With its steeply pitched roof and twin bush poles that reach up to the upper floor balcony, the Brookfield Loft boasts a very imposing front elevation.
A slate-blue corrugated roof gives the home a unique, clean, but rustic appeal and the walls are a mixture of horizontal board painted a rich earth red, with corrugated Colorbond infills. The result is quite stunning.
Energy efficiency is another feature of The Brookfield Loft. The home has a true north orientation and window shading that has been designed to allow maximum penetration of winter sun while minimising the effects of the hot summer sun. Both the roof and external walls to the upper level have been insulated.
Adding to the energy efficiency is the Brookfield Loft’s reverse brick veneer construction. This gives the home the efficiency of mass brick, moderating internal temperature while eliminating heat build-up from the external walls.
A wide timber deck at the front of the home welcomes you to the double, fully glazed front door.
Step into the main open plan area of the home and you can’t help but be inspired. This large, free-form living space is dominated by a steel and timber-tread staircase and a high, raking ceiling.
To the left is the very chic island kitchen, impressively finished with roll-formed bench tops, stainless steel appliances and range hood. Windows to the outside make the kitchen an absolute treat to be in.
The rest of the room is open plan and can be set up and furnished in any way you desire. The timber floor features a unique ‘north point’ contrasting inlay which makes an interesting conversation piece. Boldly painted walls, a wood fired heater and the voluminous void adds to the overall effect.
Above is the studio loft which features double doors that open onto the balcony. Once again, this area can be used for a variety of purposes. The choice is yours.
The master suite is roomy with a big, walk-in robe and well-appointed ensuite. There’s a special room where the kids can be kids, and a double-size guestroom ideally located alongside the biggest second bathroom you’ve ever seen.
The Brookfield Loft can also be built in framed construction, on stumps or poles, or in conventional double clay brick. Its shape allows it to run with the contours of a hill, minimising site costs and maximising any potential views.
