SUSTAINABLE LIVING WITHOUT COMPROMISE
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.
