The design and layout is the result of many hours of planning involving a wider design-team in an effort to create an environment symbiotic with 21st Century rural living.
Elsrickle is partially ‘off-grid’. The developer has considered the design and practicalities of eco-living and whilst passive-house standards have been considered, the pit-falls that total passive-house living have been avoided. First and foremost is an unsurpassable standard of thermal insulation and construction management to maintain high standards of air-tightness and building-efficiency. Coupling this with underfloor heating using air-source heat-pumps and solar panels, cost effective living is guaranteed.
The houses themselves will be bright and airy with flexible layouts on two floors – every house has a utility room, ground floor shower-room and a canopy at the front door – there are private terraced gardens and parking is within the curtilage. The design is themed to maintain continuity yet each plot offers an individual solution.
Plots 5-10 are at the final stages of construction. The developer has taken reservations on several plots and until these reservations are honoured, has been reluctant to commit to further reservations. However later in 2022 there will be a release of further properties.
