      Plot 2 - Billy's House - £500,000
      Plot 1 - The Udder House - £525,000

      To an award-winning architect design, these contemporary and sustainable homes each have a gross internal area of approximately 235 square meters / 2,500 foot, and an overall plot size of 665 square meters / 0.16 acres.

      Accessible & adaptable dwellings to M4(2) standard. Three off-street parking spaces including EV charging point, plus a cycle store. A design guide is available, with supplier packages.

Given self-builds are zero rated for VAT, this presents an incredibly cost-effective formula for your self-build project, with no hidden expense.

    Additional information

    • Why self-build?
    • Certainty and reduced risk - full planning and building control permissions have been obtained, and pre-commencement planning conditions have been secured, such as SuDs and LEMP. Newt and bat licenses will be provided as well as essential quotations for the build.
    • Customisation - whilst certain elements are defined - such as the construction method to ensure speedy construction and the external finishes to ensure you and your neighbour's house sit comfortably together, everything else can be customised to create your dream home.
    • Designed to be sustainable - each plot has been designed to allow you to build to passive house standards if you choose. A high-performance factory-made timber frame system has been specified- this can upgraded to full passive house or even passive house plus standard. The specified tile system allows
    • for energy generation, and the windows can be double or triple-glazed.
    • Reduced Stamp Duty costs - stamp duty is only paid on the value of the land - seek advice from your solicitor based on your personal circumstances.
    • Zero rated VAT - new builds are zero-rated, meaning a VAT-registered builder or subcontractor will zero-rate their work. VAT can be claimed back on materials purchased.
    • Your own Grand Design - the houses have been designed by an award-winning architect and will be architecturally innovative houses. With sustainability at the heart, generous room sizes, flexible layouts and some incredible views, the designs present a unique opportunity to create your own Grand Design.
