A Bird’s eye view of Holburne Park

Dramatic aerial drone photos show how the new neighbourhood of classically-designed homes is shaping up.
Francis Firmstone, director of Hardrock, the developers behind Holburne Park, answers a few frequently-asked questions from purchasers about the development.

What makes Holburne Park stand out?
“Designed by Robert Adams, the acclaimed architect who’s responsible for the Duchy of Cornwall’s Poundbury, we are enormously proud of the design and craftsmanship of the new homes. The facades are made of locally-sourced Bath stone, while natural slate roofs and timber windows mean the homes will blend in with the classical architecture of Bath.”

What about the location?
“The location is very special and one of the main reasons people are interested in living here. I never tire of the amazing views over Bath’s famous skyline and the site is set back from Warminster road, overlooking the peaceful Kennett and Avon Canal. You get the best of both worlds – the chance to live within easy walking distance of the city centre, whilst also been close to the wide, open countryside.”

What will they be like inside?
“Designed by local-interior designer, Honeycomb Designs, there are plenty of sleek features including hand-painted contemporary Neptune kitchens and underfloor heating on the ground floor of the houses.”

What sort of community can people expect?
“We’ve been particularly pleased by the range of buyers who’ve been attracted to live at Holburne Park – from professional couples buying their first home together, families with children and newly-retiring downsizers – and it promises to become a nicely-balanced community.”

Are there still homes available in phase one?
“Three quarters of the homes in the first phase have been sold but we still have a few three and four beds available and homes that are also eligible on the Government’s Help to Buy scheme. Three bed homes start from £545,000 and four bed properties start from £955,000.”
