1039 New-build eco-friendly development, Barnes


Our grand eco-friendly development was completed in Barnes in 2021.

This single-story brick new built eco-friendly house in London is a modern and sustainable home designed to minimize its impact on the environment. The house is built using eco-friendly materials and features energy-efficient systems and technologies.

The exterior of the house is made of brick, giving it a traditional and timeless look. The house is designed to blend in with the surrounding neighborhood. The windows and doors are double-glazed to improve energy efficiency.

Inside, the house feels open and airy, with a minimalist and uncluttered design. The floors are engineered timber, and the walls are painted with low VOC (volatile organic compound) paint. The house features a heat recovery system and an air source heat pump (ASHP). This system recovers heat from outgoing air to heat incoming fresh air, helping to reduce heating costs and improve energy efficiency.

The kitchen features energy-efficient appliances and fixtures, such as an induction stove and a low-flow faucet. The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable, with large windows that allow plenty of natural light to enter the room. The bathrooms feature low-flow toilets and a water-saving showerhead.

In addition, this single-story brick newly built eco-friendly house in London has ample outdoor space, with native plants and vegetation that require less water and maintenance.

Overall, this single-story brick newly built eco-friendly house in London is a beautiful and sustainable home that is designed to reduce its environmental impact while providing a comfortable and healthy living space for its occupants
