Eco and financially-friendly homes in Ruthin

30th June 2010 Print

With research* indicating that a third of house hunters would pay more for a home already fitted with a renewable energy source, Taylor Wimpey North West is proving to be ahead of the pack at its Glasdir development in Ruthin - with a range of ‘green’ homes starting from as little as £179,950.

Glasdir, which won the 2008 Welsh BREEAM award, set the standard for best practice in sustainable design, and was used by Jane Davidson, Minister for Environment, Sustainability and Housing, to launch a new green standards policy for new buildings in Wales earlier this year.

Sam Williams, regional sales manager, said: “As people become more conscious about the environment, the demand for EcoHomes has increased and, when it comes to environmentally-friendly properties, the trend of ‘going green’ is covered at our Glasdir development. With prices starting from less than £180,000, we’re helping buyers to be kind to the environment without sacrificing their bank accounts!

“Glasdir clearly demonstrates how new homes can offer more sustainable living through being professionally designed and built to minimise waste, whilst working in balance with their surroundings. Achieving these elements, Glasdir is a vibrant eco-friendly community which provides residents with the healthy and attractive environment so many modern buyers are now demanding, for even less than you might think.”

‘Green’ homes at Glasdir currently include the four bedroom semi-detached Halkyn, four bedroom detached Saron and five bedroom detached Llandegla properties, with prices starting from just £179,950.

Each house offers spacious yet flexible interior layouts while providing buyers with a number of environmental and potential financial benefits:

- Highly efficient central heating boilers produce minimal carbon and nitrous oxide emissions. This not only helps the environment but also help reduce heating bills.

- Extensive low energy lighting, used both indoors and outdoors, to aid the reduction of carbon emissions from overuse of electricity. This means each home at Glasdir is up to four times more energy efficient than older properties.

- Sustainable and eco-friendly building materials are used in construction to ensure the environmental impacts of the development have been significantly reduced.

So, why not join Taylor Wimpey’s efforts to help Wales go green by visiting Glasdir to see if the development’s new eco-friendly homes are for you? Set amongst beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Ruthin, the development combines modern living with a picturesque rural location, offering green open space for residents to enjoy.

Taylor Wimpey is also offering a range of financial incentives, designed to help make moving on to and up the property ladder easier. So, whether you are a first time buyer seeking an environmentally-friendly starter home or a family wanting space to grow into, the housebuilder can tailor a scheme to suit your circumstances.
