Off-Grid Farm: Where Country, Coastal and Off-Grid Living Meet. 

What do you get when you cross a picturesque rural, off-grid living with a beautifully designed home?

You get Off-Grid Farm Paraparap.

Built by Hamlan Homes for Liz, George and their 3 kids, the stunning homestead is situated in the small farming community of Paraparap. Surprisingly close to the Surf Coast holiday hotspots of Torquay, Bells Beach and Anglesea, the property lends itself perfectly to a combination of rural and coastal living.

However, the rural location certainly brought about some challenges - the biggest of which gave the home its namesake and defining feature. Off-Grid Farm is not connected to mains power or water. Instead it generates power through solar panels, while water is handled by two catchment tanks and a dam.

Also a challenge, and indeed a threat to many others living in rural areas, was the high Bushfire Attack Level (BAL). This was overcome through a combination of special cladding and our double-glazed windows and doors, and now Liz and George are as prepared and safe as they possibly can be for the threat of bushfires.

As well as assisting Liz and George overcome these hurdles, Hamlan Homes were able to help create a home that is nothing short of extraordinary. Arguably the standout feature of which is the large pool and Alfresco dining area, which opens up to the home via our double glazed aluminium bifold windows and large sliding doors - the perfect setting for those summer dinners and outdoor entertaining. 

We wish Liz, George and the kids many happy years in their very enviable off-grid lifestyle.
