zero carbon ready homes

The first zero carbon ready homes at Hayfield’s £25m development in Clophill, Bedfordshire have officially launched

The first release of 50 zero carbon ready homes at Hayfield Lakes are now available for off-plan sales.

Hayfield’s £25m development, located next to a new 292-acre nature reserve and lake in the Bedfordshire village of Clophill, offers a range of three and four-bedroom family homes priced from £575,000 – £870,000.

Two-bedroom bungalows and five-bedroom executive homes will be included in future releases and Hayfield’s largest house design – The Eaton – will be introduced.

Timber and red brickwork detailing

Hayfield Lakes has been designed with a ‘high degree of consideration to the local vernacular’, with features including timber and brick detailing. Predominantly heritage red brickwork will be complemented by dark grey feature window frames, traditional brown and grey roof tiles, and render in key locations.

Energy-efficient underfloor heating, air source heat pumps and EV charging points

The zero carbon ready homes feature air source heat pumps, energy-efficient underfloor heating, electric vehicle fast-charging points, and fibre optic broadband.

Clophill Lakes Nature Reserve for community use

Hayfield’s development will also incorporate Public Open Space, new habitats for wildlife, a children’s play area, and the vast majority of existing trees and hedgerows will be retained and enhanced. A new community facility, Clophill Lakes Nature Reserve, is currently being developed by The Greensand Trust.

Kelly Sharman, sales and marketing director of WhatHouse? ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ Hayfield said:

“The superior quality and design of our Hayfield Lakes homes reflects the unique location – on the edge of a waterside nature reserve.

Zero-carbon ready specification enables homeowners to enjoy an eco-efficient lifestyle

“Delivering lakeside living to this charming Bedfordshire village is an honour, and we are proud that the zero-carbon ready specification will enable future homeowners to enjoy an eco-efficient lifestyle.

“In contrast to the highly sophisticated interiors, the architectural detailing for the 50 homes will be traditional, to maximise kerb appeal and reflect Clophill’s plethora of period properties.

“The early interest in Hayfield Lakes is very high and we expect to have a handful of homes reserved within the first week.

“Appointments are being made on a first come, first served basis, enabling proceedable buyers to choose their preferred home and plot, while benefitting from pre-show-home prices. The first houses will then be available to move into during the autumn.”
