Wake up relaxed and happy in this light-filled two-bedroom single-story designer family home, built in 2011. The most enviable block of land in Congo has a Northern sunny aspect, warming the open-planned living areas. Thoughtfully designed by an artist-architect to maximize comfort and creativity. High set to capture fantastic panorama views: enjoy coffee on the deck watching the fish jump in beautiful Congo Creek. Soaring high ceilings give an expansive feeling of space. Queensland spotted gum timber flooring throughout, with timber ceilings and walls. Your new home features one large master bedroom that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Smaller second bedroom or office facing north with a great view of the creek. Third bedroom optional in the backyard studio. In the open-plan design, the kitchen faces the main living spaces, meaning the whole family stays connected throughout the day. It features a butler’s pantry and gas stove. Stay cozy with a combustion wood heater and heat bank of full thickness mudbricks. Budget conscious? This is a low-cost sustainable house with solar hot water. 259-litre electric booster, dry composting toilet, and grey water treatment on site. 33,000 litres of water under the house and 1,100 in a tank at the rear of the property. A sprawling flower, fruit tree, herb and vegetable garden surrounds the house. The owner’s passion for native gardens with her great use of regional indigenous plants is evident in the back garden. Native grasses and ground covers abound with many flowering shrubs attracting a variety of species of birds and other wildlife. The crowning majesty of the back are the mature Casuarina glaucas which create a real forest effect as well as moderating temperature and wind from the south. An absolute pleasure is to lie out on a day bed under the trees and drift off listening to the soft hush of the wind in the trees. Also in the backyard, you’ll find a one-bedroom separate studio (great for teens/artists/mancave/guests) with room for a double bed. There’s a garden shed and a caravan, which is used as dry storage. Enjoy fresh eggs daily with help from the large chook pen enclosure. Congo offers prime South Coast wildlife and access to nature. Swim, fish and snorkel just across the road. You can hear the (usually empty) surf beach from the property: it’s minutes walk away. Don’t miss the chance to live in Australia’s world-class nature in unbeatable comfort and style!
