Orchid in bloom

Situated in the market town of Oakham, Orchid is a housing development comprising a mix of traditionally inspired family homes and apartments.

Built by Linden Homes, the development includes two, three and four-bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments.

Each of the homes at Orchid come backed with a 10 Year NHBC Warranty, so it is not at all surprising to see that Orchid amongst the names for an NHBC Award in 2013. Site manager Paul Mott has been nominated for the much sought after NHBC Pride in the Job Award for a second year, which is not only a fantastic achievement, but demonstrates his commitment to the development.

Commenting on the award, Paul said:

“I am delighted to have reached this stage in the competition for a second year running, and as a site manager I feel it is important to go that extra mile to ensure the quality and overall appearance of a development, and Orchid is a site I am extremely proud of.”

Designed to suit first time buyers, as well as young professionals and families, the properties at Orchid are decked out in modern fixtures and fittings and are already proving very popular with new buyers. Kitchens include a stainless steel fitted electric single oven, a free-standing washer-dryer, track spotlights and a stainless steel gas hob.

Bathrooms include white sanitary ware with chrome finish taps, pedestal wash basin and electric extractor fans. Meanwhile, properties with en-suite facilities include a glazed shower cubicle with resin stone tray and thermostatically controlled shower.

With modern technology always at the forefront of its properties, Orchid boasts a Sky-ready multi-media hub, which is capable of distributing SKY TV services as well as DVD/CD and FM services from the lounge to almost every room in the house. In addition, terrestrial TV and FM aerial points are also present, with generous cabling for BT and electric outlets.

Additional features of the properties include double glazed window, fitted wardrobes and white UPVC French doors. Safety and security is of the upmost importance, so each home is fitted with mains smoke detectors with a battery backup, whilst windows are lockable.

All properties within Orchid include roof insulation and thermal wall insulation, as well as gas central heating with an energy efficient boiler. The development itself benefits from links to rail networks and roads, including the nearby A1, A46 and A47, as well as popular destinations such as the Rutland Railway Museum.

Linden Homes is a highly respected property developer, building new homes throughout the UK. The company is part of the Galliford Try Group and builds the majority of its properties on brownfield sites.

2013 has been a great year for Linden Homes, as it has seen more of its developments nominated for awards than ever before. With recognition for Yes in Cambridgeshire, Lincoln’s Oasis and Romans View in Northamptonshire, joining Orchid, Linden Homes continues to prove it is a leading name in the housing market.
