Newly built four-bedroom B1 house of 152 sq m
This 152 sqm house is for sale in a new development outside Kilmeaden village with the energy-efficient B1 rating. The house has a large sitting room with open fireplace, smaller living/study room, guest WC and a big open-plan kitchen with dining area and hexagonal sun room.
Centre stairs from the hallway lead to four bedrooms. The main bedroom is en suite with a walk-in wardrobe, the two double rooms have three-door wardrobes, the fourth is a large single, and there is a large family bathroom.
What makes this house special is the B1 energy rating,,achieved by features such as the three solar panels on the roof, said to supply hot water for at least 6-7 months of the year, high-spec insulation, and the vapour seal on all external walls, doors and windows, which makes the house airtight. There is a thermostat on each floor to control the oil-fired central heating run by an A-rated boiler.
The house has a large, south-facing garden.
Pros: Much lower fuel bills.
Cons: Whilst the fitted kitchen is included in the price, flooring and decoration come at an extra cost.
