After seeing the property in its previous state, owner Richard Mayes, said: “After a good cry...we bought the place. Then we sat down and decided what we'd like Lealt to look like when we'd finished. In a nutshell we wanted to completely renovate the place but retain all the existing character and add some more light and air.
“Everything except the four outside walls had to go. Now family and friends can wallow in comfort and warmth lit by the wind!”
The property is completely off grid with electricity provided by its own generation system based on the power of wind, water and sun. With its own wind turbine and water turbine, built in the property’s burn, which by itself generates 7.5kw per day satisfying all the basic electrical needs.
