Builder Three Pigs reaps reward as buyers fight for striking house with big garage

Three Pigs designed and built the custom house at 12 Bachli Court, Anglesea.

A STRIKING split level house with a dramatic bridge walkway entry and treetops views in Anglesea has impressed buyers with its creative use of space.

But it was the unusual inclusion of a huge garage, with room for six cars plus a separate workshop, that was clincher for two buyers who competed for 12 Bachli Court.

The four-bedroom house, built by owner builders Three Pigs Homes and Developments, sold for $1.2 million to a local electrician who will use the extra space to accommodate his work equipment.

Hayden, Anglesea agent Robyn Dodd said the garaging appealed to everyone from car restorers to tradesman.

“The house was quite unique with three different levels and the most fabulous big garage and really that was the attraction, it’s very unique in the area to have a big garage,” Ms Dodd said.

“It was massive, you could put a couple of cars in there and there was an entire room for storage.”

A strong outdoor connection is at the heart of the angular modern design, with the central living zone flowing out to a north-facing deck with bush views.

There are three bedrooms off this central hub, including the main bedroom with private spa room.

The spa room has treetop views.

Downstairs is a separate self-contained one-bedroom apartment with its own deck.

“(Three Pigs) build really interesting, very solid and very practical homes,” Ms Dodd said.

“They think about where they are building and make the most out of the block.”
