Edgefield - an eco-build home in sought-after coastal location

Published: 28/09/2020

Here at Sowerbys we are privileged to market some incredible properties and this one is certainly no exception.

Edgefield is an eco-build home using passive house technology, finished to an exceptional standard with remarkable attention to detail throughout.

This house should be all about its beautiful location in the sought-after location of Burnham Overy Staithe with stunning coastal views, but it’s extraordinary for another reason…

As an Eco build, Edgefield was designed, conceived, and created by its current owners using Passive House technology.

This is a term that is defined by a house that requires very little energy to achieve a comfortable temperature all year round, making conventional heating and air conditioning obsolete.

This has been achieved in Edgefield using a ground source heat pump and Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery, allowing the air temperature to be set and then circulated around the property, with clean air being replaced in each room around every twenty minutes.

On a gloriously sunny day, if the house starts to warm above the temperature you have set, the blinds close automatically to shade the interior.

The only reason that the property isn’t a full passive house is partly due to its location, because if it was completely sealed, you would be unable open the windows and doors to enjoy the pure and clean sea air.

Not only is Edgefield run almost entirely on green energy, it’s also an intelligent house – using an iPad you can adjust the lighting and blinds in each room, either individually or for the entire house.

What the owners have created here is not just a practical home with well thought out rooms, accommodation and living space, but by the materials used, the energy it will continue to save and the amazing attention to detail, they have made a house for the future.
