New Homes with Old Character

1st March 2018

Housebuilders are often accused of dumping new houses which are cut off from established communities and don’t fit in with the existing local architecture. In many cases, these new homes are designed to be ultra-modern, which you would expect from a brand-new home, but can sometimes look terribly out of place, especially in older settlements.

That’s why the designers behind Loxwood Green, Antler Homes’ latest development, took great care to ensure the new homes added to the community rather than trigger conflict between new and existing residents of the village. Traditional local building styles have been employed in the development, with each house having an individual character.

A conscious design choice was made to incorporate roofs with different colours across the development to support the impression of a community which has evolved over time, again adding to the cohesion between the old and the new.

Antler Homes has drawn on its experience of developing high-end luxury housing to improve the specification of more affordable family homes using high-quality kitchens, designer interiors and landscaping. The result is 43 beautifully designed homes with large gardens in tranquil surroundings, yet close to all the day-to-day essentials the village of Loxwood has to offer.

Jay Smith, Sales Manager at Antler Homes said: ‘The friendly atmosphere of the community and the draw of the rural surrounding means Loxwood is the perfect place to put down roots and bring up a family. With a range of house sizes and styles available as well as Help to Buy, Loxwood Green is the ideal place to call home’.

The charming village of Loxwood offers idyllic village life, but still benefits from road links to Guildford and Horsham, as well as a mainline train service to London Victoria from nearby Billingshurst. The local school is renowned for its high standards and a superb local butcher and delicatessen offers a wide range of locally sourced meat and cheese.

About Loxwood Green

Loxwood Green is an exclusive collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes. Combining modern luxury with nostalgia for a quieter pace of life, it offers an inspired living environment within a sought-after village location.

Each of these new homes reflects the scale and detailing of the local architecture and surrounding settlements, with brick patterns and welcoming porches. On the inside of many of the homes have inviting hallways opening onto impressive open plan reception rooms and expansive family areas, with superb kitchens and bathrooms as standard. Bi-fold and French doors blur the lines between inside and out, opening onto patios and gardens. With garage and driveway parking completing the picture.
