Crest Nicholson has unveiled a brand new collection of three and four bedroom house types at its Bristol development, Hygge Park at Keynsham. The attractive range is ideal for the modern-day purchaser, featuring a number of measures designed to deliver environmental benefits.
Located between Bristol and Bath, Hygge Park takes its inspiration from the Danish ‘Hygge’ concept of comfort and wellbeing. The innovative development prioritises flexible layouts, open living spaces and natural light, while beautiful open green spaces can be found throughout the development.
The new house types have been meticulously designed to reduce unnecessary angles and ensure that all terrace units align, with the same overall lengths front to back. This improves their ability to retain heat and reduces the energy required to keep a home warm. The efficient design also reduces material waste on site and the time it takes to build a home.
Hygge Park also features a range of initiatives to support biodiversity across the development, including a specially designed ‘hedgehog highway’. This allows the vulnerable species to safely roam between gardens and helps them avoid roads. Nesting boxes have also been installed on site to support a variety of bat and bird species, as well as a bug mansion.
The new three bedroom Chesham, Evesham and Hatfield house types are perfect for those looking to take their first or next step onto the property ladder, with two double bedrooms and a third perfect for a home office. While the four bedroom Dorking, Hexham, Malborough and Romsey all offer an open-plan dining and family area with a separate living room, providing extra space for growing families.
Mark Kershaw, head of sustainability at Crest Nicholson, comments: “Our new range of house types help us to improve thermal efficiency, minimise waste and speed up construction, helping to reduce our impact on the environment whilst helping homeowners to lead more sustainable lives. As one of the top 300 companies in Europe* to have substantially reduced its greenhouse gas emission intensity since 2014, Crest Nicholson is committed to cutting its carbon footprint and is actively engaging with industry leaders and the government to provide a more sustainable future. We are continually looking for ways to reduce waste and energy consumption in our operations.”
Ralph Hawkins, managing director at Crest Nicholson South West, comments: “We take great pride in not only building sustainable homes but sustainable communities at Crest Nicholson developments. These new house types will go a long way in reducing carbon emissions in both the construction process and in the running of homes for customers. By maximising the efficiency of space, many of the new homes will also offer more double bedrooms, utility rooms and studies, whilst spacious open-plan living areas provide flexibility for customers to adapt the way they use their home as their lifestyles change.
“As part of our strategy to protect the environment, we’re also committed to looking after the wildlife in and around our developments, and simple measures like the ‘hedgehog highway’ at Hygge Park – which allows hedgehogs to move safely between gardens – is just one example of how we are protecting local animals.”
Situated in the market town of Keynsham with the River Chew and rural walks on the doorstop, Hygge Park benefits from being equidistant from the historical city of Bath and the vibrancy of Bristol, offering homeowners the very best of city and village life. Boasting a range of high quality schools, a 26 acre Memorial Park, play areas and a golf course nearby, Keynsham is the perfect location for families, while shops, supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants on the high street ensure residents are well catered for.
Commuters are also well connected with Keynsham train station just a five minute drive or 20 minute walk away, offering services to Bristol, Bath, Southampton, Brighton, Weymouth and Cheltenham, while Bath and Bristol are just 20 minutes away by car.
Once complete, Hygge Park will offer 141 properties including two, three and four bedroom homes and two bedroom apartments. Three bedroom homes at Hygge Park start from £385,000, and four bedroom homes from £500,000. A selection of homes are available to purchase using Smooth Move.
