Escape to the country with this inspiring rural estate set on 218 beautiful acres. Designed by London based, Australian born architect Alan Higgs, Coorparoo makes a powerful statement in style and sophistication. A contemporary pavilion design appears in a dramatic fashion and seems to float in its resting place high above the Yass River. Constructed of rammed earth the 300mm solid walls provide superb thermal mass while double glazed windows and a broad north facing orientation ensure wonderful solar passive qualities. Exquisite attention to detail is evident throughout with a heavy emphasis on indoor and outdoor entertaining across three living areas which spill out to a large central deck with reflection pool and covered verandah overlooking the park-like gardens and in-ground swimming pool.
