Freeman Homes’ newest residential development in Northleach has been built with a commitment to sustainable construction.
The development is due for completion in the spring and comprises five detached Cotswold properties overlooking the Leach Valley and countryside to the east and south of the town. Working with Bath architect Nash Partnership, the houses all feature Cotswold stone, slate roofs and timber windows that echo the region’s architecture.
Freeman Homes joint CEO Luke Freeman commented: “Each property has been designed to make the most of its positioning within the development with consideration given to the relationship with adjacent houses and where sunlight falls at different times of day.”
Dedicated to ‘Building for a Better Future’, the Gloucestershire-based property developer is committed to sustainable construction. All Northleach properties have been built using a timber frame construction – the timber sourced from managed coniferous forests. Timber buildings are thermally-efficient and remain warm in winter, reducing heating cost. In addition, energy-efficient appliances have been incorporated into the properties including the installation of clean-burn technology Worcester Bosch Greenstyle woodburners, Quooker boiling water taps, and LED recessed spot lighting.
