PASSIVE heating and cooling, hi-tech solar systems, and a chook run - is this the most eco-friendly property on the Orange market today?
Designed by Nicholas Graham and Associates and built in 2006, 472 The Escort Way is situated only a few minutes from the CBD, and will be auctioned in the coming weeks.
This architectural masterpiece was built with the concept of sustainable living front and centre. The home is designed for passive heating and cooling, with double-glazed windows complete with argon-filled, low E film on all windows and doors.
