The Top 100 homes in the country achieve Gold Reserve status each year, and proceed to the National Finals.
These are given to entrants who achieve 90% of the available points and judged to be at least 80% above industry standard.
The owners of this new build wanted it to be low maintenance and fitted with top-notch security to have lock-and-leave capability. But this didn’t mean they were willing to compromise on style and space.
Spread over 280sqm, this north-facing home is well-positioned on its private 434sqm rear section. Separate living and family dining areas are central to the well-appointed open-plan kitchen and scullery, featuring large work surfaces constructed from durable engineered stone. Two outdoor tiled patios make entertaining easy. There’s also plenty of space for guests to stay, thanks to four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Energy efficiency is also a priority, with Low-E glazing, R2.8 Pink Batts insulation in the external walls, R4.0 Batts in the ceiling, the latest water-saving tapware, under-tile heating, LED lighting, a gas fire and a ducted heatpump. Outside, low-maintenance cladding has been used and the landscaping is easy to care for. The property even has an electric car charger and keyless entry – what more could you need?
