Skyfall occupies an exceptionally idyllic and mature position set back from the road with views across adjoining countryside. The house was designed and built with two functions in mind; luxury and sustainability, the house boasts a total carbon free energy efficient design with a proven technology, though very new within the UK, this system is called a Seasonal Thermal Energy Storage System (STES). Along with solar panels and STES, this house can be totally carbon free.
There is underfloor heating throughout with primary heating via Air Source heat pump with whole house ventilation. Hot water is heated via 8 solar thermal panels positioned on the roof and any excess heat generated by the solar panels is stored within a thermal store for use at a later date. The state of art green heating system is also aided by exceptionally high levels of thermal insulation making this new home extremely kind to the environment. In addition, Sedum green roofs are installed. These filter particulate matter from the air and convert CO2 into oxygen, consequently contributing to air purification.
