Mill Leat, West Tanfield

Price: £297,500

Mill Leat has a rare ‘A’ rated energy performance certificate. The property and its equally energy-efficient neighbour, Riverview, benefit from free heat and electricity for the next nine years. The owner of the homes installed a biomass boiler and a hydro-electric system, which utilises the power of the river. So heat from the renewable source will be supplied free of charge to both properties until June, 2027 when the property owners will be billed for heat consumption. That cost will not exceed the equivalent average price of natural gas.

Riverside View, West Tanfield, comes with a full-length balcony.

Free electricity will be supplied whenever the large hydro-electric system is running. However, when the system is not operational in summer time, then the properties will be connected to the mains and power will come via the National Grid with Tanfield Mill Energy as the supplier and billing agent.

Estate agent Georgian Buchanan of Buchanan Mitchell says: “Based upon previous running history this will mean that there will be no charge for electricity for around eight months of the year.”

Mill Leat has a reception hall leading to an open-plan living space. The master bedroom and en-suite feature handcrafted furniture by Peter Thompson of York. The property has a water filtration system, mechanical heat recovery and ventilation and underfloor heating. There is also a private balcony and bridge with views of the River Ure, riverside gardens and designated parking.
