Homebuyers get a bird's eye view of new homes

Families have flocked together to enjoy a special event at a luxury housing venture near Chester to meet birds of prey and take a look at potential future ‘nests’.

The afternoon event at Redrow’s Stretton Green venture included displays from Cheshire Falconry, a competition to win a spa day for two, and there was a barbecue courtesy of traditional family butchers Jamie Ward, based at the Bellis Brothers Farm Shop and Garden Centre in Holt.

In the heart of rural Cheshire, just 10 miles from Chester, Stretton Green is an exclusive enclave of country homes. The houses have been carefully arranged around a village green where the events took place.

Sam Williams, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “The event was a lovely, sunny family occasion. As well as seeing the impressive birds of prey on display, people were able to tuck into the delicious food and see the beautiful homes on offer at Stretton Green which could one day become their very own ‘nest’.”

Surrounded by idyllic countryside, Stretton Green offers an impressive selection of four and five-bedroom detached homes.

The prestigious development sits adjacent to the 1,000 acre Carden Park Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa. With two golf courses, plus a host of other leisure pursuits, residents are positively encouraged to enjoy the hotel’s facilities.

Home owners will benefit from a bespoke leisure package, which includes a two-year full membership of the golf club as well as extensive use of the hotel’s spa facilities, and there is private buggy access from Stretton Green straight onto the golf course.

Current prices at Stretton Green range from £750,000 for a four-bedroom ‘Bromley’ style home, complete with Tudor arched porch, up to £950,000 for the substantial ‘Melbury’ with its five double bedrooms and ample living space for all the family. The Melbury’s premium specification also includes marble flooring and various landscape packages are available.

Nearby, the charming villages of Tilston and Farndon and Holt and Malpas offer local family essentials, including village schools, shops and excellent pub fayre.

Redrow’s bespoke development won the coveted Gold Award at the 2013 What House? Awards for Best Exterior Design.
