Luxury development of 20 homes on rural village farm site in the Midlands

Twenty new and luxurious family homes on a rural Midlands site that emulates a naturally developed farm complex are being marketed by estate agency Nicol & Co.

The Orchard, in the picturesque village of Norton on the Warwickshire and Worcestershire border, is a project from housebuilder Accueil, which specialises in high specification new-build homes.

The site is named after the farmed orchard upon which it will be built, with the homes enjoying beautiful views over rolling fields of apple trees.

Georgina McGorrigan, new homes sales manager at Nicol & Co, which has offices and operations in Droitwich Spa, Worcester and Malvern, said: “This really is a breathtakingly thrilling development.

“The 20 homes on the site include a mixture of styles such as Dutch barns, stables and other barn-style dwellings with a stunning main farmhouse that has extensive gardens.

“The Orchard will make a delightful retreat for professionals and families alike, and we’re already handling multiple enquiries from keen potential buyers.”

Several of the plots on the site have already been reserved, but those still available include the imposing, Georgian-style farmhouse which has a guide price of £995,000.

Called The Arlington, this key building is set in an extensive plot with its own private entrance and boasts five bedrooms, six bathrooms and its own self-contained studio.

At the other end of the scale is a detached, three-bedroomed house called The Grove which has a guide price of £375,000.

This property enjoys a double car-port and walled garden, with a large double height entrance hall, open plan kitchen and dining room, and separate living room with double doors leading onto the garden.

A number of other impressive homes at prices within the above range are also still available, and full details can be viewed in a brochure that’s downloadable here:

Ms McGorrigan explained that Nicol & Co has plenty of experience of selling on such site, having successful completed on 28 developments over the last four years with several others currently on the market.

She added: “Accueil’s developments really stand out as offering a completely different product, and the Accueil team are all approachable, flexible and happy to work with buyers to create their ‘dream home’.

“Everything they do, they do very well. Not only are developments always in cracking locations, the finish is outstanding.”

Rachel Payne, technical director at Oxfordshire-based Accueil, said: “What we are creating is an idyllic rural housing development based in an established and much sought-after village.

“Potential buyers will not only be fascinated by the designs, but will also be interested to know that the services, schools and shops of Evesham are a mere 2.5 miles away.

“The nearest train station is also at Evesham where regular main line trains leave for Worcester Shrub Hill, Hereford and London Paddington.

“Also within a commutable distance is Stratford-upon-Avon around 10 miles away, the Cotswolds and Cheltenham, with the affluent villages of Harvington and Salford Priors nearby.”
