Pwllpridd is a traditionally brick built farm house. Constructed during the early 1950’s to replace the original stone farm house which is still standing some 700 metres away. Being built on a hill side there is a gradient pathway with four steps leading to the front door. The front garden slopes to the car parking area where there is a retaining wall with a drop of 1.5M. The rear garden is laid to lawn and has a large stoned terrace area where there is a table and seating area, all on one level. Automatic lighting illuminates the front parking area and path. Upon entry there is a spacious hallway leading to the breakfast/dining room and kitchen, doorway measuring 740mm. The flooring to the ground floor is quarry tiled and oak with no steps or raised thresholds. There are three entrance/exit doors to the ground floor each has a step of 200mm. Gradual inclined carpeted stairs lead to a spacious landing and bedrooms, all first floors rooms have fitted carpet and no threshold steps. All bedroom doorways, and Spring room en-suite, have a minimum opening of 740mm, the Summer room en-suite doorway is smaller – 660mm. Each en-suite has a WC, wash basin and thermostatic shower, fitted with a fixed head. All ceiling heights are a minimum of 2.4M. All doors have a latch and lock for security. Smoke alarm and emergency backup lighting fitted to the bedrooms and a fire extinguisher can be found in the hallway. All rooms are well lit and have ample electric power sockets.

Sustainability is important to making sure that we have and will continue to have, the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment.
During the extensive refurbishment programme Peter & Maureen incorporated many new technologies into their development plans. They have achieved an Energy Performance Certificate, (EPC) rating “B”, by insulating the roof space and walls to the latest high specifications. Installing double glazed windows & doors, having an “A” rated design, following the original metal window pattern provides not only the best insulation but, enhances the character of the property. Technologies such as solar panels fitted to the roof provide hot water for the showers, bath and other outlets, saving 80% of energy. Installation of a ground source heat pump provides a constant source of heat to the efficient heating system which is maintained throughout the accommodation, backed by the Government Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI scheme) saving 60% of energy. Generating electricity through Photo Voltaic (PV) cells provides electricity to the supply company, whilst receiving payment through the “feed in tariff”.
Pwllpridd has its own domestic water supply, where water permeates through the hillside, collected in special potable cisterns, and then passes through particle and ultra-violet purification filters, ensuring that the water is pure, clean and safe to drink. When it comes to efficiency in the garden, all household uncooked food waste and garden waste is recycled through composting and returned to the soil. A selection of quality vegetables are grown each year in a large polytunnel, extending the growing period and providing fresh seasonal vegetables for the kitchen.
