Wheatcroft Homes announces acquisition of Thoroton Farm

24 July 2020

Wheatcroft Homes is delighted to announce the recent acquisition of Thoroton Farm in Nottinghamshire.

The new residential development will offer eight luxury new build homes and will be built in the style of traditional farmhouses and barns to pay tribute to the original farmyard look and feel.

The countryside development, located 30 minutes from Nottingham city centre, will feature one single storey two-bedroom property, one three-bedroom property, five four-bedroom properties and one five-bedroom property.

Two of the luxury homes will be detached properties, while the remaining six properties will be semi-detached barns.

With its prime position close to the A46 and A52, the development is in the ideal location for people wanting to live in the countryside whilst being able to quickly commute to Nottingham, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and other key cities and towns in the East Midlands.

All of the properties will include luxury bathrooms, en-suites and dressing rooms as well as open plan family rooms that have bi-fold doors leading to private gardens.

The homes, which have been designed to suit the modern family looking for a life in the countryside, will also have beautiful oak framed porches, open fronted oak framed car ports as well as timber stable doors and shutters.

Catherine Haward, director of Wheatcroft Homes, said: “We’re really excited about bringing this development of eight luxury new builds to life over the next year.

 “We pride ourselves on developing individual homes that are unique to each location, making them distinctive and offering something different to other new builds on the market.                                           

“We will also be using a renewable heat source throughout the development with air source heat pumps, as we are restricted from using gas in the village.  By using an efficient renewable heating system, residents will have the added bonus of lower fuel bills and reduced carbon emissions.” 

Wheatcroft Homes is working with Leicester-based architects Staniforths, Nottingham-based civil and structural engineers BSP Consulting and mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy The Engineering Practice.

Construction work will start on site in August 2020, with the development expected to be complete by Winter 2021.
