A recently completed, award winning two storey residence built in a prairie house style. nestling on a generous plot of approximately 3.8 acres.
A magnificent "Grand Design" style home that was awarded with "Specifi Project of The Year 2019"
Belvoir Vue from the outset was conceived as being modern, sustainable, sympathetic to its surroundings and environmentally efficient and friendly.
The steel frame design allows for large open spans within the property, the careful steel design, allows extensive areas of glazing to deliver solar gain in winter and the canopies providing solar shading in the summer periods.
The steel frame has enabled large balconies to be incorporated within the design enabling the inside space to flow into the external south facing environment overlooking the natural landscape and also act as a brie soleil .
Beam and block floors have enabled underfloor heating and screed throughout, coupled with increased 150mm cavity wall, and 250mm roof insulation, provides thermal mass for a constant temperature. Each room is independently controlled both in the room and via a smartphone.
The property is not connected to the gas network. Air source heat pumps were chosen for hot water and heating and provides a very efficient solution. A solar panel system is discreetly hidden behind the roof parapet. The heating system is also enhanced by a 21 kw wood burner centrally located within the lounge.
Belvoir Vue nestles near mature trees and sensitive wildlife, both of which were considered from the outset with sympathetic solutions being integrated into the design process.
The building is served by an on site active sewage treatment system. A rainwater storage tank of 6,000 litre capacity has been incorporated and feeds grey water to 2 external taps in the garden and the car port. Excess water from both systems feed into a pond and then off into the local water course.
