WHY LIMEBECK CLOSE? An exclusive development of just three homes on the fringe of the popular village of Scotby, Limebeck Close has been built and finished to the highest standard. Within a short walk of the amenities of Scotby Village including, a primary school, pub and Post Office shop the property is not only well located in this regard but is well connected for access to the wider region with the M6 and A69 being just a few minutes drive and Carlisle railway station on the West Coast Mainline and Wetheral station on the Carlisle-Newcastle line both equally as accessible. For those looking to enjoy outdoor pursuits, Carlisle Golf Club is within a mile of the property and the Lake District National Park with less than 30 minutes drive to the south. Hardrian's Wall, the Solway Coast AONB and the south of Scotland are also within reach.
PASSIVE HOUSE DESIGN Designed by renowned local architects Black Box, 2 Limebeck Close is one of Cumbria's first new build homes designed to Passive House specifications which use orientation and simple "passive" design – using sunshine, shade, ventilation and building materials – to avoid the need for fossil fuels for traditional central heating and hot water production. The only technical input being solar roof panels linked to the electrical circuits for hot water storage and air source heat pumps to feed the underfloor heating system. The house uses simple solar gain and external thermal insulation to retain heat all year round with solid wall construction and no cavities or cold spots. By only using the highest levels of insulation, airtightness and building materials, a passive home can use up to 90% less energy than a standard home.Internal air is circulated through filters and mixed with fresh air to help maintain a steady temperature even in the middle of winter and to assist with cooling in summer.
ACCOMMODATION Not only have these homes been built to the highest energy efficiency standards but the quality of materials throughout has also been elevated to a higher level. From the large aluminium framed triple glazed windows to the zinc roof, gutters and downspouts right through to the quality German kitchens, appliances and Quartz worktops the attention to detail across the build has been superb. The impressive entrance hall and stairs with a full height ceiling and gallery landing is only the beginning. The living room, which is open to the dining area and kitchen is flooded with light thanks to windows on all sides, also benefits from solid wood flooring and a multi-fuel stove. The kitchen, complete with a range of quality integrated appliances is accessible from both the hallway and the dining area. There is a good size utility room with rear door and a ground floor shower room to complement the ground floor bedroom/study. To the first floor are three double bedrooms, the largest being having a large picture window overlooking open fields and an en-suite shower room. There are two further double rooms and a generous family bathroom with freestanding bath and double shower. In addition there is a large boarded loft space, which runs the full length of the property and has ample headroom. Externally the property benefits from a beautifully landscaped and spacious plot which is afforded good privacy. Mature planting has been utilised to create an instant impact. There is a detached garage, with electric door and EV charging point. The solar panels for the property are located on the garage roof. There is an area of lawned garden to the front of the property as well as another to the rear where there is also a wonderful private space to the side of the garage suitable for a shed/garden office or hot tub. The property is one of three in the development and the last one available for sale.
N.B. The property is now ready for immediate occupation.
