Opening of Derby House
Friday 23 October 2015
On Friday 16th October Lucas Homes opened the doors to its first housing development in Banstead, Surrey. Playing host to the entire Lucas Design Company, several industry executives as well as the MP for Reigate Crispin Blunt.
As well as the opening providing people with the chance to look around the interior designed show flat and the rest of the finished development at Derby House, the event was unique in that it marked the launch of Lucas Homes, a new brand from Lucas Design. The premise of Lucas Homes is to bring the same high standard of interior design and build quality that is normally associated with Lucas Design developments to buyers in the mainstream market.
The Derby House development is located on Brighton Road, Banstead and consists of nine stylish apartments. A mixture of one and two bedrooms, all the apartments are built to Lucas Homes’ extremely high specifications and within easy reach of Banstead High Street. Another nine apartments are currently under way adjacent to Derby House, this second development will be called Oak House and is due for completion in March 2016.
The total of 18 high quality apartments are the culmination of Lucas Homes’ support of the local employment market. As Lucas Homes is continuing the parent company’s policy of using local architects, designers and construction specialists so that we can continue to support local businesses and ensure the quality of our developments.
The special event continued all afternoon on the Friday and gave the people responsible for various aspects of the development the opportunity to see how it had all come together to result in homes that the new owners will be enjoying for a long time to come. The weather also held out to allow people to wander round the landscaped garden that is for use by the new residents and a photo opportunity with the entirety of the Lucas Design team with some guests of the event.
Michael Lucas, Director Land and New Homes, Lucas Design said of the day “It was fantastic to be able to present the finished product that everyone at Lucas Homes worked on at some stage – whether that be at sourcing the site, planning, construction or sales – it is a huge achievement and we hope to hold similar events for future developments and I am positive that they will be as much of a success as today was.”
