Welcome to Pound Lane; twelve detached homes tucked away in the woodlands of Essex just 35 minutes from London. A small, secluded development with communal green spaces to share with a like-minded community. The homes have been designed by renowned architects and are available in different sizes to suit your family situation and your budget. You will get to enjoy private gardens directly neighbouring the woodlands with mature trees and off-street parking.
Three unique homes have been designed, each by a different architect. Plots have been assigned with a planning permission for a specific design. Each design comes in a large or extra large version, with a variety of exterior options. After selecting the type and size of your house, you can decide whether you want to arrange the design and fitout of the house yourself, DIY, or choose from the convenience of our à la Carte options for the interior, providing you with a completely finished home to move into.
Choose your plot and start your orientation period, for which you pay a £400 fee. This reserves the plot exclusively for you for six weeks. During this time you will be able to explore all the options available to you and make a decision on the size of your house, and what exterior options you prefer. Will you go for the DIY or the à la Carte route?
After reserving your plot, you have 12 weeks to finalize the options for your contract. Within 12 weeks after entering the reservation period, exchange of contracts will take place. You have made your choices and you are confident that you will be able to finance the house you will then exchange contracts and we will start building it for you.
At Pound Lane you create more than a unique home. You will be part of a unique community. You will meet like-minded people in a housing scheme where all of your neighbours have designed their homes for the way they want to live. You will live amongst proud owners that will engage with and take notice of the wider community.
S6 House, designed by Pitman Tozer Architects, offers a spacious family home with up to five bedrooms and generous living spaces orientated to maximise views over the large rear garden. Options include a rear extension to increase the living area, fireplace and ground floor bedroom or study.
When you choose the DIY route, you will have maximum freedom in the layout and specification of the interior. Only the positions of the stairwell and the utility risers are fixed. We will build the wind and weathertight shell, which means no services, fixtures or finishes on the inside. The DIY route gives you the opportunity to buy a house at a lower cost and complete the inside to suit your budget and the way you want to live with one of our partners, or by yourself, or with people you know. When you are looking at what you can afford, make sure that you have budgeted for the fitout of the interior. Even though you are in charge, this doesn’t mean you have to do it alone! Our Customer Coach will be available to guide you through your journey and you can make use of our network of building and financing experts for advice.
If you choose the à la Carte route you can select from a number of interior options, like an ensuite bathroom, a large bedroom instead of two small ones and different levels of environmental sustainability. In addition, there are some exterior options to choose from, like window and door materials and colours. Not all options are available in each design. We will present you with all the different options relating to your preferred house type and provide a fixed price for each option. This way you can easily understand what works within your budget. Our Customer Coach will guide you through the options and the architect will finalize the design. We will then build your house accordingly, handing you the keys to your finished home when it is ready for you to move into.
