2 Summercourt Gardens is an impressively architecturally designed house constructed of mellow brick elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The house has been constructed to be also maintenance free and includes incredibly high levels of insulation providing exceptionally low running costs. Every wall, including all the internal walls and doors have been insulated. There is thicker than normal plaster board and traditional plaster has being used rather than dry lining, which is common in most newer houses. Thicker oak doors have been used in the bedrooms and lounge to further improve the sound insulation. There are double glazed windows with Argon filled glass units. To further improve the energy efficiency of the property, there is LED lighting that has been used throughout including stainless steel lighting externally. The heating and hot water system is supplied by a heat pump via a wet underfloor system on the ground floor and the air source pump is used for conventional radiators on the first floor. Water heating is also supplied by the heat pump and hot water is stored in a large pressurised cylinder situated in the boiler room. This arrangement gives an ample supply of both pressure balanced hot and cold water. In addition, the air source heat pump provides the heat source to thermostatically controlled towel rails in the bathrooms. Towel rails are individually controlled and can be utilised in the summer months without the central heating system being switched on. The house also benefits from a heat recovery ventilation system, which extracts air from the kitchen and bathrooms and exchanged to create fresh air being brought in from outside, which is then distributed to the living areas of the property.
