Work has started to build 40 new energy-efficient family homes in the heart of the village of Bawdeswell.  Paul LeGrice, managing director of Abel Homes, was joined by the firm’s production manager Robert Loudoun to cut the first sod on the site, off Hall Road.

The Norfolk-based house builder will be building a mixture of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes on the four acre site, which is situated behind the village’s popular Garden Centre.  Eight of the new homes will be provided as affordable homes.

The new homes will all have the top ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency, including features such as photo-voltaic solar panels, underfloor heating, triple glazing and high levels of insulation, and will also feature fibre broadband direct to each home.

As part of the development, Abel Homes will create a public open space on the site, and has also made a commitment to provide a piece of public artwork on every site where it builds homes.

Digging the first sod, Abel Homes managing director Paul LeGrice said, “We are delighted to be building new family homes in Bawdeswell, which is a delightful village which can trace its history back to the Domesday Book and beyond.

The new homes will be released for sale at the turn of the year.  Anyone interested in the new homes can register their interest at
