‘Aspirational Homes’ from Magenta Estate Agents are proud to present Spire View, a brand-new executive home with integral garage constructed by local builder Messrs CHBC Property Limited, a team of professionals with over 30 years’ experience developing property in and around East Northamptonshire. Spire View is well-located for the town centre amenities and enjoys an elevated position on the site of a former orchard affording front-facing views over the surrounding rooftops towards St Peter’s Church. *ANTICIPATED COMPLETION MAY 2021* INTRODUCTION
Spire View is one of just two brand-new architect-designed executive homes. THE AREA
The properties are both characterful yet contemporary, a combination of materials and exterior design influences have been used: the colour and style of the rustic ‘Ibstock’ brick, the stylish anthracite grey uPVC double-glazed doors and windows, and some unique architectural flourishes blend perfectly to create two aesthetically exceptional abodes.
Meticulous attention to detail has been paid to every aspect during the crafting of these stunning homes ensuring they are perfect for modern family living. At the heart of each home lie sociable and functional open-plan kitchen/living rooms featuring sleek high-gloss units, Quartz work surfaces, integrated appliances, and bi-fold doors which maximise light and afford views of the rear garden.
Both properties have been built with the environment very much at the forefront of their design including several energy-saving features. For example, recessed solar roof panels to supplement electricity usage, and air source heat pump systems that harness the environment’s natural elements to generate heat for the hot-water and central heating systems.
