Bidding Guide - $500,000+
Here is your opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint, as well as your budget! Built with sustainability in mind, you will not only be extremely comfortable, but your impact on the environment is minimised.
With a large open plan living and dining space, TWO rooms (one bedroom plus a separate enclosed study of the same size), a modern kitchen with plenty of storage and a modern bathroom creating space and privacy between the two bedrooms.
The home itself is built using 'Thermacell design', this is a thick polystyrene brick with a full concrete core, Thermacell has some of the highest insulation properties in the building industry. The owners have also re-insulated roof throughout.
The solar passive design has an ideal orientation to maximise north facing windows, with black floor tiles to absorb direct radiation, and re-radiate warmth into the night. All windows are double glazed with either honeycomb insulating blinds and/or drop down shades to control heating and cooling from the sun. Low level louvres in the master bedroom and open plan space allow the house to quickly cool off during the summer evenings.
This clever design means you use the environment to heat and cool your home, however there are two loops of hydronic heating pipes installed for future installation of a heat pump for efficient in slab heating if you wish to install down the track.
Roof orientation allowing space for 2kW of PV solar panels on North facing roof and the shallow angle of the south facing roof means PV could potentially be installed on racking to point North. There is also a solar hot water system, once again reducing your bills.
Outside is just as clever with a well designed edible landscape, mature fruiting trees and herbs surround you. The rain water tank and the grey water run off help water these trees with the use of clever water recycling.
With only one neighbour with the duplex design, NO body corporate fees and just a short 200m walk to Scullin Shops, the location is simply ideal!
This could be the perfect starter home, downsizing opportunity or an ideal low maintenance investment. It is a great opportunity to get a fantastic home in the thriving Scullin market at an affordable price. Give us a call today!

- Dual occupancy block, with main street frontage with separate driveway access
