Best House in Derby
A rare opportunity to own the best house in Derby.
A modern, light-filled, warm and spacious 3 bedroom house constructed from recycled timbers, with double-glazed windows throughout, and super insulating straw bale exterior walls, this stunning house is a one-off that provides the best of modern living with sustainable building design.
Renowned as the warmest and most light-filled house in Derby the double-glazed floor-to-ceiling windows on the north side provide electricity-free heating as the sun's rays heat the polished concrete slab, keeping the house warm day and night. Fully adjustable custom-made Luxaflex honeycomb blinds provide temperature control and complete privacy. Even on the coldest winter days, the indoor temperature stays around 18C. If you need a bit of extra warmth, a reverse-cycle heat pump has been installed for additional comfort.
Three double bedrooms provide plenty of space, with the two main bedrooms having ample floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes, and floor-to-ceiling windows on the north side.
The kitchen features stainless steel benches and work spaces, energy energy-efficient induction cooktop, an electric oven, a dishwasher and large cupboards and storage drawers.
The open plan living area gives you unrivalled views over the village and panoramic views to the Krushka's and Blue Tier forests, and a flexible private living area that easily transforms into a low-fuss entertaining area extending onto the recycled hardwood timber deck.
The striking front deck is constructed from recycled bridge timbers, providing a private outdoor living space with uninterrupted views encompassing Derby Lake and the iconic Floating Sauna to Trouty and Krushka's forests. Perfect for a sunset drink and BBQ after enjoying a day on the trails.
Set on a third of an acre of land backing onto bush you can make use of the existing productive vegetable garden area and fruit trees, or let the low-maintenance lawn areas complement the native trees and rainforest plants that have been nurtured to create habitat for wildlife.
A large steel, wood-clad lockable garage complements the aesthetic of the house and deck, and can be used to store your vehicle, as a work shed and bike lock up. A second lockable wood clad shed is perfect for storing bike overflow, tools or other outdoor adventure toys.
A dedicated 24,000L water tank fed by the roof provides extra peace of mind as an additional water source to supplement the mains water connected to the house.
With bush surrounds, secure bike storage, bike wash facilities and two outside e-bike charging stations this modern and sustainably designed strawbale house is a perfect family home, a regional Tasmania work-from-home retreat or an accommodation investment.
Located a few hundred metres from Derby's Main Street shops, pub and restaurants, the mountain bike trails, the family-friendly pump track and Derby Lake's floating sauna, this house has it all.
Sustainability, comfort and ease of living are at the heart of the best house in Derby. You can make it your eco-retreat, a source of reliable rental and short-stay revenue, or a balance of both.
