There seems to be a growing contempt for modern architecture, as demonstrated by social media’s reception to Kanye West’s $79 million purchase of the Malibu compound designed by Tadao Ando this past week. But when executed correctly like The Elemental House located at 1150 Dooralong Road – or, indeed, Kanye’s new bachelor pad – the results are astounding. So much so that this contemporary NSW farmhouse will soon be featured on Grand Designs Australia.
Perched on 21 acres of hillside Dooralong land, this Central Coast residence has been conceptualised by the Bondi-based SSD Studio and nominated for multiple Sustainability Awards. With a material palette of stone, timber, concrete, and glass, The Elemental House connects those who dwell within seamlessly with the picturesque surrounds.
Incorporating the master suite with a parent’s retreat, ensuite, and generous walk-in wardrobe, the property offers a total of six bedrooms – one of which can be converted into a home office; self-contained guest accommodation included – and three bathrooms. You can park up to six cars on site.

The gallery/library mezzanine overlooks a vast living room, complemented with artwork to bring “light and softness” to the raw, otherwise cold materials present. An impressive custom fireplace anchors the open-planned living space, while the 6.5-metre ceilings and sprawling windows all throughout introduces an incredible sense of scale, proportion, and oddly enough, occasion.
Other key features are as follows:
- Underground wine cellar w/ pool viewing window
- “Extensive” garaging + workshopping area
- Artist studio / another home office surrounded by nature
- High-end thermal insulation + soundproofing
- State-of-the-art appliances
“A total dream home with an endless list of one-of-a-kind inclusions,” reads the listing.
“An absolute credit to its owners, designers, architects, and craftsmen as this is unquestionably one of the finest homes designed and built on the Central Coast.”
“It is the best house I have seen by a country mile,” says Scott Wall of Stone Real Estate.
“One-off homes like this don’t always come up for sale, but when they do, they are very popular.”
The Elemental House located at 1150 Dooralong Road, NSW is now being offered via an expressions of interest campaign with pricing expectations exceeding $4 million. Find out more below.
