Property firm snaps up land close to Cotswold village for exclusive development


Developer Acorn Property has snapped up a piece of land in a prime location for £6m.

The company is planning to build a collection of four and five bedroomed houses on the land close to the village of Greet in Gloucestershire.

Manor Court is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Winchcombe.

Designed with energy-efficiency in mind, each house will have electric car charging ports and battery storage along with air source heat pumps.

The development will include hedgehog corridors, a hedgehog house and new bat and bird boxes to preserve and enhance existing biodiversity.

“As with all our schemes, the homes at Manor Court will be tailored to suit the immediate surroundings and designed in a style that’s in keeping with local architecture,” said James Groombridge, regional managing director.

“Close to the popular town of Winchcombe and less than 10 miles from Cheltenham, Greet is a quintessential Cotswold village, surrounded by expansive countryside and offering the best of town and country living. We’re expecting strong demand ahead of the sales launch.”

Construction work will be carried out by Acorn’s construction arm, Acorn Homes Construction Solutions (AHCS), who have completed a number of developments across Cornwall, Bristol and Somerset.

Work on site is due to begin in the spring, with the first homes expected to be ready by the end of the year.

The new homes will be released for sale in the summer with prices expected to be from £780,000 to £1.3m.
