Calmness and serenity at the award-winning 'Trial Bay House' Privately situated on 42 acres, 'Trial Bay House' was the winner of the prestigious 2010 Australian Institute of Architects Robin Boyd Award for best residential house in Australia. The jury panel described the home as having 'such calmness and serenity that it is hard to leave'.

Originally designed by architect Ray Heffernan forty years ago, the second and current owners of the home undertook extensive renovations with architect James Jones. Retaining the original external lines and timber ceilings, the house was given a new tranquillity, seamlessly blending a raw concrete addition with the original home. The result is an abundance of natural light, cross flow, and strong interior/exterior connection. The thoughtful and fluid design allows the home to have two wings. In the main wing are the living and dining areas, kitchen, and principal bedroom. Here you'll also find The Channel Room designed to give a sense of standing within a camera lens surrounded by an unmatched view of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island. An enclosed veranda creates a wide corridor overlooking a pebbled courtyard and provides access to the secondary wing where two additional bedrooms, laundry and garage are located. This beautiful home is complimented by a fully self-contained guest house with private balcony; multiple storage sheds and stable; a 10-kw solar array with a Tesla battery, and luscious greenery which includes a huge vegetable garden. This home is the epitome of beautiful design and restraint in a privileged location.
