Live the Good Life…this is your ticket to that long-awaited tree change!

This stunning, architecturally-designed and award-winning house, is ready and waiting in the hills of Penwortham. The home boasts a clever, sustainable design that incorporates passive design principles that keep the house warm in Winter and cool in Summer, to aid comfort and reduce energy consumption. Built using a steel and timber frame, featuring insulating marine ply walls, a central sand-filled, besser block wall and polished concrete floors that contribute to the thermal mass of the building. The home is filled with light and the design is enhanced by curved and angled Colourbond ceilings; the design alludes to mid-century homes of yesteryear with the benefits of modern design and flair.

Soak in the stunning and ever changing views of the gorgeous Skilly Valley from the spacious north-facing front pavilion. The open-plan living area and kitchen are versatile and thoughtfully designed, a split system for the warmer months and a combustion heater for the cooler months, fans in all rooms aid air flow, no matter the season. There is a purposeful connection between inside and out via the bi-fold doors which lead out to the alluring, undercover pergola area which is fully insulated and perfect for entertaining.

The master suite has a large ensuite and an office nook, which is perfect for working from home while soaking in views of the garden. The family bathroom is located in the rear pavilion along with the two other bedrooms.
