Builder lists Avalon's Angophora House by Richard Leplastrier

Angophora House, a newly completed Avalon house designed by Richard Leplastrier, has been listed by Andew Campbell, the builder who has worked on a number of Leplastrier's designs.

Its being marketed by the agency, Modern House Estate Agents, as "a piece of fine cabinetry for humans."

They suggest the location of 33 Bellevue Avenue is equally beguiling being sited on the tip of the extended grove of Angophoras.

The recently completed house has six pavilions on an 808-square-metre site with good vantage lookouts towards Bangally Headland. No price guide has been yet given on the house set at Avalon, the northern beachside suburb of Sydney located 35 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD.

The four bedroom, two bathroom house with 139 square metres of internal space has been worked on full-time for three years and three months until completion in February 2013. The design stems back to 2003.

Some six months was spent in the ground with the help of master builder John Simpson with the timber, being recycled Jarrah coming from the Freemantle Wool Store, comprising some nine carriage loads delivered by Andrew Brodie of Australian Architectural Hardwoods, Kempsey.
