We Host Fun Easter Weekend Open Day at Church Farm
Visitors can enjoy a sneak peek around the new Church Farm development in Radley as part of an Easter-themed open day from 11am on Saturday, 16th April.
As well as an Easter Egg hunt and bug house decorating, popular local author Teresa Heapy will be meeting families and providing two reading sessions of her story ‘The Wonder Tree’ along with a selection of her other books, and a special activity relating to her books.
All children will also be gifted a tree sapling from the Blenheim Estate for them to take home and plant, showcasing our commitment to sustainability.
In keeping with the developers’ commitment to source locally, we have got local business Wells Farm Shop involved to keep our visitors fed and watered with a selection of delicious cakes and refreshments throughout the day.
Our event will see the official unveiling of our site’s unique new show home and customer lounge, both feature a range of upcycled and recycled furniture, as well as handmade and locally sourced furnishings and upholstery.
The interiors also reflect the wider biodiversity of our site and incorporate a lot of greenery and plant life.
We have commissioned Rachel Nacer, from Rasalo Interiors, and Sarah Mather, of Interiors by Casa, to design and furnish our show home and customer lounge.
Our Church Farm development is being built with a mix of traditional, local materials including brick, stone and wood each with unique features. All are wheelchair accessible and built to accommodate future accessibility needs.
Our site also has a higher-than-average biodiversity net gain and incorporates natural landscaping to encourage and protect local wildlife, including the introduction of badger corridors.
Reflecting our commitment to sustainability, our homes will not use fossil fuel boilers, moving instead to more environmentally friendly heating solutions with solar panels and air source heat pumps, to help encourage residents with living a greener way of life.
All the houses will have an EPC rating of A, giving every homeowner a greater level of comfort, with the potential to reduce heating costs.
A new cycle link between Radley and Oxford via Kennington will also be part of our development along with additional public open spaces, public transport infrastructure and pedestrian crossing areas – all aimed at encouraging greener lifestyle choices.
All attendees will also have the opportunity to get their bicycles marked, free of charge to help protect them from bike theft.
Our site will include 84 affordable homes; 21 of which will be shared ownership and the remaining 63 will form part of an affordable rent scheme in partnership with South Oxfordshire Housing Association, with 156 properties available to buy on the open market.
