The site, a long sliver in shape, is just over 2 hectares. Established bushland in the centre of the property separates the two buildings. The property is not serviced by town water or sewerage.

An onsite waste water treatment system looks after both buildings and rainwater is harvested. The house sits high on the site and is linear in plan to follow the natural contour. The house plan is spacious yet compact.

No space is wasted. Orientated to the north, large eaves and a fly-over roof shade the building. Cross ventilation, natural daylighting and beautiful views to Cooroy Mountain are maximised.
