Featuring The Elements design from the Breathe Series, a sustainably smart range of homes, the seasons are welcomed into your living area with an abundance of natural light and graceful sea breezes at every opportunity. This wonderful four bedroom, two bathroom, three living area home has been awarded with an 8 Star Thermal Energy Rating. The nationwide house energy rating scheme (NatHERS) is a system, measured out of ten, that rates the energy efficiency of a home informing and allowing owners to save on energy bills through smarter design choices. The design embodies best practice sustainable principles embracing the northern aspect, coastal breezes and natural sun light into the open plan living space and external living area. Cross ventilation is of extreme importance with open able windows and doors, single depth living spaces and dual windows in secondary bedrooms being placed accordingly to take advantage of the cooling breezes. Smart positioned sleek louvre windows capture the cooling breezes and direct it throughout the rest of the home and push the hot stale air out and up through the lush central garden courtyard bringing greenery, life and lungs to the home. The large raked ceiling in the living area and high positioned glazing allow the beautiful polished concrete floor to absorb the natural sun rays and heat and rerelease it throughout the home when needed, particularly in the colder winter months. The home is insulated in all ceilings and walls including the garage and exceeds the requirements by Building Sustainability Index (BASIX). Light weight external cladding and light paint and roof colour selection keeps the overall heat absorbency down. Other sustainable features of the home include 3-5 star WELS rated tap ware and showers in the Kitchen, Laundry and Bathrooms, a 5000 Litre Rainwater tank servicing the gardens, swimming pool, toilets and laundry, an Apricus Evacuated Tube Solar Hot water system, LED Lighting throughout the home and low VOC cabinetry and internal and external paints.
