Eco-friendly, Large Straw Bale Home in a Peaceful Location
The birdlife is incredible and you will feel at one with nature. Mature gums are scattered over the landscape, the native flora and fauna are spectacular.

"Birribri" is an architecturally designed, eco-friendly, family home of straw bale construction. Lance Kairl, a leader in straw bale home construction, was heavily involved in this build.

The home is privately situated at the end of a long driveway on 10.2ha (25acres) and positioned to allow stunning views over the valley and beyond from every window.

With all the features carefully incorporated into this design, the home was built to reduce it's ecological footprint, be energy efficient and to take full advantage of all nature can offer. With a central atrium, light floods through the whole home. The design and placement of the western red cedar windows allows excellent cross flow ventilation.

Solar hot water, high grade insulation and 10 solar panels have been installed, (electricity is connected so panels feed to the grid).

From the antique solid timber, stained glass front door, the impressive entrance hallway flows in two directions. One leads to the four spacious bedrooms and the other leads to the two living areas. The formal living room has two sets of French doors leading onto the verandah with amazing views. The cosy open fire adds to the ambience of this room as do the antique cedar bookcases. The adjoining open plan family/meals area has a combustion heater and split system for your added comfort. The bay window seat is the perfect spot to relax or reflect. The kitchen is also included in this large open space family area. It has a gas cooktop, wall oven, dishwasher, plenty of storage and bench space. This is the perfect living space to share with family.

The master bedroom has a huge sparkling en-suite with a double sized shower and bidet, and the walk-in robe has loads of space. Bedrooms two and three have built in robes and bedroom four is currently utilised as a studio/craft room and has plumbing installed. The large family bathroom that also has loads of storage, has been sensibly designed as a two way bathroom. It can be easily accessed from the rear entrance of the home that is a great feature for a rural property.

Solid timber doors, wide skirtings, coved cornices, 3m ceilings security system, an aerobic waste system, rainwater tanks and three seasonal dams are just some of the other wonderful features of this property.

The adjoining carport has parking for two vehicles.

A large 12m x9m shed with concrete flooring and power, is also a bonus.
