Community and Sustainability
A unique opportunity to rent a brand-new family home in a nearly completed ecovillage within the desirable town of Denmark on Western Australia’s beautiful south coast. Completion in late August.
The 9-star energy-rated solar passive designed 130m2 duplexed 2 storey home is compact and comfortable. Fully self-contained downstairs with kitchen, living area, and toilet/shower, laundry, main bedroom and second bedroom or potential office. Up-stairs with two bedrooms, a sitting area and second toilet/shower.
Hempcrete walls, energy efficient heat pump hot water and connection to an integrated 49kW solar power generation with battery backup, plus rainwater and greywater systems, attest to its sustainability. Energy costs in the home may be half that of conventional houses.
The information age is not neglected with reticulated nbn/phone, TV and ethernet connections, with the potential for shared cost discounting.
There is a north-facing courtyard, separate storage areas, and access to future gardens and orchard. Occupancy comes with use of a 118m2 common house with a large kitchen/dining area, entertaining theatre and spare room with adjacent accessible toilet/shower. Plus, a workshop and internal kids areas.
All this and the opportunity to be part of a close-knit co-housing community ranging in age from 4 months to 80 years old, with a strong sustainability ethos. The DecoHousing Denmark Group, a local initiative, formed its own development company to build 12 state-of-the-art affordable sustainable housing units of both 2 and 3-4 bedrooms. This $4.9 million Denmark co-housing project is just 250 meters from the centre of town.
The home calls out for a family to love and enjoy it. A 12-month lease can be negotiated. And there is the opportunity to rent, try and buy, and deepen your commitment to this rich way of living.
