Top Ten Homes of 2017

To list this house as one of our ‘TOP TEN homes of 2017’, is, to be frank, an understatement. ‘Research House’ in Eltham is without a doubt one of the most incredible homes we’ve photographed – ever.

This remarkable house in Eltham, just around 30 mins North East of Melbourne, belongs to Architect and his partner Deb Ganderton.

‘I feel like this house never dates. I tried to design something that was timeless.’ – John Henry.

We’ve been photographing unique Australian homes for nearly TEN (10!) years now… but we still get crazy jitters when we capture a house as magical and unique as this!

It was back in August that we first ran our story on ‘Research House’, the Eltham home of architect and Deb Ganderton. A mind-boggling 1,000 cubic metre space, with 6.5 metre high walls and the most jaw-dropping wall of windows overlooking leafy bushland, this is a home truly unlike any other.

Designed by John, the house was built from scratch, commencing in 2000. Though grand in scale, this is a home built on a budget. John and Deb bought their block for $105,000 in 1998, and then spent around $250,000 building the house.  To save on costs, the house was constructed using a factory-made shed that John customised, with concrete slabs and a steel structure. The result is a unique floorplan which comprises five open ‘rooms’, demarcated by changes in floor level rather than dividing walls.

And then, of course, there’s the furniture, art and objects – a veritable museum’s worth of colourful collectibles, amassed over a lifetime of collecting!

For the full story and many more photos of this incredible home, do revisit the original story!
