Phase 5 under construction
This scheme, which will ultimately deliver 153 homes in Kew, Merseyside by mid-2021, has transformed a former brownfield site on land adjacent to Southport Hospital into a thriving community.
Located off Town Lane, Fernley Green has been built on behalf of Torus and is suitable for first-time buyers, families and downsizers.
It offers people the opportunity to live in a sought-after area of Southport without overstretching themselves financially, allowing families and people with local connections to remain in the area and live close to extended family members.
The development is shared ownership led, but rather than being limited to one type of home or tenure, the development also offers homes for affordable and private rent.
Comprising two, three and four-bedroom homes, and two-bedroom apartments, the scheme has six different house-types of varying heights, materials and design details to create strong visual interest.
The energy-efficient homes were designed to be spacious inside and out, offering open-plan kitchen and dining spaces looking on to rear gardens, as well as double bedrooms.
The homes are arranged around four separate cul-de-sacs and benefit from good sized gardens for recreation, relaxation and play, but are also large enough for residents and tenants to grow their own produce.
There is a large area of open public space on the site for residents to use, as well as a cycle path link.
