Tucks Ridge House

Exhilarating and sculptural, this new ecofriendly three bedroom two bathroom single-level residence, by Mornington Peninsula architect Adrian Bonomi, offers a peaceful retreat. The design pays homage to Australian rural architectural history in a pure contemporary form.

Resting quietly on 7.2 acres (approx.), the cutting-edge residence appears almost tent like with its rolling galvanized steel roofline mirroring the undulating hills and forest canopy whilst retaining connection to the earth. With a strong balance between artistic sensibilities and function, the central tenet of the design was to create a home that works seamlessly with its environment and the demands of the Australian climate. The living spaces in their beauty connect to and enhance the daily joy of living on the land.

Decks weaved into the building's form create outdoor spaces sheltered from the wind or sun for enjoyment throughout the four seasons; while the purity of the internal spaces enhance the serenity and quietness. Weathered iron walls feature both externally and internally and dramatically backdrop the principal living and dining domain that is open to both the northern aspect and southern panoramic rural views. Each aspect has triple sliding doors linking to the surrounding decks. A fireside lounge area complements a dining zone and beautiful kitchen with Falcon stove and integrated Miele dishwasher.

The sleeping accommodation offers three serene bedrooms, the main with superb views across olive groves, deck access and an exquisite ensuite with clawfoot bath, bespoke handmade ceramic basin and extra large shower. The second bedroom provides access to a gorgeous loft yoga and meditation room; while the third bedroom features deck access and integrated bookshelves. A superb main bathroom is next to the mud room and there’s even an outdoor bath where you can let nature wash over you.

With an emphasis on sustainability, the 6 star energy rated home features double glazed windows with fly screens, 28 solar panels with 7.5kw continuous inverted power and 6kw grid inverter, 81,500 litre water storage, full insulation and Puretec water filtration. Comprehensive appointments include ducted vacuum, Eureka wood fire heater with thermostatically controlled heat transfer exchange system, Big Ass Haiku fans and excellent storage.

An indigenous flora restoration project conducted by Wetland Wildlife Creations further honours the land that features a landscaped fire-pit entertaining area, fully fenced domestic zone and rural boundary zone, 9x7 metre work shed and 6x7 metre machinery shed/carport and remote control gates.

“Tuck Ridge House” is made even more memorable by its quiet country setting close to Red Hill Village, Shoreham beach, award-winning wineries, restaurants, farm gates and within close proximity to all the major golf courses on the peninsula.
