Sky Bungalow concept is set to take off

A small Midlands housing developer has launched a new style of residential property aimed at giving older buyers and downsizers luxury accommodation that is affordable.

“Sky Bungalows” is a new living concept created by Lockley Homes that is set to take the UK residential housing market by storm.

Lockley Homes, a small Warwickshire-based developer run by brothers Tom and Karl Lockley, has made its name bucking UK housing trends.

Where national housebuilders look to maximise the total number of housing units on each site, Lockley Homes has set out its stall to provide luxury accommodation first and foremost.

The new Sky Bungalows concept will make its debut at Kingsbrooke, Lockley Homes’ latest development in Colwall, near Malvern in Herefordshire.

On a two acre site, Lockley Homes is building just ten homes including two large four bedroom detached houses, and two traditionally styled two bedroom bungalows.

But it is the six luxury two bedroom apartments in Connolly House that are set to attract significant attention. Designed in the manner of an Edwardian country house, it is surrounded by lawns and trees.

Joint managing director Karl Lockley said: “These new Sky Bungalows, as we have named them, range from 1,650 sq ft to 1,800 sq ft, and are some 10-20% bigger than traditional bungalows.

“As an added bonus, they are also £100,000 cheaper, but buyers lose nothing by choosing such a luxury apartment development.”

From the very impressive lobby, with large five star lift, which lays out the luxury standard which is continued throughout the development, buyers will be able to choose from two large ground floor apartments which have private terraces and then each of the four Sky Bungalows will have two or three balconies per unit, with the penthouses featuring multiple vaulted elevations.

All occupiers will have the use of a private cabana in the communal gardens for outdoor dining use.

Buyers will also have bespoke kitchens with stone worktops and Bosch appliances, feature shelving with Victorian style cornices, bespoke fitted wardrobes to the master bedroom and hand-painted finishes to all doors. Villeroy & Boch white sanitaryware and Porcelanosa wall and floor tiles are standard.

All six apartments also come with one private garage space, two allocated parking spaces and three communal visitor parking spaces.

The Kingsbrooke development lies directly opposite Colwall Gardens, a Lockley Homes’ development of two, three and four bedroom luxury family homes and bungalows which the company completed earlier this year and which sold out very quickly.

Karl Lockley said they were extremely pleased to have been able to secure two such well located developments on either side of the main road through Colwall.

“The village of Colwall is extremely sought after, being the jewel in Herefordshire with direct train links to London Paddington, Birmingham and Hereford.

“Colwall is close to the Malvern Hills and the village has an excellent selection of shops and services and multiple private schools nearby.

“We believe Kingsbrooke will appeal to ‘lock up & leave’ buyers, who may spend part of the year abroad, parents of children at local private schools looking for a bolt hole, or down-sizers looking for a bungalow but without the hassle of maintaining gardens and external facilities as this is all provided,” he said.

Prices range from £465,000 to £750,000 with the two detached four bedroom, three bathroom houses having already been snapped up off-plan.
