As energy bills continue to rise, developer Latimer marks the launch of Colina Mews by revealing that buyers here could benefit from a staggering price difference of over £4,000 a year on their energy bills if they opt for one of the development’s exclusive three-bedroom duplexes, compared to a typical second-hand property of the same size in the same Zone 3 location*.
A collection of just 18 modern duplexes, Colina Mews showcases an unmissable opportunity for London’s homebuyers looking for a contemporary new home. Comparing a home at Colina Mews with a local mid-terrace Victorian property of the same size has highlighted the incredible financial benefits that come with an efficient-rated Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Triple glazed windows which conserve energy, community combined heat and power source which utilises any wasted heat, low energy lighting and modern insulation has meant homes at Colina Mews with a floor area of 116 sq. m have been awarded a B level energy rating which translates into an annual energy bill cost of £1,161.72. In comparison, residents living in a nearby Victorian style property with a total floor area of 113sq. m will be facing a yearly outgoing of £5,335.40 as a result of the home’s D level energy rating.
Furthermore, buyers who reserve off-plan at Colina Mews will receive the added security of having their energy bills paid for two years**. Occupying a prime position within north London’s cosmopolitan Turnpike Lane, this final and premium phase of Latimer’s successful Evergreen development will be ready for occupation in January, 2023.
Krete Luca, Sales Director at Latimer, part of the Clarion Housing Group, comments: “In light of spiralling energy costs, new-build homes offer homebuyers the opportunity to make significant savings. Homes at Evergreen have been future-proofed to be as energy efficient as possible. The duplexes at Colina Mews offer a modern twist on the traditional Victorian townhouses found in the sought-after Harringay Ladder, without the prospect of costly renovations and sky-high energy bills. Green credentials such as triple-glazed windows, mechanical ventilation and heat interface units will keep the homes at a regulated temperature and in turn produce low bills for occupants.”
