Sustainable living gains ground with luxury eco-homes from Taylor Wimpey España

Many UK citizens are warming to the idea of being more environmentally conscious when purchasing a new property.  As eco-homes are not just for those in search of an organic lifestyle, luxury homebuilders such as Taylor Wimpey España are delivering them too. A variety of eco-friendly developments are now bursting onto the market for the growing number of international buyers flocking to Spain.

According to CBRE Residential, eco-friendly credentials can increase the value of a property by up to 38% as 8 out 10 UK buyers are ready to pay more for an eco-home. Going green is increasingly an experience that home buyers want to take, even if it means digging deeper into the pockets.

Committed to always delivering what clients want and remaining cutting-edge, leading Spanish housebuilder Taylor Wimpey España is expending their portfolio of eco-friendly homes to meet these demands.

“It has taken time and careful research to create the perfect collection of homes situated in an eco-friendly environment where potential buyers can enjoy healthy living.”

Launched on the Costa del Sol, in one of the most exclusive areas of Benahavis, unique Botanic residence is comprised of 92 homes in accordance with the criteria of sustainability, ecology and bioclimatic architecture.

The luxury eco-friendly homes are constructed at different ground levels and the buildings, which hold a B energy certificate, are crowned by spacious penthouses with a modern design and spectacular solariums. All rooms are south-facing so the large open windows can enjoy stunning views from the sea and be open to the autumn sun.
