Unique, executive homes in sought-after village location
A new development by GS Jones & Sons will create 64 new luxury homes in the village of Washingborough, close to Lincoln city centre.
Lincolnshire Life has previously featured several properties by this long established, family-run company but this most recent venture, Manor Fields, is their largest development to date.
The firm was established in 1966 by Glyn Stuart Jones and has built an unrivalled reputation for building and renovating executive homes in and around Lincolnshire. His three sons Stephen, Jonathan and Stuart all joined the company and are now directors. They each have their own unique skills and expertise, which this new generation has employed to expand the range of services to include substantial residential developments as well as individual properties.
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. The first phase is now underway, with five properties already reserved and four becoming available to reserve with Lincoln based Mundys Estate Agents. 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 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 fifty years.
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. Nine executive homes will be completed each year and the four currently available on phase one include the Manorfield and the Rectory, both five bedroomed homes, the Dunston, a three storey, six bedroomed property and the Pittswood, an impressive four bed detached family home
