ECO-FRIENDLY kitchens are being served up as part of a sustainable new development in Ross On Wye.
St Mary’s Garden Village is a blossoming community that will eventually feature 290 homes alongside facilities including allotments, walking trails with exercise equipment, wetland areas and more.
Show homes are now open on the Bluebell phase to help inspire buyers to live more sustainably. They include new eco-friendly kitchens, supplied by the Kitchen Bureau.
Sales director Adele McCoy explained: “St Mary’s Garden Village is part of a new generation of housing developments designed to be sustainable new communities where people will love living now and in the future. Provision of community facilities such as allotments and cycle hire will help residents reduce their impact on the environment, but building sustainably doesn’t stop at the doorstep.
“We share homeowners’ concerns about the environment and how what we do now impacts on the future. We’re working hard to reduce energy consumption and our overall carbon footprint and the partnership with the Kitchen Bureau at St Mary’s Garden Village is the latest step in our journey to delivering more environmentally friendly homes. They recognise that the kitchen is at the heart of the home, creating stylish yet practical spaces people will love to spend time cooking, eating and socialising in.
“Kitchens in the Bluebell phase will include highly energy efficient appliances and sustainably sourced units with in-cupboard recycling bins, making it easier for our homeowners to separate their waste.”
Based in Magor, the Edenstone Group is proud of its Welsh roots and keen to support local businesses where possible. The Kitchen Bureau is the largest independent kitchen retailer in Wales with Welsh rugby legend Glenn Webbe at its helm as managing sales director.
Glenn, a former Bridgend and Wales wing, was the first black player to play for Wales in a World Cup campaign and was the first British player to score a hat-trick in a Rugby World Cup
Speaking of his company’s involvement with the new homes being built at St Mary’s Garden Village, he said: “We are very excited to be working with Bluebell Homes on the new community in Ross On Wye. Our principle is to provide high quality kitchens while minimising our carbon footprint. All our furniture is made in the UK, which reduces pollution through long-distance transportation and our Eco range cabinets are made from 100% recycled material. The Eco Kitchens hold the prestigious FIRA Gold award in recognition of quality and excellence within manufacturing. They are also FSC certified, meaning that the wood used comes from forest operations that meet demanding environmental, social and economic requirements.”
Buyers on the Bluebell phase of the development have a choice of kitchen styles to select from, with examples of the Denim Blue & Kashmir styles from the Solent Range in the Bamford show home and a Gloss Grey Mist kitchen in the Croft show home.
The exclusive range of stylish high quality eco kitchens in homes on the Bluebell phase of St Mary’s Garden Village includes a choice of worktops and hob splashbacks; premium brand appliances including stainless steel single ovens; four zone gas hobs; integrated fridge freezers; Polished Franke steel sinks and chrome mixer taps.
