THE setting of Mount Haven at Emu Park on the Capricorn Coast is quite simply unique.
This is currently a private oasis, hidden from the world and built to be hidden from land. The views are endless vistas across some 26 islands and wrapping around to the hinterland of rolling ranges of Mount Wheeler.
However, the 80 hectare (198 acre) parcel offered the owners a blank canvas to establish and complete a vision. Rising cliff faces, sandy beaches, a perfect north east aspect and crystal blue waters. Bitumen roadways cut through the contours, lined with interlocked block walls open to the softness of manicured lawns and the sounds of the ocean.
The two residences are both timeless and an inspiration to simplicity and elegance. From the rising sun to a moon shimmering across the ocean, both homes have been sited and designed to encapsulate the views from within to a private slice of nature.
Residence 1 has been perched on the lower plateau. The concrete rendered walls combine with framed feature windows which allow light to flow through the home. In simple terms, the air-conditioned home has two bathrooms, two bedrooms, two powder rooms, libraries, offices, living and relaxing areas and utility rooms. Enclosed patios allow pure air to circulate throughout the home. Garages to accommodate four cars segregate the privacy of the home from a two bedroom fully self-contained guest wing.
The second residence is situated on the highest point of the property, an air-conditioned three bedroom home that exudes simplicity and style. A fireplace splits the ever changing views from the living areas. An enclosed terrace overlooks not only the ocean but part of the landscaped gardens and lawns that extend in every direction. The large contemporary style kitchen is centred around an inviting polished concrete bench in the heart of the home, creating an entertaining hub with views across Keppel Bay.
Access is secure and understated. It hides a trail rising to the plateau. Mount Haven’s own water supply, together with town services, electricity and road ways combine with the natural geography of the land.
The owners have completed extensive planning for the current approvals. It is thought that this may be extended by future owners into a larger development given the unique aspect and landscape that Mount Haven offers.
