He said the houseFrom sustainable such as double glazing, windows and concrete floors.
He said realestate.com.au: “It’s no ordinary home, but it ticks so many boxes.”
“It’s bringing in over $30,000 a year, so that’s a great return and people are always asking for it.”
“Last year it was busy almost every weekend all year round.
“In addition, it is not only sustainable, but also cost-effective due to its 7-star ratingrating but once you enter the place it is stunning.
“It’s opulent and luxurious and it’s just a beautiful feeling.”
Thehouse is one of three small houses by the design and build company Small Change.
So said the company’s CEO, Sally Willswere developed to show how a small footprint can work and eventually trigger a change in Victoria’s planning rules.
Referring to the choice of Norlane as the location, she said: “It just seemed like an ideal place to build a one bedroom apartment that could be used for older people downsizing or alternatively for younger people who are buy their first home.”
“There are a lot of people, especially young people, who really like living in apartments, but want a little more land, not necessarily a bigger house.”
She said those who stayed in the house — which is where she stayed to see how it worked — were people contemplating downsizing.
“Honestly, you tell people ‘I built a 60-square-foot house,’ and they don’t understand what that could look like until you see it and realize it’s almost a two-story building, so it actually feels pretty big it does.” “It doesn’t feel like a tiny apartment.”
The unique home has been listed with a price guide of £210,000 to £225,000.
