A modern off-grid mountainside home at Krambach.
Recently completed off-grid home designed for modern comfort, on a 120 hectare property spanning native forests, grasslands, creek, and farm.
Nestled on the side of Krambach Mountain, with breathtaking views across the valley and towards the coast. With fully equipped kitchen, plunge pool, and good internet connection, the house accommodates eight in three bedrooms plus rumpus/study. Also a perfect base to explore nearby towns, beaches, and national parks. Pet friendly too.
The house has a comfortable minimalist design philosophy: clean lines and simple finishes, with featuring materials such as polished concrete floors, native hardwoods, and glass. Main living area and deck are spacious with vaulted ceilings. Bedrooms were designed to be comfortable yet compact, without en-suites, to reduce the home's carbon footprint. Great care was taken in mattress selection, to achieve a balance of comfort and support. The main bathroom features a generous, freestanding bath and rainwater-supplied shower, plus there is also a separate toilet. Rumpus/study is open plan and includes a queen bed which can be screened off, and is designed for multi-purpose use: work, reading, yoga, and more. Kitchen features Ilve cooker and oven, and full range of equipment. Fully equipped laundry. Furniture in the house is crafted mostly from native hardwoods which grow locally.
Dungannon is a few minutes drive to the village of Krambach. The 1.5km driveway from the public road to the house is initially gravel, and is bitumen-sealed as it climbs the mountain more steeply towards the house.
If you would like to have more than eight guests staying, you have the option of also hiring out the separate guest accommodation on the property, Stargazers' Shed. Located about 80 metres from the main house, Stargazers' Shed is a fitted-out shed which provides basic but comfortable guest accommodation for up to five people, including a single bedroom with queen bed, and a large open plan area with one queen bed and one single. Includes a lounge, flat-screen TV, kitchenette, wifi, and an open-air paved courtyard. Can be rented out as an additional option at modest rates, if interested please enquire with the hosts.
