Underfloor-heated Grand Designs home enters market
A one-of-a-kind property in Buckinghamshire that was featured on the popular Channel 4 television programme “Grand Designs” has now become available to purchase.
The five-bedroom property has many showcase features, including some environmentally friendlier options, including underfloor heating. Many property designers are seeking greener technology for the building plans they create in line with the UK government’s ongoing aims to lower carbon emissions and achieve net-zero by 2050.
Underfloor heating systems work well with ground and air source heat pumps, which are low-carbon energy sources compared to traditional gas boilers. Underfloor heating is also energy efficient, leading to lower fuel use. This is not only beneficial to the environment, but saves money for homeowners on annual utilities.
With a price tag of £1,200,000, the home also has turf roofing. This innovative option keeps heat in during the winter and provides a cooler living environment over the summer months, while also providing a habitat for local wildlife. Another eco-friendly system installed onsite are solar panels designed to capture the sun’s rays and convert them into a renewable energy source for residents, further reducing utility costs.
Like the cutting-edge heating system installed in the property, the rest of the home also boasts impressive technological advances, like a massive home cinema. The luxurious option impressed audiences when it was displayed during Grand Designs’ fourteenth series.
Well-placed, the unique home is situated in Deanshanger, close to both Milton Keynes Central and Wolverton train station for connections across the country.
