AGENT’S NOTES

The house benefits from a ground based solar photovoltaic array located at a distance from the house to preserve the aesthetic of the property. It generates circa 10MWh per annum, saving circa £525 on electricity bills and currently generating a revenue of £1370 per annum through the Feed In Tariff and electricity export to the national grid.

The Austrian made biomass boiler currently generates an annual revenue of £8169 through the Domestic Renewable Heat
Incentive. All rooms are served by a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system that is situated in the loft. This recycles waste heat and supplies filtered fresh air throughout the house.

The house has also been prepared for the future installation of a rainwater harvesting system. The house is further fitted with Category 5 cabling and power for wall mounted televisions in most rooms, external cctv on all aspects, two EV charging points and a three phase electrical supply.
