Our clients purchased a 3 bedroom bungalow on a substantial plot in the small village of Ambaston in South Derbyshire. Rather than refurbish and extend the bungalow, it was decided to demolish and replace with a new house. The new dwelling embraces renewable technology and has a biomass boiler linked to an underfloor heating system. A rainwater harvesting system has also been installed. The new dwelling is of a traditional design with a contemporary interior which allows for a smooth transition to outdoor living.
