Work has begun on a £12m development that will create 39 new homes in Marton, Lincolnshire.
The two to four-bedroom single and two-storey homes in Stow Park Road are being delivered by E5 Living UK, which is promising a new generation of high specification eco-friendly homes including air source heat pumps for buyers looking for more sustainable heating options.
Marton Meadows is the second venture in the county for E5, which is also building nearly 100 new homes at King’s Park in Grimsby and has further sites in Market Rasen and Caistor primed for residential development.
E5 has teamed up with its King’s Park architect, the Cleethorpes based Hodson Architects, for the project. It will be built by Kenmore Design, an experienced residential construction contractor that works across the UK and the selling agent will be Lincoln’s Mount & Minster. The first properties are expected to come to market in the autumn.
E5 Director, Kevin Stevens, said: “We are delighted to bring these much needed new homes to Marton, particularly as there’s a nationwide shortage of single storey and eco-friendly homes. People want to live cleaner and take responsibility for themselves concerning the environment we all live in.
“Our experience in Lincolnshire to date has shown that buyers are keen on the open plan contemporary style properties we deliver as they offer more flexible living and suit the way we use our homes today.
“We pride ourselves on delivering a high specification of homes as standard, far in excess of the traditional new builds on offer, so we’re expecting a lot of interest when they come to market.”
E5 has already started building links in the community, building a new car park at the neighbouring Marton Academy and is looking to further support local charities and organisations during the build.
Andy Miles, Director of Kenmore Design, said: “Working with E5 Living UK and in this area of Lincolnshire is an exciting development for us. We will be building on our supply chain network here, which will have a valuable impact on the local economy.
“E5 has a clear vision for a new generation of homes at Marton Meadows and we’re looking forward to delivering them.”
James Ward, Partner at Mount & Minster, added: “It is a fantastic opportunity for environmentally conscious buyers who demand the highest standards of build quality and luxury finishes.
“E5 has really listened to what the market is asking for and the new homes in Marton will deliver this with style. I am excited to bring to market a development of extremely well designed and built high spec properties; it is a perfect fit with the Mount & Minster brand.”
