Straw bales as you've never seen them before

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

Even those who don’t have a soft spot for the charm of country life will find it hard to resist the lure of The Bales House. In fact, we’re confident this architect-designed property will change every misconception you’ve ever had about straw bales. The house is made from rendered straw bales, recycled timbers and sandstone, making the property modern, welcoming and totally unique.

With its three generous bedrooms the house is perfect for two families – the bright and cheery bunk beds will be a hit with kids – or a group of eight. The open-plan living space has a roomy kitchen, complete with breakfast bar and coffee machine; the two lounge areas both have fireplaces. Head outdoors and you’ll find a spring-fed dam, a play area for young ones – older kids will love the trampoline too – and a north-east facing deck. Early risers will find the deck makes a peaceful perch for taking in the morning sunshine. Those tucking into dinners on the deck won’t miss out either, thanks to visits by mobs of wallabies who come to graze on the lawns.

There is plenty to keep you occupied in Trentham. From The Bales House, it’s only a five-minute walk to Wombat Forest or a 10-minute stroll in the opposite direction to Trentham’s main street and its eateries, boutiques, galleries and eclectic novelty shops. The third Saturday of every month also sees the town play host to a farmers’ market – The Bale House’s owners even provide a basket for those looking to snap up some fresh local produce.
