FOSSIL Cove House was designed by the award-winning Preston Lane Architects team for a family member.

This four-bedroom home was featured in Australia’s leading residential architecture magazine Houses in 2004 and The Architectural Review in 2008.

A striking Corten motorised steel gate greets the owner at the edge of the property.

An extensive driveway and turning circle lead to the main house, where a timber boardwalk guides through a stunning native garden to the home’s entry.

Contrasting textures, natural timber, red steel and cool stone and glass set a tone for this hallmark property.

Looking for privacy?

The bedrooms are housed over two split levels, allowing for separation and privacy.

Both the ensuite and main bathroom are generous, bright and beautiful with walk-in showers, a deep bath and quality fittings.

In the galley-style kitchen — positioned at the centre of the north-facing living spaces — there are European appliances, gas cooking and a blend of function and beauty.

The living and dining zones are open and light-filled with bush and water views.

Wool carpet and a wood fire in the lounge area create a warm place to retreat to at the end of the day.

From the dining area, floor-to-ceiling glass folding doors allow a seamless transition to a sundeck and the sumptuous Miami spa.

Extensive boardwalks and pathways take guests on a journey throughout the property, effortlessly transporting them from the main house to the entertainment pavilion.

How’s the serenity?

Here, set well away from the house and nestled among the treetops, this fabulous extension offers a self-contained kitchen, a barbecue and pizza oven and an enormous deck for alfresco dining.

With its solar-passive design, this magnificent energy-efficient home is certainly well-equipped for the ever-changing Tasmanian climate.

Shadow solar film on the windows helps cut down on UV, and insulates the home all year around.

Underfloor insulation and ducted heating also help ensure a comfortable environment.

There are 28 solar panels that provide 9kW of power.

Three tanks provide 50,000 litres of water.
