Low Energy – Custom Build, Stamford

We recently had the privilege to work on a new private development, situated on a stunning site in Rutland.

Set on a 185-acre estate, the development site has recently undergone extensive renovations, with interior design and wellness at the forefront of its makeover.

The luxury development of 42 homes, sees each property sit on a generously sized plot, overlooking the surrounding golf course, lakes and woodland, Residents have access to the golf course, club & Café as well as plenty of shared amenities.

The area is saturated in British heritage, surrounded by the historic counties of Rutland and Lincolnshire, boasting many quaint villages with cottages, thatched roofs, cobbled pavements and country pubs.

As well as offering a luxury experience, the team at Timber Innovations also understood the need for the project to hit a number of climate friendly goals.

We took a ‘Fabric First’ approach that ensured the most eco and thermally efficient homes were built in a climate friendly way with cost-effective life cycle costs and U-values of 0.15.

Insulation played a massive part in a building’s energy efficiency – we used Class A non-combustible insulation made from recycled glass and Knauf Supafil®.

Further features of the build included full timber frames with glulam structural elements, exterior cladding from English larch and air sourced heat pumps.

Each residence offers a four- or five-bedroom home that overlook the lakes and golf course and are within a short distance of the club’s facilities.

The homes, all with an English countryside vibe, are clad with Larch timber sat upon a Stamford stone base, in keeping with the same honey-coloured masonry used in the old town. They feature an open plan, with natural finishes that incorporate an indoor-outdoor flow to take advantage of the beautiful landscape.
