War­ragul townhouse a show­case of en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and ur­ban de­sign

The Gazette Real Estate - - Real Estate -

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.

Glass stack­ing doors from the liv­ing area open to a cov­ered al­fresco area, steps from here lead to an el­e­vated ter­race and sec­ond seat­ing area.

A built-in mains gas bar­beque, sink, stor­age and a ceil­ing fan are found in the al­fresco area.

Po­si­tioned for pri­vacy, the main bed­room in­cludes built-in robes, en­suite and slid­ing door ac­cess to the al­fresco area.

Tim­ber pan­elling behind the bed­head is a rus­tic yet warm de­sign el­e­ment here.

Both bath­rooms are beau­ti­fully ap­pointed with con­crete topped van­i­ties and con­tem­po­rary fix­tures.

The main bath­room also in­cludes a stun­ning free­stand­ing bath, the en­suite fea­tures a walk-in shower with a pri­vacy glazed win­dow over­look­ing a de­light­ful wa­ter fea­ture.

Num­ber 5 Ge­orge Street, War­ragul is ex­em­plary in mod­ern de­sign and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency of­fer­ing a stress free life­style of com­fort and con­ve­nience.

On the mar­ket for $785,000.
