"Giles Creek Residence" Residence

The current "Giles Creek" residence was built in 1993 on the home site of an original residence which had been destroyed by a house fire sometime earlier.

The owner at the time commissioned Mr. Rick Lindsay to build the residence of rammed earth construction with a traditional iron roof. The residence was planned and designed around an Australian Station Homestead theme with the correct balance of all that contemporary living has to offer while maintaining the gracious appeal so often seen in Station Homesteads. Emphasis was placed in design on wide verandahs and access to the fully established lawns and gardens set amongst mature trees both native and European. To add to the pleasant decor and to retain the attachment to yester-year, the bricks from the original home were used on the verandahs and the construction of the open fire place chimney. Redgum and rough Hewn timbers were used in construction of the wide verandahs.

A huge Peppermint polished gum post harvested from the property is a feature and central to the open plan living area. 

"Giles Creek" residence offers four (4) spacious bedrooms with walk-in-robe and ensuite facility to main bedroom. All bedrooms have large picture windows to gardens and surrounds. A large home office/study opening to the verandah area is well appointed and would readily convert to a fifth bedroom if required. A well-appointed bathroom services three (3) bedrooms.

The open plan informal living area incorporates a modern timber kitchen with quality appliances and vintage bench-tops (Walwa Store) plus a meals/living area. This whole area has cathedral ceilings and timber features. The kitchen is serviced by a large "walk in" pantry. The open plan area is accessed directly to the verandah/decked area via French doors. A slow combustion wood heater services the living areas. Adjacent to the open plan living area is a large formal lounge/dining area with a feature brick open fire place and picture windows to the surrounds. A double carport under roof compliments this high quality residence.

 

"Giles Creek Residence" Gardens and Surrounds

The spacious gardens and surrounds have been planned on a low maintenance basis but retain the beauty and structure of a higher rainfall.

An avenue of mature ornamental pear trees from the entrance to the residence sets the theme with many mature European type trees, garden beds of agapanthus, camellias, vines and established shrubs. Spacious lawn areas connect each section of the surrounds. A well maintained tennis court, an ornamental lake and full underground watering system blend with and compliment the whole garden area. A quiet, peaceful retreat to satisfy the most discerning.

 

"Giles Creek Residence" Accommodation

Sited some distance (300 metres) from the main residence and nestled on the timbered banks of the permanent Giles Creek, are two (2) A framed cottages. Ideal for extra holiday accommodation or conversion to quiet peaceful offices.

Currently used as extra accommodation, the main cottage is of one room incorporating kitchen/lounge area plus mezzanine bedroom. A wood heater services this small apartment. The adjacent cottage is currently used as a bathroom/laundry area and incorporates a toilet.
