Our Five Most Popular House Designs

Written by Redrow

9 Jul 2021

Inspired by the much-loved architecture of the Arts and Crafts era, our Heritage Collection homes have serious kerb appeal thanks to their period style features.

Inside, every design boasts high ceilings, deep skirting boards, taller than average windows and doors and a superior specification that sets them apart from other developer’s properties. But which homes in our award-winning collection are the most popular?

1. The Letchworth / The Ludlow

In first place we’ve actually featured two superb three-bedroom semi-detached houses from our Heritage Collection – the Letchworth and the Ludlow – as they share exactly the same internal layout, but each boasts an individual character frontage. Both are available in brick or render styles, with highly sought-after architectural features made popular by the Arts and Crafts movement. The Letchworth’s stand out attribute is a 45-degree pitched facade that extends beyond the gable roof behind. A small diamond feature window upstairs adds further interest along with contrast decorative brick detailing.

The Ludlow features a double height extension, providing a varied line to the frontage and more space in lounge and master bedroom, as well as canopy above the front door. Inside, this dynamic duo enjoys a luxury rarely seen in other three-bedroom homes. An open-plan kitchen diner extends across the rear, while the main bedroom benefits from a stylish en-suite to complement the family bathroom. Must-have additional spaces include a laundry room and downstairs cloakroom.

2. The Cambridge

In second place, our four-bedroom Cambridge combines two of the most treasured elements of Arts and Crafts architecture – simplicity and attention to detail. A hipped roof with broad eaves, a popular feature of the Arts and Crafts period, is topped with a decorative finial, while the tiled porch is supported by a timber post and gallows style brackets. Each window is crowned with artistic brick detailing, showing off the craftsmanship that goes into every Redrow home. Inside, the impressive hallway leads through to an open-plan kitchen, dining and family room, which spans the full width of the rear of the house. There is also a generous lounge to the front plus a utility room and cloakroom making up the ground floor. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, with bedroom one also enjoying the luxury of en-suite, and a single bedroom that could serve equally well as a home office.

3. The Warwick

It is no surprise the Warwick makes our top five in third place. A firm family favourite from our Heritage Collection, this three-bedroom detached home can be built in a brick or half-brick/ half-white render style, each finish featuring trademark larch lap boarding. The Warwick oozes charm and the quality of the craftsmanship is clear. An open-plan kitchen and dining room is the real hub of this home, with a breakfast bar and double doors out on to the garden to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. There are generous proportions in the lounge and each of the three bedrooms, while the en-suite to bedroom one and the family bathroom boast bright white suites and a high-quality specification.

4. The Amberley

The picture book style of the Amberley makes for a seriously attractive exterior and is one of the many reasons this beautifully designed three-bedroom home takes our number four spot. It’s perfectly balanced double frontage, with a central front door evokes memories of the houses we drew as children while its supressed hipped roof shows the attention given to every aspect of the design. Its decorative contrast brick detailing to the front and sides ensures the property is attractive from every angle. Inside, the Amberley features a spacious dual-aspect lounge to one side and family-friendly open plan kitchen / dining room to the other, with double width patio doors opening out to the garden. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, with the all-important en-suite to bedroom one, and a main bathroom.

5. The Stratford

Our much coveted four-bedroom detached Stratford completes our top five. Its elegance is displayed in many of its period-style architectural features from the double height bay window displaying a suppressed hipped roof and decorative tiling, to the porched front door painted in Redrow’s Heritage colour palette. Inside, the property enjoys a spacious kitchen, dining and family area at its heart with double doors to the rear garden, while the lounge benefits from lots of natural light through the large bay window. The chic master bedroom enjoys its own en-suite and there are three further generous bedrooms, which share a family bathroom. With 27 house types in our Heritage Collection there are many other well-loved favourites that didn’t make our top five list. Discover your very own forever home at one of our developments.
