New Build - Grant Avenue
We are currently building this large detached house for a client in Edinburgh.
Set in mature grounds in the heart of Colinton's Conservation Area, the house boasts an indoor swimming pool, cinema room, formal living room, family room, formal dining room, a double height entrance hall with high level gallery, a library, snooker room, gym, two kitchens, a laundry, boot room,and 6 En-suite bedrooms.
A simple palette of materials will be used including natural sandstone, off-white coloured render, terracotta 'rosemary' roof tiles, aluminium composite window frames and aluminium rainwater goods.
The house will offer very high level of energy performance. The external envelope of the house will be insulated in excess of current requirements and will meet high levels of air tightness. Solar panels are proposed on part of the south facing roof plane. In addition, an air source heat pump and a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system are proposed.
