This custom-built single-storey Jolimont property exudes practicality, comfort, and a high standard of design. The highly contemporary home comprises three bedrooms, a study, an open-plan living, dining and entertaining area, and a central kitchen, which is situated next to the laundry and alfresco for optimum convenience. The property also has a large double garage, which includes a storage area, a car hoist and durable epoxy-finished flooring, which is ideal for automotive enthusiasts.
The clients wanted a sustainable and accessible home that would suit their lifestyle and meet their future comfort needs. Right Homes achieved this by employing a passive solar design, and by incorporating smart-glass windows, and ceiling fans, as well as wall and ceiling insulation. A photovoltaic (PV) and solar hot-water system were also installed. The home is also highly accessible and includes wide doorframes and lever handles throughout each room, as well as flush thresholds in showers to accommodate all levels of ability.
The home’s passive solar design incorporates the Housing Industry Association’s (HIA) GreenSmart Principles and is highly energy- and water-efficient. With an 8.5-star Building Energy Rating Scheme (BERS) rating, the home features energy-efficient lighting, as well as water-saving tapware that is plumbed to two underground 7,000L rainwater tanks, which results in a potable-water reduction of approximately 80 per cent.
