The floor in the kitchen is Timaru blue stone and has been designed to soak up heat from sunlight in winter and release it during the day for passive productivity.
The land in front of the property on the lakefront is council reserve and there are no neighbours who have visibility of the property and so it is very private. Alec Robins Road is a quiet country lane with no through access.
