Homebuyers can save money on energy bills – and be kinder to the planet – by choosing a brand new eco-home at Taylor Wimpey’s Drayton View development of property for sale in Daventry, Northamptonshire.

Forward-thinking housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is putting the environment first with its innovative Drayton View development of new homes in Daventry.

State of the art heat-reclamation systems, high-specification cavity wall insulation and double glazing, ultra-efficient white goods and appliances, plus green goodies such as water butts and compost bins all help the 56 eco homes at the popular development of houses for sale in Daventry live up to their name.

These environmentally-friendly innovations take the houses in Daventry at Drayton View beyond the standards of today’s building regulations, for the benefit of the planet – and the lucky homeowners who find their energy bills are substantially reduced.

Some of the technology installed in the new properties in Daventry at Drayton View is truly ingenious, as Jan Titley, Regional Sales and Marketing Manager for Taylor Wimpey, explains.

“One of our most impressive features within this stunning collection of property in Daventry is a mechanical heating and vent system, which takes excess warm air from the kitchen and bathroom, filters it – which includes getting rid of dustmites and drawing out the moisture – mixes it with fresh air and then circulates it around the house,” she says.

“Normally that heat would be wasted as it would be sucked out of the house by an extractor fan. Here, it’s reused and helps to heat your home. It also means you can have fresh air in your home without having to open a window, which would cause more heat to be lost.”

Other eco features to selected properties at Drayton View can include high efficiency water taps, low flush cisterns, a shower save system, a gas save system plus intelligent heating timers and thermostats.

Drayton View has also been designed with local wildlife populations in mind, with a number of ‘bat bricks’ installed in several homes, offering a safe nesting site for the protected animals.

A choice of delightful, energy-efficient properties is available to buy now at Drayton View, including three-bedroom houses from only £127,283* through Taylor Wimpey’s Easy Start shared equity scheme.

Forming part of the popular Middlemore development, Drayton View enjoys a desirable semi-rural location with panoramic views across far-reaching vistas over open countryside.

A picturesque cul-de-sac development, Drayton View includes long established hedgerows, protected mature trees and open fields to the side.

Located on the northern edge of Daventry town and easily accessible from the M1, Middlemore benefits from children’s play areas, nature trails and cycleways, plus its own pub – an 18th century Grade II listed former farmhouse – and a convenience store.

A partnership between the local council and British Waterways has meant that Middlemore is part of a series of pretty linked walks that take in the wildlife sites along two local reservoirs, disused railway lines and the Grand Union Canal towpath.

Nearby Drayton Reservoir is one of the best for carp fishing in England and is surrounded by trees and waterside vegetation and a jetty-style wooden walkway. It also feeds into the Grand Union Canal, which is a conservation area.

Potential buyers who want to find out more about the eco homes for sale at Drayton View can visit the Sales Centre, located off Farnborough Road, Daventry and open Thursday to Monday between 10am and 5pm.
