The design philosophy for the elegant development of one and two bedroom apartments plus a lodge house is based on total simplicity to achieve the required clean lines, freedom of build design and minimise pipework both inside and out.
The majority of the properties, priced from £180,000 up to £350,000, sold within just weeks of being put on the market.
The Monterey was selected for its stylish finned metal design, virtually silent operation and advanced levels of control. The heaters were installed by Sussex electrical contractors SDP.
Copperwood director Stephen Briegel said, ‘Copperwood Court is in a perfect location for City commuters and as an investment purchase so we needed to cater for discerning tastes and that means attention to detail in all aspects. Using electric heating meant that we didn’t have to compromise the design in any way and so we were free of design flueing issues and ugly excess pipework both inside and out which is not only practical but a big part of the aesthetic appeal for our buyers.
‘The Monterey range was a straightforward choice as it combines all the elements of control we needed to help meet the EPC rating, it’s unobtrusive and it looks good too.’
A highly sophisticated electronic thermostat, accurate to +/-0.3 degrees Celsius is integral to the Monterey range. It ensures room temperature and comfort levels are maintained, minimising overshoot and temperature drift for an optimum energy-efficient performance. At Copperwood Court, the optional plug-in electronic timers have also been selected to allow total zoned control of the heating system.
The elegant double fronted buildings, linked by a cycle store, are built in a classic style using local stock brick and slate roof tiles. Inside, as well as the Dimplex heating system, the kitchen is fitted with contemporary units by award winning Manhatten Kitchens of West Sussex with Bosch and Zanussi appliances and a Dimplex chrome towel rail in the bathroom.
Added commuter appeal is the proximity to local shops and restaurants and that the mainline railway station is just a few minutes’ walk away, providing access to London in under an hour and a journey of only 15 minutes to Brighton.
