Maslow Capital provided a £7.3m development loan, supporting Castlemore Homes with their housing project, consisting of 33 homes in the picturesque Village of Haddenham, Cambridgeshire.
The developer has collaboratively designed these attractive, sustainable homes to provide flexible spaces to suit each homeowners’ individual needs. Demonstrating their commitment to the environment, Castlemore Homes aim to have all their housing developments reach net zero carbon by 2025, with the developer putting in place thorough sustainability measure to reach this target. In addition to using sustainably certified timber and harvesting rainwater, each home will be fitted with air-source heat pumps, low energy pendant lighting or downlight to all rooms, integrated solar PV panels, passive windows and sophisticated remote energy management systems.
Significant to Maslow’s mission to deliver much needed affordable housing in the UK, 10 of the 33 homes will be classed as affordable and will be presold to a Housing Association. Furthermore, the majority of the scheme’s private units will qualify for the Governments Help to Buy scheme.
