Solar-powered pool means perfect water temperature for swimming all year round.

An award-wining, eco-friendly home offering the best of the Bellarine coast is now for sale.

The modern coastal home packed with energy-saving features is at 91 Arrigo Drive, Wallington, a rural township near Geelong.

Wallington’s surrounding suburbs are Leopold, Curlewis, Ocean Grove and Marcus Hill. Some of Victoria’s best beaches are only a quick drive away.

Modern design incorporates high-performance solar technology.

Eco-friendly home

The stylish home blends the best of the country and the coast across a tranquil 2.5 hectares with landscaped gardens.

But this is not your typical dark and dank country property. There’s no narrow hallway flanked by tiny rooms. Instead the entire home is light-filled and open. Sunshine fills every space.

Passive design and technology combine for ideal living.

Energy-saving home design

The sprawling design has north facing living zones all with a connection to the external pool and alfresco dining. Cross ventilation allows the home to breathe.

There’s a home theatre, rumpus room and open-plan living and dining space that looks out to the solar-powered pool via full-height windows.

The private main bedroom suite has a walk-in wardrobe, complete ensuite and sliding doors that open to the pool and backyard.

Four further bedrooms, including one for guests, a study nook, home office, large laundry and three-door garage complete the home.

Polished concrete flooring reduces energy consumption for heating and cooling. Passive design utilises the sun to maintain comfortable temperatures inside. Large low-energy ceiling fans circulate the air to minimise heating and cooling needs.

A solar battery powers the house throughout the night.

Solar-powered pool

An extensive solar panel system generates energy from the sun. A solar battery stores solar energy to provide free power if when the sun is not shining. Power bills are slashed.

The Wallington home is a 10-minute drive to the beautiful Ocean Grove beach. Barwon Heads, Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff are also nearby.

The home won Pivot Homes an HIA Award the year it was built. It’s modern rural living at its best and most sustainable. It’s being sold privately with a $2.5 million price guide.
