NATURAL products, plenty of glass and a design to capture water views stand out in a newly-built Wirlinga home that measures more than 90 squares.

Located on 102.6 hectares of Lake Hume frontage, the Knoble Road property features ample use of Victorian ash timber, stone piers and terracotta roof tiles.

CUSTOM DESIGN: Measuring 91.2 squares, the five-bedroom home sits on a waterside block of 102.6 hectares. Rendered brickwork and double glazing are features.

Davis Sanders Homes began building the house in December 2014, with construction taking about 14 months.

Managing director Murray Pigdon said the design aimed for a resort-style appeal and focused on the house’s outlook and elevated position.

OPEN PLAN: Extensive use of dolomite tiles can be seen throughout the house's interior. The main living areas do not include televisions as a way of enhancing family time.

“We didn't want it to look like we just cut a hole in the hill,” he said.

“As a home we wanted it to roll down with the contour of the hill.”

The driveway leads to to a floor to ceiling, wall to wall glass foyer and entrance door. Twenty solid rock piers of 3.5 metres surround the home while dolomite tiles are used throughout the interior, alfresco and swimming pool area.

There are five bedrooms, with the main wing including a private sitting room, en suite, walk-in wardrobe and outdoor freestanding stone bath.

The children’s area has four bedrooms, each with a walk-in wardrobe and desk. A television and games area, laundry, main bathroom with bath, two showers and powder rooms are nearby.

Mr Pigdon said transporting materials to the site proved challenging, but the weather favoured the project.

“We were fortunate to get all the slabs poured, the frames up and the roof covered before we had any wet season,” he said.
