Modern yet sympathetic to the site.... a pair of thoughtfully designed three bedroom bungalows in a rural location with glorious views across the Stour Valley.

Both homes have a low impact on their surroundings and an even lower impact on the environment, offering huge savings compared to average household energy bills.

Plot 1 is complemented by a detached studio that shares the views, perfect for a home office or hobby space.

Household energy requirements are kept to a minimum by excellent levels of insulation and airtight detailing, along with triple glazing. Both homes are served by solar PV panels to generate electricity, coupled with air source heat pumps, underfloor heating and whole-house ventilation systems for a healthy internal environment.

Completed Spring 2016
