Why you should consider a move to Shiplake Meadows?
There are a few good reasons why Shiplake Meadows could be the perfect choice for your next move …
A highly sustainable place to live
Environmental sustainability and low cost of resident ownership is a key advantage of living at Shiplake Meadows.
The village has been designed from inception to sit within a new integrated parkland landscape with over 3,000 new trees, together with an orchard and residents community vegetable plots.
All residents' private car parking spaces will be enabled to facilitate EV charging points for those owners with electric vehicles, with public use charging points available for visitors to the clubhouse.
The homes have been designed with low cost of ownership in mind, with very high levels of insulation in conjunction with the latest design of Air Source heat pumps, to provide both hot water and underfloor heating superior to that of a traditional wall mounted gas boiler system.
Building communities to enhance residents’ lifestyles
The Clubhouse, which will be placed at the centre of the village, will act as a communal social space where villagers and guests can come together to enjoy all the community offers.
The building is reminiscent of a large barn, with dark timber cladding and a grand ‘barn style’ door leading to the clubhouse entrance. At both ends of the building, floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a patio area, complete with outdoor seating areas overlooking the beautiful flowerbeds organised throughout the village.
Designed with local architectural character in mind
The architectural design approach of the homes and communal buildings has been designed with the local architectural character of Shiplake and adjacent Henley-on-Thames in mind.
Complete with gables and timber cladding, each home will have either full-width balconies, terraces or private gardens, allowing the village's residents to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings and the landscaped gardens, which are adorned with mature native trees and wildflowers.
