FORMER BOTTLING FACTORY TO BECOME NEW LUXURY HOUSING
Local building company, Speller Metcalfe, has been contracted by specialist housing provider, Blue Cedar Homes, to turn a part of the redundant site of the Malvern Water bottling factory into a small development of 12 luxury, detached houses for individuals or couples reaching retirement.
The select development is located in the village of Colwall, on the edge of the Malvern Hills. Set back from Walwyn Road, Lime Tree Gardens has 12 spacious, high quality homes which are situated within tastefully landscaped communal gardens and managed by a visiting Estate Manager.
The architecture is contemporary with certain features of the former bottling factory – including the site’s Grade II listed Tank House – incorporated into the design.
As with all Blue Cedar Homes developments, Lime Tree Gardens offers highly desirable, adaptable properties designed to meet the need for independent living for an ever-increasing number of mature couples and singles. The properties are freehold with a maintenance charge covering services such as window cleaning, waste management and general security.
Nick Cooper, Area Director for Blue Cedar Homes said: “We are pleased to have retained some of the historic features of the old Malvern Water factory, while at the same time giving it a new lease of life by creating an excellent development, designed to meet the specific requirements of the “active retired” in the area.”
Matt Brown, Living Director at Speller Metcalfe commented on the benefits of the new residential development: “The construction of Lime Tree Gardens is really starting to take shape. We are working to a design which is stylish yet practical, with good insulation and a range of energy saving features to help keep residents’ costs down.”
Speller Metcalfe has been contracted to construct nine additional properties on Walwyn Road for Fortis Living. This will increase the number of affordable housing available to residents in the area.
Both residential developments are set to complete at the end of November 2015.
