Traditional Japanese Sukiya’ farmhouse’ built in 1987 was the dream home and lifetime project of the Rive family. A family home based on traditional Japanese styling, meets 21st century lifestyles and authenticity both inside and out. The house was designed by architect Robert Railley and took over two years to build featuring two levels of glass, natural timbers and zen garden features.
According to Raywhite ‘the home is designed based on the principle of shakkei (‘borrowed scenery’), the home capitalises on its natural surroundings and landscape to enhance the living experience from within. An alluring nature-style pool with Japanese-style landscaping provides tranquil spaces to relax and live in your zen paradise.’
Traditionally Sukiya refers to 16th century style Japanese farmhouses which are very refined in design and made with natural materials mainly wood.
Situated on a 1012sqm site, this 4 bedroom home of 378sqm with a c.v of 3.75million went to auction with RayWhite in early June, after huge attendance to it’s open homes.
