Gorgeous sun and light filled 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom passive solar designed home. Enjoy all the seasons of Daylesford including cozy winters with low heating bills. All with a large level block of 818m2 with endless options.
At the time of building this house easily achieved its 5 star rating (the maximum then) and is a future proofed asset with its energy efficient design.
You can feel it – when you walk in on a cold day the temperature is amazing. Passive solar with thermal mass works. In winter the sun pours in and heat is retained into the evening.
On a hot day the shading, double glazing and window siting all work and you have a cool house through hot periods, with excellent cross ventilation and insulation.
Apart from comfort enjoy bonus low energy bills – this house has passive solar done correctly.
The use of recycled timbers for the kitchen and doors and windows as well as re-use of other materials, contributes to the ‘fantastic feel’. Carefully designed, the house works whether for a family or a couple. The front rooms have been used as both bedrooms and offices. The upstairs with ensuite is also a flexible space for older children or a parents retreat.¬
Outdoor living entertaining spaces abound. Through summer and into autumn the vine covered pergola provides shade and gorgeous areas for long lunches. The fire pit in the garden provides great BBQs and fireside chats.
King Parrots, Lorikeets and Firetail Finches are regular visitors, along with the local Magpie family.
There is so much upside with the large block of land – plenty of level space for children, pets, magnificent deep volcanic soil for veggie patch, fruit trees . Room to build a studio or second home.
Anyone with mobility issues (now or later) can easily live on the lower floor with wide access doors and large, accessible main bathroom. Easy access also to the garden.
Excellent long and short term rental income and an excellent future asset.
