We first showed you this eco wonder in 2019, when it was opened to the public for Sustainable House Day, and we’ve not managed to lose interest in it since then. The brief was simple – replace an existing 1930s house with a contemporary low-carbon footprint home big enough for a family of six. The result – nothing short of stunning. The 8.1 star, five-bedroom home designed by TS4 Living and built by Aria Homes features $55,000 worth of sustainable features including a 6.4kw solar system, efficient lighting and appliances, 22,500L of above-ground rainwater storage and is surrounded by a waterwise garden. Oh, and did we mention it’s gorgeous?
