This home is environmentally friendly, making full use of its location to capture the winter sun and cross ventilation for cooling. Maximising its thermodynamics coupled with double glazed windows results in exceptional natural temperature regulation. Those with chemical sensitivity or asthma will appreciate that only low or zero VOC paints and varnishes have been used in this home.
Outside are landscaped gardens which feature indigenous flora. The outdoor shower is handy for washing off the sand after a day at the beach.
There is a single carport with extra off-street parking for a second vehicle.
The back of the property backs directly onto the Portarlington Recreation Reserve. Walk out the back gate to extensive parkland and walking tracks which lead to wetlands and a fauna and flora reserve.
Take a one kilometre stroll to the centre of Portarlington where you will find a selection of shops, cafes, the iconic Grand Hotel and a Woolworths supermarket. From here, walk across the foreshore reserve to the beach and the pier where the ferry to Geelong and Melbourne docks.
Within a 5 minute drive of the property are a number of acclaimed wineries. Take a 25 minute drive to the bustling city of Geelong or 40 minutes to the official start of the Great Ocean Road at Torquay.
