A batch of “tired” former MoD homes are due to go on the market within months following a significant refurbishment project.

Developers Annington, the firm responsible for almost 60,000 former military homes, will launch a new development of five four-bedroom homes at Marlborough Close, just off Horton Road in Devizes, in spring 2024.

The refurbishment project will see the former officer’s houses turned into “sustainable retrofit” homes with an EPC A rating.

These properties will be on the market with prices starting at £565,000.

Each home will be equipped with an air source heat pump, solar panels, and an AI-powered Mixergy hot water cylinder which will provide heating and hot water.

Annington says these measures will help residents tackle rising energy costs.

Jane Harsham, the developers’ sustainability manager, said: “The wider retrofit at Devizes has delivered homes refurbished to an EPC A rating, the highest energy performance possible, and one which many new builds fail to achieve.

“Incorporating smart energy designed to optimise the heating process, greatly improved internal and external insulation and a host of other energy efficiency improvements means that for purchasers, energy consumption is more efficient and has the potential to deliver overall lower utility bills, greater occupier comfort, and a more sustainable lifestyle.”
