You will notice it is a two bedroom currently, the 3m wide front and back patio areas allow you to enclose to give you more living space, if you want a larger office, media room, outdoor patio enclosed, undercover parking well the sky is the limit

The solar system is a complete off grid system, To be installed -24 mono-crystal panels coupled up into a 24 volt system, comes down to a power box with a large separation switch and secondary switches from the panels . This is connected to a 5 kilo watt Victron Connect inverter the battery is a 15 kw ( the whole house at its maximum is approx
4 kilo watt) there is a 6000 watt diesel generator connected to the system to kick in when the battery gets to a certain voltage ( when it rains or cloudy weather for a prolong period , approx 4 days of no sunshine ) the Gen set should be used once or twice a year, it would be practice to start it up every 7/8 weeks for approx 20/30 minutes just to keep the diesel motor ticking over. The battery has a 10 year warranty the inverter was put in new May 2020 has a 5 year warranty. The Gen set holds 20 litres of diesel fuel, electric start connected. Hot water system is a 200L,set on a timer to use day light hours best.

This is the lifestyle people are wanting more of. We are surrounded by a marine park water way of national significance. Fresh air no pollution from traffic, natural spring water from Stradbroke. Community vibe you will notice and love.
