Moruya Knockdown Rebuild

This generous, contemporary rural home enjoys the idyllic setting on an acreage on the Moruya River. The knockdown rebuild project is a beautiful example of a tree-change design brought to life by Green Homes South-East NSW. It includes the main dwelling, a self-contained flat with separate carport and entry, as well as a private guest suite on the lower level.

The footprint was dictated by the original split-level dwelling, from which the footings were retained and reused. However, the contemporary home constructed on these footings bears little resemblance to the dated brown brick original and strives to do justice to the acreage surrounds with rural views to the mountains on the horizon.

What remained of the original brick plinth has been rendered to a dark grey, and the main structure clad in a light-coloured Colorbond, which was chosen for its durability and contemporary, rural aesthetic. A striking, gabled entry hall with cathedral ceiling welcomes visitors and doubles as a stylish living and entertaining space. It functions as a practical transition zone, a fusion of indoor and outdoor living, in addition to connecting the garage and self-contained flat with the main dwelling.

In the main wing, a plentiful kitchen and living spaces spill on to the hardwood veranda, taking advantage of the rural setting. The original subfloor storage area has been transformed into a full guest suite with privacy and rural tree-change vibe.
