‘Free solar energy’ with new homes at Oak Tree Court

6th August 2012 Print

House-hunters are being offered a unique opportunity to receive free solar energy ‘for life’ when they reserve one of the final three properties available at Oak Tree Court in Tollerton, Nottinghamshire.

The exclusive, gated development of five-bedroom eco homes offers homebuyers significant savings through energy-saving technologies. These include air source heat pumps that quietly absorb heat from the outside atmosphere even in very cold weather, using this to provide 75% of the energy needed for heating and hot water.

Every room has warm water underfloor heating, offering up to 85% energy savings on conventional systems, while a stylish and welcoming log-burning stove within the family room function so efficiently that they emit no more CO2 than wood left to decay naturally.

With the installation of PV panels to capture solar energy all year round, properties at Oak Tree Court can achieve A-rated energy performance – the gold standard in UK home energy efficiency.

Roy Pickavance, Managing Director of house-builder Chebsey Estates, said: “PV roof panels are offered as an optional extra at Oak Tree Court, but with just three new houses now remaining for sale we have decided to provide the incentive of free panels and installation to customers reserving one of our final homes during August.

“This means that fast-moving purchasers can take advantage of even greater energy savings when they move to Oak Tree Court, with feed-in tariff generation at an average rate of 1900 kWh per year – enough to offset more than 50% of energy used by the typical UK household.”

Houses at Oak Tree Court also benefit from airtight windows and insulation balanced by filtered warm air ventilation to ensure a fresh, healthy living environment with reduced allergens.

Selected homes come with up to an acre of paddock and woodland, while all properties at the 10-home development are bounded by greenbelt and farmland, and enjoy access to maintained facilities including a tennis court.

Prices start from £565,950. For further information, visit
