Architect Designed and Owned Hillcrest
43 Stapylton Street, WINMALEE
Hillcrest has been designed and owner-built by renowned architect Robert Mann. The home is a labour of love, and will be your next love.
Through the clever repurposing of reclaimed architectural building materials, this beautiful ‘industrial style’ home and office embodies a unique warmth and charm. There are many talking pieces in the home from the salvaged 36,000 dry-pressed bricks and railway sleepers, to the feature timber walls and barn style doors. This beauty would be right at home on the cover of a quality architect mag.
The layout has been designed to capture breathtaking sweeping views of the Blue Mountains National Park. These can be seen from the main living areas which are the perfect place to unwind after a busy day. Did someone say entertaining? The kitchen has a massive 4.8m x 1.2m island bench built with travertine and timber, connecting to an outdoor courtyard, garden, and yes, those views.
Hillcrest has a lower ground floor which could be a separate living space for multi-generational families or home offices for a business owner. (It was originally home to the owners’ parents for 3 years.) This space has its own entrance and was used as a thriving airbnb in 2020/2021 prior to lockdown. In addition to 2 large bedrooms, living room, kitchenette, and bathroom with private rock garden, this level also features a wine cellar, and rumpus room.
The walls are extensively insulated recycled brick and windows double glazed to provide fantastic thermal performance, and reduce the need for heating and cooling. The owners have been purposeful in their approach and delivery in using the recycled and or sustainable building materials throughout. Timber and travertine flooring feature throughout, and ceiling panels by Versicad offer increased insulation and never need painting. The storage in this home is almost as impressive as the design.
