We are no strangers to Oakham – we’ve been building new homes there for several years. Farriers Reach is our latest development in the town, offering a new range of contemporary styled, energy-efficient homes. All of them are fitted with solar panels to generate electricity from sunlight, cutting carbon emissions and, importantly, also cutting your power bills!
There are two, three, four-bedroom properties to choose from on this edge-of-town site within the Oakham Heights ‘urban extension’. In addition to new housing, the plans include parks and open spaces, children's play areas, allotments and a new local centre. There will also be enhancements to the ecology of Barleythorpe Brook which runs through the site and improved transport links with new cycle, footpath and bus routes.
If you’re not familiar with Oakham, let us tell you that it is a pretty, traditional English town. It is the ‘capital’ of Rutland – the nation’s smallest county. Bustling with activity, it boasts a regular market twice a week with stalls selling locally produced meat, cheese, bread and eggs. If you’re having a day in town, a trip to the market or the monthly farmers’ market could coincide with a visit to one of the numerous cafes, restaurants and pubs.
For those interested in the history of the area, there are many beautiful and notable sites to explore such as Oakham Castle.
Rutland Water, which is England’s largest man-made lake, is close by. The reservoir provides renowned water sports facilities and stunning nature and wildfowl reserves. There is also an outdoor adventure centre and cycling and walking routes to enjoy.
Rutland has been voted the best rural place to live in the UK in the Halifax Rural Areas Quality of Life Survey.
Excellent road links bring the towns of Stamford, Melton Mowbray and Corby within easy reach. Leicester and Nottingham are within 35 miles. Oakham railway station provides links to Birmingham, Leicester, Peterborough, Cambridge and Stansted Airport.
For your peace of mind, all of our homes come with a ten-year insurance-backed guarantee.
