It is rare to find a house that offers both superior style and comfort. Many original homes in Bangalow were built at a time when comfort was not even a consideration! This home has been designed specifically for the site and has been oriented to capture the north-easterly breezes in summer and be protected by the southerlies in winter. The elevated home provides an excellent opportunity to capture cross breezes reducing the need for air conditioning or ceiling fans on those hot days. The extensive use of timbers throughout the home are used to increase sound absorption and create warmth in the home during winter. Built with pole construction, the home is sturdy and safe in the strongest of gales. In addition to the energy efficient design of the home, there is a 2KW photovoltaic solar panel system feeding back into the grid. The home also features gas cooking and a gas point if required in winter. With a flexible layout over two levels, the home lends itself to a number of different uses. An extremely large downstairs area with its own bathroom and entrance could be the perfect granny flat or home office. The upstairs section features the main living, kitchen and 3 bedrooms – all with doors leading out to the northeast-facing verandahs. There is a high, raked style ceiling with exposed beams adding to the contemporary feel of the home. The property features two street frontages which allows access to Wright Place and Rifle Range Road and off street parking at both entrances. The generous 1438sqm block has flat grass areas, inground saltwater pool with spa feature and a great area for a veggie patch. This is a unique property in Bangalow. You will not find another one like it. Please phone today to arrange an inspection.
