Reducing our individual carbon footprint has become front of mind for purchasers when searching for the perfect place to live. 

A dwelling with excellent environmental credentials, such as the use of solar panels and rainwater tanks, is now considered just as important as close proximity to parks, public transport and schools.

Melbourne property developer, Steller, has vowed to build developments from now and into the future with a commitment of an additional star rating on top of the industry standard, which will see a raft of sustainable development initiatives incorporated in each project.

‘Jersey Apartments’ in the highly-sought after south-eastern suburb of Carnegie is the latest Steller development to exceed expectations when it comes to clean, green living.

Spread over four levels, and with just 39 apartments in the entire complex, the focus is not only on constructing a luxurious, and stylish place to live, but a home residents will feel proud to call their own.

It comes with a solar panel system, rain water tanks utilising recycled water, energy-saving down lights, and an architectural design that will allow daylight to naturally spread throughout the apartments, reducing the need for electricity.

The toilet water is also recycled, and the windows are double-glazed; just a few of the green initiatives to be implemented throughout.

“It’s saving the consumer approximately 25 per cent on their energy costs,” explains Steller’s James Cirelli.

“We get so many enquiries from interested owner-occupiers asking about our green construction methods.”

As for the apartments themselves, buyers have the choice of a dwelling with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, or three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The majority of interested purchasers already live in the area, and are looking to downsize to a less-fuss, low-maintenance way of life, but still want a bit more space to stretch out, which is why there are no one bedroom apartments on offer.

“The majority of the demand we find is from the area itself, we get a lot of locals who want a large two-bedroom apartment, or the space of a an oversized three-bedroom, which has resulted in the amalgamation of apartments to accommodate for the growing demand of oversized accommodation ” Mr Cirelli says.  

The size of the dwellings is another point-of-difference, each apartment is larger than the average dwelling size, measuring around 80 square metres.

The open-plan living, kitchen and dining areas connect through to private balconies and courtyards, creating the ideal entertainment space.

Jersey Apartments will be constructed to take advantage of the northern, eastern and western outlooks, which will see natural sunlight stream through the extra height windows.

Keeping in theme with creating an effortless lifestyle, there are no car-stackers to be found, rather residents will have access to simple, uncomplicated basement car parking.

This will be the ideal place to leave your car as all of the essentials are in walking distance: the Koornang Road strip of shops, along with public transport options connecting you through to the CBD and surrounding suburbs, as well as a number of schools are all nearby.
