About the Event

Visit the UK's most energy-efficient Victorian home. The Zetland Road Passive Homes are Europe's first Passive House Plus retrofit and will have zero energy bills!

Ecospheric Developments is showcasing a pair of Victorian townhouses that combine the beauty and character of a period property with the world's highest standards of energy efficiency.

Beautifully renovated throughout to the highest of standards; Ingleside & Woodleigh promise to produce incredibly low bills with minimal maintenance and at 125 years old still outperforms over 99% 0f new builds and certainly any property of its era.

Whereas a similar property may cost £4000 in bills and £2000 on maintenance, Ingleside & Woodleigh are projected to have energy bills of £zero with negligible maintenance costs to boot!

Due to the Passive House fabric first approach, the houses remain comfortable and warm year round without a central heating system. The team have also reached way beyond the set requirements, embodying sustainability at every turn with low maintenance durable solutions and the incorporation of high quality, natural, breathable materials culminating in a petrochemical free building fabric.

About this event:

This is a self-guided tour. Upon entry, you will be given a map and brochure about the home and you will be free to explore the house at your own pace. Members of the Ecospheric team will be on-hand to answer questions. Refreshments will be served.


There are stairs to enter the house as well as 3 flights of stairs within the house. Hallways and stairs may be crowded at times. Visitors with restricted mobility may find this property difficult to traverse.


There are toilets onsite.
