Designed for maximum flexibility and living space. Perfect for use as a private hideaway or for entertaining friends and family. Flexible layouts give you options to arrange your furniture in whatever configuration suits the way you live.
Large floor-to-ceiling windows can open directly over a level threshold onto your enclosed private garden. They create a great sense of light and space. It brings the outdoors in and it's like having an extra room in your house.
The double-glazed PVCu windows are low maintenance and maximise natural daylight in your home. The special coated glass is highly thermally efficient which helps keep the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer. When closed, they are an airtight fit eliminating drafts - perfect for the Winter months.
Underfloor heating can silently deliver even heat, but uses less fuel than conventional radiators. Temperatures can be adjusted in each room to suit your preference. Underfloor heating results in a low moisture content which reduces dust levels and potential for dust mites. Furthermore, no wall-mounted radiators means greater flexibility for positioning your furniture.
All internal lighting installed in your house is 100% low energy. It saves energy and saves you money.
TV/FM/Satellite & BT plates are installed as standard. Some houses are pre-wired for future installation of multimedia systems making them ideal for home entertainment systems or use as a home office.
Where available built-in oven, hob with extractor hood, fridge freezer and dishwasher are all integrated to maintain a sleek contemporary kitchen design. All appliances are A-rated and combine high performance with low energy use.
The generous storage includes both floor and wall-mounted units which provide plenty of capacity in both cupboards and drawers. Most kitchens are constructed using FSC certified timber which ensures the timber comes from sustainable sources.
An under-sink triple-bin slides out for easy access. Some local councils organise regular kerbside collections of recyclable waste.
To ensure you have the best light for food preparation, you'll find precisely positioned task lighting including low energy downlighters and under-cabinet lighting. This provides lighting exactly where it's needed with no wasted light, electricity or cost.
All kitchens are fitted with contemporary and water-saving Hansgrohe mixer taps. These mix air with water to provide the water you need while reducing the amount of water you use. A saving in water, energy and costs.
As a standard safety feature, BSI kitemark approved responsive smoke detectors are fitted in the kitchen and at each level.
Bedrooms can be used in the way that best suits your lifestyle - from conventional use as adult or children's bedrooms to use as home offices or family/TV rooms.
Master bedroom suites benefit from an en suite bathroom and are often equipped with TV/FM/Satellite & BT plates. In addition, some master bedrooms have private balconies.
Streamlined, fitted, wardrobes can provide plenty of storage so your bedroom can remain a calm, uncluttered space.
Thermostatic radiator valves mean each radiator can be set at precisely the temperature you want when you want. Total comfort - with no wasted heat and no wasted money.
In some homes an innovative and energy-efficient air exchange system is integrated throughout the house ensuring a constant supply of fresh, pre-warmed, filtered air. A more pleasant and healthy environment to sleep in and even better for allergy sufferers.
Bathrooms are carefully designed, many with timeless fully fitted white Roca or Villeroy and Boch bathrooms suites - easy to coordinate and to decorate around.
Stylish chrome Hansgrohe mixer taps to baths and basins provide innovative Air Power Technology. APT mixes air with water to create a softer, more voluminous and more luxurious water flow while thermostatic bath and shower mixers give you precision temperature control for your comfort and safety. Better features that are energy and cost saving.
Dual flush toilets are standard in all the bathrooms. They use a third less water than older models and reduce your water bill.
Stylish chrome towel rails in bathrooms provide additional heat, as well as effective towel storage.
An innovative air exchange system can be particularly welcome in bathrooms. It ensures continuous, yet highly efficient ventilation without the need for conventional and noisy fan systems. Bathrooms stay fresh and hygienic with no moisture buildup.
The highly insulated walls, roofs and ground floors - keep the cold air out and warm air in. Unpleasant drafts are a thing of the past and soundproofing is improved to reduce disturbance. The result is greater year-round temperature efficiency at lower cost and consuming less CO2.
Highly efficient mechanical ventilation and heat recovery systems can ensure that your house benefits from a continuous supply of fresh, warm or cool filtered air, almost like having your own climate control. The system automatically takes out old stale air and lets in fresh air. And it's silent and almost invisible, just a small fixture on the ceiling, but no large extractor fans and no noise.
Heating is sometimes provided via a highly efficient air source heat pump which provides both heat - underfloor heating and radiators - and hot water. Once set to your preferred temperature, individual room thermostats ensure a constant temperature at greatly reduced heating costs and CO2. Controls and maintenance are similar to a gas boiler, but the benefits in cost saving and comfort are much superior.
