On a windswept plain of rugged beauty
sits a quietly confident house of rammed earth,
built to embrace & celebrate the wildness of the stunning landscape.
On approach, the house presents a wall of locally made rammed earth.
But on the other 3 elevations,
window walls allow the eye & imagination to wander
to the far horizon...
Cunana is a property at Merricks,
tucked into the heart of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
Nearby Merricks General Store is an absolute favourite with locals,
where their poached eggs & freshly harvested field mushrooms
make a rather splendid Sunday breakfast.
A sheltered courtyard sits in the middle of the house,
as a suntrap in winter,
and a refreshing space out of the wind in summer.
Then of course,
you could always play croquet on the lawn,
which also has its own shelter,
this time of sculptural plantings.
The scullery doesn't miss out on the view,
with a slot window instead of a splashback over the sink.
The house sits on a 27 acre property.
The home was designed by SJB Architects & Interiors
and completed only a few years ago.
