Phase 2 of Woodlands Edge will start early 2018 17 Oct

Eleven more homes will be built on the Woodlands Edge on the Showground as part of the original plan to create 29 homes.

The spectacular development, set in 12 acres of parkland which includes a 2 level-lake and a 5 acre mature wood is already proving to be a hit with homeowners.

Steff Wright, managing director for Gusto Homes is thrilled to be living in one of the homes on the first phase of 18 three and four bedroom homes which are all occupied.

He said: “This project has given us the opportunity to bring all of our 20 years knowledge of eco-homes together and create something fantastic. This project has been an exciting challenge, and we are enthusiastic about Phase 2 of the development which will bring a great opportunity for 11 additional home owners to join the Woodland’s Edge community!”

Gusto Homes expect the new unique high-end developments to be in as much demand as Phase 1.

West Lindsey District Council’s building control team have been working closely with Gusto Homes on the development. Philip Westmorland, building control surveyor at the council was invited to look around the finished development called Woodlands Edge.

He said: “The homes really are stunning. I knew the project was going to be good having seen the designs and knowing the quality of Gusto Homes – but seeing them complete is great. They are located with easy access to the A15 and in close proximity to the city of Lincoln. The development benefits from a rural location that much of West Lindsey offers. It has been a privileged for our team to work on this exciting project and I can’t wait for phase two start.”

The unique energy saving properties boasts amenities such as allotments, a tennis court with pavilion and an orchard planted by the residents. These spacious new passive solar homes have been built to the highest standards, and have been designed and specified to cost no more than an average of £1 per day (at 2016 energy prices) for space heating, hot water, and lighting.

Resident Tina White said, "Words cannot describe what it’s like to live here, it is the best thing we’ve ever done. The woods and the fields are so well kept, and it is a great place to live. There is a great community spirit, people look after one another, it’s the real old fashioned sense of community that these homes are striving to produce"

Helen Pickles added, "it's modern, eco living in a relaxed, rural environment. The best move we've made."

The development has already won the “Best New Homes” category of the 2016 West Lindsey District Council ‘Quality in Construction’ Awards and a Lincolnshire Energy Award in 2015.
