James Rowntree, Managing Director of Montreaux Homes, said:  “We are delighted to conclude our purchase of this site so that we can deliver this small and exclusive collection of new homes.  

"Our plans will create an attractive and peaceful new community that makes the most of its setting with surrounding woodland.  The properties will come in a range of sizes and layouts to suit different incomes and affordability.  

"We look forward to welcoming the first new residents towards the middle of 2023.”

The new homes will include a range of energy efficient appliances to keep utility bills low, which includes air source heat pumps. Electric car charging will also be installed.

Richard Rowsell, Land Director at Montreaux Homes, said:  “The site is at a key location on London Road as part of the sensitively designed extension to the edge of Binfield, where residents can experience an excellent lifestyle.  

"The development typifies the style of high-quality development that Montreaux creates, building inspiring new places for the long term.  

"Montreaux has a strong track record of development across the home counties, and we are actively seeking to purchase further land in the area.”
