High Quality Straw Bale Home Fabulous Energy Efficiency

This is an absolutely special home featuring "Straw Bale" construction surrounded by nature with gorgeous views of the surrounding hills and Black Jones creek. Just 25 minutes from the centre of Canberra or the airport, this magnificent 4 bedroom plus study home sits on 9.8 acres (4 Ha) and represents a fantastic collaboration between the owners, architect and builder resulting in a one-off home that is exceptional, providing over the top inclusions and Fabulous Energy Efficiency.

The half metre-thick load bearing straw bale walls are estimated to provide between R6 - R9 insulation, the ceiling has R8 (2XR4) insulation and includes R2 insulation in every other internal wall to minimise noise and increase comfort. The custom made ultra-efficient triple glaze tilt and turn windows and doors offer unique framing and sealing providing the highest energy efficiency and sound protection. The inside temperature during the last year has sat between 17 and 26 degrees, consistently - without any heating or cooling. You won't feel any of the searing temperatures Canberra has recently experienced in this highly insulated home.

The leading edge north facing solar passive design, architecture and the owner's passion to build a highly energy efficient home (based on similar designs from their homeland in Sweden) make this a once in a lifetime opportunity for you and your family and a peaceful alternative to city hustle and bustle: this property is ideal for just relaxing and enjoying nature.

Apart from the beautiful rendered outside facade the home also features rendered interior walls, feature mud brick walls, very spacious kitchen with huge pantry, raked ceilings in family room with skylight, laminated floors in the bedrooms, plenty of storage, living room and study, wide veranda on three sides blocking out the hot summer sun and outdoor spa for entertaining,

Of special mention is the master bedroom suite offering an exclusive private space for mum and dad with lovely rural views, walk-in robe, huge en-suite with double-vanity, double shower, spa bath and your own sauna!

But it's not just the home itself that makes this property value for money it's also the addition of a separate large barn style shed that includes a studio, bedroom, small kitchen/living and the bonus is a fully sound proofed music room (where you can let your hair down) plus additional garaging and storage space.
