Building alongside a protected stream never fails to deliver challenges, and this property was no exception. Laying a fully insulated foundation on a 1.5m-deep platform was no easy task, but the resulting 363sqm home showcases a riverside retreat with extensive raised, level-access decking and patios. With multiple living areas, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and space galore, this exquisite two-level home delivers on relaxed family living and envy-inducing entertaining. Perfectly positioned in nature’s lap, it’s only fitting that the home operates with energy efficiency. Solar panels are neatly tucked away on the skillion roof and provide power for electric-car charging and multiple heating systems. These consist of hydronic air-to-water in-slab heating, ducted heat pumps and under-tile heating to three upper-level ensuites. Double glazing with low-e glass and argon gas provide formidable insulation throughout the home, and reflective glass gives the added bonus of privacy. A lift adds future-proofing benefits for the owners to easily access the well-appointed main bedroom upstairs.
