Escape the city and potentially halve your electricity bill in this passive solar design home under an hour’s drive from Canberra.

Situated on 17 acres with amazing views out over the Yass Valley, the 54m2 straw bale home was professionally built in just the last five years.

The open plan designed home boasts one bedroom, but could readily be transformed into two or three bedrooms if required.

The eco friendly house possesses modern features including under floor heating in the open kitchen and lounge room and double glazed windows throughout.

The passive solar design uses the sun’s energy for the heating and cooling of the home, but gas and electricity is also available where necessary.

The 17 acres of fertile Yass Valley soil further strengthens the environmental sustainability of this property, with vast potential to produce home grown fruit and vegetables. Or simply make use of the small cattle yards, good fencing and dam to run a few cows.

The opportunities are plentiful and when you’re so close to Yass (12 mins) and Canberra (57 mins), you really can’t go too wrong with this property.
