Innovative Low Energy Homes
Now completed, Stockhouse Farm is another low energy development by LEATHWAITE of four new two and three bedroom homes in the Surrey Hills.
The homes are built using modern methods of construction, including Insulated Concrete Formwork walls, to create thermally efficient structures which maximise the benefits of low energy renewable technology.
Complementing the ‘high-tech’ construction are external finishes using traditional materials creating a style sympathetic to the rural setting and the history of the site.
Stockhouse Farm stands in one of the most sought after locations in the Surrey Hills, within easy reach of many miles of country paths, ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Train stations nearby include Clandon, Guildford and Woking – which has trains direct to London Waterloo in 27 minutes.
Gatwick Airport is only a 40 minute drive away and Heathrow 45 minutes. The M25 London Orbital motorway is accessed only 12 miles away and the A3 which provides access north towards London and south towards Portsmouth is even closer.
Low Energy ‘A Rated’ Homes
Each of the new homes will have EPC ‘A’ rating for Energy Efficiency and Environmental Impact. Built to a very high standard, using “Passive House” principles to create thermally efficient structures completed with external finishes sympathetic to their rural setting.
The renewable technologies installed include air source heat pumps, MVHR and solar panels. These are all integrated with a ground breaking ventilation system known as Be-Hive. This controls the ventilation in the homes in a unique and efficient manner enabling the homes to utilise the warm air beneath the solar panels (up to 60% of the energy created by solar panels is warm air beneath the panels which is usually wasted). Be-Hive also provides background ‘passive’ cooling during warmer months. Stockhouse Farm stands out as featuring the very best in low energy technology.
