Lacemakers House is a pioneering eco-home that generates more electricity than it consumes. Converted from an original lacemakers hall, our clients undertook a huge challenge to breathe new life into a derelict building. The result of which is the creation of a stunning individual property which is not only environmentally sustainable but provides for a stylish contemporary home. Undertaken by renowned local architect Julian Marsh, there has been an innovative use of recycled materials throughout. This provides both energy saving facets and at the same time distinctive design features such as the glass floors and walls which produce an abundance of natural light. Technically, the house has an extensive array of solar panels and a natural ventilation system which circulates both warm and cold air. The solar panels are linked to an `ImmerSUN` system that uses electricity to provide constant (free) hot water. Together with high levels of thermal insulation, externally and internally, the result is a stylish property with really high levels of energy efficiency. The background heating is gas. To take advantage of this unique setting, there are superb balcony views to the south together with a patio garden area.Believed to date back to the 1700`s, this is a rare freehold property which now includes adjoining land and planning permission for a 3 floor extension and private garden. Our clients have detailed records of gas and electric usage in the property since refurbishment. Both figures are approximately 50% less than those used in the generic/computer EPC calculation. Moreover, redirecting the surplus electricity generated from the solar panels means that hot water is a near-zero cost. The eco credentials of this unique property are such that only factual costings are relevant. These can be readily supplied. Award-winning eco-home
