Is it really possible to design a house which looks good, is a pleasure to live in and has a positive impact on the environment? The two creative owners of this home believe they managed to achieve this vision when they designed and built their stunning Poynton home 14 years ago in what is now called the broken plan style.
Designed to stand the test of eco time, this super insulated property was built with sleek design and user friendly innovation in mind and has made a very comfortable and exciting functional family home. Currently up for sale, the magnificent 4,600 square foot property, which sits at the edge of Pike Pond in Cheshire, has an extremely attractive 82 rating on energy output, a 78 on CO2 emissions and with a net of £700 per annum income from solar panels, costs the owners less than £1300 a year to run!
With energy supply prices at an all time high, the prospect of saving money on household bills has never been a more attractive one. The energy efficient skylights for example, prevent frost, provide better insulation, increase sound proofing and thanks to their Argon gas composition also help block UV rays.
No radiators are required. Energy saving under floor heating throughout and Swedish triple glazed windows help keep the property at an ambient temperature all year round . And to add a little cheer to the darker winter nights the energy efficient Ribbon Flame living room fire will have you feeling relaxed in no time.
It is not just the eco-friendly or money saving benefits the owners have considered however, innovation and functionality come into all appliances and fitted furnishings, as well as the stylish finishing touches.
