Th area is lovely, we can walk in lovely green areas without having to leave the estate, and the canal at your doorstep is such a bonus!
No fireplaces no, but to be honest we don’t even miss it now, is amazing how much space they take up, and the house is so quiet inside as there is nowhere for wind to come in! We’re right by the building site and you barely notice most of the noise.
I know some residents here have put in electric fireplaces, but we honestly won’t bother, we don’t even notice!
Even with the heat off, we sit consistently at 22/23 inside temperature, so warm and cosy!
FYI, all A rated houses down have fireplaces AFAIK, can’t be A rated with a fireplace as wind and cold can get in that way, and it’s not air tight
