Teglan, Castle Caereinion

Back

A four bedroom house with spacious living areas, designed to meet the demands of a large family, and built to a high specification to reduce running costs.

Teglan is a 4 bedroom family home with an integral garage. The house is part of a development of four houses, each unique in design. The house makes clever use of the roof space and with carefully placed windows to make the most of the views to the countryside. A small sun-room lies open plan to the living room, and a dining-kitchen area is located on the east side of the house.

The house has a high energy efficiency performance and utilises some of the key principles of Passivhaus, incorporating high levels of insulation and air-tightness, orientated for solar gain to hot water panels, and designed to minimise thermal bridging.

The house is approximately 180sq/m.
