Rural Property description
“Embracing a Lifestyle”
This unique eco-friendly, pavilion-style home, designed by local architect Guido Eberding (http://new.guidoeberding.com/), merges the interior and exterior elements of the design with the surrounding rural landscape and is set on two hectares (five acres) of well-maintained land with delightful views south over the Bellinger Valley to Mt Gladstone and beyond.
The house comprises two wings connected by a large pavilion area ideal for relaxing and taking in the views. Wide decks (under main roof) provide access and can be further protected by the large retractable shade awnings. All rooms (including studio) have reverse cycle air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Polished blackbutt floors are a feature throughout the house.
The east wing comprises the main living/dining/kitchen space with full-length bi-fold doors and louvred windows to provide excellent cross-ventilation. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, gas cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator recess and microwave space. Tasmanian oak cupboards, including a large pantry, and stone benchtops complete the picture. The open plan living/dining space provides flexible options with two TV points, NBN connection and a gas outlet. The main bedroom with ensuite and built-in robes makes up the rest of the wing with easy access to the large heated spa - the perfect spot to relax at the end of the day.
The west wing comprises two large bedrooms (queen-sized), built-in robes and shares a large fully tiled bathroom with a bath. A study with TV point and hard-wired data point makes for an ideal office space and/or media room or possibly an additional bedroom. The laundry is cleverly concealed behind timber bi-fold doors opening onto the rear deck which leads down to the large storage area/shed under the main roof.
A separate studio with covered carport and small balcony makes for an ideal yoga/gym space, separate office/workspace, large media room or additional bedroom. The studio has its own NBN connection and could be fitted out to make a completely self-contained granny flat (subject to Council approval).
The house is serviced by a 90,000L rainwater tank with a Puretec Hybrid G6 whole-of-house water filtration system, solar hot water (with gas back-up), grid power and solar panels. The solar power system comprises a new 5.4kW solar array plus the original 1kW array, feeding into a 14kW Tesla 2 PowerWall back-up battery which provides uninterrupted power supply in the event of a blackout. Excess power generation is fed back to the grid. An additional 22,500L water tank situated on a high-point of the property is filled from the large spring-fed dam using the fire-fighting pump and provides additional water for the gardens, chicken shed, vegetable garden area and citrus trees.
Lovely landscaped gardens and large lawn areas surround the house providing beautiful outlooks from every room. There is even a mini croquet court down by the dam.
This fantastic lifestyle is just minutes to the heart of Bellingen, a regional community renowned for its vibrant array of boutiques, cafes, markets, exhibitions and festivals. Combined with easy access to local swimming holes and beaches, and only 35 minutes to Coffs Harbour CBD and airport this is an ideal property to satisfy all your needs.
