The homes in Cualanor are built to the highest standards in the market place delivering quality, comfort, sustainability, versatility and affordability. The qualities imbedded in the houses ensure that they are working for the occupiers all year round to minimise running cost and deliver an excellent quality environment within. The heat gains available from the sun and appliances within the house are collected and retained to minimise the demand needed from the high efficiency heating system. In tandem with this the heat recovery ventilation (HRV) system ensures excellent air quality, purging excess humidity and constantly pulling the indoor air down to a 500 ppm of carbon dioxide. During the summer months the bypass feature of the HRV allows the system to assist in cooling in the warmer months.The high quality insulation and argon filled glazing keeps the heat in during the winter and the excess solar gain out in the summer.

The elegant lounge also at ground level provides a relaxing space while an additional entertainment room at first floor offers a second extra-large reception room for the family.
