Essentials on your doorstep

The houses at Madden Gardens are in a community-based development which offers green and rural surroundings, within easy reach of the town centre and convenient transport links. There are several great schools close to these new homes and nearby Letchworth Garden City train station means you can get to Cambridge in 34 minutes and London’s King’s Cross in less than 30 minutes.

Efficient, modern design

We’ve designed our homes way beyond the standard building regulations and in doing so we have achieved a Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 rating. To get that rating we have constructed our homes around the latest in eco and money saving designs. So that means using the most advanced insulation, quality modern workmanship, low-energy lighting and the A-rated boilers. 

Where supplied, appliances in kitchens are rated 'B' and above, and in the bathroom you’ll find dual flush toilets and water saving taps.  Outside there is environment friendly water butts, solar panels to help with your electricity bills. 

We’ll also give you a Home User Guide to help you improve the efficiency of your new home even further.

The build so far

With over half the development now occupied, Madden Gardens is really taking shape. The crescent houses are now complete with the construction team now working on the next phase of houses which will be ready Spring 2017.

Due to high levels of demand, each release sells out quickly, so book an appointment today.
