A lovely light, airy 4 bedroom detached house of more individual design standing in large, beautifully landscaped gardens and offering well laid out accommodation that has been updated and improved in recent years with a great care taken to significantly improve the thermal efficiency of the property while aiming to reduce the carbon footprint.
This is one of small number of similarly designed family houses that were built in the mid 1970’s by a local building firm and in almost every case the houses here have large gardens but this garden is exceptional and one of the largest of all.
In recent years the property has been updated and improved with the owners having taken great care to increase the energy efficiency of the property and so reduce running costs. Photovoltaic solar panels have been installed together with a high efficiency boiler. In addition there is cavity wall insulation, additional loft insulation, uPVC double glazing which combine to produce an energy efficiency rating of B-83, to put that into perspective a typical house of this age is rated at around E-40, less than half as efficient.
As well as the obvious benefit of free electricity the solar panels which are owned outright by the present owners produce a worthwhile, tax free, index linked income derived from the unused energy that is automatically returned to the national grid.
The accommodation is very well presented and the gardens are just as well kept having been professional landscaped with a superb terrace from which pathways meander through various ‘rooms’ of the garden with shaped beds that are planted with a variety of specimen shrubs and buses with the pathways eventually arriving at a kitchen garden area complete with raised bed planters.
