-storey passive house with flowing interiors and open-plan, flexible living spaces.

It is iconic. It is a house of influence.
It is the oak tree house.
