Lovedon Fields

Kings Worthy, Winchester – Prices from £467,500

Year of Completion: 2017

Homes: Exciting new custom build homes by HAB Housing, come to Kings Worthy, Winchester – ranging from 3- to 5-bedrooms.

HAB stands for Happiness Architecture Beauty: These are the values HAB holds dear. Set up by Kevin McCloud in 2007 to challenge the way identikit volume housing was built in the UK, the houses and places built respect the local context and biodiversity; are strongly rooted in history, landscape and the community; and are sustainable, beautiful and a pleasure to live in.

Lowdown: This semi-rural site on the delightfully-named Lovedon Lane sits on the edge of the historic village of Kings Worthy, just two miles from the cathedral city of Winchester. Alongside the homes, there will be sports facilities together with allotments, wildflower meadows and a village green.

Outside: We especially love schemes which are landscape-led; where the homes sit in a well-considered and well-sculpted environment. Alongside the proposed development of 50 new open market and affordable homes, HAB will enable the doubling in size of the adjacent local park and deliver a range of wider community facilities, which will include allotments, a new biodiverse country park area, a circular running track and stacks more.

How to pay for it: Mortgage finance is readily available for custom builders and it can be selected to suit your circumstances as with traditional mortgage products. Our mortgage advice partner Buildstore Mortgage Services can gather information about the perfect finance deal for your own custom build. And don’t forget that as stamp duty may only be payable on part of the value of your finished custom built home, you could make financial savings in the process.

Stamp Duty Benefits: Under the HAB model there are two contracts – one contract for you to buy the land on which your house will be built – known as the Plot Sale Contract – and the second is a contract to get the house itself built – the Build Out Agreement. This approach is similar to the process of self-building and could allow you make a significant financial saving through the relevant stamp duty tax treatment.

Peace of mind: Your new home will come with a ten year structural warranty. This is an insurance policy protecting you from structural defects, providing peace of mind that your home has been built to the highest standards. In parallel to this, your home also will be protected by HAB’s developer warranty for a period of two years after legal completion. This covers a much wider range of issues and includes 24 hour cover for emergencies. View terms & conditions here.
