Burrington Estates are at the forefront of high quality, new residential and commercial development in the West Country. They have established a reputation for building high-quality, design-led new homes. Beautiful properties that people aspire to live in. Winslade Park is clearly no exception and the wonderful parkland setting offers a fantastic opportunity to deliver the Burrington Estates aspirations for enduring communities and a superb environment to live, work and play.

Burrington Estates achieved unanimous support at East Devon District Council planning committee in December 2020 for the refurbishment of 21,131sqm of existing commercial floorspace, 2364sqm of leisure space, an extension to Brook House providing ancillary commercial floorspace together with site wide landscaping and engineering works together with the erection of up to 94 new homes (Planning ref – 20/1001/MOUT)

Works on the commercial elements, including the iconic Grade II* Manor have been progressing at pace and are due to welcome their first new tenants in the coming weeks. Shortly, attention will focus on the extensive refurbishment of the leisure facility, providing an exceptional on site gym, swimming pool, café and health facilities. The wider parkland and outdoor recreational facilities are also a focus of our attention to deliver a wonderful environment for new residents or workers together with the first class sports pitches and tennis courts for local clubs and schools to make best use of.

In the meantime, our in house design team and the excellent Clifton Emery architects have been busy designing a reserved matters scheme for the delivery of the new homes within the parkland setting.

The Site

New homes are set to be delivered in the areas known as Zone A and Zone D (SEE SITE PLAN).

Zone A

Zone A (Parkland Housing) is located towards the entrance to Winslade Park off Winslade Park Avenue and close to the junction with the Exmouth Road and Clyst Valley AFC. The former agricultural land provides an excellent opportunity to deliver a gateway development to Winslade Park. The parcel of land also benefits from excellent connectivity to the existing village at Clyst St Mary providing easy access for new residents to the local amenities and recreational facilities on offer. Aside from this, the land relates well to surrounding built form, with existing residential development at the northern and eastern boundaries. We see Zone A as a fabulous opportunity to delivery luxury new homes for Clyst St Mary.

Zone D

Zone D (Woodland Apartments) is positioned at the heart of the site, close to Winslade Manor and within an existing area of car parking. The large extent of hardstanding and dense tree lined boundary offers a superb opportunity to provide a selection of unique new homes in this wonderful setting and with key views towards the wider parkland and the Georgian Manor.

Proposed Scheme

Zone A

In Zone A (Parkland Housing) it is proposed to deliver a selection of 39 detached and semi-detached new homes with spacious gardens and off-street parking and/or garages. The new homes will have direct pedestrian access to the wider parkland via a tree lined corridor. New homes along the existing developed boundaries are designed as 1½ storey properties. The homes will be a mix of 3/4/5 beds providing additional family housing to Clyst St Mary in an accessible position with green and spacious plots.

Zone D

In Zone D (Woodland Apartments) it is proposed to develop a selection of unique apartments across three mansion blocks, comprising a total of 40 apartments of either 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. The blocks are designed in a traditional form to sit sympathetically alongside the original Manor House and shielded by the dense tree line boundary to the north. The mass of the blocks is broken into three distinct ‘mansions’ to respect the distinct setting of the bold Manor at the heart of Winslade Park. Our designers have worked extremely carefully here to present a scheme that does not compete or cause significant harm to the Grade II* Manor. The new apartments in Zone D (Woodland Apartments) will therefore seek to enhance the organic growth and development of the park and new residents in this location will benefit from the unique living environment.
