Introducing Shepperd’s View

A collection of sought-after plots, each enjoying an enviable position overlooking the estate’s largest lake, Wakeling Water. This sheltered location combines the serenity of lakeside living, with stunning views set amidst outstanding natural beauty.

Shepperd’s View is a tranquil retreat from city life, surrounded by semi-ancient forests and wetlands. The next phase of plots has now been released due to unprecedented demand and the swift sell-out of the initial phase of development.

These lakeside plots also benefit from outstanding facilities including a forthcoming al fresco spa, lakeside restaurant and leisure facility. Click here for details.

Lighthouse

Designed by architect Jerry Tate, the Light House gains its name from the intelligent rooflights and windows that bring in so much natural light. Its wrap-around deck offers stunning views over the lakes and nature reserve beyond. Constructed from Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs), the Lighthouse is the first Habitat First Group design to meet Passivhaus performance standards.
