Lake District development '70% more sustainable than typical new-builds'

egg Homes Viver Green

A new property development in the Lake District is aiming to be among the UK's most sustainable.

The 19-home Viver Green development by egg Homes includes The Yan, a design which it says is up to 70 per cent more sustainable than a typical British new-build home, offering expected average daily electricity costs of 71p, a 75 per cent cut compared to a standard home.

The construction of the four and five-bedroom houses (£445,000 to £800,000) features a super-insulating concrete framework, triple-glazed aluminium windows and doors, underfloor heating, solar panels, a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system and smart home controls.

As well as balconies, new residents will be able to harvest from a community orchard, also used by local mental health charity and organic farm Growing Well, while a traditional hay meadow and mature woodland will be maintained to protect rare wildlife habitats, says egg Homes.
