The Alpine show home not only stays true to the Colorado homes that inspired the design, it also shows how Harwood Homes pioneers new ground. The company has a philosophy of exploring authentic styles, while taking clients on a journey. It’s all about building for today, while looking to tomorrow. This house is a perfect example: The Alpine marries the rustic charm of natural materials with state-of-the-art systems such as a heat-pump hot-water system and ducted heating. The emphasis on sustainability is reflected in the natural materials used, and the home also performs beautifully inside. The 283sqm three-bedroom house is double-glazed throughout, including the garage. Careful placement of glass means solar warmth is captured and window dressings, including thermal backed floor-length drapes, trap the heat. The ducted heat-pump system warms the entire house and LED lighting, including infra-red and sensor foot lights, features throughout. Water-efficient appliances have also been installed. A louvre roof over the deck means outdoor living is a year-round pleasure. Form, function and vision.
