Sustainable living in the heart of Somerset
The first sustainable housing community for Yeovil, The Glove Factory presents a rare opportunity to switch to a lower cost, low-energy lifestyle. In this unique development you’ll find everything you need to get the most out of life without taking quite so much out of the planet.
With its unique blend of superb low & zero carbon homes, The Glove Factory offers a chance to enjoy life in an exclusive but sustainable community, where everything you need, including Ninesprings country park, is right on your doorstep. There’s a wide range of low carbon, low energy homes, apartments, and commercial units to choose from, with many homes benefiting from biomass and solar thermal heating, not forgetting free electricity generated by photovoltaic roof panels .
If you want to work from home, integrated workspaces in many Glove Factory homes provide flexibility. It’s a perfect way to cut the commute when you prefer not to make the journey to the office.
There are 13 Code certified homes at The Glove Factory, all with excellent levels of sustainability. Two reach Code 4, ten are built to Code 5, and one reaches Code 6, which will be Somerset’s first zero carbon home.
Live data on the overall carbon reduction and energy generated by all Code certified homes willl be available to view here.
The cutting-edge zero-carbon Code 6 house has now been completed. Part of the contruction was followed by a webcam.
