THE HODDLE – A MULTI AWARD WINNING GIPPSLAND RETREAT
Lifestyle - FOSTER VIC
Positioned on a 2.12 acre site with captivating views across Corner Inlet to Wilsons Promontory, award winning The Hoddle by Edition Office reimagines country living. An impressive architectural presence on a South Gippsland ridgeline, this exceptional home has been designed as an intimate country retreat. The house is protected from the elements by a recycled brick western wall punctuated by breezeways and a black steel door, through which the visitor enters. Once inside the breathtaking view is revealed through the extensive glazing.
Linked by a central corridor, the home’s three pavilions separated by a series of courtyards, are skewed to allow the northern light to penetrate the interior. A large open plan living and dining area seamlessly unfolds to extensive sheltered decking. The main bedroom, luxurious ensuite and two additional bedrooms boast full width windows capturing the changing views. The study provides an additional living area and guest accommodation. A second bathroom and laundry adjoin a drying courtyard while an internally accessed double garage provides additional accommodation via a concealed wall of bunk beds.
Other highlights include a generous separate kitchen with a timber-lined doorway and servery providing connection and views through the living spaces. Caesarstone benchtops, a black Esse wood-fired stove, an induction cooktop, integrated wide dishdrawer and fridge all dwell in a warm timber and white tiled space.
Double glazed windows and doors, extensive built in storage, warm timber-lined walls and burnished concrete floors are features of this finely detailed house. Thermal comfort is ensured by the home’s passive design boosted by slab heating. An onsite worm farm waste treatment system, 65,000L rainwater storage, low VOC materials and a 5kw solar PV system contribute to the home’s sustainability and energy efficiency credentials.
Outside, the low maintenance, parklike surrounds lead to a small dam surrounded by daffodils in season. An adjoining woodlot supplies firewood, and an orchard, wood and poultry sheds plus vegetable garden enhance a self-sufficient lifestyle.
Located approximately 180km from Melbourne, The Hoddle is just 7kms from Fish Creek, one of South Gippsland’s jewels. Walk, run or cycle the 87km Great Southern Rail Trail, explore local breweries and winery cellar doors and discover the iconic Wilsons Promontory less than an hour away.
