With ever rising energy costs, many of us are frequently checking our bills and looking for ways for reduce our costs and also our carbon footprint. If you are thinking of moving or purchasing a home, you may like to consider a new build property as all new build homes are very much built with energy saving features in mind.
Since the government announced strict changes to building regulations with regard to conservation of fuel and power, new build homes have had to be built with excellent energy saving aspects, making them both ecological and economical.
For instance, if you compare the average yearly energy costs of a three bedroom, semi detached Victorian house (with some modern improvements), to the equivalent new build home that has been built to 2013 Building Regulations, you could make a staggering average annual saving of £890 on your energy costs. This substantial saving of 57% is just one of the many benefits of living in a new build home.*
The graphic below shows the average yearly difference in energy costs (estimated) from living in a new build home compared to a renovated Victorian property;*
Whilst we are eagerly awaiting the new homes at Ewshot Gardens that are due at the end of this year/early next year, we do also have some stunning new properties that are ready and available to move into immediately.
They are set within a brand new cul de sac in the centre of Hook village; an extremely sought after location with plenty of local amenities such a shops, schools, café’s and public houses and a main line train station with regular services to London and the South Coast.
There are two designs available; the larger of the two is The Foxglove that presents five bedrooms, two en suites, a study, lounge, a double garage and a fully fitted kitchen with an open plan dining room with French doors to the rear garden.
The second is The Primrose which also includes five bedrooms and has a spacious lounge and that stunning open plan kitchen diner, creating a wonderfully social family and entertaining space.
