GUIDE PRICE £700,000 – £725,000
Set in a private, gated, award winning development, this family house is truly remarkable and has been constructed to a very high standard. The designers have focused on the flow through the house, ensuring that the family can enjoy socialising together and separately easily. The house itself is exceptionally well insulated and utilises materials designed to maximise the energy efficiency of the house. It incorporates underfloor heating throughout, in conjunction with an air source heat pump. In combination with the wood burning stove in the lounge and the local thermostatic controls in each main room and the solar panels, it is unsurprising that it achieves a ‘B’ rating for its energy performance certificate, in fact only missing out an ‘A’ by a few points. What this means to you in practical terms, is the win-win of having a dust-free, warm and cosy house 24/7 all year round with energy bills of less than £100 per month. For a house of this size, which has large open spaces and ceilings that are above the heights you would expect for a modern build, that is truly excellent.
In summary, this is a beautiful family home that is designed to allow for the whole family to live and grow together, in an environment that is not only cosy, controlled and safe, but also highly energy and cost efficient.
The Front of the House
The house is accessed from the private driveway that runs through the development from the gated entrance. There is a low wall with railings that defines the border with the road and a driveway for three cars before the garage doors. There is a patio area that leads to the brick built storm porch.

There is a shed on a concrete base and a log storage facility. There is access to the front from two sides through lockable gates.
