Your opportunity to own a market leading home in one of Brisbane’s best suburbs is here.  Nestled high in the hills of Auchenflower this a stunningly modern home has achieved the highest accolade of performance achievable in a residential home.

“The goal was to build a home that presented like a luxury home with all of the modern features yet was embedded with layer upon layer of sustainability considerations,” explains Solaire’s Director, Harley Weston.

Through innovative design, this energy efficient and sustainably manufactured home highlights the possibilities on offer by using the latest design techniques and components which culminate in a spectacular product. Vanquish is Australia’s largest architectural home with a ‘Passive House’ certification, meaning that this stunning 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom 458sqm house has been certified to an international standard, having the highest possible level of comfort and air quality. Vanquish is one of only 38 homes of this standard to be built in a sub-tropical environment anywhere in the world.

Vanquish boasts uninterrupted views of Brisbane’s cityscape from all three levels of the property.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, the gorgeous home also offers uninterrupted city views from all three levels of the property. Additionally, the home features another Solaire classic: a private 12-metre freshwater pool. This fresh water system is in place to align with the chemical-free initiative of the property and surrounding environment.

Vanquish also features a Solaire signature; a 12-metre freshwater pool to align with Solaire’s chemical-free initiative.

To achieve Vanquish’s ‘Passive House’ certification, the home features a number of components which keep the internal air temperature stable and the air quality clean. Using triple glazed doors and windows throughout, in addition to an airtight membrane, hyper-effective insulation and high performance ventilation, Solaire have aimed at accomplishing something never seen in Brisbane previously. Vanquish’s energy recovery ventilation system is designed to filter the incoming air from pollutants such as dust, bushfire smoke, soot, and even pollen, to ensure the highest quality of clean air.

The home offers a glimpse of future design methodologies and the components needed to beat the scorching summer days in Brisbane, without compromising on residential amenity or aesthetics.

No expense has been spared across the property, with Vanquish also boasting 28kWh of battery storage, a 10.5kW solar array, and a ‘Control4’ smart home automation system for security, home access, lighting, TV’s and music. 

This pivotal initiative is the result of over 2 years’ worth of research and building industry development to create the most cost effective and scalable solution for sustainable housing in Australia. Vanquish features sustainably manufactured Italian porcelain tiles and benchtops, handcrafted tapware by Australian manufacturer Sussex Tap, the highest level of energy efficient LED lighting, and an internal staircase that homes a miniature garden underneath.

“The goal was to build a home that presented like a luxury home with all of the modern features yet was embedded with layer upon layer of sustainability considerations, healthy living options and the highest level of building performance the world has to offer,” explains Harley Weston, Director of Solarie Properties

You will also never pay a power bill again as Vanquish was designed to be a net zero energy property. With the use of solar power in conjunction with a Redback battery storage system, real time power metrics, and energy optimization the property has the capacity to run for days without power grid connection. Solaire’s own Green Switch technology is also featured in the property, allowing the house to be shut down when unoccupied at just the tap of a button.

Vanquish by Solaire Properties and Joe Adsett, highlights some exciting trends that we will begin to see introduced into Queensland properties throughout the coming years including futureproofing for multigenerational living, maximizing natural cross-ventilation and energy efficiency while providing an incredibly spacious, open-plan home in lieu with the modern Brisbane lifestyle.
