The Passive House concept was developed in Germany over 25 years ago to combat rising fuel costs and global warming, and has spread to over 40 countries around the world. The construction method is designed to provide an exceptionally high level of energy efficiency and comfort. This is achieved using airtightness, high level thermal insulation, a thermal bridge free design, ventilation with heat recovery, and highly efficient triple glazed windows. Scientific investigation has been carried out on hundreds of existing passive houses and has found that they allow for heating and cooling related energy savings of up to 90% compared with typical housing stock, and over 75% saving on the average new build property.
This bespoke development of three detached 4 bedroom passive houses is situated on the outskirts of the eminently popular village of Colwall on the western fringes of the Malvern Hills. The properties have been constructed using the latest passive house construction methods, using a highly insulated timber frame with deep insulated walls, under a slate tiled roof. There are triple glazed windows and glazed doors and a heating system using air source heat pumps with highly efficient heat recovery. This ventilates each space throughout the property with filtered and temperature controlled fresh air, providing a healthy and comfortable environment with a stable temperature, with minimal fluctuations. The electricity used to operate the heat pumps is partly off set with southwest facing solar panels fitted to the rear face of the roof.
The development lies just outside the settlement boundary and is surrounded by an attractive orchard at the rear which adjoins part of Colwall village cricket ground, and farmland beyond. The village hall and new primary school are a short walk away, and the further extensive amenities the village has to offer are less than 15 minutes walk, including the main line train station.
Colwall is a well served village within the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It offers a myriad of amenities, including, a well-stocked village store; chemist; Post Office; doctors’ surgery; hotel; café; butchers shop and two pubs. With its highly regarded independent schools, as well as a popular village primary school, this sought after location is just 3.5 miles from Great Malvern, offering more extensive retail and cultural opportunities.
Colwall has a main line railway station, offering direct services to Birmingham New Street and London Paddington. The M50 (Jct 2) and M5 (Jct 7) motorways are approximately 15mins and 30mins drive respectively.
The properties have a stylish modern exterior finish specifically designed to adhere to the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty design guide, using an approved palette of colours and finishes, comprising part rendered and part timber clad walls. This ensures the properties sit well within their stunning rural landscape.
Internally the properties have a modern layout with an entrance hall; a large dual aspect living / dining room which has large sliding doors and overlooks the rear garden; a well proportioned kitchen breakfast room with adjoining utility room which has an external side access; and a downstairs WC. Enclosed stairs lead to landing which leads of each of the bedrooms and a family bathroom. Most of the bedrooms enjoy vaulted ceilings, and the master bedroom has the benefit of an en suite shower room.
Outside there is a bike store adjoining the front porch, a shared driveway leading to carports (plots 1 & 3 only) and parking, and to the rear large gardens with post and rail fencing and hedging overlooking a pretty orchard.
The properties will include fitted kitchens and bathrooms, leaving flooring finishes for the incoming buyer to complete, so each property can be customised to the new owner's tastes and preferences.
