Green homes hit the market in Lowton

The sustainable properties are the latest advancement on Redrow’s Oakwood Fields development which offers more than 100 new homes.

The UK government and various independent housing developers are currently working to address the major housing shortage in the UK. The latest piece of news in this field comes in the form of over 100 new homes being built in Lowton, Greater Manchester. What’s more, is some of these homes are also sustainable, helping to address the climate emergency as well as the housing crisis.

Located on Bainbridge Avenue via Hesketh Meadow Lane, the Oakwood Fields development is comprised of a mix of three and four-bedroom properties, all from Redrow’s award winning Heritage Collection.

A selection of the properties are gas-free ‘Eco Electric’ homes which feature air source heat pumps, as well as underfloor heating to the ground floor in detached designs, reducing homeowners’ energy use.

Steve Jackson, sales director at Redrow Lancashire, said the properties energy efficiency rating will be ‘among the best of the new build market.’

‘Not only do our designs feature traditional Arts and Crafts inspired architecture and a high interior specification, but their energy efficiency ratings will also be among the best on the new build market,’ Steve said. ‘Research by the HBF suggests that houses build to the latest building regulations, Part L, can save home buyers 74% on their energy bills compared to the average second-hand home, which equates to around £216 per month.’

Against this backdrop, pockets of green space are also planned for around the development, with footpaths and cycle-paths connecting to open land to the North and East playing fields to the South.

One of the homes available is a three-bedroom detached Amberly which boasts a double-fronted design. When walking in, to the left is a kitchen and dining room and to the right a spacious lounge. A handy cloakroom and utility complete the downstairs accommodation, while upstairs there is a family bathroom and three double bedrooms – the main bedroom has its own en-suite. Prices currently start from £375,000.
