Sustainable and Luxury Haven

This highly sustainable house is a magnificent combination of sustainable building practices that promote wellbeing together with a focus on visual art to add to the overall ambience of the home. A luxury abode, with a high degree of attention to detail, the house can be likened to the environment of an esky. It is completely isolated from the outdoor environment and features a range of healthy-house initiatives and environmentally-friendly characteristics.

The benefits are numerous with lower utility bills because the home requires minimal heating and cooling, and the householders are likely to have fewer sick days and live in greater comfort if there is less need for a convection heater or air conditioner.
In terms of sustainability, the home is a Net Zero house meaning it will produce more energy than it consumes thanks for a 13.5kW solar PV system and no gas connection.

The slab is hydronically-heated and is insulated, plus all the walls feature double-wall insulation with Exsulite foam walls and R2.7 batts. Two layers of Pro Clima Wrap (internally and externally) connected to the insulated slab and sealing mean the home is airtight. Initial testing revealed only 1.28 air changes per hour compared to the average home in Canberra which can experience more than 15 changes per hour. In addition, thermally-broken, double-glazed windows work in conjunction with mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and highly-efficient appliances to further add to the home's environmental credentials.

To create a unique feature, Natural Homes has worked with local artist Tommy Balogh who has installed six customised artworks in the home. The main feature is located in the living room. 4 metres high and flush with the walls, it is back-lit with LED lighting to enhance its features and draw attention to the high ceilings.
Recycled spotted gum flooring features throughout the home, while the high ceilings extend from the living room, through to the master bedroom and ensuite. The bathrooms are a particular highlight with a natural stone wall in the ensuite and a stone bath in the main bathroom - both accentuated with all-black tapware for a modern aesthetic.

Entertain in style with earthquake speakers installed in the living room, master bedroom and ensuite together with an amazing alfresco kitchen and outdoor cinema. Cooking is a breeze in the designer kitchen that features a steam oven, pyrolytic oven and warming drawer as well as a Dekton by Cosentino benchtop.

Sustainability features:

Large solar PV system - net zero house (it will produce more energy than its consumption). The Solar PV system has a battery as well to store energy for the night time use.

No gas connection (all electrical) = no gas bills or leakage.

Insulated slab.

Airtight house, the blower door test gave us only 1.3 air changes per hour (the average home in Canberra has over 15 changes per hour). We've achieved it by installing 2 layers of proclima wrap (internally and externally), connecting it to insulated slab and ceiling. All junctions and minor holes have been taped, we also used foam to fill small gaps up.
