Leading homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties is proud to offer a beautiful collection of properties at its Lion Park development in Hambrook, which not only represent an attractive place to live, but also help to keep homeowners’ energy bills in check.

According to the Energy Savings Trust, households can save up to £250 per year on their utility bills if they think more consciously about how they use energy within the home. Due to the rising cost of energy, Taylor Wimpey is urging house hunters to think about choosing one of the company’s brand new homes at Lion Park as the properties boast being up to 15 per cent more energy efficiency than a standard new build home.

Sarah Pasco, regional sales director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, states: ‘As our new homes at Lions Park are classed as Code Level 3 by the Code for Sustainable Homes, they boast superior ‘green’ qualities over regular new build houses, which mean our residents could literally save hundreds of pounds on their annual energy bills.’

The stunning range of one, two, three and four bedroom house types have been carefully designed to incorporate state of the art building technologies. Some of the features include heat recovery systems to circulate warm air and highly energy efficient interior and exterior lighting.

Each property is completed with a water butt to enable homeowners to use rain water in the garden, plus each kitchen hosts built in recycle bins, meaning unsightly recycling boxes are a thing of the past.

In addition, the overall development boasts several other green credentials. Taylor Wimpey is actively encouraging residents at Lion Park to leave the car behind and use a bicycle, as the company has built a handy cycle store on site.

There are a number of green open spaces for homeowners to enjoy and the development, which overlooks open countryside, is surrounded by mature trees and a retained hedgerow.

Sarah concludes: ‘Lion Park is one of those great developments which combine the essential ingredients for modern living – with the added assurance of those all important green credentials, which help our homebuyers to keep their monthly outgoing costs down.’

Prices at Lion Park currently start from just £182,000 for a one bedroom coach house with separate study, from £300,000 for a three bedroom home and from £295,000 for a four bedroom design.
