About our Home

The Spring Hill “Enviro-Cottage” is one of the greenest homes in the country (see www.envirocottage.com.au). It is less than a 1km leisurely stroll to the bustling city centre of Brisbane or the pumping contemporary nightlife of Fortitude Valley and Chinatown or the tourist drawcards and theatre district of Southbank. The home has featured on TV and in newspapers and in many home and lifestyle and enviro-magazines. The house proves that the resort-style contemporary lifestyle often demanded, does not have to be at the expense of our at risk environment. This is your chance to live the life of luxury, and see how sustainability feels and what it looks like, while savouring the delights of Australia’s most dynamic and growing city and within an easy drive to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
The house is on two levels and includes a “solar pod” in the back yard separated by an open grassed courtyard. The luxurious and stunning master suite with king bed and beautiful ensuite is in the “solar pod” above the lounge and TV/media area. The main house has three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and dining (under a glass ceiling to allow you to dine under the stars!) and garage/laundry. All appliances are water and energy efficient, the lights are all LEDs. There is also a stunning and intimate eco-pool for relaxing in on those steamy Brisbane summer nights. The library shelves are packed with travel books, contemporary novels and family games.
