Thoughtful design and the use of local building materials has ensured our first rural housing development in the Cherwell district of Oxfordshire is a welcome addition to the village of Hook Norton.
The site, developed by AC Lloyd, has regenerated disused industrial land next to an old railway station to provide 28 new homes.
Eight homes were built for Waterloo to provide affordable homes to meet the needs of local people, including two houses for shared ownership and six for affordable rent.
The use of local materials such as natural stone and slate, ensures the development maintains the look and character of the village as well as providing a boost to the local economy. A substantial area of the site has been designed to enhance existing wildlife habitats and create new ones.
The development is well placed to ensure residents can enjoy village life, with access to local facilities such as shops and schools just a short walk away. All properties have views of the open countryside and the village.
