England – 05/09/2011 – Cotswold’s new housing developments by Redrow blend effortlessly into the scenery
An innovative collection homes in the heart of the Cotswold demonstrates how UK house builders can plan and create new housing developments that don’t leave locals and buyers feeling cold. Whilst many new housing developments are accused of being ‘soulless’ and ‘same’, the Centuria development on the London Road near Cirencester has been designed and built with ultimate sympathy to the environment and the atmosphere of the local towns.
The scheme offers 2, 3, 4 and even 5 bed family homes, just a stones throw from Cirencester, one of the oldest towns in England and the heart and soul of the Cotswold’s. Rather than the boxy, repetitive nature of many new housing developments, Centuria takes its inspiration from the many iconic Cotswold stone properties found in the local area echoing the character of the period properties in their small windows, rustic roofs and stable doors.

All the benefits of new housing developments
Despite the period appearance of these properties, each and every one features all the mod cons, contemporary interior design and the high levels of energy efficiency buyers have come to expect from brand new housing developments. For first time buyers and more seasoned house movers alike, this cutting edge development appears to be the perfect blend of rural idyll and modern convenience.
A spokesperson from the developer of Centuria said of the design, “We were required to some extent to design this development with sympathy to the local area as part of the planning conditions, but rather than do the bear minimum to keep the Authority happy we wanted to go a step further and create something which both the locals and the buyers would love. I think we’ve achieved what we set out to do.”
