AMC Spec Home 5

This our fifth AMC spec home, and with its gorgeous modern farmhouse styling, we think it’s the best one yet. Once construction is complete, we’ll have it on display for potential customers to look through, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Even more importantly, it’s going to be the ‘forever home’ for one of our most favourite people in the world: Susie’s Mum. So this is a project that’s very close to our hearts.

While the block is only 600 square metres, we’re creating the type of home that might be more commonly seen on acreage; a rustic, barn-style retreat with raked ceilings, a loft above the kitchen (with views out over Strathalbyn) and a clever U-shaped floorplan that wraps around a sheltered outdoor courtyard. The kitchen will include a large bifold window opening onto a servery situated in this courtyard.

Perhaps the most ambitious aspect of this project is a two-sided feature wall constructed from reclaimed bricks. At seven metres high and nearly two metres wide, the wall will extend from the ground to the roofline, anchoring the home to the landscape, and bringing warmth and character to the interiors.

We’re working hard to complete this very special home – check our Facebook page for progress updates.
