Briarswood B


riarswood is the latest ongoing development from award win- ning


developers Ravenscroft Homes NW Ltd. The site is


situated on The Old Highway close to The Welsh Mountain Zoo in the much sought after area of Colwyn Heights. The land was previously an overgrown


garden area for a local nursing home, the land was bought by Ravenscroft, taking it out of the hands of the nursing home that were struggling to manage the area. The site was then cleared and a number of trees were removed, working closely with the Local Authority Landscape Officer, Ravenscroft Homes have agreed a replant- ing schedule to ensure suitable species are reintroduced. Works on site began in November 2012,


with Ravenscroft Homes hoping to com- plete the scheme in December 2014. The site consists, of six executive de-


tached houses all with generous south facing


gardens and enviable internal


specification boasting under floor heating to the ground floor, solid oak staircases, Nolte German kitchens with German ap- pliances, contemporary Roca bathrooms and Porcelain tiling, the Show Home has recently been featured in Utopia Kitchen and Bathroom Magazine highlighting the exceptional quality and design of the kitch- ens and bathrooms. Polished chrome sockets and switches


throughout and satellite TV dish and wiring will ensure both the look and practicality of the properties will not be found wanting. The four and five bedroom houses have


all been designed with families in mind with generous proportioned rooms and the ability to further increase the floor area by utilising the attic space allowing for the


houses. Externally,


potential of a further two bedrooms in each property,


Ravenscroft


Homes have also made the provision for the future attic space being used by installing fire doors


throughout the the prop-


erties are finished with Sterling Grey KRend and stone cladding to the front elevations in keeping with the grey PVCu framed windows, demonstrating the contemporary finish inside before the front door has been opened. All properties will benefit from PV Solar panels which will


reduce electricity bills


together with highly insulated walls, floors and roofs; ensuring that running costs are kept to a minimum. While four homes are complete and three


handed over, Ravenscroft are currently lay- ing the foundations for units five and six. Each of the homes is unique using five brand new designs, and includes tailor made


elements


for the future home owners. Speaking to Premier Construction


mag-


azine, Steve Martin, Site Manager for Briarswood said: “At Ravenscroft we


never do the same thing twice, we try to make everything be-


Ravenscroft: award winning developers


spoke and give our customers options.” The construction process has presented


the company with a number of challenges including the arrival of snakes on site from the nearby Zoo and ground levels requiring deeper foundations and soakawys in the rear gardens. Such is the success of the property


development project, Steve Martin, Site Manager, has been awarded an NHBC
