Hart in Hampshire has been named the best place to live in the UK in five of the past six years, yet the average home in the district costs 56% less than in Wandsworth, Central London, 50% less than in Richmond Upon Thames, South West London, and a staggering 30% less than in Greater London, according to new research by Knight Frank.
Homebuyers wishing to avoid peak prices in the capital and surrounding Home Counties, without compromise, should look no further than this hidden Hampshire district. For those seeking for an exceptional combination of excellent connectivity, a picturesque environment and a beautifully-designed new home, Hartland Village has now launched.
This superb development is a rare opportunity to buy a St Edward home in an exciting new destination, just 34 minutes by train from London. It will comprise a stunning collection of new houses and apartments, intertwined with an abundance of green open space, a magnificent 70-acre country park and a new two-form primary school.
Paul Vallone, Executive Chairman, St Edward, comments: "We're incredibly excited to have launched Hartland Village and all it has to offer to homebuyers in the local area, surrounding home counties, London and beyond. This really is an exceptional new destination - St Edward will be creating homes of excellent quality in an outstanding natural setting, yet the new village will deliver so much more than that. Hartland Village will provide public areas, plentiful access to green space and nature as well as the ideal facilities to build a thriving and sustainable community. The lifestyle on offer means this isn't just a place - it's a village, and a home, for life."
Lakeside is the first phase of homes, which sets the scene for Hartland Village and provides a superb mix of one and two-bedroom apartments and three, four and five-bedroom houses. A traditionally-inspired humped-back bridge will lead residents over a new feature lake; an impressive and idyllic entrance into the new village.
Over time, St Edward's vision for Hartland Village will see it provide the social spaces and facilities that will foster a great community spirit and encourage friendships to build among residents, promoting active lifestyles and mental wellbeing.
The development will include a traditional village centre located at its heart, accommodating healthcare, fitness and wellbeing facilities as well as everyday essentials; it will become a hub for the community. The 28 acres of open space within Hartland Village will also include a village green, play areas and linear park, and trails and pathways linking the development to the new country park and wider local area.
Tim Foreman, Managing Director Land & New Homes at Romans Group comments: "Hartland Village is a real first for this area of Hampshire. In recent years, Hart's popularity with buyers in the South East and London has increased thanks to its high standards of living, proximity to the capital and yet relatively reasonable prices compared to the more well-known commuter destinations such as Guildford. However Hartland Village raises the bar, bringing not only new homes for people of all ages and aspirations but nurturing a community and encouraging healthy happy lifestyles for its residents."
Hartland Village is located just nine minutes by car to Fleet or Farnborough Main train stations, where services into London Waterloo take from 40 minutes and 34 minutes respectively. Trains from Farnborough North station, an 11-minute car journey away, travel to Guildford, Reading and Gatwick Airport.
