Embrace innovation, sustainability and live differently in White Gum Valley

21 Sep 2017

Home buyers who are looking for a unique opportunity to embrace sustainable living in an innovative and modern home need look no further than LandCorp's Gen Y demonstration homes project.

As a new housing model, the one bedroom, one bathroom homes provide a practical demonstration of an affordable living environment for Gen Y'ers and future generations to come.

Located in the award winning WGV development in White Gum Valley, the two remaining homes are available priced at $370,000 and $375,000. These homes received the AIA Multi Unit Architecture Award and Sustainability Award in 2017.

LandCorp's Chief Executive Frank Marra said the demonstration homes showcase innovative design for flexible infill housing and sustainable living.

"The Gen Y housing project is a practical demonstration of sustainable, flexible and cost effective dwellings to suit 21st century living."

"We believe these homes are ideal for young West Australians who would like to enter the housing market and are looking for a home that stands out from the crowd while being low impact on the environment."

"Although compact, the increased density is not at the expense of liveability for home-owners or neighbours. Each home has private and communal external areas, clever storage, generous ceiling heights, and a high thermal efficiency."

As well as incorporating a clever design that maximises the use of available space and meets the needs of Gen Y buyers, the homes integrate solar passive design principles to ensure natural light and cross ventilation to each apartment and the use of sustainable materials provide excellent thermal mass properties.

The homes have been accredited with a 'Gold Medal' level Life Cycle Analysis by ETool.

Landscape design uses recycled materials and water-wise planting with shared recycled brick planters for herbs and edible plants. Sustainable, liveable and durable, the design and innovation of these properties is second to none.

"Homebuyers who value the importance of sustainable design, without compromising liveability should definitely consider the Gen Y demonstration project." Mr Marra said.

"With only two of the three homes still available this is truly a unique opportunity to join the vibrant and growing White Gum Valley community."

White Gum Valley is WA's first One Planet Community. It will demonstrate the very best in modern, sustainable design and create a community where it is easy and affordable for people to live in a way that makes smart use of the earth's resources.
