Beaufort 26 Becker Street
The Recyclable House
Privately nestled away in a quiet cul de sac with no passing traffic, we are pleased to present this "one of a kind" engineer designed family home, which is a cutting edge example of design and construction for recyclability and sustainability.
The house is a perfectly proportioned, environmentally efficient modern family home, with the convenience of two detached garden studio rooms which makes it perfect for working from home, or for entertaining in the private garden.
Featuring in many Australian and International magazines, news articles, radio and television, The Recyclable House has made quite a name for itself, and for all the right reasons! A quick web search for "The Recyclable House" and you will find loads of information about its Cradle to Cradle design philosophy, eco-friendly construction and solar passive design.
Although the components of the home are either biologically or technologically recyclable, it has been built to withstand the test of time, is of exceptionally high quality and will outlast the average Australian home. It is also important to note, although some of the house has been constructed with materials which are RECYCLED, it has been predominately built using NEW materials which are RECYCLABLE.
The property is conveniently located just 650m from the Beaufort train station which makes commuting to the city a breeze. Also within walking distance to local produce store, Olympic sized swimming pool, childcare facilities, P-12 school, healthcare providers, hospital, large supermarket, library and much more for you to discover! It's a quick drive to local state parks with waterfalls, bushwalks and camping and a convenient day trip to the Grampians National Park.
