Sustainable Living at Barrelmans Point
Located on one of the most scenic coastal areas in the UK, is Shotley Peninsula. This idyllic village is home to our waterside development, Barrelmans Point. Situated on the former HMS Ganges site,
Barrelmans Point is an impressive collection of nearly 300 carefully designed homes, surrounded by stunning natural landscapes. With a focus on sustainable living, our design team carefully selected features that would provide a better way of living, for both you and the environment.
Air Source Heat Pumps
On average, an air source heat pump can save up to £1,500 per year on household bills whilst also saving up to 4,300kg per year in Co2 emissions, making this option not only good for your expenses but another step towards a healthier and happier planet. This low-maintenance product is the perfect way to heat your home and water, which is why we chose to install one at every home on the site.
Electric Car Charging Point
All homes at Barrelmans Point come equipped with 7kW electric car charging points, allowing you to conveniently plug in overnight and wake up to a fully charged car without needing to detour to a local charging station, saving both time and money. Alongside these benefits, having a car charging point is now seen as a key feature when purchasing a home, therefore, increasing the value of your home.
New Build Energy Efficiency
Our homes are designed with sustainability at the forefront, whether that is in the floor plan, the site location or the materials used to ensure energy efficiency, with homes hitting a minimum EPC Rating of B. Additions such as high-quality insulation, thermal-rated block work and air source heat pumps enable your home to run sustainably with an average saving of £3,117.85 per year, around £260 per month on your bills compared to a second-hand home.
Open plan living
Each home on our Shotley Peninsula site is carefully designed for the way you live. By opting for an open-plan living space, we’ve allowed an abundance of natural light to flood in, creating a calm and airy feel in your coastal home and to allow the increased exposure to natural daylight to improve your well-being. The flexibility in an open place space is ideal too, with the ability to soft zone areas with furniture rather than divide them with walls, creating a brighter and larger feel to your home.
The Coastal Life
The idyllic location of Shotley Peninsula is located at the southern end of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Its peaceful atmosphere and fresh sea air make it the perfect place to live, away from the hustle of city life. Not to mention, studies have shown that living by the coast has lots of benefits for your mental health – improved mood, less stress and better sleep quality.
This welcoming residential community is sure to provide you with a life full of comfort and happiness in your home. And with a choice of on-site amenities for you to enjoy from a resident’s gym to a café, library and more, make your next move a sustainable one with Barrelmans Point.
The first phase of homes are now available to reserve and move in summer 2023. Our luxury homes come with all the high-quality, modern specifications and appliances that you need.
