Cavanna Homes has launched its first development in the picturesque East Devon village of Woodbury, with 20 stylish new homes, the first of which will be ready by the end of the year.
Meadow Haze will offer 13 open market homes consisting of two, three and four-bedroom, semi-detached and detached houses. Each home is designed to complement the village setting and countryside surroundings, in a contemporary style which makes use of materials such as timber cladding and natural slate roofs, reflecting the distinct appearance of the existing buildings.
Woodbury is on the edge of the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths, a unique wildlife habitat supporting more than 3,000 different species, which is a fascinating attraction for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities such as walking, cycling and horse riding. It has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Special Area of Conservation and a Special Protection Area, making it one of the most important conservation areas in Europe.
The beaches of the dramatic Jurassic coastline at Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton are within a 15-minute drive of Meadow Haze. The development is close to all the amenities of Woodbury with its primary school, church, post office, GP surgery, traditional pubs and a golf club.
Meadow Haze has excellent transport links, being a short drive from the award-winning Darts Farm shop, Exeter International Airport and the M5, and just 20 minutes from the cathedral city of Exeter.
Paul Osborne, Urban Design Director at LHC, who produced the architectural designs and full working drawings for Meadow Haze, said: “Our urban designers and architects worked closely with the Conservation Officer for the area as the site is on the edge of Woodbury’s conservation area. The homes’ layout has been designed to complement the surrounding pattern of development. The houses are all two-storey and have been set back from the street edge, arranged as a mix of styles with detached garages and off-street parking.
“Both the architecture and landscaping have been designed to maximise the quality of the living environment, taking material and design cues from the local vernacular. This achieves a development that is contemporary, harnessing the best of modern design, yet one that respects the identity of Woodbury.Where possible, building materials and products are sourced locally.”
All the properties are designed and built to be energy efficient with UPVC glazed windows throughout. Every Cavanna home is finished to a high standard and comes with a 10-year NHBC Buildmark Warranty and two-year customer support from Cavanna Homes.
The family home builder, which has headquarters in Torquay, was named by the House Builders’ Federation as one of just 18 in the UK to achieve its maximum 5-star award based on customer satisfaction, which it has now won four years in a row.
