Bespoke homes under construction
With two plot purchasers having started on site already, and with two more expected to begin shortly, each is aiming to be in their dream home by Christmas this year. Having purchased a serviced plot, the utilities have already been installed and directed to the boundary ready to be connected.
Owners of plot 4 and plot 10 are the first to get going, both starting on site as soon as planning was approved and the purchase of the plot was complete. Each home has been designed to meet the individual requirements of the owner who has then commissioned the home to be built out using a team of trusted professionals.
Each plot purchaser is encouraged to incorporate Passivhaus and Fabric First techniques within their build to provide low energy use homes. Using the Long Four Acres Design Code, properties are permitted up to a maximum height of 9m, which will allow for a three storey house if they so desire. The Design Code also includes a wide palette of building materials to choose from to encourage a variation of designs. Purchasers can choose from a variety of woods - greys, reds or black with no restriction on styles - or brick - from creams, greys, buffs, reds to charcoal tones. Custom builders also have the choice to develop the roof using sedum, slates or black pantiles, and there are no constraints on the type of architectural design that is allowed.
The entire site benefits from green space that has been developed into each plot. With an average plot size of 0.3 acres (1200sq.m) the site has been designed to ensure houses are well spaced out from one another to further emphasise the greenery. This is again demonstrated by a choice of hedges rather than fencing to divide each plot.
Different to your average new build estate, no cars will be allowed to park on the avenue so as not to ruin the aesthetic. Also, when you consider that an average 4 bed home in the UK, built within the last decade, comprises approximately 150m2 of living space, Long Four Acres could in theory offer custom builders a property of up to 4x the size at just over 600m2.
Limited availability of serviced plots remain at this beautiful development. To begin your journey towards a bespoke home at Long Four Acres, please contact Custom Build Homes on 0345 223 4452, or simply enquire now.
