R&A Contracts has begun work at Ledyatt Farm, a luxury five-unit development on the outskirts of Dundee.
The properties will include, air source heat pumps, electric car charging points, solar panels with battery storage units for personal usage and under floor heating on the ground floor.
According to the developer, German inspired interior design with views from the living room make this a real statement development.
Each house has been designed to ensure living spaces are oriented either South or Southwest facing to maximise solar gains and enhance the quality of the internal environment. Large, bi-folding doors have been incorporated to provide access to South facing ‘courtyards’ to connect with the landscape and blur the distinction between indoors and outdoors.
This connection with the surrounding landscape is further enhanced with strategically placed ‘landscape’ windows, which serve as picture frames to celebrate stunning key views over farmland to the Sidlaw hills, each house named after the corresponding hill viewpoint in the Sidlaw range.
All the homes will be built to the highest specification and will have an A rating for energy performance. The primary heating, the air source system, is backed up by solid fuel stoves and imported triple glazed timber framed windows provide outstanding insulation. The expected completion date for the first phase of summer 2024.
