New Developments, SOLD
Carlisle Estates are delighted to produce two of the first eco-friendly homes, built to the passive specifications, available to buy in Cumbria! These two highly energy-efficient & unique detached properties in the highly sought after village of Scotby near Carlisle will be built with a private entrance and road, with views over open fields and distant fells.
The style of these high quality and energy-efficient properties are new to the Cumbrian market, with the level of quality, space, unique design & energy rating efficiencies far exceeding typical new-build homes. Carlisle Estates have made significant commitments to achieving exceptional cost-effective and comfortable homes in Cumbria.
Set across two floors, both homes will feature 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and the highest quality finishes with German kitchens, featuring luxury branded appliances and Quartz worktops. Limebeck Close provides luxury living but with the best environmentally friendly passive specification ratings available today. Both houses feature double height hallway and living room ceilings for that added wow factor.
Additional landscaping to the site will add to the mature aspect which already exists creating a modern country setting whilst positioned in the picturesque village of Scotby in Carlisle, with a primary school, Post Office, village shop, a recently fully refurbished traditional Country pub and only one mile from the nearest M6 junction, with Tesco just minutes away makes for very accessible living.
Passive Specification Housing is the world’s leading energy efficiency standard and a construction concept made to build comfortable, environmentally friendly and affordable homes for the future.
The houses, design by Blackbox Architects in Carlisle, use orientation and simple “passive” design – using sunshine, shade, ventilation and building materials – to avoid the need for fossil fuels for traditional central heating and hot water production. The only technical input being solar roof panels linked to the electrical circuits for hot water storage and air source heat pumps to feed the underfloor heating system. The house uses simple solar gain and external thermal insulation to retain heat all year round with solid wall construction and no cavities or cold spots. By only using the highest levels of insulation, airtightness and building materials, passive specification homes can use up to 90% less energy than a standard home.
Internal air is circulated through filters and mixed with fresh air to help maintain a steady temperature even in the middle of winter and to assist with cooling in summer. The electricity supply to each house will be through a supplier linked to the new green register for clean electricity production too.
Limebeck Close’s passive specification homes will offer a superior indoor comfort experience thanks to the consistent temperatures and good quality airflow. They also have the added benefit of reducing both external and internal noise due to the high levels of insulation and triple-glazed windows. These new luxury homes will have the most efficient performance standard available in today’s market.
With ever rising energy costs and the abolishment of Gas in New homes built from 2025, energy efficiency is an important aspect to consider when buying a new home, overall our new homes in Scotby have been calculated at Pre build stage EPC Energy level ‘A 96’ with the potential once built to further this to ‘A 98’ which to put in context an average home in England during 2020 was Band D 60 just demonstrating the incredible achievement we strive for in our new properties.
