Best retirement housing design for Global Awards shortlisted

LONDON: The shortlist for the best retirement housing design has been declared.

Over 250 designs have been considered by the awards secretariat. One of the finalists in this category is shown above.

An off-grid Mitchell Shire house set in a landscape of monolithic granite boulders and rolling hills is offering an escape so secluded it could be in a whole other world.

Set on 49.66ha and designed by the Marcus Roberts Architect studio, the three-bedroom home is for sale with a $2.1m-$2.3m price guide.

At 115 Zig Zag Rd, Nulla Vale, it’s about a 15-minute drive from Lancefield and Cobaw State Forest, 45 minutes to Kyneton and 70 minutes to Melbourne’s CBD.

The Global Award winner will be announced in November in London. (Globals)
