Bath eco-home features solid wood flooring

An eco-friendly house in Bath is on the market for just under £3 million. It is classed as an eco-friendly house because of its energy efficient technology and the use of sustainable building materials, which include polished wood floors.

The home was designed in 1997 as an environmentally friendly home. It has many energy-saving features, including underfloor heating, a “K” glass pyramid roof for solar gain and heat recovery ventilation. The roof is covered in grass that has a self-watering irrigation system. The grass has also insulation properties that help keep the building warm.

The house used lots of natural Bath stone in its construction, and it has floor-to-ceiling windows for maximum light. Solid wood was chosen for the floors, as it is a natural, eco-friendly material that uses timber from sustainable forests. Wood is also easily recyclable.

The marketing literature describes the home:

“Meticulous attention to detail has been paid to every aspect of the spacious design and ensures maximum quality of light throughout the day. The accommodation, which is arranged on a variety of levels over two floors is well planned and spacious.”

The home is at Widcombe Hill, a sought-after elevated location that has magnificent views over Bath.

Wood flooring in Cheshire and the Wirral is a popular way to add sustainable materials to existing property, as well as to add as much as 10% to the value of a building. Solid wood is a good investment as it lasts for many decades.
