Legal & General : Modular Homes opens Selby show homes to public

07/15/2021 | 04:03am EDT

15 Jul 2021

Legal & General Modular Homes announces that it has opened its brand-new modular show homes for the public to view at its Portholme scheme in Selby.

102 highly efficient homes have been built using precision engineering and high-quality sustainable materials from Legal & General's modular factory in Sherburn in Elmet. Delivering a mix of high-quality 2/3-bedroom houses and 1/2-bedroom apartments, it aims to enhance the urban fabric of Selby and create a thriving new neighbourhood in the heart of this historic market town.

The new homes at Portholme, which have been developed in partnership with Selby District Council, exceed nationally described space standards and have been carefully designed to achieve Energy Performance Certificate Standard A, currently only attained by around 1% of new homes. A combination of photovoltaic cells and high-quality build standards will bring significant energy savings for residents of the new homes. Materials are sustainably sourced and the sensitive landscaping at Portholme also adds to biodiversity.

The homes are located on Portholme Road in the heart of Selby town. Just a short stroll to the historic Selby Abbey and the town's high street shops, supermarkets, traditional pubs and a lively selection of independent cafes and bars. Portholme's at the centre of Selby life, and only a 10-minute walk from the railway station, with mainline trains to Leeds, York and a direct service to London.

The Portholme scheme includes up to 30% affordable housing and will showcase how innovation in the industry can bring a step change to UK residential development, whilst delivering a sought-after place to live for a wide range of buyers.

With a standardised approach to manufacturing, quality, efficiency and productivity is driven up, and costs are driven down. Modular construction offers an impactful solution to the UK housing crisis, supporting UK jobs and helping to meet the Government's objective to build more affordable carbon-friendly housing. Together with this scheme in Selby and its other schemes in Bristol, Broadstairs and North Horsham, Legal & General Modular Homes' pipeline is delivering 670 new homes.

There are two new fully-fitted show homes alongside the sales and marketing suite, which is now open to the public on Wednesday - Monday. Viewings are currently by appointment only via the website www.lifebuiltin.co.uk/portholme. The scheme is set for completion by the end of 2021, and first residents are looking to be welcomed into their new homes this autumn.

Having seen these new homes being developed and built in our factory just up the road by local employees, it's great to see them in place and becoming part of a community. The show homes look fantastic and we can't wait to welcome everyone to see the high-quality sustainable homes that we have created.
