Mountain Home: South Hobart

Winner, 2020 HIA Awards

Custom Built Home $750,000-$1 million

A long time in the planning and development stage, this house had been three years in the system. At initial meetings with the client it was evident they had a clear vision in regard to the outcome of their house. Having spent many years living in a 40 sq m unit, the clients were very excited about this being their ‘forever house’.

MGAI and the architectural design team for this project created a masterpiece which needed a craftsman to be able to procure this product. The quirkiness in the window design and the attention to detail needed to construct this project is a credit to Merlin’s ‘meticulous detail’ and the sub-trade team that worked on this from early stages to completion of their mountain home.

We at Merlin are extremely proud of this high-standard home, delivering eye-catching impact as you drive down Huon Road from Kunanyi/Mount Wellington. The use of large sections of glass in the living areas invite the outside in and the use of natural timber flooring provides an authentic, warm feel.
