Wheeler Street, Headcorn
Client: Leath Park Developments
Completed: December 2019
Replacing a former redundant warehouse facility the new homes are situated in a prime location within the town, opposite the mainline train station, providing opportunity for a high-standard of suburban living within optimal commuting distance to London.
Built of traditional construction with cut and pitch roofs the attractive development delivered one four-bedroom detached property and three terraced cottages all with three-bedrooms and all for private sale. The properties were completed with charming gardens and patio areas as well as either a garage or car port to the rear. Internally the homes were finished to a high-specification to include en-suites, office space, log burners and living space sectioned with pocket doors to maximise the accommodation space.
The site was logistically challenging situated along the main road thoroughfare through the town with site access needed from the rear and works sequenced accordingly to improve logistics. The car ports were constructed at an early stage to provide additional site storage and ground remediation was essential to decontaminate the site ready for the new builds.
The sympathetic and aesthetically pleasing design ensured the development was openly embraced by the local community whilst regular communications and additional ‘goodwill’ works to the surrounding drainage systems ensured excellent relations with the neighbouring residents were established and nurtured throughout the construction period.
