Award winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson has broken ground at a brand new development, Cringleford Heights, in the charming village of Cringleford, Norfolk. With first completions expected in late 2023, the first phase will comprise 153 homes of the total 800 planned for the area.


The first phase will offer a collection of two, three and four bedroom properties and 12 different house types, including 35% affordable housing. Upon completion of the development, alongside residential homes, Cringleford Heights will also consist of a new primary school, allotments, play areas, a community orchard and allotments, among other on-site facilities.


Located just five miles southwest of the thriving Norwich City Centre, the development will appeal to all prospective buyers including first time buyers, young families and professional commuters alike looking for modern, high-quality homes. As with all Crest Nicholson properties, the homes available at Cringleford Heights will be designed to reflect the architecture style of housing in the local area, with the use of red bricks, and set within plenty of green space.


Karen Coulson, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, commented: “As part of our continued commitment to invest in new homes within in-demand areas, we are excited to have broken ground at Cringleford Heights, adding to Crest Nicholson’s already strong offering for home buyers in the East of England.


“With completions due to take place from late 2023, the homes will form part of the wider Cringleford Heights development, which is set to be a vibrant, flourishing community in a sought-after location. Given the popularity of the local area and the range of house types on offer, we expect the development to be popular with a wide range of buyers, from first time buyers to upsizers, looking to enjoy the best of both worlds; a peaceful village community whilst being well-connected to everything Norwich has to offer.”


Situated in the village of Cringleford and just a stone’s throw from Norwich, residents of Cringeford Heights will benefit from the very best of peaceful village life, while also having access to all the amenities they could need on their doorstep, including local supermarkets, shops, and a post office, plus plenty more in Norwich. For families, popular local schools including Cringleford Primary School (rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted) are ideally located, and the University of East Anglia is also just a five-minute drive away.

Prices for the two, three and four bedroom homes are expected to be released in Summer 2023 with Deposit Unlock, Part Exchange and SmoothMove available on select properties. To find out more and for updates on the development’s progress, please call 01603 385 360 or visit
