Full description

This beautiful, light and spacious house has wonderful views across gently rolling countryside. The spire of Finborough Church can be seen 5 miles to the South West, and incredible skies and sunsets are a part of its unique setting. The house has been improved and extended over the last 10 years, having full insulation and double glazed windows, while retaining the charm of the original building. Outside, there is a large workshop and adjoining garden room with wood burning stove, where sunsets can be enjoyed in the summer. It is quiet and peaceful.

A flexible and economic heating system is a major feature. At its heart in a large inglenook fireplace, is a beautiful wood stove. This has a very well designed internal water jacket, heating the radiators and hot water. In the spring and autumn, when it is good to have a fire in the evening, the stove provides hot water pre-heated by a new solar thermal system. Hot water in the summer of 2015 was entirely provided by the sun, heating a 200 litre twin coil hot water tank. There is also an oil boiler which can be used as primary or back up heating, depending on what is required. Quarterly payments are made to the home owner under the government's Renewal Heat Incentive scheme, for the installation of the solar system.
