ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2015

Project Detail

St James Gate - Phase 1, Anstey

Large Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2015 Winner

St James Gate is a development of 170 homes built by Davidsons Homes at Groby Road, Anstey. Phase 1 totals 68 homes. Davidsons Homes has since completed Phase 2 and is now selling homes in Phase 3.

The vision for St James Gate was to create
 a development of beautiful, carefully designed homes which provided a contemporary interpretation of the existing character of Anstey after studying architectural styles in the village.

The homes of various sizes and designs range from bungalows up to detached or semi-detached five-bedroom family homes. 

Project Overview

The site layout was designed to break up the development into small groupings of homes. All the areas are softened by a leafy network of green spaces and the retention of existing boundary and other hedgerows.

Public open space totals 2.4 hectares, including the creation of an area for new allotments and by a linear park on the northern section to act as a buffer between the new housing and existing properties.

Existing villagers are drawn into these green areas, by the connecting footpaths and the creation of a park positioned to serve them as well as the new residents.

Interiors have feature walls, a mix of strong colours, and a large variety in internal decorations and strong design features such as visible roof beams in some properties.
