Holly Tree Farm

From the ashes, a new vision

A warm and inviting 3 bedroom home with a framed view from every room. The original farmhouse on this rural Huon Valley site was tragically destroyed by fire.

In our client’s words

It was clear that Skookom had a real commitment to the work – Ian and Elise say they invest their reputation in their projects, so the building is as much theirs as ours.

The owners’ brief was for a warm and inviting home that sits comfortably with the land and makes the most of its scenic position overlooking the Huon River.

In response, Cykel Architects designed a wonderfully unique home in the ‘modern farmhouse’ style, featuring natural timber finishes and framed views from every room.

Considering the bespoke nature of the build, the budget was conservative – we needed to find clever solutions to deliver the design intent.

Members of our extended family live all around Australia – we like to bring them together for family holidays in our special corner of Tasmania. The house needs to be a good place to relax and unwind, with lots of peace and quiet.
