Located in the village of Arakoon surrounded by national parks and near the popular holiday destination of South West Rocks on the NSW mid north coast, this home is just minutes walk from beautiful beaches. The historic Trial Bay Gaol, Saltwater Lagoon, Little Bay, Gap Beach and popular bushwalking tracks are also nearby.
Built in 2012 on a large lot adjoining Hat Head National Park on a quiet street in a bushland setting, this architect designed solar passive home is connected to town water and sewer and is fully compliant with Australian Standards for bushfire protection. Solar hot water, photovoltaic solar power, and insulated walls and ceiling keep energy costs low and the design, materials and native garden ensure on-going low maintenance requirements.
The home has 3 large bedrooms, each with built in robes and a separate toilet, bathroom, and laundry. A central breezeway separates the bedrooms from the living areas, and provides additional overflow sleeping. Opening up the breezeway allows sea breezes to flow through the house.
The main living area comprises the lounge and a stainless steel kitchen with polished concrete floor. Marine ply lining throughout the living areas and bedrooms provide a striking look and warm feel to the rooms.
Ceiling fans throughout and a wood burner in the lounge complement the solar passive design ensuring the house stays cool in summer and warm in winter.
A large secure basement storage area under the house contains tanks with 10,000 litres water storage. These are fully plumbed into the house supply and can be used to supplement town water as desired.
A carport and garage provide ample secure and convenient storage.
