April sees the launch of lo­cal house builder Abel Homes’ lat­est site: The Limes at Lit­tle Mel­ton, which of­fers a stun­ning range of 28 con­tem­po­rary, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient two-, three-, four- and five-bed­room homes

EDP Norfolk - - Property -

JUST six miles south west of Nor­wich, se­cluded Lit­tle Mel­ton is a lovely lo­ca­tion which con­ve­niently con­nects the city and the coun­try­side. Just a mile from Nor­wich’s south­ern by­pass, the city cen­tre is 19 min­utes’ drive, whilst the Nor­folk and Nor­wich Univer­sity Hospi­tal, Nor­wich Re­search Park and the Univer­sity are all close by.

Yet Lit­tle Mel­ton re­tains its vil­lage feel, com­plete with shop, pub, pre-school and pri­mary school, as well as a thriv­ing vil­lage hall and lively pro­gramme of so­cial events. From here it is just 45 min­utes to the coast.

The Limes is named af­ter a spe­cial Ju­bilee lime tree planted close to the site by the vicar of Lit­tle Mel­ton in 1887, to mark Queen Vic­to­ria’s Golden Ju­bilee. The site is sit­u­ated near the vil­lage hall, lo­cated next to a play­ground, foot­ball pitch and ten­nis court.

Of­fer­ing gen­er­ous sized plots, the mix of houses and bun­ga­lows are de­signed for modern day liv­ing, with ‘fi­bre to the premises’ broad­band fit­ted to ev­ery home. All of the new homes will have the top ‘A’ rat­ing for en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, in­clud­ing fea­tures such as photovolta­ic so­lar pan­els, tripleglaz­ed win­dows and high lev­els of in­su­la­tion.

The new homes all come with fit­ted ap­pli­ances and floor cov­er­ings through­out, with the three, four and five-bed­room homes fea­tur­ing un­der­floor heating on the ground floor for com­fort, con­ve­nience and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency.

As part of the de­vel­op­ment, Abel Homes is cre­at­ing a pub­lic open space on the site, and – as the fam­ily-owned firm does on all its sites – will com­mis­sion a piece of pub­lic art­work to pro­vide a fo­cal point for the new com­mu­nity.
