The future’s looking bright for Forays
We specialise in building small but perfectly formed developments in desirable locations. Over the course of 2019 we brought many more luxurious homes to the market and attracted plenty of industry praise along the way. And if 2020 continues as it has started it could be our best year yet! Here’s a quick round-up of our achievements over the last 12 months – and a taste of things to come.
Front cover for Fincham View
Forays started 2019 in the news as our Fincham View development (Rye Common, Odiham) featured on the front cover of the January edition of The Farnham Herald’s Homes & Lifestyle supplement. Fincham View is an exclusive development of just four luxurious 3 and 4 bedroom homes in the peaceful Hampshire countryside. As locations go it is second to none, being near to renowned restaurants, pubs, leisure facilities, schools and shops while offering easy access to London.
Design spotlight for Dunes
Dunes is one-of two contemporary 4 bedroom homes in Mudeford designed by David James Architects for Forays Homes. In September 2019 this stunning new build was showcased on the cover of Design Buy Build, an industry magazine aimed at self builders, property developers, architects and interior designers. The article focused on the property’s individual styling, contemporary feel and luxury finish as well as its highly desirable location, a stone’s throw from the golden sands of Mudeford Beach.
Height of luxury in Oakley
We build homes that people would love to own in the places they would love to live. Our Folletts Close development in Oakley is a prime example. Oakley is a picturesque village in the borough of Basingstoke and Dean. We added five new luxurious homes to the landscape (including a ‘barn’ style detached 5 bedroom house) creating a rare opportunity to buy a new build in this highly desirable location.
Style partners with Danetti
Danetti is a leading supplier of stunning contemporary furniture. We were therefore delighted when the company asked if they could use one of our new Folletts Close homes as the setting for a photoshoot of their Autumn/Winter 2019 range. This is not the first time that Forays has provided the style backdrop for Danetti and, if the success of this second venture is anything to go by, it won’t be the last!
SOLD! Wilson Court, Deepcut
Our Wilson Court development is now fully sold. Wilson Court is located off Deepcut Bridge Road in Deepcut, Camberley and consists of just six striking 3 bedroom homes, each with landscaped gardens and private parking.
SOLD! Clarence Road, Fleet
We have also sold all five of the luxury apartments we built as part of a small development in Fleet town centre. The Clarence Road apartments were all built to our usual high specification and benefitted from fully fitted kitchens, spacious living areas and allocated off-street parking.
SOLD! Albert Street, Fleet
The Albert Street development in Fleet is a terrace of just three 2 and 3 bedroom homes with spacious living/dining areas and allocated parking. Conveniently located near the town of Fleet, this development has been extremely popular and all three of the properties have now been sold.
Restoring history in Godalming
The Grade I listed almshouses in Wyatt’s Close, Godalming were built in the 1620s and originally comprised 10 two-storey houses with a central chapel providing accommodation for 10 almsmen. Forays Homes has breathed new life into this stunning site so that it can be enjoyed for years to come. We converted the almshouses into six 1 bedroom apartments and the chapel into a single 2 bedroom house. We also erected six new 1 bedroom bungalows within the grounds. We have had an exceptional start this year with the development nearing completion and show homes available to view – and three plots already reserved.
Looking ahead – 2020 vision
Work is already underway on several projects that we will be bringing to market in 2020.
Our Redehall Road development (in Horley, Surrey) is a collection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes while our Bagmore Lane project (in Herriard, Hampshire) comprises three new detached homes. Both projects are anticipated to launch in autumn 2020.
In addition, we have also recently acquired two more sites and look forward to sharing our exciting plans for their development in the near future.
