‘Our home’s previous owners lived there for 30 years and it feels like it served other families well over almost 200 years. That’s what we fell in love with.

Our project goals were to modernise key areas and to achieve a dramatically lower energy footprint while maintaining the heritage and feel of this family home. Architects Cousins & Cousins, with Green Tomato Energy, developed a design to meet all our goals. The finished result feels classically Victorian, consumes a small fraction of the energy it originally did – near to German “Pasivhaus” standards – and is an absolute joy to be in.’
