The Gazette Real Estate - - Front Page -

Down a quiet coun­try road, amongst pic­turesque farm­land in Drouin South, this unique prop­erty of­fers a life­style of pri­vacy and peace.

Num­ber 105 Rin­gin Road is a fas­ci­nat­ing home, built by the cur­rent own­ers with an em­pha­sis on com­fort, re­laxed liv­ing and pas­sive en­ergy de­sign prin­ci­ples.

A con­crete slab foun­da­tion and solid mud brick con­struc­tion, painted a soft earthy hue to blend in with the en­vi­ron­ment, to­gether with the northerly ori­en­ta­tion and a 5kw so­lar sys­tem en­sure a high level of cli­mate con­trol with lit­tle or no power bills.

LED light­ing, so­lar hot wa­ter and an al­most new Lopi solid fuel heater also con­trib­ute to the en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, an in­no­va­tive home ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem as­sists with in­ter­nal tem­per­a­ture and im­proved air qual­ity.

The five bed­room res­i­dence is po­si­tioned on ap­prox­i­mately three acres of level land with serene views of the sur­round­ing ru­ral land­scape.

Ma­ture trees, in­clud­ing na­tives and de­cid­u­ous, two ponds and well kept lawns cre­ate a park­like set­ting.

As­sorted fruit trees, berries, nuts and es­tab­lished veg­etable beds stock the home larder.

A flex­i­ble lay­out com­prises the main bed­room with an en­suite, be­spoke tim­ber kitchen, spa­cious open plan liv­ing/din­ing area, sec­ond liv­ing/rum­pus room and a double car­port URL with an ad­join­ing stor­age room.

Slate floor­ing and warm tim­bers, in­clud­ing re­cy­cled Ore­gon beams, jar­rah kitchen cab­i­nets and counter tops give the home a re­laxed am­bi­ence, whilst re­claimed lead­light win­dows add an el­e­ment of his­tory and char­ac­ter.

En­try from the car­port leads past the util­i­ties/mud room, a prac­ti­cal space with plenty of stor­age for boots and coats as well as linen, then through to the kitchen and liv­ing area.

Large win­dows on the northerly as­pect max­imise the light, win­ter sun and the peace­ful treed out­look.

Cork floor­ing in the kitchen is soft un­der­foot and com­ple­ments the beau­ti­fully crafted cab­i­netry and tim­ber work sur­faces.

Mar­ble in­sets in the work sur­face are a clever ad­di­tion for the home baker as well as for hot pans and pots.

The all elec­tric St Ge­orge dual oven cooker takes pride of place and the gen­er­ous walk-in pantry pro­vides am­ple stor­age.

Glass doors from the liv­ing area lead to a brick ter­race along the north face.

Ad­join­ing the main liv­ing area are the sec­ond liv­ing/rum­pus room and the four sec­ondary bed­rooms.

A short pas­sage­way con­nects the fam­ily bath­room, sep­a­rate toi­let and the main bed­room with di­rect ac­cess to a pri­vate pa­tio and fern­ery, mir­rored robes and the en­suite, which can also be en­tered from the util­i­ties room.

Both bathrooms are mod­ern and stylish with qual­ity fix­tures, fea­ture til­ing and neu­tral dé­cor.

Fur­ther im­prove­ments in­clude a five bay shed with two roller doors, con­crete floor and pro­vi­sion for power, gar­den/store shed with power and two con­crete wa­ter tanks with 88,000 litre ca­pac­ity.

The prop­erty is po­si­tioned on a sealed road, ap­prox­i­mately five min­utes’ drive from the cen­tre of Drouin.
