Australia, Queensland, Cooran, $425,000
Could you live with this view? A million dollar view that can never be built out? And be self sufficient to boot? Mon Abri offers electricity, water, and food self sufficiency and you could potentially live there at almost zero cost.
Great entertainer too, Mon Abri also boasts a large deck out to the mountain views and a pizza oven.
Sitting on 1.5 acres of fertile soil, winner of the 2007 Glossy Award for Resource Saving and featured several times for Sustainable House Day events, our passive solar house needs zero heating and cooling. The solar hot water is so efficient it has never needed boosting, and the PVs on the roof generate five times as much energy as we consume, making us some $1800 a year profit. We are not connected to town water and sewerage and rely on 47,000 L of stored rainwater, which has never run out, not even in the 2014 drought.
Just 30 minutes from Noosa, Cooran is close to all amenities and is Noosa shire's best kept secret.

Open plan living with country kitchen complete with wood burning AGA stove
Four generous bedrooms
Stylish country bathroom with 2 person corner bath, bidet, and water efficient shower
