A showcase of sustainable living and urban design
From the striking façade to the ultra-chic, modern interior, this remarkable Warragul home is a testament to sustainable living, energy efficiency and urban design.
An impressive 8 star energy rating, incorporating a 4.5kw solar system, two water tanks for the toilets and laundry, double glazing and passive design principles minimises environmental impact and reduces energy costs to virtually zero. A further bonus is the inner town location with shops, cafes, Civic Park and the Arts Centre practically on the doorstep. Once a modest weatherboard cottage, an innovative renovation and extension has created a stylish, contemporary residence featuring three bedrooms, including a lavish main bedroom suite, formal sitting room or home office, open plan kitchen, meals and living area. Extensive terracing and landscaping has resulted in an eye catching exterior and multiple levels at the rear providing outdoor entertaining spaces with virtually no maintenance. There is a single carport at the front of the property with power supply for hybrid vehicles plus rear lane access to a single Colorbond garage and workshop. Passive design features include the northerly aspect of the main living area and polished concrete flooring, known for its excellent thermal mass properties, in the extension. Strategically positioned windows, in particular the automated clerestory windows in the dining area, assist with ventilation and maximise the light. Split system air conditioners in the home office and living area also maintain climate control. 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 comprises the formal sitting room or home office, 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, the main bedroom suite and the laundry. 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. Centrepiece is the impressive concrete island bench adding an industrial edge to the scheme. Glass stacking doors from the living area open to a covered deck with steps leading to an elevated terrace and second seating area at the rear of the property. A built-in mains gas barbeque, sink, storage and a ceiling fan are found in the alfresco. Positioned for privacy, the main bedroom includes built-in robes, an ensuite and sliding door access to the alfresco. 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.
With a focus on energy efficiency, low maintenance and contemporary design, number 5 George Street Warragul offers a stress free lifestyle of comfort and convenience.
