PLANS to build 50 new homes on a country estate have been unveiled.

A mixture of traditional and modern properties are being built by Jones Homes in Nether Alderley after the company bought 6.3 acres of land at Alderley Park.

The development, to be known as Alderley Gardens, will transform two sites within the 400-acre Alderley Park country estate.

Jones Homes, which is based under two miles away in Alderley Edge, will build 33 homes on vacant land which was historically used as a kitchen garden.

The remaining 17 homes will be built within the former walled garden which sits on adjoining land.

Construction is about to start and the first homes are expected to be released for sale in the summer.

The housebuilder, which is part of The Emerson Group, secured planning consent for the development of three, four and five-bedroom homes in December.

The land deal was completed in February.

Mark Emerson Jones, deputy chairman of The Emerson Group, said: “Jones Homes will take great pride in delivering the sensitive redevelopment of a key site within this attractive parkland setting.

“Jones Homes is known for creating homes of exceptional quality and design, and this hallmark will be identifiable at Alderley Gardens.

“We have a long heritage in Cheshire and have earned a reputation for building attractive developments which take an architectural lead from the area.

“There will be a blend of traditional and contemporary designs to echo the new and converted listed buildings which now sit within Alderley Park.

“We anticipate this development attracting interest from people across Cheshire who are seeking a more balanced lifestyle.

“With leisure and dining facilities already in place, and Alderley Edge so close by, Alderley Gardens will offer a tranquil yet well-served community within one of Cheshire’s most sought-after areas.”

Alderley Park is home to a state-of-the-art gym, sports and leisure facilities, a pub, restaurants and coffee shops.

In line with planning agreements for the development, Jones Homes will be contributing £700,083 in the form of a community infrastructure levy.

The developer will also set aside 15 per cent of the homes at Alderley Gardens for key workers to reserve at a discounted price.
