MONTREAUX ACQUIRES SITE FOR NEW HOMES IN BINFIELD
Montreaux Homes, the home counties division of Montreaux Group, has completed the acquisition of a site in the Berkshire village of Binfield that will deliver a boutique development of 21 new homes. Full planning consent is already in place to build 15 homes for private sale and six affordable homes, boosting the supply in this sought-after location.
Construction on the London Road site is due to start imminently, transforming an area that is mostly derelict land into a vibrant new community. The luxury development will offer homes for a range of buyers, and the build is expected to take 18 months to complete.
James Rowntree, Managing Director of Montreaux Homes, said: “We are delighted to conclude our purchase of this site so that we can deliver this small and exclusive collection of new homes. Our plans will create an attractive and peaceful new community that makes the most of its setting with surrounding woodland. The properties will come in a range of sizes and layouts to suit different incomes and affordability. We look forward to welcoming the first new residents towards the middle of 2023.”
Montreaux is making every effort to enhance the green credentials of the new homes by including a range of energy saving features. Air source heat pumps and energy efficient appliances to keep utility bills low for residents are planned for the site, as well as further sustainable solutions. Electric car charging infrastructure will be installed for all homes.
Located in the historic parish of Binfield, the new development will offer an ideal balance between village life and town living, with easy access to the countryside and a good range of essential amenities. The towns of Bracknell, Wokingham, and Reading are just a short drive while excellent rail connections from either Bracknell or Wokingham put Central London less than an hour’s journey away. Residents will enjoy a great quality of life with a fantastic choice of leisure, sporting, and entertainment opportunities in the local area. Highlights include outstanding golf clubs such as Wentworth, exploring Swinley Forest by bike or on foot, and enjoying a day at the races at Ascot Racecourse.
Richard Rowsell, Land Director at Montreaux Homes, said: “The site is at a key location on London Road as part of the sensitively designed extension to the edge of Binfield, where residents can experience an excellent lifestyle. The development typifies the style of high-quality development that Montreaux creates, building inspiring new places for the long term. Montreaux has a strong track record of development across the home counties, and we are actively seeking to purchase further land in the area.”
