Warragul townhouse a showcase of energy efficiency and urban design
With a focus on energy efficiency, low maintenance and contemporary design, this fashionable townhouse in Warragul raises the benchmark in urban living.
The inner town location is a further bonus with all the town’s amenities on the doorstep.
A stunning renovation and extension has transformed the original modest weatherboard cottage into a sleek, modern home featuring three bedrooms, including a stylish main bedroom suite, formal sitting room, open plan kitchen, meals and family living area.
Extensive terracing and landscaping has created an eye catching exterior where multiple levels provide outdoor entertaining spaces with virtually no maintenance.
There is a single carport at the front of the property plus rear lane access to a single garage and workshop.
It is the 8 star energy rating which is the most impressive.
Passive design principles include the northerly aspect of the main living area, double glazing and polished concrete flooring in the extension, a material known for its excellent thermal mass qualities.
Strategically positioned windows, including automatically operating clerestory windows, assist with airflow and maximise the light.
A 4.5kw solar system supplies the power, hot water and lighting, including LED lights throughout and two discreetly placed water tanks provide water for the toilets and washing machine.
Polished timber floorboards, found in the entry hall are an original feature, whilst movement sensor strip lighting is a modern update.
Square set cornices throughout create clean lines and a feeling of space.
The original section of the home includes the formal sitting or theatre room, the two secondary bedrooms with built-in robes, family bathroom, double linen press and a separate toilet.
Positioned at the rear of the layout are the open plan kitchen, meals and family living area, laundry and the main bedroom.
Minimalist in design, the kitchen is a true showpiece with flush panel cabinetry, multiple drawers, stainless steel counter top with integrated sink and all electric Bosch appliances, including an induction cooktop, wall oven and a dishwasher.
Pride of place is the impressive concrete island bench adding an industrial edge to the scheme.
