This luxury 3 bedroom townhouse fully embraces and integrates an environmentally friendly lifestyle. As the first of its kind in the country, Elmwood 10 has used the most sophisticated European technology to create a home that can operate without the ongoing use of fossil fuels. As a result, it has achieved a 10 star rating on the Victorian Residential Efficiency Scorecard – the highest score possible. The Victorian Residential Efficiency Scorecard rates the energy costs to run a home. Most average Victorian homes only rate 3 stars.
Elmwood 10 has used first class workmanship, thoughtful design and cutting edge energy conservation technology to ensure the house will remain comfortable through both the hottest summer and coldest winter months.
Elmwood 10 is a fully electric home. It generates its own power on site using a 6.6kw solar hybrid Solar Edge system and LG Resu10kwh battery. This includes an electric boosted solar hot water system and is wired for an electric car. This allows the house to be completely independent of gas – including the Electrolux induction cooktop. Elmwood 10 has been air pressure tested to ensure it is completely air tight. This European technology, accompanied with R5 ceiling insulation, R2.5 external wall insulation and high performance, double glazed windows, traps the air inside the home to remove draughts and unnecessary air coming in or escaping. In addition, a heat recovery ventilation system has been installed to ensure there is constant fresh air ducted into the home. It has been tested at 2.9 air changes per hour and the air is filtered with a heat exchanger. This keeps Elmwood 10 always filled with fresh air that has been filtered from allergens and pollutants which makes it a dust-free house. It also ensures the energy in the air is being preserved to maximise your living comfort – so the house will be cool in summer and warm in winter whilst reducing your costs.
This home also boasts modern design features to provide a luxury living experience. There is a concrete ExoTec Vero feature wall that runs along the inside entrance hall for an urban and contemporary feel. The open plan kitchen, living and dining space lead directly to the alfresco which is covered with a sensor drive louvre roof to allow the area to be light-filled. 2.7 metre high ceilings and oak parquetry timber floors make this area seem even more spacious.
The master bedroom includes a walk-through-robe plus ensuite with standalone feature bath whilst there is an additional walk-in-robe plus study nook in bedroom 2 upstairs.
Elmwood 10 comes with split system multi-head air conditioning, Alugard front security door, Austar cabling and landscaping for the front and back yards.
