Bucks Hill, Chippenham
Bucks Hill is a beautiful country house set within a 17 acre estate near Chesham. The 7 bedroom main house, landscaped formal and lawned gardens are supplemented with a tennis court, Entertainment Barn, Stable Barn, walled garden, swimming pool, wild flower meadow, paddock and feature ponds.
The project comprises the full refurbishment of the main house and all five outbuildings, a new indoor swimming pool together with an inspirational client brief to meet net zero carbon for the whole estate.
Achieved with a ground source community heating and cooling system with full heat recovery (enabling domestic hot water and the swimming pool to be heated from the air conditioning in summer, and geothermal in winter), domestic water sourced from a new borehole and a ground mounted photovoltaic array offsetting the grid emissions.
