One of Nor­folk’s most sought-after mar­ket towns

EDP Norfolk - - PROMOTION -

We of­ten hear con­cerns that new hous­ing will dam­age the char­ac­ter of our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, but in fact the op­po­site can be true: done prop­erly, new homes can en­hance the com­mu­nity, breath­ing life into lo­cal ameni­ties and at­tract­ing new peo­ple who are keen to get in­volved in vil­lage life.

Study after study has shown that the best qual­ity of life is to be found away from the city, and es­pe­cially in small mar­ket towns. In one of Nor­folk’s most sought-after mar­ket towns, those seek­ing a vi­brant com­mu­nity are be­ing of­fered the last chance to snap up a stun­ning new home built by a Nor­folk-based house builder.

There is now just a small op­por­tu­nity left to be part of the ‘fam­ily’ at The Hops in Hing­ham, Abel Homes’ de­vel­op­ment in the lovely Ge­or­gian mar­ket town 15 miles to the west of Nor­wich, where the Nor­folk firm is build­ing 88 fam­ily homes.

Named by the Lon­don Evening Stan­dard as one of the most at­trac­tive places in the UK to live, Hing­ham is ev­ery­thing you could ask of an English mar­ket town, right down to its vil­lage green sur­rounded by a thriv­ing pub, a clutch of in­de­pen­dent shops in­clud­ing a butcher and post of­fice, and a 14th cen­tury church.

With a good pri­mary school and play­group, a pop­u­lar sports cen­tre, and around 30 dif­fer­ent clubs and so­ci­eties cater­ing for in­ter­ests as di­verse as archery, hand­bell ring­ing and Tae Kwon Do, it has a vi­brant com­mu­nity that those mov­ing into The Hops have been em­brac­ing en­thu­si­as­ti­cally.

Just one of the pos­i­tive views from a res­i­dent liv­ing in an Abel home at The Hops, Hing­ham.

The fam­i­lies who have moved into The Hops are en­joy­ing vil­lage life while at the same time breath­ing new life into lo­cal ameni­ties and the lo­cal com­mu­nity, as well as bring­ing a fi­nan­cial ben­e­fit to the town. It’s a great ex­am­ple of how sym­pa­thetic de­vel­op­ment by a lo­cal com­pany can en­hance our towns and vil­lages.

“In­spired de­sign, ful­fill­ing the needs of an ex­pand­ing com­mu­nity, with care and con­sid­er­a­tion for the sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment.”
