The West House, Crediton
A simply stunning brand new four bedroom residence on the Western side of the town
A fabulous newly built four bedroom detached contemporary home located on a large plot to the town’s Western edge; within a level walk of the High Street and all it’s amenities, benefiting from enclosed gardens, integrated garage and ample off street parking.
The property has been built to an exceptionally high standard throughout, and particular attention has been placed on making it a very energy efficient house with the installation of an air source pump, and solar panels. The solar panels will provide around 70% of the hot water, and there is under floor heating throughout the house with each room individually controlled. The inset halogen spotlights use LED technology to further reduce energy bills.
Internally the property provides spacious family accommodation, which has been well designed and thought through. Entering the property is an impressive staircase entrance hall with oak flooring and an oak finished staircase with large feature window.
The kitchen/dining room serves as a real feature of the property, and has been planned as such with flexible entertaining space, well equipped modern units providing dishwasher, wine cooler and large American fridge/freezer, granite working surfaces, German oak flooring and a contemporary wood burner on a glass hearth. The dining area faces west with views over the Western edge of the town and open countryside beyond.
Downstairs, on the lower ground floor, is a most adaptable room, although designed as the master bedroom, it could also serve as a home office, or annexe as it has a private entrance door off the driveway. This room benefits from an en-suite shower room and door through to the main house.
The living room is of very generous proportions with dual aspect and double doors leading out to a partly covered patio and the rear garden. On the first floor are three further spacious bedrooms, the largest benefiting from an en-suite shower room.
The family bathroom has been thoughtfully designed with a good use of space. Each bathroom has been individually and tastefully finished with high quality sanitary ware, and Porcelanosa wall and floor tiling.
The property is a real one off with a true wow factor, and has been constructed by a small local developer well known for their use of renewable and sustainable energy sources. The build also comes with the benefit and peace of mind of a ten year NHBC warranty.

Energy Efficiency in the West House
The West House has been designed with as much emphasis on energy efficiency as possible. By using simple, effective and renewable processes your home will be helping the environment, future generations, and of course, your household expenditure.
Air Source Heat Pump
An air source heat pump collects and utilises thermal energy from the outside air to heat the home and provide domestic hot water. It does this in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from the inside. It is capable of extracting heat from the air, even when the outside temperature is as low as -20C, it then converts this for use in a heating and hot water system. The heat generated is then used to warm water for the under floor heating system and domestic hot water. The under floor heating uses the benefit of radiant rising heat and low water flow temperatures to heat the floor surface, making it an even and more controllable heat, and a very efficient system indeed.
The West House has been fitted with solar thermal collectors which are capable of supplying up to 70% of a average households hot water needs reducing expensive hot water bills. The tubes are up to 30% more effective than standard flat plates, and work from dawn until dusk throughout the year, even in cold, windy and humid conditions.
Of course the West House has been designed to incorporate the highest standard of sound and thermal insulation, as well as in the walls and roof void, the windows that have been chosen provide extra levels of sound and heat insulation.
Throughout the West House you will notice the inset spotlighting with LED lamps, these run at 3 watts, saving you electricity and money. They also provide a clear, bright light and don’t need warming up like most energy saving lighting systems.
