Self Sufficient Living In StyleExperience a home where the solid stabilised rammed earth walls envelop you in quietness, warmth and security. Where every window frames the valley and natural surrounds that living on over an acre in Emerald provides. This unique eco-friendly, passive-solar home is the type of house that rarely enters the market and a radical improvement over the typical template houses built these days!
Designed so winter sun fills the home, yet still protected from the summer sun, this north-facing home has heated polished concrete floors, timber stacking windows & french doors with Low-E glazing, a naturally-cooled walk-in pantry, 9 foot ceilings and a large kitchen with a magnificent custom-built bench-top with 900mm La Germania stainless steel cooker. Quality remote-controlled roller shutters are fitted to most window and doors, offering security and insulation at the push of a single button. There is even a remote -controlled Cafe awning over the deck. Comfort is assured with the German made hydronic in-floor heating system which is zoned and extends throughout the home except pantry. The gentle, quiet radiant heat means no clicking of thermostats or blowing of air conditioners!
The grid fed solar power system is locked in at the highest rebate (Premium FiT) for years to come, meaning minimal power bills, or maybe even credits back to you. With the large catchment roof surface, the 25,000L water tank can supply you with free water for most of the year - the system even automatically switches between rain water and mains if the tank runs low.
The north facing land flattens out at the bottom, complete with a spring fed creek that flows year round into Menzies Creek just at the bottom of the no-through road. Enjoy the Autumn colours while sitting in front of the crackling fire. Relax on the unique & expansive decking overlooking fruit trees & a huge variety of native animals, with the sounds of the flowing creek bubbling in the back ground. There are also 2 sheds, a chook house and a cubby for the kids!
Access to the property is via 5 metre wide remote-controlled gate with fast-opening system, leading down the bitumen driveway to the carport. Steps down to the home have been constructed from re-cycled blue-stone used as ballast in old sailing ships moored at Port Melbourne.
All this within a short distance of Emerald village and Wellington Road for quick access to the major freeways, live the healthy lifestyle.
