Eco-friendly living


In popular Kaleen, this three-bedroom home is the stuff of eco-conscious dreams. With an EER of 6.0, 38 Bellinger Crescent boasts a 1.6KW solar system, plus another 2.1Kw system with battery storage.

“It is an eco-friendly solar-passive home,” says LJ Hooker Kaleen franchise owner and sales manager, Tim Russell.

“It’s totally unique and in a magnificent position.”

North facing and with double-glazed windows, the home also includes a pond, wetland-style gardens and 22,000L water tanks, as well as an evacuated tube solar hot water system. The gardens also boast garden beds filled with vegetables and herbs as well as olive, lemon, lime and hazelnut trees.

Inside, the home’s eco-friendly credentials continue, with thermal mass slate flooring, honeycomb blinds and an awning that extends over the front courtyard space. An alfresco deck is perfect for entertaining in the afternoons and evenings, as is the renovated kitchen with gas cooking and wine fridge. Comfort is assured year-round with ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling, and the home also includes high-speed internet and video doors with keyless entry.

Each of the three bedrooms include built-in robes, while the main bathroom is a calming haven with green tiling and a Japanese soaking tub. The home’s unique features are evident in the living space, with vaulted ceilings and a feature bookcase display.

Russell says this home would be ideal for “entry level buyers who are looking to secure a home in Kaleen, and those looking for a long-term future-proof property”.

“This part of Kaleen was built a little later than the rest of suburb,” he says. “There are two popular schools just a short stroll away.”
