Bedfordale House. A landmark architectural masterpiece of substance and distinction, transcending time, form and function.
This is the story of two people with a dream, a vision; the story of a spectacular residence crafted with love and passion, bursting with vibrancy and charisma. An extraordinary home, with extraordinary views, and an extraordinary life beyond compare.
Their dream, brought to life in a solar passive home with sustainable features, inspired by their love of Japanese architecture. An iconic, world class, multi award winning masterpiece epitomizing sublime harmony, perfect scale and refinement and the culmination of creative and design ingenuity from architect Suzanne Hunt and specialist builder Gransden Construction.
The most important considerations for the owners were to build an easy to live in, peaceful and spacious home that embodied the fundamentals of Japanese design principles. A home perfectly integrated within its landscape, with fluid, seamless connections between the house and its immediate surroundings and valley views from almost every window, now unobtrusively gracing the gently undulating terrain of the Perth Hills - an elegant, timeless, tranquil sanctuary set deep within 20 hectares of magnificently landscaped grounds.
Carved into the hillside, three single level stone and timber pavilions, topped with Canadian slate are anchored by a spine: a vast, curvilinear rammed earth wall extending through the home and encircling the heavenly Contemplation Garden. This magnificent home is a masterful synergy of contemporary spaces, with beautiful light infused interiors, timeless materials and a true connection to the outdoors offering breathtaking panoramic views across the valley. Exceptional design is complemented by beautifully considered, consistent finishes within skilfully crafted, bespoke interiors, creating an exquisitely soothing palette of natural materials comprising grey basalt and rammed earth walls, Bacagli dark travertine to floors, Victorian Ash ceilings and timber batten walls, Walnut veneer panelling and environmentally certified Burmese Teak for window and door frames.
Within the main pavilions, a sublime harmony of perfectly integrated areas bring family together, yet provide distinct spaces for study, sleep and solitude. Open plan family spaces are gloriously expansive, yet clearly defined by function. Floor to ceiling glass with frameless corner windows present the all-encompassing landscape as artwork to absorb, embrace, imbibe…
The fourth pavilion is a completely self-contained two-bedroom guest house, with expansive living/dining/ kitchen overlooking the valley. The final pavilion contains a 20m heated lap pool with a galaxy of shimmering, twinkling stars in the ceiling. Outside, pavilions are connected by Koi ponds, timber decking and stone paths through sculpted Japanese influenced gardens.
