1. The Cambridge
Simplicity and attention to detail remain two of the most treasured elements in Arts and Crafts architecture and explain why the ever-popular Cambridge has moved into first place this year from second. A hipped roof with broad eaves - a popular feature of the 1930s Arts and Crafts period - is crowned with a decorative finial, while the tiled porch is supported by a timber post and gallows-style brackets.
Each window is framed by artistic brick detailing, beautifully demonstrating the craftsmanship that goes into every Redrow home.
Inside, the impressive hallway of this detached home leads through to an open plan kitchen, dining and family room, which spans the full width of the house - ideal for entertaining or when the family comes together. There is also a generous lounge to the front; while a utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor.
There are four double bedrooms - the main with luxurious en-suite - which means that one bedroom could easily provide that all-important room to adapt for a home gym, office, or guest room - something almost a third of respondents in a recent Redrow survey said was a priority.
2. The Warwick
It’s no surprise that the three-bedroom Warwick has kept its top five place, or indeed moved up one in the list. This classic family home remains a firm favourite in either its brick or half-brick render style, each featuring trademark larch lap boarding. With a decorative door cornice that adds elegance to the entrance, the Warwick has an authenticity of design that underlines the sense of quality and craftsmanship seen throughout.
The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and dining room, boasting a high specification and a choice of contemporary and shaker style kitchen units from Symphony, and which opens out via double doors into the rear garden - another essential feature in any home. A private garden space in which to enjoy the outdoors has become a must post-lockdown. There is a generous lounge at the front, and upstairs there are three good-sized bedrooms - the main with en-suite - and a family bathroom.
3. The Letchworth
The Letchworth is a superb three-bedroom semi-detached home that boasts a beautiful frontage oozing with character. Available in brick or render styles, it’s blessed with period features including the stand-out 45-degree pitch frontage that extends beyond the gable roof and provides a charming porch with timber pillar support, a small diamond feature window upstairs, and intricate contrast brick detailing.
Inside, the Letchworth enjoys a spacious open-plan layout seldom found in other three-bedroom homes. The kitchen and dining area extends the full width of the property at the rear to create a hub-of-the-home family space, while offering a separate lounge, laundry room and downstairs cloakroom. While one of Redrow’s smaller family styles, it boasts the luxury and specification of larger homes, including an en-suite to the main bedroom to complement the family bathroom.
4. The Oxford
The Oxford's design captures the essence of both a traditional home and the Arts and Crafts movement. Beautiful bay windows offer superb kerb appeal - while also providing additional space inside - as does decorative tiling between the upper and lower bays, and a welcoming roofed porch. The integral garage is a crucial element of the design and adds the practicality of a secure parking or storage space, in addition to a private driveway.
Inside, there’s an open-plan kitchen and dining area, again with double doors leading to that appreciated outdoor space, while the cloakroom and utility add to its functionality. A spacious lounge at the front benefits from the wealth of light flowing in through the bay window. All four bedrooms are generously sized with an en-suite bathroom to the main bedroom as well as the family bathroom.
5. The Oxford Lifestyle
Proving how Redrow’s homes continually evolve to meet changing needs, the Oxford Lifestyle is a re-imagining of the classic Redrow detached home. From the outside it has the same appearance as its original counterpart and the same footprint, but there is one vital difference with the Lifestyle version which sees a dramatic change upstairs - three more luxurious bedrooms instead of four.
The interior layout downstairs remains unchanged, but upstairs the Lifestyle has been totally redesigned with three bedrooms. The main extends the full length of the house with a walk-through dressing area connecting to a luxurious four-piece en-suite bathroom. This creates a sanctuary-style boutique feel and, instead of a family bathroom, there is an en-suite shower room to each of the other two bedrooms, offering the ultimate in family - or guest - accommodation.
