Mid-Century Style for 21st Century Coastal Living!

Originally built in 1969, this double-brick split level home has been completely upgraded for the sustainable 21st Century living, while maintaining its original character. Mid-Century modernist architecture champions clean, straight lines that create a sense of openness and integration with the surrounding environment, inviting the outside in. Every room in this elevated home is light, bright, and oriented either north, east, or west. Every bedroom has a garden outlook.

The all-electric house has solar panels and batteries that power a heat pump hot water system, induction stove, and other contemporary appliances. Windows and doors throughout are double-glazed for extra energy efficiency. The generous kitchen has plenty of storage, including a pull-out pantry and swing-out corner cupboards. Efficient reverse cycle AC heats and cools the upstairs living area, combined with ceiling fans and remote-control external blinds. All bedrooms and both bathrooms have efficient Nobo electric panel heaters, and two bedrooms also have ceiling fans. The downstairs bedrooms have external shade blinds that help keep them cool even on hot summer days.

An upper-level deck running north and west provides expansive views across Spring Valley and its spectacular sunsets. The dramatically angled veranda is designed to maximise sunlight slanting into the living area during the winter months while shading the windows and deck in summer. A concrete sheet has been inserted into the deck to provide the base for a small fire pit on cooler evenings.

The downstairs living area provides a separate space for children or teenagers and leads onto a large, sheltered courtyard with multiple decks for maximising sun or shade and a small pond abounding with plant life and goldfish. The low maintenance courtyard garden sits on top of a 40,000-litre rainwater tank (converted from a former swimming pool) and is irrigated by an automated watering system. The underground tank also irrigates the established vegetable beds and raised herb garden and is supplemented by three more rainwater tanks secluded behind the garage and on the south side of the house.

The flat driveway has room to park three cars and there is space in the garage for a car or boat as well as plenty of storage for all your beach & surf gear. There is also lots of additional storage space beneath the house.

Outside a wooden staircase descends through a landscaped, terraced garden planted with low-maintenance, low-water natives. Torquay Surf Beach is a 20-minute walk or short bicycle ride along Spring Creek; Torquay P6 College, Saint Therese Catholic Primary School, Torquay Early Learning Centre, and Torquay Kindergarten are all within easy walking distance.

This well-located home in Torquay’s sought-after Church estate is full of surprises – there is always sunlight when you want it, shade when you need it and delightful views from every aspect!
