A HOME like no other is a phrase often used in real estate, but this house deserves the accolade.
Covered with earth, it has an 8.7-star energy rating, comfortable temperatures year-round, a north-south orientation capturing the northern light, winter warmth and sunshine and cooling cross-breezes, and is sheltered from passing storms and winds.
Designed by Baldwin O’Bryan Architects, it is extremely stylish as well, with sealed marine ply and curved iron ceilings giving it an industrial vibe, which is complemented by grass cloth wall coverings and recyclable flooring.
There is an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area opening to a landing where you can entertain or just sit and relax overlooking the lawn and gardens.
The bedrooms open to another landing and the bathroom has a safety spa/bath and shower with hot water heated by a solar system with electric booster.
There is also a study area in the entry zone.
The property includes a 120sq m workshop with power connected, 75sq m lean-to with triple-bay parking and automatic remote doors, and a rainwater tank.
Your sustainable escape to nature is complete with 1.03ha of South-West countryside, including a spring waterhole, parkland grounds, jarrah trees and an array of native and fruit trees for the birds and bees to enjoy.
