Aplite House is a very private home base that is well positioned for exploring Tasmania's East Coast. While at the house there is a sense of immersion in native Tasmanian forest with views over Moulting Lagoon conservation area it is a very relaxing and tranquil environment. Nearby is pristine Friendly Beaches that are almost 8 km long and most times feels like you have the entire beach to yourself. Aplite House is a sanctuary in the heart of one of Australia's most iconic landscapes. While enjoying the seclusion and privacy of the property it is within easy reach to explore Coles Bay, Bicheno, Wineglass Bay hiking trail, Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Bluestone Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Bicheno Blowhole, Denison Beach, Freycinet National Park, Douglas Apsley National Park and East Coast Vineyards, along with the many other activities the region offers.
The property surrounding Aplite House is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna including orchids, tasmanian devils, wombats, possums, wallabies, quolls and wedge tail eagles.
Architecturally designed by Stephen Geason. Stephen was commissioned while a Director of prominant Hobart Architectural firm Dock 4. He was selected because of his appreciation for Tasmania and the Freycinet region. The brief was to design a solar passive, site specific home used for short to medium length, self catering stays of guests, with multiple locations to relax, built using Tasmanian materials. Stephen first visited the property prior to any site preparation, he walked over the entire property and discussed location. When the site was selected the Architectural design process began and with extensive inclusive discussion with the owner over the 18 months process a plan to build from was concluded that we the owners are very pleased with. For those who have or do take a well deserved rest in the seat on the saddle of the Wineglass Bay walk, they can thank Stephen for the experience of it, he designed and built the Saddle seat as a student some time ago.
The build of Aplite House was completed by the owners over a 5 year period. It was very important to use Tasmanian materials extensively. There has been a very deliberate and considered effort to present Tasmania in every way possible. This includes the hand built furniture within, most of which has been made of the timber sourced from a single tree.The house gathers its own water supply from rainfall stored in three 24000 litre tanks. It is off grid solar powered with a generator back up. There has been much research and development to achieve the power generation suited to consumption of the house, scaled to the electrical appliances within and ensuring the comfort for those using the house to the level they are familiar with. Aplite House has a very small global footprint there is minimal input from external facilities. There has been no compromise for comfort required to achieve this environmentally friendly house, which has minimal need for heating or cooling other than that provided by the sun and cross ventilation.
Aplite House is off grid solar powered, self catering, luxury eco accommodation.
There is a continually growing collection of Tasmanian Art rotated. This includes painting, photography, ceramics, glass work, print making, origami and sculpture.
We the owners of Aplite House have a high enjoyment and appreciation for Tasmania and are particularly fond of the Freycinet region and this very special property. It is our goal to translate this into memorable and enjoyable experiences for those who spend time at Aplite House.
