Green Pastures is a detached modern house built in 2005 to exacting standards. It has been extended and remodelled with no expense spared by the current owners, with plans created by RIBA architect John Woodward. The ground floor accommodation is now mainly open plan but with the ability to be zoned to create more intimate spaces if required. The superb garden room extension has panoramic windows that take full advantage of the views and which also slide open to seamlessly integrate the inside and outside space, a wonderful feature, particularly for entertaining in the summer.Green Credentials
Green Pastures is probably one of the most energy efficient homes to come onto the market in the area. The house is highly insulated and heated by a ground source heat pump which feeds into zoned under floor heating and also supplies all domestic hot water. South facing photo-voltaic panels provide an index linked income for 25 years from installation (2011). Currently the income from both the feed in tariff exceeds the yearly energy bill for the property.
In 2019 the eco-credentials of the property have been enhanced by the addition of a fully integrated Tesla battery A/C system which operates automatically and reduces reliance on the grid to create a 'zero emissions' home by storing sustainable solar energy. During the summer months the house is mainly 'off grid'.Accommodation
