The environment, or more accurately climate change is possibly the most widely discussed global issue at the moment, and increasingly many people are looking at ways they can play a part.
This stunning three bed property near Turriff does just that, but it also comes with a whole host of features which will bring some welcome cost savings on energy usage.
With its bespoke design, the first thing that strikes any visitor is the Scottish Larch frontage and the extensive grounds that surround it. Glass and wood are a key element both externally and internally and it’s very clear that this home has been specifically designed to soak up as much natural sunlight as possible.
Unsurprisingly this “Eco” home is extremely bright and airy and it has definitely been built with a huge amount of care and thought, both in terms of comfort and aesthetics.
The property enjoys an air tight construction, and alongside super high levels of Icyenene insulation as well as triple glazed windows, you can feel safe in the knowledge that you won’t be losing heat and pounds unnecessarily!
However, the state of the art “Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery System”, which provides the circulation of fresh air around the home, should be enough to pique the interest of the most technologically and ecologically minded, and that’s before you even consider the sixteen 4kw ground mounted solar PV panels which supply the electricity, and the solar thermal panels on the roof which will provide most of the hot water you’ll ever need.
This home undoubtedly has modern written all over it, but it is also homely, with a large dining area leading into a comfortable and spacious lounge. This includes a large wood burning stove, providing the ideal cosy living space as we move into those chilly autumn and winter evenings.
The kitchen is, as you might expect, of a contemporary design, and of the highest quality. A stylish island is the star, but it is complemented by Quartz worktops, integrated appliances, and small but plush touches, such as a separate boiling tap.
A solid oak open tread stair with striking glass balustrades take you to the first floor where you will find the luxurious master bedroom and ensuite wet room. The other two generously sized bedrooms will be plenty for a growing family or visitors, but it is also here you’ll discover a sumptuous family bathroom, with his and her wash basins, a gorgeous free standing bath, and a stylish two seater steam shower cubical.
The property is situated on a large plot which is fully enclosed, with a garden, much of it laid to lawn, flowing from the gable end all the way round the rear. The fruit trees and a gazebo with fully installed power and light just add some further character to this magnificent home.
Just two miles from Turriff, you’re never far away from all of the amenities you’d need, including shops and schools, and at offers over £320,000, it’s both eco and price friendly.
