Being in Nature
Reminiscent of renowned architect Alistair Knox who advocated for "living in the environment", Mat Boyle and Anna Winneke of Pumphouse Design built this sustainably designed home in 2005 with a strong emphasis on natural materials, finishes and reclaimed resources.

Disciples (or students) of the Knox building school, Boyle and Winneke embraced the fundamentals with an outcome resulting in this stunning mudbrick, steel and recycled timber home. With a soaring vaulted ceiling, picture windows connecting to nature, and reclaimed beams dominating the design, the split-level floorplan consists of an expansive open plan living with wood burning heater, dining and kitchen. With views of the landscape, the kitchen features a generous bespoke curved timber bench with storage, a walk-in pantry and a 900mm gas cooktop with an electric oven. The main level provides a study, a bedroom with double doors outside, a bathroom with a clawfoot bath, a separate toilet and a laundry. The mezzanine-level houses a library with picture windows overlooking the surrounding landscape and the main bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, an ensuite with a generous stainless-steel shower, a walk-in robe and French doors to an east-facing deck. Additional details include a cellar, timber and decorative brick flooring, ceiling fans, reverse cycle heating and cooling, town water and 1kw solar panels.

On approx. 3.48 acres, the house sits privately within its bush setting and terraced landscape and features a brick-paved entertaining area with a bespoke pizza oven. External details include a studio with a wood-burning heater and mezzanine, a rear shed/ workshop, a carport and an additional shed.

In a highly sought-after location, this property is within walking distance of the renowned Castlemaine Botanical Gardens, the vibrant Mill Complex and a short drive into Castlemaine. As a home of the environment, with a connection to nature, sustainable bespoke design, and reclaimed resources, this is a pure and raw homage to the school of Knox.
