Shepherding The Future

02.03.22

Following unprecedented demand for the first release of plots at Silverlake’s latest village, Shepperd’s View, Habitat First Group has unveiled plans for the next phase of development. Habitat First Group is the development company behind holiday home communities, Silverlake in Dorset and Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswolds, and the latest release comprises seven freehold plots, overlooking the largest lake at Silverlake. This is a fantastic opportunity for buyers to commission their own holiday home near Dorset’s spectacular Jurassic Coast, and after Habitat First Group’s most successful January ever for sales, it’s expected that these seven plots will sell quickly.

These plots are surrounded by woodlands and wetlands, allowing buyers the chance to fully immerse themselves in nature in the stunning Dorset countryside. The estate encompasses acres of heathland and waterways, so there’s plenty for homeowners to explore in the area surrounding their new home. The estate is also teeming with wildlife year-round, as Habitat First Group puts nature first when creating new villages, working with their Chief Ecologist, Dr. Phoebe Carter, to ensure that nature and wildlife are encouraged to flourish and thrive.

Homeowners in the Shepperd’s View development will have access to a communal jetty, so residents will waste no time in getting out onto the water in the estate’s canoes, kayaks and paddle boards. Homeowners can also explore the estate and surrounding heathland using the bikes available for hire, or for those that prefer a gentle stroll, there are plenty of pathways to explore by foot.

Established 25 years ago, Habitat First Group provides the opportunity to purchase the freehold plot of land and build an environmentally sustainable house by using one of their existing award-winning designs with a recommended build partner. This next phase has plots available with the architectural designs the Dorset Barn, Water Garden and the Sun House available. In another step towards harmonising ecology, architecture and community, each property in this latest release will be fitted with an Air Source Heat Pump, with optional extras such as EV chargers, solar panels, and batteries also available on request. Homeowners will have the chance to create bespoke interiors in their new home to truly make the space their own.

All plots are also exempt from the 3% stamp duty surcharge on second homes. Plots come with a 12-month holiday home occupancy, and under the Habitat First Group umbrella, the brand operates a holiday lettings company, Habitat Escapes. This means that, should they wish, holiday homeowners can register their property for holiday rentals when they’re not using it. Habitat Escapes manages the bookings and organises the cleaning and maintenance, giving buyers the best of both worlds; a holiday home for the family and a solid investment.

Prices for plots at the next phase of Shepperd’s View start at £630,000 for a four-bedroom design, and from £1,265,000 for a larger five-bedroom design. These prices are made up of a freehold plot price with the benefit of planning permission and a build contract from a recommended builder.
