A collection of new homes set to bring a touch of ‘Grand Designs’ to a major Northamptonshire development have been given the go-ahead by planners.
The 23 homes are being developed by EDG Property at Priors Hall Park in Corby, a settlement that will see the creation of 5,000 new homes with schools, shops and offices around stunning parkland over the coming decade.
The majority of homes on Priors Hall Park are being developed by national house-builders such as Barratt, David Wilson and Taylor Wimpey while EDG Property is planning to develop a series of bespoke clusters throughout the scheme.
The first 23 houses have been designed by Birmingham-based Bryant Priest Newman Architects – who designed the RIBA Award-winning second phase of The School Yard – and are inspired by the Accordia housing development in Cambridge which won the prestigious Sterling Prize for architecture in 2008.
The three-storey houses will have flat roofs with double aspect terraces overlooking the park, wildlife nature reserve and lake and EDG director Neil Edginton said they will be amongst the highest specified houses on the Priors Hall Park development.
He said: “Priors Hall Park is an incredibly successful development with houses selling before they are even built and we are delighted that local planners have seen the merit in our proposals which we believe will make an exciting contribution to the scheme.
“These houses are located along the edge of the wildlife park and their location and superb specification will allow buyers to truly embrace the ‘park life’ ethos with design features including boot rooms, log burners and racks to hang bikes in all the garages.
“We are very excited to be working with BPN again after the success of our previous collaboration at The School Yard and once again they have produced a scheme that makes a strong design statement and will set a very high benchmark at Priors Hall Park both in terms of the overall aesthetics and the experience of those that eventually live in the properties.”
Construction work is set to begin on site later this year with the first properties set to be released for sale off-plan this summer. Anyone interested should register with EDG Property, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, to ensure they receive details for the first sales release.
