The Paddock is located on semi-rural acreage in the Noosa hinterland, with views north to Mount Tinbeerwah. The owners were inspired by an early 1970s Guildford Bell designed house on a family farm near Eidsvold with ironbark cladding and a mid-century style.

Care was taken to value the natural features of the block and blend into the rising contour of the landscape while providing a simple, timeless family home that brings the outdoors in and allows for relaxed entertaining.

The Paddock is off-grid using solar power, a lithium battery storage system, waste water treatment system and water tanks. Thermally passive design has been achieved through positioning, cross ventilation and a concrete slab creating a cool retreat in summer and a warm, sheltered haven in winter.

The practicality of the daily spaces a young family uses, combined with how the house encourages you to look outside and appreciate the wonderful surroundings, makes living at The Paddock a constant joy. Visitors to The Paddock often comment on the immediate sense of calm and escape they feel when they arrive.
