New research has revealed that newbuild properties could save homeowners more than £3,000 on annual energy bills  because of the associated lower running costs.[1] With energy-efficiency in mind, award-winning housebuilder Burrington Estates will soon be adding its latest collection of homes to its impressive eco-conscious development EX3, in Topsham. Set to launch at the end of March, each sustainably constructed property in this latest phase will be equipped with a selection of high-quality, energy-efficient features to help residents live a greener lifestyle whilst also reducing their environmental impact and energy costs.

Enjoying a prime position within one of Devon’s most exclusive postcodes, EX3 has been a great success with a sold out first phase. Now adding a further 23 three- and four-bedroom homes of distinction to this sought after development, keen purchasers should act quickly to avoid disappointment. Ideal for a wide range of buyers, including downsizers, professional couples and second homeowners, these stylish and spacious properties will provide the best of contemporary living for residents. Topsham is situated on the edge of the Exe estuary, and benefits from Devonshire’s abundant natural beauty, picturesque outlook, and bucolic charm. Blending rurality with easy access to both the local town and Exeter’s thriving city centre, at EX3 residents can appreciate a lifestyle in balance.

Paving the way for a more sustainable approach to living, Burrington Estates is renowned for creating homes that have been constructed with a cleaner, more ecologically conscious world in mind. New homes at EX3 will be equipped with a range of sustainability boosting features to reduce excessive energy consumption, including electric car charging points, air-source heat pump generated underfloor heating to the ground floor, and solar PV. The use of renewable energy sources to fuel these homes both reduces residents’ negative environmental impact and living costs. In order to offset the carbon footprint of construction, the planting of ten trees per home through More:Trees will save an estimated 69 tonnes of carbon, reflecting the premium housebuilder’s eco-conscious approach to construction.

The innovative, contemporary architectural design of this new collection exudes the high level of quality for which Burrington Estates is renowned. Internally, these homes are equally outstanding, and feature a high level of specification for comfort and convenience. Expansive kitchen and dining spaces at EX3 are equipped with Quartz worktops, upstands, and splashback, as well as integrated appliances and an island with a built-in hob, ideal for cooking with the family.  Bi fold doors drench this space in natural light and extend out onto an enclosed rear garden.




Comfort continues in the living area which benefits from large windows that provide a scenic outlook. The sleek bathrooms in these homes at EX3 feature premium sanitary ware and Porcelanosa tiles for an elegant aesthetic. In the spacious master bedrooms, residents have access to ample storage and an ensuite, which is finished with a heated towel rail and LED downlights as standard.

Cotty Horvath, Sales and Marketing Manager at Burrington Estates comments: “We are delighted to be bringing this new phase of sustainable homes to EX3 in Topsham, a development which has already proven to be highly popular. Environmental preservation through the construction of eco-conscious homes is of key importance to us at Burrington Estates, and we are pleased to fulfil this goal to the very highest standard. Energy efficiency is a huge factor to consider when moving home, now more than ever, in part due to huge financial savings that energy efficient properties allow for residents. This new collection at EX3 will be in high demand, so we urge those interested to get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.’’
