Green Acres at Alrewas street scene

Award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson has less than 25 two, three and four-bedroom homes remaining at its popular development, Green Acres in Alrewas, Staffordshire. Situated within a historic village, amongst picturesque surroundings, the development is ideal for a range of buyers looking for a new home in a countryside setting.  


Among the last remaining homes is the three-bedroom Alder, which opens into a spacious hallway flanked by a large open-plan kitchen/dining room spanning one side of the ground floor. Across the hallway is an expansive living room with French doors leading into the garden, the perfect space for hosting and entertaining guests. The main bedroom boasts a built-in wardrobe and en-suite, whilst the second double bedroom and single bedroom, which provides a flexible space for young children or for use as a home office, are served by a family bathroom.


Also available is the four-bedroom Calder, a generously proportioned home ideal for families looking for extra space. The ground floor hosts a large living room which opens into the garden, a kitchen/breakfast room, a dedicated dining room, study and separate toilet. The layout provides great flexibility for families with children of all ages; the study makes the perfect home office space, whilst the dining room has the potential to become anything from a home gym to additional bedroom space. Prospective buyers will also be able to explore the show home on site.


Vanessa MacNee, Sales and Marketing Director of Crest Nicholson Midlands, comments: “With over 70% of homes sold, we have seen a huge amount of interest in our Green Acres development. Since its launch, it has become a thriving addition to the local community, with a range of buyers, from downsizers all the way to first time homeowners and young families. Our purchasers living at Green Acres have been attracted to the amazing countryside location, ideal for those who enjoy the rolling open spaces and quaint village living in Staffordshire.


“We have several schemes available to help purchasers make their move, such as our bespoke SmoothMove and Part Exchange schemes which are designed to support buyers with previous homes to sell, whilst our Deposit Boost and the industry-developed Deposit Unlock schemes are there to provide easier access to mortgages for those saving for large deposits. We expect the last homes to sell quickly, so would encourage any interested buyers to get in touch with a member of the sales team as soon as possible if you would like to receive further information.”


Nestled within the Alrewas conservation area, the development offers buyers relaxed surroundings with the River Trent and the Trent and Mersey Canal providing walking opportunities across the Staffordshire countryside. Green Acres itself is also home to large green spaces, creating a perfect space for families to enjoy. For those with young children, All Saints’ Primary School is found in the centre of the village, while the development also falls in the catchment area of the John Taylor High School in Barton-under-Needwood, rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted.

There is also plenty to do to keep active with a park, local cricket club and thriving tennis club nearby.


Commuters are well catered for with nearby access to the A38, A515, A50 and M6, while rail links are available at Lichfield Trent Valley and City train stations, providing direct access to Birmingham in around 40 minutes and London Euston in under two hours.
