Architectural jewel in the hills

THE location, design and passive solar qualities of this Gooseberry Hill home are sure to appeal to anyone looking for a new home.

Built into a hill in 2011 the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has views of the Perth city skyline and hills.

Agent Grant Winning said a great deal of thought had gone into the orientation of the home with the polished concrete floors taking full advantage of the winter sun.

Then during the warmer months the home’s steel frame with internal and external wall insulation, roller shutters and ceiling insulation kept energy costs to a minimum.

He said the owners loved living there but their circumstances had changed.

The home’s suspended timber deck alfresco has great views, a spa pool, ceiling fans and a misting system.

One bedroom is on the top floor while the other three are on the lower level bedrooms.

All the bedrooms have ceiling fans and three have robes and reverse-cycle air-conditioning.

In the main bedroom the ensuite has a double shower and double vanity while the main bathroom has walk-in shower to the bath.

An open plan living and dining area has reverse-cycle air-conditioning and a ceiling fan.

The kitchen has an induction cooktop, dishwasher and a silent rangehood.

There is ethernet wiring and lots of internal and external storage space.

The swimming pool is fitted with an integrated non-chlorinated auto fill pool with heat pump.

To keep energy costs low the home has a 5kW solar PV system.

On a 2229sqm lockand-leave block the home has about 150sqm of sub-irrigation from an aerobic treatment unit system.
