Masterpiece of sustainable design

As kind on the eyes as it is to the environment, this highly-engineered home is a healthy place for a family to live and grow. The closed-loop creation of world renowned sustainability designer Joost Bakker, the 3 bedroom building uses passive-solar principles to minimise the use of power and water, yet remain cool in summer and warm in winter. On 7.5 acres, 'The Green House' is a masterpiece of sustainable design, from recycled brick gabion walls housing straw bale insulation, to Bakker's trademark green roof.

Large European thermal windows and doors welcome natural light and country views and a dual-opening Cheminees Philippe fireplace between dining and lounge maximises the pleasure of a real open fire. Entertainers' kitchen features Miele oven, cooktop and dishwasher, heated concrete floors and sandblasted stainless steel benchtops. Solar hot water for kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Plenty of storage with walk-in linen closet and bedroom robes. Mains water and power service the property, complimented by a commercial-scale bore for the home and gardens, providing options for a winery, market garden and more. Over 100 trees bear fruit beyond the rich green lawns and veggie gardens, including apricots, olives, pears, almond, peaches and five varieties of plum.

Enjoy the sophisticated simplicity of this beautiful home, just a two minute drive to central Daylesford in the foothills of Victoria's spa capital.
