Contempora: ry Tokai home uses rainwater and solar energy
This owner-designed, contemporary home has been built in peaceful Tokai with eco-sensitive energy-saving and water-conserving measures to enable the owners to live almost off the grid.
Water is channelled from the purpose-designed roof and gutter system into rainwater tanks from where it is filtered, solar-heated and distributed to the entire property.
Double glazing and insulated walls and roof ensure year-round comfort.
The accommodation consists of three spacious bedrooms each with its own generous en suite. The master bedroom opens on to the deck, complete with a spa bath and views of the surrounding mountains.
A generous lounge flows seamlessly into the dining area next to the elegant kitchen with separate scullery/laundry. With up-to-date finishes all round and open rafters, the home has an airy, welcoming feel.
The lounge also opens on to the entertainment deck with retractable cover and a spa bath. Enjoy the views of the surrounding Cape mountains from this private entertainment space.
The garden is easily managed and irrigated by a specialised grey-water system, keeping it green all year round.
The double garage houses the rainwater storage tanks and solar control system and leads directly into the foyer.
The driveway can accommodate at least two more vehicles and the property is right opposite a lifestyle centre which offers residents use of the gym and swimming pool.
Stonehurst Mountain Estate has state-of-the-art 24-hour access controlled security, space for nature walks and a modern lifestyle centre.
A truly eco-sensitive home for buyers looking to the future and wanting to lead a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
