The need for nature: Discover our range of homes with unique outside space

January 28, 2021

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s unsurprising that outside space has become an increasingly important factor for homebuyers. Industry giants such as Savills and Rightmove have published continued evidence to support this, with an emphasis on the shift in demand for buyers seeking a new life in the country. But the topic has been around for many years, and countless scientific research has proven that being close to nature can help lower blood pressure, boost your immunity, and boost your mood – proving essential to both our physical and mental wellbeing.

Where possible, outside space has always been central to the design of our new homes – be it communal or private. Our homes are intended to be a sanctuary – to enhance wellbeing and give peace of mind, and allow our communities, individuals, and nature, the opportunity to thrive. From coastal havens to rural escapes, read on to discover our range of developments offering beautiful outside space.

The Courtyard, Duporth
Situated above a secluded beach and private woodland, residents at The Courtyard at Duporth are just moments away from beautiful coastal walks along pale white sands and fantastic open space. At the development itself, as well as private outside space, residents can also enjoy access to a communal landscaped courtyard complemented by a lovingly restored Grade II listed clock tower – the ideal spot to relax or get to know your neighbours.

The Links, Porthcawl
Proudly overlooking the rolling surf of Rest Bay, The Links offers a truly unrivalled seafront location. A haven for surfers, walkers and beachcombers of all ages, residents can enjoy easy access to the bay’s sandy beaches with the Welsh Coastal Path on their doorstep. If that isn’t enough to entice you, the award-winning Royal Porthcawl Golf Club sits adjacent to the development, providing a wide stretch of luscious green beauty, and not to mention, a top destination for golf lovers.   In addition, many of the homes benefit from private outside space, in form of a terrace or balcony.

Brooks Dye Works, Bristol
Designed with the local community in mind, Brooks Dye Works balances outside space with accessibility.  Located in the vibrant Bristol neighbourhood of St Werburghs, residents can make use of new formed walkways with direct access to Mina Road Park, a great area of additional outside space. Nodding to the site’s heritage and connection to the former Brooks Laundry, the homes are formed around an iconic 19th century chimney on the new Alfred Square – providing a central point to meet up, relax, and watch the world go by.

Hope House, Bath
Set within six acres of parkland, Hope House residents can enjoy an abundance of green space at their fingertips. With the majestic Grade II listed manor house as the backdrop, the development overlooks a grand formal lawn – the perfect spot to read a book on warmer days or take in the impeccable surroundings. Ideal for taking a stroll, the mature woodland is teeming with wildlife or if you’re seeking a bit of sport, there is a private tennis court to take advantage of.

Cottrell Gardens, Bonvilston
Located in the idyllic Welsh village of Bonvilston, our bespoke homes at Cottrell Gardens overlook the award-winning Cottrell Park Golf Course, with spectacular views to selected plots. Complementing its rural setting, green open space and plentiful landscaping is prominent throughout the development, providing residents with tranquil surroundings in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan. In addition, the homes benefit from a children’s play area – the perfect spot to keep the young ones entertained!
