Efficient, modern design

Freemens Meadow is one of the most exciting developments outside London, offering a range of contemporary designed homes with views over landscaped gardens and the river Soar.

With stylish sun friendly building designs, often likened to desirable Californian developments, the site was rated as exemplary by CABE (Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment) in its 2010 housing audit.

The build so far

The sixth phase of Freemens Meadow is due to arrive this Autumn. We will be bringing back our unique range of carefully designed two and three homes specifically for this development. These modern riverside homes are ideal for working professionals, first time buyers and growing families.
