Each new home at Oxley Woods is constructed from sustainable materials and employs unique features including an ‘EcoHat’ chimney, which filters fresh air and re-uses hot air to optimise energy consumption and provide passive solar water heating.

The new build properties are designed to exceed the Government’s sustainability targets with carbon emissions 50% lower than typical new homes for sale in Milton Keynes. This high standard is achieved through measures such as the use of ultra-effective insulation made from recycled paper, plus sealed glass panel windows which keep heat locked inside.

The Lifetime Homes-accredited buildings are precision engineered off site to allow them to be quickly and economically erected while maintaining build quality.
