A SELECTION of sustainable homes has been launched at Redrow’s Oakwood Fields development in Lowton.

The new development at Oakwood Fields, located on Bainbridge Avenue via Hesketh Meadow Lane, offers more than 100 homes with a mix of three and four-bedrooms.

Some of the Oakwood Fields homes are also Eco Electric, which are heated by an air source heat pump and can include even thicker insulation and underfloor heating across the ground floor.

The energy efficient properties also offer high levels of insulation, energy efficient windows and doors and a host of options and extras, including energy efficient appliances and smart home technology, all of which can make homes more sustainable.

Among the homes available is the three-bedroom detached Amberley which boasts a double-fronted design, a porched entrance and central hallway. The "spacious" homes with three double bedrooms currently start from £375,000.

Steve Jackson, sales director at Redrow Lancashire, said: “Not only do our designs feature traditional Arts and Crafts inspired architecture and a high interior specification, but their energy efficiency ratings will also be among the best on the new build market.

“Research by the HBF suggests that houses build to the latest building regulations, Part L, can save home buyers 74% on their energy bills compared to the average second-hand home, which equates to around £216 per month.”

Redrow believes that commuters will appreciate its proximity to the A580 East Lancashire Road, the M6 and M62 Croft interchange, and Newton-le-Willows station with direct trains to Liverpool, Manchester, Chester, and Leeds.

Areas of green space are also planned around the development, with footpaths and cycle-paths connecting to open land to the north and east and playing fields to the south.
