In a home of this nature, in a location as special as Urquhart, you would expect that everything has been attended to with the greatest care.
For example, the internal doors are high-specification oak: you can feel and hear the quality. Skirting boards are a generous 140mm deep, and match the style of the 90mm architrave around the doors, while the floors are in a timeless oak wide board.
The quality of finish continues with the staircase: the handrail and newel posts will be in oak and the contemporary balustrade will feature stainless-steel solid bars and tension twist wire rope. Some of the homes also feature galleried staircases – a particularly attractive feature.Computer-generated images for illustrative purposes only.
Your rooms aren’t just generous in width and length – we can specify a ceiling height of 2.7m, far greater than many other luxury home-builders choose to offer.
Many properties feature highly efficient woodburning stoves – ‘hole-in-the-wall’ units which offer not only stunning visual appeal, but an ecological way of heating your home.
Working closely with manufacturers such as Smallbone of Devizes, we can offer a range of high-quality kitchen units and appliances. Worktop options include the classic appeal of black granite and the modern sheen of stainless steel.
In keeping with the woodland setting, sustainability and energy efficiency issues were vital in determining the house styles, all of which can achieve a band B rating on the A-G scale.
The timber cladding is from a sustainable source, and we have worked to minimise the use of concrete. The careful positioning of each home within the plot, and the contemporary style, enables large areas of south- and west-facing triple glazing, capitalising on solar gain and saving energy.
Of course, high levels of insulation on the remainder of the building – together with geothermal heating, woodburning stoves and solar panels – help to conserve energy and add to your home’s eco-friendly credentials.
