This cleverly designed, passive solar, 4-bedroom family home, presents a unique opportunity in the heart of Torquay’s Stretton Estate. An integrated design philosophy has resulted in a highly energy efficient (7.3 Star energy rating) and versatile family home, filled with natural light and with seamless flow between its spacious interior and the beautiful native garden outside. Impressive ocean views from torquay to the peninsula, aspects to native bushland and garden, combined with the use of natural materials throughout the home unite to create an inherent sense of connection to the surrounding coastal environment.

The ground level offers an expansive open plan living space that flows out to a well sized, north facing, garden via large aperture sliding doors and windows that create a unified indoor/outdoor living experience that’s fabulous for entertaining. The centrally positioned wood fired heater infuses the area with a rustic ambience and offers a viable alternative heat source when running the home off the battery. A large home office/bedroom at the entry to the home is located next to a combined storeroom/powder room which enables conversion to a bathroom should single level living become a necessity. The use of ocean green slate, burnished concrete, and birch ply/recycled messmate joinery on this floor creates an organic feel that sets the tone of the house.

The upper level serves as a private family sanctuary and features solid messmate timber floors throughout and a spacious second living area showcasing ocean views from Torquay to the peninsula. Opposing wide opening north/south and east/west windows sustain the homes connection with its external environment and create breezeway’s that all but negate the need for artificial cooling during the warmer months. The generously proportioned upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms maintain the sense of spaciousness of the lower level and use of the same palate lends cohesion to the design.

Other features include:
– Rylock double glazing throughout
– 6.4kw solar system, backed up by a 13.5kW Tesla power-wall 2-battery
– Mitsubishi multi head split system heating and cooling with central or independent control
– Fully insulated building envelope including under slab and insulated internal walls and floor
