Energy-efficient development offers underfloor-heated homes
Property developer Hayfield has now acquired a site in Buckinghamshire, where it plans to build eco-friendly homes with a luxury finish.
Among the comforts offered to future occupants will be energy-saving underfloor heating systems, which will be powered by a greener technology solution – air source heat pumps. This will provide the residences with opulently warm rooms using a far lower carbon system than traditional gas boilers and radiators.
Purchased for around £21 million, the new site is almost seven acres in size and is located within Little Kimble, a Buckinghamshire village. The developer’s plans involve the construction of 40 individual luxury homes with many cutting-edge features, like ultra-fast broadband connectivity, which is ideal for those working remotely from home.
The heat pump and underfloor heating combination isn’t the only green element to the newly planned properties. To help homeowners seeking to support the government’s ambitions of achieving net zero by 2050 with the purchase of an electric vehicle (EV), the project will futureproof the site. To do this, the latest fast-charging facilities for EVs will be installed for eco-conscious drivers no longer using petrol and diesel to power their cars.
Based close to Aylesbury, the development will include homes of different sizes to suit different buyers. Houses that offer two, three, four and five-bedroom options are listed in a planning application submitted to Buckinghamshire Council for approval. Other features of the upcoming project include a landscaped area for public use and a brand-new shop to serve residents of the village.
