Looking to get away from the rat-race, but not too far from civilisation?
The property owners looked for the best solution, and found it at the 270-acre, award-winning ecovillage in the beautiful Currumbin Valley on the southern-end of the Gold Coast.
This beautiful home offers the best in sustainable, environmentally conscious design and can be yours for $785,000, below replacement cost.
It features passive solar design (6½-star rating), solar power (5kW), solar hot water, 52,000-litre rainwater tanks, well-landscaped garden with veggie-troughs to grow your own veggies and salads, nearby to community facilities including swimming pool, gym, pizza oven, and only seven minutes to the beach.
The house has very generous proportions (270m2 internal floor area), with cathedral ceilings and clerestory to bring-in winter sun, two large decks (31 and 16m2), extra-wide corridor, double-garage (6.7 x 7m), extensive storage cupboards, all on one level (ideal for wheelchair / disabled access), on a 974m2 site. There is a large, open-plan lounge / dining with bi-fold doors to the north-facing deck, generous kitchen, laundry and three bedrooms:
- main bedroom (4 x 5.6m) with walk-in-robe and large en-suite
- 2nd bedroom (4 x 4.3m)
- 3rd bedroom (4 x 8.7m) with kitchenette, deck, separate entry and separable bathroom (can be used as office, consulting/therapy room, B&B or partitioned to create a 4th bedroom).
The garden is low-maintenance. There are three raised veggie tubs 2.5m x 1.2m to grow your own veggies and salads. The land is flat, so there’s plenty of scope to add more plantings if the owner wishes.
Only minutes away from world-class beaches, five schools (primary and high), Gold Coast Coolangatta airport, and all that the Gold and Tweed Coasts offer.
