At Pearce Fine Homes, we always take time to look beyond the bricks and mortar to the things that we also consider to be important. The impact of new housing on the local area, the environment and the community are always taken into consideration as we believe in making truly sustainable homes. When planning our new Parsonage Lea development, it was so important to us to be sensitive to the beautiful surroundings and to support the local community. Now that the development is in full swing, we are also thrilled to be able to tell you about a couple of local projects we are supporting.
Laying the foundations
The foundations for five of the properties are now in place, with just one more to go. The final property, The Dart, is the biggest of the six, boasting five bedrooms and four bathrooms. After so much time spent planning, we are delighted to see how the work is now progressing on site. Once the foundations are laid, it is amazing how quickly things can move forward, with three of the properties’ main structures almost complete.
Looking at the aerial view you can just about see where the central bee-friendly relaxation garden will eventually go. Ensuring local wildlife are considered and looked after is a key part of the process for us. We want to ensure our homes are sensitive to the landscape and the environment.
The exterior of the first property, The Yealm, is nearing completion now with a fully tiled roof and the windows now in. The Harbourne and The Tavy are not far behind. With these features in place, you can already start to see how, nestled amongst the ‘Devon Banks’, these homes provide the perfect blend of modern living with the benefits of traditional Devon charm.
Nurturing a love of outdoor learning
As a local family business, supporting the community has always been important to us. One of our Directors, Laura, is a school governor herself and understands first-hand how impactful support from the community can be for a school. We are, therefore, delighted to be working with a local primary school, Newton Ferrers C of E Primary School, and supporting their PTFA project to plan, design and build a shelter for their outdoor learning area and forest school. Forest School is a wonderful initiative to encourage children to extend their learning outside of the classroom and teach them through nature. From discovering “little beasts” to fire safety, forest school and nurturing a love for outdoor learning can have such a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of children as they grow. Pearce Fine homes are always keen to support anything that encourages muddy wellies and rosy cheeks.
As a family of keen sailors ourselves, Pearce Fine Homes are delighted to be able to support the infamous local River Yealm Regatta. Established over 100 years ago, the long-standing tradition which sees rivals Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo fisherman battle it out, is a sight to behold and an event for your diary this summer.
