The collection of four houses includes two and three-bedroom semi-detached properties, each benefitting from an EPC A rating. Finished to a high-quality standard, the homes are surrounded by scenic countryside views and are close to local amenities such as the well-regarded Urchfont Primary School.

Hazel Green also includes nine homes available on the open market, which have attracted strong interest since enquiries first opened.

“Focused on the county of Wiltshire, White Horse Housing is well experienced in helping to meet affordable housing needs in the county and, as it prioritises both quality and energy efficiency, it was a natural fit for us to work together at Hazel Green,” said Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director of Acorn’s Bristol office.

“We’ve already secured a number of reservations among the homes available for private sale and we’re pleased to be able to help with demand for affordable housing in the area as well.”

Belinda Eastland, Operations Director at White Horse Housing added: “As well as our high standards of tenant support, we pride ourselves on providing high quality housing in rural areas where people often struggle to afford a property. The affordable homes created by Acorn at Hazel Green will allow households the opportunity to remain in the village where they have local connections. In addition, with the current high cost of living in mind, these homes will help to keep household bills down because they are of a good quality and energy-efficient.”

Named ‘Winner of Winners’ in the 2021 CPRE Wiltshire Best Kept Village Competition, Urchfont is set on the edge of the Pewsey Vale and is well known for its thriving local community.

The popular market town of Devizes is just five miles away, while direct train services to London and Exeter are available from Pewsey station, nine miles from the village.
