WOODLANDS EDGE – PHASE 1
18 Spectacular new energy efficient homes in a spacious parkland setting
Now all Sold; Phase-2 gets underway towards the end of 2017
These spacious and well-appointed three and four bedroom new solar homes have been built to the highest standards, and have been designed and specified to cost no more than an average of £1 per day (at 2016 energy prices) for space heating, hot water, and lighting.
Set in an amazing 12-acre site adjacent to Lincolnshire Showground, and backed by a mature 5-acre private wood, all of these properties enjoy an uninterrupted view across small lakes set in landscaped parkland, bounded by mature natural hedgerows.
These new homes are being sold on a 999-year lease which provides private ownership of the individual properties and their 18-metre gardens, and enjoys shared ownership of the remainder of the site.
The shared facilities include the mature wood, a picturesque split-level small lake, a private tennis court with pavilion, fruit orchard and allotments. Apart from the individual properties and their gardens, the site is maintained through a management company owned and controlled by the residents.
These unique new homes are built well beyond the requirements of current Building Regulations, the aim being to provide spacious, comfortable, low maintenance homes that are exceptionally economical to run. Environmental performance is achieved by a wide range of design, build and technological features, including:
- An exceptional high thermal-mass structure, which is super-insulated
- Virtually air-tight construction, with triple-glazing throughout, plus additional double-glazing to the sun-room and the first-floor balcony
- Ventilation and shower-waste heat-recovery systems
- Low energy appliances and lighting
- Innovative use of ceiling-mounted infra-red panels, to provide controllable space-heating
- Solar-generated electricity, any surplus from which is diverted to the hot water cylinder
- Use of harvested rainwater to flush toilets, this reducing mains-water consumption by around 40%
