Heating and cooling is provided by a reverse cycle air conditioning system linked to a trio of pressurised vertical closed loops to a depth of 80 metres known as a Heat Pump which uses the ground as a constant temperature heat exchanger, a source of ??~non-fossil fuel??T energy. The roof timbers are substantial and hardwood, the roof space is insulated, the floors are cork. The windows on the front of the house are double-glazed. This is a very energy efficient home.
The property is entered over a cattle grid via a remote-controlled security gate. A security system protects the house.
The owners and past tenants have all loved this house with a special fondness of not only the magnificent views but the underground heat pump and cork floors. Under normal circumstances it would be a reluctant sale however due to the owners moving overseas it is time another lucky family get to experience all the joy this home brings.
