view original post

Have you ever wasted hours browsing property magazines and daydreaming about your ideal home? If so, you’ll know beautiful houses usually come with a beastly price tag. But sometimes, you find a perfect home which can be more than a dream.

Nexa Fields on the outskirts of Exeter is a development of 40 new homes which blend luxurious style and fantastic levels of sustainability.

Here are seven reasons why one of these stunning properties could be your next home.

1. Luxury modern design

The first thing you notice when you step inside is how open and airy the homes feel. The wow factor comes from huge windows which flood every room with natural sunlight. Open-plan layouts give you an incredible feeling of freedom. And the high-spec integrated kitchens are worthy of any Instagram feed.

2. Zero Bills*

Octopus Energy has created a new tariff that means these super sustainable homes will pay zero energy bills*. If you’re moving from a regular dual-fuel home, that means an estimated saving of £3,458 per year. Take that, cost of living crisis.

3. A more affordable mortgage

As an added bonus, buying a Zero Bills* home means you can enjoy a great mortgage deal. Because you won’t be paying any energy bills, mortgage company Perenna will lend you up to six times your annual income and give you a discount on your monthly repayments.

4. Alive with green technology

On the roof, you’ll see a large array of solar panels. Walk round the side of the property and you’ll spot an air source heat pump. Peek closely at the windows and you’ll notice they’re all triple glazed. The cosy warm feeling? That’s the underfloor heating. It’s this combination of clever kit that makes the homes incredibly energy efficient.

5. Fantastic energy efficiency

If you’ve bought a house recently, you’ll have seen an EPC chart telling you how energy efficient it is. On a scale that usually goes from 1 to 100, the homes at Nexa Fields have a rating of 129A.

6. Free from stamp duty, bills and fees

To make sustainable living accessible to as many people as possible, housebuilder Verto is offering a selection of homes at Nexa Fields with no stamp duty or conveyancing fee, plus zero water bills and council tax for the first year. Added together with Zero Bills.*

7. Zero carbon

Not only do these homes save you money, they’ll also help to save the planet. By generating more clean solar energy than they consume, these homes have a dwelling emission rate of minus 3.8. In other words, living here is like planting trees every year to absorb greenhouse gases. Compare that with the average home’s score of plus 6.0 and you can sleep easy knowing you’re doing your bit for the environment.

*Terms and conditions apply. Verto Homes guarantees zero energy bills for at least five years and all homes at Nexa Fields are set up with Octopus to benefit from the initiative. If you exceed the “Fair Use Allowance” (10,000kwh), you will be billed at the Flexible Octopus unit rate, with billing done on an annual basis. For further information, see vertohomes.com/zero-bills
