Continued increases in wholesale energy prices led Ofgem to announce a further planned increase of 80% to UK energy bills on 1 October 2022. Arriving at the perfect time for those looking to minimise their energy costs and carbon footprint, Burrington Estates is launching eight new, environmentally friendly three-bedroom homes at their picturesque Tilehurst Green development. These new homes, which are ready for residents to move into this Autumn, have been designed with the environment in mind, and are each equipped with sustainability-boosting features to minimise residents’ environmental impact and energy costs.
To aid buyers with the financial strain of increasing energy prices, Burrington Estates is offering buyers £2000 towards their energy bills following completion on homes at Tilehurst Green.
Tilehurst Green in Binfield, Berkshire, is Burrington Estates’ first development in the Home Counties. The traditionally styled homes at Tilehurst Green benefit from a prestigious Binfield address on Tilehurst Lane, which is set against a backdrop of mature trees, yet within walking distance of everything the thriving village of Binfield has to offer. This development has a tranquil, rural feel yet remains well connected to excellent transport links to local towns and beyond. Constructed with materials from sustainable sources the new properties on offer at this development provide low carbon heating as standard and have an EPC Rating of ‘B’ making them more thermally efficient than 89% of UK homes.
The premium three-bedroom homes available at Tilehurst Green feature air source heat pumps to generate renewable heat that minimises fuel usage, keeping homes warmer for less. The smart energy controls installed in these properties allow residents to monitor and regulate their energy consumption. Additional eco-conscious features include low energy downlighters, sustainable draining systems, and energy efficient underfloor heating to ensure residents can reduce their environmental impact whilst also saving on their energy bills. For added financial support, residents of these homes are entitled to preferential rates and possible cash back offers from Green Mortgage Lenders.
Contrasting with their timeless exteriors, the contemporary interior specification of homes at Tilehurst Green showcases the latest in high quality, environmentally considerate design, and premium fixtures and fittings. Constructed with timeless materials including local heritage brick, chalk flint and black weatherboarding, they reflect the local vernacular of Binfield and blend seamlessly into the local area. Despite their heritage feel, these spacious homes cater to modern living, and feature driveways with electric car charging points, enabling residents to charge their electric vehicles.
John Scott, Sales and Marketing Director at Burrington Estates, comments: “This launch of three-bedroom homes at Tilehurst Green is an ideal opportunity for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint and to make a smart investment by future proofing the home that they purchase. There will be no requirement in future years to make an expensive conversion from high carbon gas heating systems.”
