New homes will offer more than a room with a view

Panoramic valley views from a new development in a Gloucestershire village will allow buyers to appreciate the full beauty of living in the Cotswolds.

House builder Edenstone Homes is currently building 16 homes on a 4.5 acre site at Nupend Farm, Horsley, with the first properties due to be released for sale in spring 2018.

Known as Sealey Wood, the development will offer 11 private sale properties, in a choice of two/three, four and five-bedroom designs, plus five affordable homes.

Andrea Nippe, sales director for Edenstone Homes, said: "We are really thrilled to be building in Horsley as Sealey Wood is situated in a beautiful area on the edge of the village. From the outset, our aim has been to create a locally inspired but distinctive, small-scale, rural extension to Horsley that significantly enhances its setting within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

"What's really exciting is that five of the homes will enjoy panoramic views to the south over the valley."

Edenstone will also build five affordable homes, in a choice of two and three-bedroom designs, which will be managed by Gloucester City Housing Association.

The independent developer has also committed to providing habitats for nature by enhancing hedgerow and tree cover; while the on-site orchard and nut copse are to be given to Horsley Parish Council.

Edenstone has pledged a package of community investments, known as a Section 106 agreement, which will include almost £47,000 for Horsley Primary School and around £35,000 for Horsley Play Project. Funding has also been allocated for traffic signs on the highway adjoining the site, with contributions also earmarked for Horsley Village Hall, the village shop, youth and play groups.
