Speargrass 1

This home was designed by architect John Blair of Blair + Co, Arrowtown.

The home's dark-grey corrugated steel roof and cladding of schist stone and dark-stained cedar reflect the architectural style and material palette of the region. French-style steel pergolas outside the master bedroom and living area enhance outdoor spaces created for relaxing and entertaining.

Double glazing and aluminium joinery provide maximum insulation with minimal maintenance.
The flow of the interior spaces in the 330m2 house was carefully planned, with multiple living zones that are designed to work well whether the residents are a couple or a family.
The hub of the home is the open-plan kitchen and the spacious informal living room, from which bifold doors lead onto a large north-facing terrace.
Neutral walls throughout the house help create a sense of volume and light, while accents of colour anchor the spaces, adding a more intimate feel.
A separate formal lounge and dining room on the other side of the kitchen features a large schist fireplace and a selection of comfortable furniture.
The master suite and a separate wing containing the guests bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry and study, open off the central living hub.
Each wing is designed as an independent space that can be closed off to ensure warmth and privacy if required. Additional bedrooms can be added if needed.
Underfloor heating can be activated remotely, while a multi-room sound system delivers music throughout the home, even in the bathroom.
