Individual new home of 4000 sq ft currently under construction, set in 1.5 acres.
A stylish new home on a site of approximately 1.5 acres of pasture land fronting a country lane, with fields beyond.
The property under construction is an eco- home extending to an internal floor area of approximately 3999 square feet, all on the ground floor.
This home is one of only two being separately constructed and has been designed specifically in order to achieve maximum sustainability. There are substantial insulation levels and underfloor heating and radiators. There is provision for hot water via solar panels to the green roof and an air source heat pump. Electrical requirements will primarily be sourced from a roof photovoltaic system with a back up off grid storage system and there will be a home charging point for an electric car.
Proposed materials, in addition to the green living roof, include stone and white rendered walls with dark grey aluminium triple glazed windows and matching extruded aluminium rainwater goods, all of a simple and modern design.
At the entrance electric gates set in stone pillars will lead to the driveway running to the front of the property and to a double garage. A PC allowance of £75,000 is being made by the builder for the entrance hall flooring, tiling to areas such as bathrooms and for the kitchen, all of which the purchaser is able to have input into the design and supply (subject to negotiation).
Room proportions are particularly generous (please see floorplans). The living space includes a kitchen of over 8 meters x 5 meters with double doors into a winter garden and doors out to the gardens, an adjoining family room and to other side a more formal dining room and separate drawing room. There is also a good sized boot/utility room and cloakroom. A plant room houses a managed hub with wiring installed for data in every room.
To the other end of the property are planned to be 5/6 bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The windows to the rear of the property are predominantly west facing and generous in size, some with heights of over 4 meters and widths over 3 meters allowing huge amounts of light into the property.
The gardens lie on the west side of the property and adjoin pasture land.
Please note measurements have been taken off drawings.

The idea of building your own house without getting your hands dirty! Its a one-off, and you can choose your own fittings, kitchen, bathrooms and so on. Plus its a beautiful setting.Catherine Anderson
