The UK’s most luxurious newbuild homes being built just outside Greater Manchester.

The UK’s most luxurious newbuild homes being built just outside Greater Manchester. The developer says the 14 eco-homes will offer ‘unparalleled standards of luxury living’

A developer has released images of how a luxury new-build estate in Wilmslow will look. A total of 14 eco-homes are being built off Moor Lane.

The project, which received planning permission some years ago, got underway earlier this year and it is hoped the first residents might be able to move into the properties at the beginning of 2024, CheshireLive reports.

The description developer Bowdon Homes’ website reads: “Nestling in a private enclave, surrounded by green belt, is an exclusive development of fourteen detached homes. Each has been designed to offer unparalleled standards of luxury living and allows its occupants to enjoy the privacy, peace and tranquillity of the countryside whilst remaining within easy reach of modern amenities and transport connections.”

The development is surrounded by by picturesque green belt land, bordered by woodland and a nature reserve. The location has influenced the inclusion of natural materials used to build the eco-homes.

The homes will be crafted in ‘four small clusters’. Each of the clusters will be centred around a shared landscaped courtyard and divided by open grassland.

The aim is to create a ‘sense of community’ within the site, as well as promoting what Bowdon Homes describes as ‘natural surveillance’. The homes are said to have been designed to ‘stand the test of time’ by offering ‘proven renewable energy devices’.

These utilise future-proof tech systems and ‘versatile living spaces’ that Bowdon says will ‘accommodate growing families’ as well as ‘multi-generational living’. There are four different styles of home offering a choice of four or five bedrooms.

Bowdon’s description reads: “The homes are part white render and part charred larch timber, connecting them to the attractive woodland setting whilst preserving their contemporary aesthetics.” Bowdon continues: “Within each home will be sociable open plan living spaces suited to contemporary lifestyles, a study that supports home working or schooling and private retreats encouraging cosy family interactions.

“The aim is to deliver ‘forever homes’ that accommodate a family’s natural evolution, so all bedrooms are large doubles where toddlers can grow to teenagers and many feature en-suites allowing different generations of families to comfortably co-exist.”

Neighbouring the site is Lindow Moss, one of the largest lowland peatlands in Cheshire. It is currently the subject of a wide-ranging restoration project.
