In recent years, the owner has invested heavily in converting the property into an all electric home and upgraded the insulation of the property to include an external wall insulation wrap and additional insulation to the loft space. Independently timed and thermostatically controlled radiators provide flexible heating to the property, and all of the windows have been upgraded to upvc double glazed units. The property also has been fitted with solar panels which were purchased by the owner and currently used on a transferable income tariff with EON, of which the owner receives generous income which currently has been covering the costs of their own electric use. Any buyer will receive the benefit of this in the same way.
