EVENTING star Harry Meade cut the ribbon on the show home of a new housing development near Cirencester.
The acclaimed rider paid a visit to Orchard Field – Stonewood Partnerships’ neighbourhood of 88 homes in Siddington.
Meade, a Stonewood ambassador who has competed at 12 Badminton International Horse Trials, opened the home – a three-bedroomed Pippin – in front of invited guests, staff and contractors.
He said: “It’s brilliant to be here and it’s wonderful to see the future of how more and more people are going to live.
“Hopefully this is the start of a big journey for Stonewood and congratulations to everyone involved.”
Stonewood Partnerships managing director Sam Smart said the homes have been designed to be as low energy as possible.
“It’s quite a significant year for us with it being our 50th birthday and it’s really nice to take a moment and stop to give thanks to everybody involved in getting to this stage of the project,” he said.
“Stonewood’s growth is rooted in core values which were established back in 1972 – quality, craftmanship and innovation. We strive to create beautiful buildings that stand the test of time and we are seeing that here at Orchard Field.
“Designing these new buildings to the highest possible environmental standards is a challenge that we have embraced and we look forward to building many more in the region. Setting new standards in housebuilding is what we strive for and we want to keep pushing the boundaries of sustainability and build quality.”
Families have already moved into two of the houses, all of which will have solar panels embedded into the roof.
Mr Smart also paid tribute to joint venture partner Nicholas Arbuthnott, the retired architect who had the original vision for the project.
“Nicholas’ ambition for the legacy of the project was quite clear from the start and his wisdom and knowledge has been instrumental in producing what we see today,” he said.
