Award-winning house builder Crest Nicholson South this week held a special launch event to mark the opening of the first show home at its new luxury Tall Trees development at Bolnore Village, West Sussex.

The beautiful three bedroom ‘Hamsterley’ house type was unveiled by the sales team to members of the public and the local community on 13th June, with guests treated to glasses of prosecco and canapés to toast the opening.

The ‘Hamsterley’ is a luxury family home set across three floors, with a stunning main bedroom which occupies the entire top floor of the property, boasting its own ensuite bathroom as well as a dressing area. Downstairs, it features a spacious living/dining room with beautiful patio doors opening out into the garden.

Tall Trees is the latest chapter in the success story that is Bolnore Village; a blossoming sought-after countryside development close to Haywards Heath.

The development consists of two-bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five-bedroom houses, whose styles encompass large detached executive-style properties, semi-detached family homes and mews homes.

This newest phase merges seamlessly into the flourishing community of Bolnore Village, as well as into the surrounding landscape and is designed to appear that it has evolved over generations.

Christine Tiernan, Sales & Marketing Manager, Crest Nicholson South, said the new Tall Trees development embraces the beauty of the popular neighbouring Bolnore Village development. She commented: “The development offers something very special with a wide range of homes to suit all budgets in what promises to be a truly beautiful setting, so we’re expecting a lot of interest and a large number of reservations during this first phase.

“All of the properties benefit from that quintessentially English village feel, with a relaxing pace of life set against the backdrop of soothing views across the open countryside and South Downs.

“The town of Haywards Heath is just a short distance away, making it ideal for commuters with trains into London Bridge taking 47 minutes, and 11 minutes to Gatwick Airport – perfect for those who regularly travel abroad or work at the airport.

“The site is also wonderfully located for families with children of school age, with excellent local schools including the recently opened Bolnore Village Primary School - the first self-governing parent-promoted primary school in the entire country.”

At the heart of the development sits a picturesque village green with seating and children’s play area where all of the residents can get together.  

Woodland is a prominent feature in Bolnore Village and the site is surrounded by ancient wooded areas including Ashenground and Reading Woods, ready and waiting to be explored on foot or by bike on the many footpaths and cycle ways.

Meanwhile, the nearby town of Haywards Heath is a thriving centre offering excellent shopping, dining out and many other attractions for children and grown-ups alike.

The main shopping centre is The Orchards, and there are plenty of other retail choices throughout the town, including The Broadway and Commercial Square, as well as a large Sainsbury’s supermarket.
