New homes in Lincoln to be named after Barons
We are celebrating our involvement in last summer’s Barons’ Charter Trail in Lincoln by naming a collection of new homes after the Barons.
We sponsored the Construction Baron, one of 25 Barons which stood in pride of place in Lincoln city centre from June to September to mark the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.
We are marking this by naming the homes at our new LN6 development in Lincoln after the Barons.
LN6 is being built on land off Westbrooke Road, alongside Tritton Road to the south west of the city centre. The development will comprise a total of 52 new homes.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We are pleased to have started work on site at LN6.
“This is our first development in Lincoln, and we were proud to sponsor a Baron on the trail last summer, so we thought it was only fitting to mark this by naming the housetypes at LN6 after the Barons.
“At LN6, we are building a variety of homes – from apartments and houses to bungalows – to suit the needs of a range of buyers.
“Work is progressing well and the first homes are already starting to take shape.”
LN6 will include two and three-bedroom houses, two-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom bungalows. The first homes are set to be released for sale in March this year.
Each of the housetypes has been named after one of the group of 25 Barons who forced King John to sign the Magna Carta in the 13th Century.
The apartments will be named De Vere and two-bedroom houses will be named De Ros.
Three different designs of three-bedroom homes will be released for sale – the De Lacy, De Vesci and De Bohun – while the design of the bungalows will be named the De Clare.
In total, 11 homes at LN6 will be made available as affordable housing. The development will include open spaces and new pedestrian and cycle routes through the site, linking existing homes to Tritton Road.
We will make various financial contributions through the Section 106 planning agreement for LN6, including a payment of £30,000 to go towards education provision.
