Superior quality four bedroom house in a pleasant edge of village setting enjoying wonderful views over the surround countryside and the Exe Estuary. This individually built property offers spacious well planned accommodation with quality fixtures and fittings. Whilst the property has been constructed using quality traditional construction and workmanship, it includes many modern energy saving and lifestyle features designed to reduce the long term running costs and increase living comfort for the owners.
Construction – the property is of traditional brick and block construction, with the majority of internal walls also of rendered block construction.
Heating – mains gas is used for heating with underfloor heating on the ground floor and bathrooms, and radiators in the bedrooms.
Whole House Ventilation – the installed MVHR (mechanical ventilation with heat recovery) supplies and extracts air continuously at a low rate. Air is drawn from the “wet” rooms such as bathrooms and kitchen and passed through a heat exchanger which warms the incoming and filtered fresh air before it is distributed into the habitable rooms. This process ensures a reduction in heat loss from the property therefore reducing energy bills.
Insulation – the property has the latest LABC standards of insulation and u-values meet or exceed the applicable building requirements. In addition windows and doors are fitted with quality double glazed units. Velux roof windows are triple glazed all door and windows are multi point locking with "secure by design" handles and locks where appropriate.
Communications – as part of the initial design and construction the living areas and bedrooms are wired with network cable (cat 5), telephone and TV/Satellite cables.
Rainwater Harvesting – the property also benefits from an installed rainwater harvesting system meaning water is collected from the roof and stored in an underground tank and used for outside taps and inside WC’s therefore dramatically reducing water and sewerage charges.
Lighting - all low energy (predominently LED)
The property is conveniently located for local village amenities including Shops, Post Office, Health Centre, Primary School and regular public transport. Nearby there are delightful countryside walks. The canal tow path and river Exe are also conveniently nearby, and are popular for walking and cycle rides. In addition the village has a golf club, which provides a challenging 2616 yd 9 hole course, together with 14 bay covered driving range and a club house. The cathedral city of Exeter is just 4 miles away and offers a host of larger stores and leisure facilities.
