Hilgrove Mews, our first Zero Carbon Smart Home community, is pushing the boundaries of sustainable living. Set amongst an oasis of rich green landscaping just moments from Tolcarne Beach in Newquay, this revolutionary development will offer a mixture of 46 contemporary apartments, townhouses and semi-detached dwellings once complete, with construction having commenced as of Spring 2016.
Within these innovative Smart Homes, full home automation combined with super insulation create an efficient living space like no other, wasting neither energy nor space. From the soft, recycled plastic bottle carpet, heated from below, right up to the EcoLED lighting in the ceiling that floods the homes with controllable, ambient light, every aspect of Hilgrove Mews is hand picked for ultimate comfort, convenience and sustainability.
Here at Verto Homes, we’re committed to minimising our impact on the environment. These buildings uphold that promise, putting emphasis on sustainable material choices and energy efficiency. On the outside: fully recyclable cedar cladding with low embodied carbon. Hidden inside: mechanical ventilation with heat recovery systems, supplying preheated, fresh air, cleverly integrated with ground source heat pumps that quietly absorb ambient heat from the ground and move it inside, all without consuming any fossil fuels and powered by an integrated solar roofing system for ultimate self-sufficiency.
Finally, the element that proves these Zero Carbon Smart Homes really are the homes of the future: complete home automation. Every feature listed above and many more can be managed in real time with our app, Vesta, wherever you are in the world. Whether you want to heat the house in advance of your arrival or simply want to close the blinds without leaving the comfort of your bed, you can do it with Vesta. And, by automating the processes, your Smart Home can do it for you, every day.
