Top Of The Pups - Pet-Friendly Developments

Posted 26 October 2021 by Helen Christie

Your pet is part of your family, and so when it comes to looking for a new home, you want to be sure your pet is as happy as you are...

We’ve put together a selection of developments from WhatHouse? Award-winning housebuilder Barratt Homes that are welcoming to pets, and are also focused on preserving and increasing the development’s ecological profile, with some even creating habitats for local wildlife including bird boxes and hedgehog passages. 


Bruneval Gardens in Aldershot

A collection of one- and two-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom houses, Bruneval Gardens is part of the wider new Wellesley neighbourhood, which will see a large proportion of Aldershot’s iconic former military barracks transformed into a collection of modern homes and public spaces, including two new schools. 

The development has been commended in the ‘Built for Life’ industry awards, a quality mark that recognises well-designed new homes, neighbourhoods and communities. The new neighbourhood features Wellesley Woodlands, which is made up of 110 hectares of interlinked woodlands, wildlife habitats, canal-side walks and lakes, ideal for long dog walks. For commuters, Aldershot Rail Station is just 1.2 miles away and offers direct connections to London Waterloo in as little as 46 minutes. Prices at the development start from £214,995.

Eldebury Place in Chertsey

Having launched off plan in late 2020, Eldebury Place is set just a stone’s throw from the high street, where residents will be able to access a variety of shops, banks and cafes, alongside a good choice of restaurants and bars. Thorpe Park is also just a short drive away, alongside the famous Thames Path walkway, which is a great walk for dogs. Each apartment offers private outdoor space, either a balcony or a patio, which is ideal for pets. For commuters, Chertsey Rail Station is just a short walk away and offers direct connections to London Waterloo in as little as 48 minutes.

One- and two-bedroom apartments are available, and prices start from £269,995.


Lavender Grange in Henlow

Lavender Grange by Barratt Homes is a collection of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes surrounded by idyllic countryside located in Henlow, Bedfordshire. The homes offer a large open-plan kitchen and dining room with double doors leading out onto the garden which is ideal for pets needing outdoor space. 

For those with pets that need plenty of outdoor exercise, over nine acres within the development is dedicated to green open space whilst the Barton Hills Nature Reserve and Hitchin Lavender Farm are just a short drive away.  There is plenty to do with nearby Letchworth Garden City and Hitchin town centre offering various attractions including a range of high street shops, a cinema and a theatre. With a children’s play area coming soon to the site and a range of Ofsted rated Good and Outstanding schools nearby, Lavender Grange is perfect for families with children and animals alike.


Barratt Homes at Linmere in Hougton Regis

Set on the outskirts of Houghton Regis, the recently launched Linmere development will offer an exciting new community set amongst tree lined neighbourhoods. The initial phase consists of three and four-bedroom homes, with selected plots overlooking Linmere Park. Once complete, Linmere will be surrounded by 90 acres of open space and landscaped parks, allotments, alongside a selection of shops including a Lidl supermarket, a children’s adventure playground, a café, new schools and leisure facilities.

The development is conveniently situated within walking distance to everyday amenities and local villages, whilst Dunstable Downs, which is part of Chiltern Hills, is just a ten minute drive away where residents can walk or cycle with views of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Each apartment comes with outdoor space, either a terrace or balcony, which is great for any four-legged friends living in the home. 

Prices start from £122,250 for a 50% share, with a full market value: £244,500.


Ridgeway Views in Mill Hill

Surrounded by idyllic fields and country walks in popular Mill Hill village, Ridgeway Views is a 47-acre development on the site of the old National Institute for Medical Research, perfect for those with pets who need plenty of exercise. The development offers the best of both for those wanting to experience the benefits of living in the countryside, with easy commuter access to central London. 

Barratt London has focused on preserving and increasing the development’s ecological profile, creating habitats for local wildlife including bird boxes and a hedgehog passage through the residential area. Homebuyers can relax on the communal terrace overlooking beautiful countryside or take advantage of the various other communal outdoor spaces, including a play area, a fitness trail and gently landscaped gardens. Also available to residents are a gym and concierge service, as well as a number of ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Good’ rated schools close to the development. The new homes will include two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as an exclusive collection of four- and five-bedroom detached houses. All homes come with parking.
