Woolston Residence

This home is a shining example of how good design doesn’t have to cost more.
Master builder, Geoff Woolston, has built this home with meticulous care.  Here is a small list of the biggest features of this clever, affordable home.

  • Very well insulated passive solar design.  (ie. cool in summer, warm in winter, no air-conditioning necessary.)
  • Courtyard design floods the living area with winter sun.
  • Large eaves shade the home from summer sun.
  • Every bedroom and living room has an outlook. (rather than just facing a fence.)
  • 3m wide side access for a boat or caravan.
  • Feature porch/entry with lots of glass and light.
  • High ceilings to the living room with maximum width sliding glass doors.
  • Feature curved passage from entry to living room.
  • Compact, easy care wet areas.
  • Elegant street appeal.
  • Large double garage with extra storage space.
  • Large courtyard for outdoor entertaining.
  • Private garden space off master bedroom.
  • Large multipurpose room facing the street with its own patio.  (possibly media room, home office, guest room, etc…)
