The Hollies bear the crown when it comes to modern living in the beautiful Lancashire countryside.

This latest development by the award-winning Kingswood Homes is located in the rural village of Forton with its primary school and pub, yet is close to Lancaster, Garstang and Preston.

‘The Hollies is ideal for people who live in the centre of a town or city like Lancaster but would like to move to quite a small development in a semi-rural setting which is still convenient for the motorway,’ said Kingswood head of sales, Lesley Myers.

Inspired by traditional Lancashire farmsteads and barns, The Hollies features 38 three-, four- and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached properties combining charm and character with the latest in interior home technology.

Situated on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, The Hollies is perfect for anyone looking for an escape to the country and the opportunity to put their own stamp on a brand new home.

And talking of stamps, now is an ideal time to buy, thanks to the Stamp Duty holiday which runs until March 31st, 2021. Help to Buy is also available on selected plots and there’s affordable housing too.

Lancashire Life viewed both show homes at The Hollies - the three bedroom, Haybarn 3 and the four bedroom, Byre 4.

On entering both properties, the first impressive feature is the spacious hallway. In Byre 4, this leads to the wonderfully light and contemporary kitchen/dining room with fittings including a cooker and microwave oven as standard. This room and the adjacent living room both have lovely views of the low maintenance gardens.

In Haybarn 3, the living room is at the front of the property with the spacious kitchen/dining room looking out to the back garden. The ground floor of both properties boasts a utility room/wc and storage space.

Upstairs at Byre 4 is the stunning en-suite master bedroom complete with separate dressing area alongside three other double bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom with separate drench shower and bath.

Haybarn 3 also boasts a spacious en-suite master bedroom upstairs as well as two double bedrooms and a bathroom perfect for a long relaxing soak. There’s additional storage space upstairs in both properties too.

But the real beauty of all homes at The Hollies is their flexibility as Kingswood’s new and exciting Shape Your Home concept allows you to truly personalise your home with a variety of floor plans and interior layouts.

Hallways can make way for a more open plan look and the number of bedrooms can be changed in most properties. The flexible floorplans cater for those who might require a home office, a play room or an extra bathroom.

‘Shape Your Home is unique because it delivers homes to fit different lifestyles and it has been well received by people who’ve already bought properties at The Hollies,’ said Lesley.

Kingswood Homes strive to provide customers with a high quality specification on all properties. Integrated music systems, oak doors, solid oak worktops, central heating, double glazing, choices of kitchens, floor tiles, wall tiles and carpets along with fully landscaped gardens, are included as standard as are garages and/or parking spaces.

All properties at The Hollies are designed and built to meet current building and NHBC thermal regulations and come with a 10 year building warranty.

Set around a pleasant, open green space complete with pond, The Hollies reflects Kingswood Homes belief in the importance of people’s wellbeing with more open space to enjoy outside and more space to live inside.

It’s a combination which has seen Kingswood Homes win several prestigious industry awards including ‘Best Development in the North West’ at the Insider Residential Property Awards 2018 and ‘Best Residential Development’ at the LABC NW Building Excellence Awards 2019, both for Green Hills, Blackburn.

Kingswood Homes was established near Preston in 2009 to create better new homes designed with the customer’s needs at heart whether you are a first-time buyer, a family growing, relocating or downsizing.

They even operate an Assisted Move scheme for those who require help to sell their own property so the move to The Hollies goes smoothly.

Homes at The Hollies are priced from £219,995. Appointments to view are available Thursday-Monday, 10am-5pm and can be made online, by calling 01524 233775 or emailing
