Achieving a 7-star energy efficient rating this home was a finalist in the 2018 HIA GreenSmart awards for Energy Efficiency and Australian Custom Built Home of the Year. This stylish and affordable open plan design with high raked ceilings and polished concrete floors boasts four bedrooms, spacious bathrooms, a centrally positioned and integrated multipurpose room and generous indoor/outdoor living areas.
Natural light and fresh air infiltrate the home through a variety of entry points, from dual windows in the bedrooms to broad stacker doors in the entertaining area and the modern louvres high up in the living area. The smart placement of windows and doors allows the hot air to escape through the luscious internal garden courtyard that is thoughtfully placed at the heart of the home to enable maximum cross-flow ventilation.
Ample glazing attached to the living area affords views of the pool and captures the reflections and motion of sunlight on water and projects a constant display of movement on the floor and wall surfaces in the living room. The climate responsive design of The Elan is incredibly well suited to subtropical climates and our coastal way of life and perfectly showcases the fusion of functionality and sustainability.
