A DARBY Munro designed home on Watsons Road at Mount Tarampa sits on the cusp of the rise allowing views not just across the property but the farmlands and ranges in all directions.
The unconventional country home on 47 hectares (117 acres) is an irregular asymmetrical style facade with large windows allowing full use of the Lockyer Valley's natural light. It has a flexible layout and is as suited to family life as to couple living.
Munro designed the home to blend naturally into the position and use shutters and awning windows to allow the home to warm and cool naturally. There are air conditioners and fans and a two-way fireplace. The oregon and pine timbers are offset by the double brickwork.
