A Home with a Conscience.

I'm not going to enter into a political commentary about carbon pricing or anything like that but I think we've probably all noticed how expensive electricity has gotten so having a home that isn't totally reliant on "the grid" is quite appealing to me. Because I am a tightarse. I would be pretty sure this next place wasn't dictated to by electricity pricing but rather the more noble consideration of environmental sustainability. And according to the listing, they've pulled out all the stops in order to lessen their environmental footprint. Yet they've still managed to present a very luxurious abode. 

25 Hopetoun Avenue, Vaucluse NSW

Smary superlatives aside, this place really is quite stunning as well as incredibly clever. I would love this kind of environmental technology in my house. 70% energy savings/reduction in footprint is not to be sniffed at.

Do please call the lovely people over at Agency by Alison Coopes if you're interested.


  1. Apparently its only an archived listing with the agent now. A shame, because I would have liked to see more.

  2. Fixed! For now anyway. She periodically removes and then relists her stuff in order to appear towards the top of the search listings. The only thing that's on the listing that's not here is the video.

    1. Great house - one problem that I see is that the bathroom floor is going to be like an ice rink when it gets wet!!! Lots of rug/towel washing and drying.
