Creating a kitchen that is perfect for you and your family takes time and
plenty of planning. Your Sales Negotiator will give you a plan of the kitchen/
diner and utility room showing the standard layout for your property. An
Atlantis Kitchens brochure will also be available. Once you have looked at
the layout plan, please contact your Sales Negotiator who will then arrange
an appointment for you to meet a representative from Atlantis Kitchens so
you can go through the type of units, colour, worktops and appliances you
would like. This is also the time to discuss any amendments you may wish
to make to the standard layout.
Your choice of kitchen units will be from the Sheraton range which are
high-quality units showing great British craftsmanship. There are three
main types of kitchen – Shaker, Modern and Traditional. There is a wealth

of handles and soft-close fittings.

HOMES OF THE FUTURE
INNOVATION: SUPER-STRENGTH PLASTERBOARD
We are delighted to announce that we have incorporated some of the
most innovative new building materials on the market at Carleton Manor
Park – a UK first. We’ve partnered with the Innovation Team at BRITISH
GYPSUM who have an aspiration to develop innovative products, which
will establish a new standard for the future of house building.
British Gypsum have nearly 100 years’ experience in plaster, plasterboard
and ceiling solutions and are the UK’s leading manufacturer, with
five UK specialist manufacturing sites. Previously crowned Building’s
Manufacturer of the Year, British Gypsum has a multitude of highperformance products and systems and the Innovation Team is constantly
pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
Super-strength plasterboard, soundproofing and magnetic walls are just
three of the latest inventions from British Gypsum. Unique products
deliver meaningful customer benefits which enable us to build better
spaces for our homeowner to live, work and play. All three of these British
Gypsum products are included in all our new homes at Carleton Manor
Park. It will help our house buyers create inspiring homes that allow them
to live creatively and express themselves as they wish.
page 8
Super-strength plasterboard is five times stronger than standard
plasterboard and is reassuringly solid compared with standard walls. You
can hang 15kg from one wood screw - all you need is a screwdriver, no wall
plugs or power tools required. It gives the you the freedom and flexibility
to fix heavy items to the wall.
At Carleton Manor
Park we are proud
to be raising the
standard in our
homes and focussing
on the needs of our
customers

INNOVATION: A MAGNETIC WALL
INNOVATION: SOUNDPROOFING
A magnetic wall brings your room to life by adding an inspiring interactive
design feature. Express yourself time and time again by transforming the
look of a room simply, easily and without damaging your wall. Pictures,
posters, letters, numbers, poems and games can all go up on the wall one
day, then be changed or moved whenever you want to. The bedroom
wall can become a giant space for children to unleash their imaginations
without permanently marking the walls.
Soundproofing will give you the freedom to make as much noise in your
new home as you want to, with the knowledge others in your house won’t
be disturbed. ‘Silent Floor’ and ‘Silent Wall’ provide acoustic performance
standards to twice the level required by Building Regulations. This gives
you and your family complete peace of mind.
Be flexible, creative
and confident of
a clean finish with
innovative magnetic
plaster

SMART HOME / HOME AUTOMATION
TECHNOLOGY
We have made all our properties smart home ready by introducing a wired
home network throughout the property which enables easy connectivity
of smart devices such as TVs and Sky boxes as well as newer white goods
appliances. It also makes it much easier to create a robust Wi-Fi network
within your home.
To take the smart home concept a step further, we are working with Fibaro
UK, a market-leading home automation company. By making a house
as smart as it can be, the homeowner benefits from a more comfortable
environment as well as saving money.
All our properties are technology ready. Cost-effective, non-intrusive
devices can make individual rooms or larger areas ‘smart’. They can even
include the whole house and garden. The options extend as far as the
homeowner’s requirements and imagination.

Control and monitor your heating inside and outside of your home
Programme the heating to turn on and off automatically
Have the system automatically react to the weather and time of year
Have the heating system recognise if a door or window has been left
open so as not to turn the heating on and waste energy
Set different heating programmes for different rooms/zones
Set lighting ‘scenes’ to suit different times of day or events in your
home
Have lights automatically turn on or off when motion is detected or
not detected
Have external lighting and selected internal lights automatically turn
on when arriving home at night
Turn all lights off when leaving the house or going to bed
Set an away programme to cycle different lights on and off to mimic
occupation when you’re away for an extended period
Have the lighting react to an alarm situation – all internal and external
lights are activated if the intruder alarm is tripped
Monitor energy consumption for the house or individual rooms
•
•
•
Have the house react when someone presses the doorbell. A CCTV
camera can take a picture of the visitor and send it to you so you don’t
miss anyone
Remote access to security cameras to check on the property when
away
Integrated motion detectors in the property and contact sensors to
doors and windows to notify the homeowner remotely if activated
Smart locks can be added to give the homeowner more control over
who can enter the property, even allowing them to remotely grant
access to visitors if required
Options and their cost implications can be discussed initially with your
Sales Negotiator.

these options.

TV aerials will be fitted in the loft space, where appropriate for the signal.
The properties will be wired for Sky and the homeowner will need to
arrange connection with a Sky service engineer.
Low energy lighting will be fitted throughout the property. Dimmable
LED downlights will be provided in kitchen and bathroom areas and LED
pendants provided elsewhere.
All properties will be smart home ready. This will allow homeowners to
introduce a variety of home automation technologies designed to enhance

dining room patio doors.

HEATING
All properties will be divided into four controlled heating zones – two on
the ground floor (‘living areas’ in a bungalow) and two on the first floor
(‘sleeping areas’ in a bungalow).
BEDROOMS
Where possible, there will be a recess for either stand-alone or fitted
wardrobes. Your Sales Negotiator can provide you with a quote for fitted
wardrobes.
Typically, we create the following heating zones:
Zone 1
Zone 2
Zone 3
Zone 4
Lounge
Hall, landing, kitchen/diner, WC, and study (if applicable)
Bedroom 1, bedroom 2, bedroom 3, and bedroom 4
En-suite 1, bathroom, and en-suite 2 (if applicable)
The first room shown in each zone is where the programmable room
thermostat will be located to control each zone.
The properties are plumbed to allow homeowners to add further zones.
Additional room thermostats can be requested to suit specific needs, such
as a home office or the number of spare bedrooms.
There is also the option to make the heating controls smart – this could be
included in a wider home automation package. Your Sales Negotiator will
be happy to discuss the range of cost-effective options with you.
This offers a considerable improvement on the minimum required
standard of up to two heating zones. Coupled with the control options
above, this offers the homeowner an energy-efficient and flexible system.
Under-floor heating is also available for a modest premium, subject to the
build stage of the property. If under-floor heating is of interest, your Sales
Negotiator can discuss this with you.
page 16
FLOORING
All kitchen/diner and utility floors, including the bathroom, en-suite and
WC, are tiled as standard.
We do not provide carpets but can recommend a local supplier if required.

before you move into the property. (Should doors need to be trimmed to
suit carpets, please ensure the carpet fitter is responsible for this.)

recommended level.
The loft space is designed for light storage only.
