Premium Residential Development – Hovingham
Premium Development in the
Our award winning development on Pasture Lane was a project to deliver 24 beautiful Architect designed homes in the stunning village of Hovingham in North Yorkshire and close to the famous stately home of Castle Howard. Our brief was to deliver individual houses of the highest quality.
Hovingham was recently voted in the Sunday Times as being one of the top 10 places to live in the UK so it was imperative that we delivered a scheme that lived up to what the village required.
One unique fact about the project was that each property was different from the next and although this brought its only logistical problems in terms of construction, it also enabled us to deliver homes for the clients who could have their input into how their homes would look internally.
The construction of the houses was from only the finest materials. The stone was sourced from Lincolnshire which had the same natural characteristics as local stone and was from the same seam. The roofs were constructed using the finest clay pantiles from William Blyth. The Mullions, Head and Cills were all cut from natural stone and the timber windows were conservation grade. One feather was the metal gutters and fall pipes which were hung on rise and fall brackets. The attention to detail has created houses which will age beautifully and will be in keeping with the local architecture.
Internally we sourced local bespoke companies to hand make our kitchens, one example was working in partnership with Grove House from Thirsk who hand produced kitchens which are as good as any in the market place. We invited all our customers to visit them in their factory and to plan their dream home together and feel that they were a part of the whole process.
Likewise, with the bathrooms and on occasions fitted wardrobes or bookcases. There was no stone left un-turned in our aim of exceeding our client’s expectations.
Even the social housing element of the scheme won an award for the best scheme at the regional LABC awards and was later nominated for the finals in London, where we were commended.
We are rightly proud of what we achieved and it is a perfect example of what we can achieve for our future clients who are looking for a quality builder to deliver schemes of the highest order.
