Energy efficient houses creating sustainable living in this unique historic setting

Our Green Walk development at the beautiful Standish Estate in the Cotswolds boasts superb new properties set in landscaped grounds, centred round a Grade II listed villa.

It’s a beautiful site, repurposing heritage buildings to become modern homes and with a wide range of new build properties to suit people at all stages of life.

Our latest release is a trio of supremely energy efficient houses where the latest technology is incorporated to create luxurious, sustainable living in this unique historic setting.

These are exceptional houses, offering spacious, flexible accommodation, set over three levels to make the most of the views, with their own private gardens.

Group sales manager Gavin Pearce, said: “The range of properties available at Green Walk, often surprises buyers but means we are creating a truly mixed community where old buildings are cherished and new homes sit comfortably alongside.

“The Hawthorn house type offers the opportunity to live in this lovely setting in a property that generates its own power and will be incredibly efficient to run.

“We believe it offers buyers the rare opportunity to purchase a very large property which meets the highest environmental standards in a development that will never be replicated.”

The high tech green trio will have: waste water heat recovery systems, triple glazing, exceptional insulation, photo-voltaic panels and the facility to store the power created, and the potential for electric vehicle charging.

Added up it means that the properties will use 43% less energy.

The contemporary design of the properties complements these eco credentials with multi-functional spaces that could easily accommodate the growing trend for multi- generational living.

The grand entrance, which can also be accessed directly from the garage, leads through into the high specification open plan kitchen/family/dining area which spans the full width of the house with bi-fold doors leading directly onto a balcony. This level also offers a private study, utility and powder room.

Wide stairs take you to the lower level with a large living area opening directly onto the private garden.

This level also offers a self-contained guest suite and a multi-functional room that can be accessed directly from outside which could be a media room/den or second living room.

The master suite is on the first floor together with three more large double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite. There is also a master bathroom and ample storage.

Gavin added: “Green Walk is a stunning development, approached through a gate house and up a private drive and offers buyers a completely different way of life with walks around the estate passed century old trees and direct access to woodland walks and the surrounding countryside.

“These homes offer buyers their own eco-retreat, yet are just ten minutes from the town of Stonehouse with its direct rail link into London and a 15-minute trip to Stroud.”
