Been looking in Nimbin? ... And now for something really special!

It's the house in a million - the absolute show stopper, which passers-by fall for time and again when they visit Nimbin's permaculture haven of Jarlanbah. Constructed of glass, stone, mud brick and timber, The Wave House, as it is known locally is set beautifully within a sublime subtropical half-acre landscape. Originally designed by Melbourne architect, Chris Barnett for local doctors, it offers a private north-east aspect. In the living area, deep windows and doors dressed in cedar frame a long view across the canopy to the ancient World Heritage-listed rain forest of Nightcap National Park. One of three decks which all form an integral part of the indoor/outdoor living space, it also takes in this vista, as well as commanding an elevated position from which to view the garden. Anchored by swales to direct water slowly through the landscape, and berms topped with mature fruit trees, selected screenings and Australian bush tucker flora; anyone from a permaculture background will adore the curves and repeat patterns peppered throughout both gardens and built structures alike. At its heart, this is a beautiful house with serious sustainability credentials - pier construction, warm teak timber flooring, an efficient 4.76 kw solar system with micro inverters making it ideal for off-grid if required, 2 concrete water tanks totalling 50,000 litres, and ceiling fans. Cleverly-placed banks of louvred glass provide the perfect cross-flow ventilation as do the sliding stacker doors, which provide access to the large rear covered deck. Configured to roll back from each other, this feature extends the open/plan kitchen and dining space when required for entertaining. Above the kitchen is a loft-space which could be used as a third bedroom. In addition there are two large bedrooms with a study nook between and one large bathroom with an additional outdoor shower. Storage has not been forgotten with built-in storage in the main bedroom, a walk-in pantry, laundry, a double carport, another covered car space attached to the home, mower shed and an under-house workshop space. There is air conditioning, mains power, solar and gas, and NBN makes it an ideal contender for anyone who wants to work from home in the most tranquil setting.
