Our Trevalia Farm project is in the small hamlet of Swanton, on the high ground overlooking West Peckham & Mereworth.
This development comprises two bungalows being constructed to meet the high energy efficient requirements of level 4 for the Code for Sustainable Homes. The bungalows are each approximately 3700ft² with panoramic views of the Medway Valley. Each home will have a double garage and parking for 3-4 additional cars.
Plot 1 is 0.73 acres, Plot 2 is 0.53 acres and there is an additional paddock of 0.6 acres that could be sold with either bungalow.
The scheme includes the following energy saving and zero carbon technology:-
Solar hot water panels
Photovoltaic cells for electricity generation
High levels of insulation
Log burner in sitting room
Rain water harvesting for WC flushing and garden watering
Sun pipe lighting
The properties are being built to exceed standards of the current Building Regulations and will be classed as carbon neutral under the 2009 SAP calculation methology and will provide some very low running costs.
