Property description. This stunning architect designed home has been constructed by a local family of builders that were established in 1955 and are now a third generation of fathers and sons team. The design of this unique build evokes images of mid century Californian design loosely based around homes produced by Joseph Eichler in the 1950s but with a 21st-century specification to meet and indeed exceed the latest building regulations whilst achieve a sap calculation of 100% and certified as an (A) rated dwelling. This entire build has been carried out under the shelter of complete site scaffolding cover to protect all materials from the winter rain and elements meaning at no point in the build has any part of these buildings been subject to water ingress.
This home has been smart wired to accommodate the latest voice and mobile phone control demands of modern living whilst the outside facias and seamless gutters are powder coated aluminium with cedar soffits of 1 m width to give paths and walkways shelter from the prevailing elements. The home has sunken Italian porcelain patios and slow Rise Italian porcelain steps with soft under lighting. Complete privacy has been thought of, all the boundary walls are 2 m high rendered block work electric entrance gates with a 6.5 m² double garages that comfortably hold two vehicles and there is further parking for numerous vehicles on the resin driveway. The large double garage has a beautifully designed electrically operated sectional garage door with a steel side exit door leading straight to the main dwelling. Taps and electrical points are also located externally. Further high specification additions include underfloor heating and air source heat pump, solar pv heat recovery fresh air units, sedum roof coverings to soften and help blend into the wooden area and give added protection to the roof coverings, and all windows throughout this design are insulated triple glazed aluminium with Pilkington anti sun tinted glass to reduce solar gain. Impressive and stylistic touches inside include a double sided log burner stove to make the long winter evenings cosy and warm.
These high specification, eco-friendly and extremely efficient cost effective homes really are unique in this keenly sought after location, and as such early viewing is advised.
