Positioned on one of the best stands in Waterfall Country Estate, the design of this single storey house sought to accentuate a strong connection to the characteristics of the immediate environment.

Sitting atop a rocky triangular shaped site with superb views over a natural valley, dams and bridges, this unique and visually striking property compliments and enhances its surroundings without imposing on it, comments architect Luc Zeghers.

In plan, the three wings are squeezed up in the triangle optimising the views from the living areas and two of the bedrooms. In every aspect, the form of the house is designed to take advantage of the spectacular views and North facing orientation, states Zeghers.

The covered patio is cantilevered out over the rock outcrop which was left intact and forms an essential part of the character of the property. This feature makes the house look like it is floating from the front elevation and adds to its unique look. When Chalkline was given the opportunity to build this house, we knew it would be a challenging build and something of a showpiece for the Estate, we are truly proud of the end result, states Sean Pettit of Chalkline Construction.

Besides being one of three support points for the concrete slab over the patio, the natural stone cladded chimney is positioned to block out the afternoon west sun, thus making for a more comfortable living experience.

A first floor viewing patio with external staircase sits above the patio and acts as the ideal sundowner deck. We often sit up on the first floor deck and observe the abundant variety of birdlife enjoying our wonderful indigenous garden and natural dam, says Rob and Concelia Emett proudly.

The rimflow pool is strategically positioned to act as a retaining wall on the steep site, with all landscaped areas shaped to the natural flow of the site towards the attenuation dams and the natural valley beyond. We had a very specific brief from the client, as they wanted the house to compliment the site without affecting its natural characteristics, we feel the end product does justice to this request, concludes Zeghers.

The house has the most amazing feeling of space due to the double volume ceilings and the large expanses of glazing in the living room. Another feature is that a lot of the doors open into cavity walls, concealing the doors and adding to the greater feeling of space and openness.

This newly completed house in Waterfall is a fine example of how the correct use of natural materials is able to complement its environment and still provide opulent living.
