Second phase of luxury development to commence
With just three properties on Phase 1 still available, Manor Fields, the much sought after development in Washingborough by GS Jones & Sons will see work begin on Phase 2 this year.
Lincolnshire Life has previously featured several properties by this long established, family-run company but this most recent venture, Manor Fields, in this highly desirable village is their largest development to date.
Stephen Jones, director and one of the three sons of the firm’s founder, Glyn Stuart Jones, spoke to Lincolnshire Life about the newest properties to be released on what is an eight year scheme to provide 64 high specification homes on the 11 acre site. “Our priority has always been to ensure the quality and individuality of each property and plots 29, 27 and 23 are no exception,” he said.
Plot 29, ‘The Burford’, is an impressive three/four bedroomed detached, family home constructed in Hoskins (Old Victorian) Brick set in landscaped gardens with driveway and garage. Accommodation on the ground floor comprises a vestibule entrance, dining hall, garden room and living room. The living room could be altered to provide an extra bedroom or study. On this floor is also a breakfast kitchen and utility. Stairs in the vestibule lead to a galleried landing giving access to a master bedroom with en-suite, two double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom. ‘The Burford’ benefits from PVCu double-glazed vertical sash windows and under floor heating. This home is available to reserve priced at £495,000.
‘The Rectory’ is an impressive detached five bedroomed family home available on Plot 23. The property offers excellent spacious, contemporary living comprising on the ground floor: a main reception hall, WC, lounge, dining room, open plan kitchen, dining and garden room, snug and utility room. Stairs lead from the hall to a first floor galleried landing and then to five bedrooms. There is an en-suite and dressing room to the master bedroom, as well as an en-suite and dressing area to the guest bedroom. Three further bedrooms and a generously sized family bathroom complete this floor. Externally ‘The Rectory’ is situated in a pleasant position with landscaped and lawned gardens. There is a limestone wall to the front with private electric automated gates providing access to the driveway and a double integral garage. This property also benefits from uPVC sliding sash windows. Priced at £745,000, this is a unique opportunity to purchase an impressive family home.
Also available is plot 27, ‘The Dunston’, priced at £695,000. This impressive three storey, six bedroomed detached family home offers spacious, well planned family living accommodation comprising: a main reception hall, lounge, dining room, open plan kitchen and living/dining area, utility room and first floor landing leading to four bedrooms, en-suite bathroom and dressing room to the master bedroom and family bathroom. The second floor landing leads to two further bedrooms and en-suite. Outside there are landscaped and lawned gardens. To the front of the property there is also a limestone wall with private electric and automated gates providing access to the driveway and integral double garage.
Stephen Jones explained that properties in Manor Fields have been designed to reflect the rural location of the site and Phase 2 will include construction of a group of contemporary barns. “We have purposely avoided creating an ‘estate’ feel to this development and want to retain and enhance the appearance and vernacular of the architecture of this charming Lincolnshire village. The crewyard will feature a small cluster of three ‘barns’, recreated to be as authentic as possible with all the benefits of new properties.” These properties on plots 32, 33 and 34 are due for completion by the end of 2021.
The 11-acre Manor Fields site is located on the edge of Washingborough with easy access to the heart of this vibrant community and its convenient amenities while still offering a rural, tranquil setting. Each home is unique and combines bespoke design with GS Jones & Sons’ usual high standard of craftsmanship; Lincolnshire Limestone fills the walls, reclaimed bricks give character to the properties while natural slate and clay pantile roofs enclose the structures and chimney stacks to complete the executive homes. The company’s ethos of striving for excellence and creating homes of distinction by combining bespoke design with quality craftsmanship has been their hallmark for more than 50 years. Viewings can be arranged through Mundys Estate Agents, Lincoln.
GS Jones & Sons are working with Kingsmead Designs at Manor Fields to ensure that each property will be unique, with bespoke design, internally and externally, with outstanding attention to detail throughout the phases.
Washingborough and the Manor Fields development are located within close proximity to the city of Lincoln. Access to Lincoln will be made even more convenient with the new A15 bypass opening in 2020, as well as easier links to the A1 and A46 making the journey from the South and the Midlands by road quicker than before.
Lincoln offers a wealth of history and culture and has become a very popular destination for tourists and those wanting to take advantage of the good schools and educational opportunities as well as the attractive lifestyle which can be enjoyed in the county.
The Brayford Waterfront is England’s oldest inland harbour and offers a great selection of eating, drinking and entertainment venues. The University of Lincoln is situated in the heart of this beautiful city and is ranked 22nd overall in the UK in The Guardian University Guide 2019.
