Gorgeous Lifestyle Property on Forth River
This property will appeal to somebody looking for a lifestyle change to a quiet riverside location close to the country village community of Forth in N.W. Tasmania.
Located on the side of the Forth River, this 1ha property in the fertile Forth Valley offers a sustainable lifestyle which includes a large and fenced vegetable garden, to make the most of “home grown’, together with a variety of fruit including pear and apple trees, nut trees, Chinese gooseberry, and Fig. On site composting, worm farm, mulching and rainwater harvesting all add to an environmentally beneficial lifestyle.
The original farm cottage (circa early 1920’s) has been extensively remodelled and extended so that the library, open plan living area, office and master bedroom suite make use of the north facing aspect to maximise the effectiveness of passive solar heating, thereby reducing its environmental footprint.
Hydronic slab heating is provided over 150sqm throughout the living / dining / kitchen area, master bedroom suite, mud room and linking walkways. Augmenting this is a Jotul wood fire in the open plan living area and an Eco-smart fire between the living room and library, creating the ideal atmosphere for relaxation.
Environmental objectives are further pursued through double glazing and insulation throughout, together with the provision of:
• An 8.5kw roof top solar and 10 kw/Hr battery storage system
• On-site rainwater capture and storage of 65,000 litres for the domestic supply
• A mini wastewater treatment system (Envirocycle) producing high water quality output which is discharged on-site through an underground drip disposal system
• A roof-top solar hot water system for the domestic hot water, with heat pump boost
The overall house design has been seamlessly integrated into the local environment through the use of bifold and French doors, decks and patios that allow you to realize the stunning views the Valley has to offer.
