UK-wide Prince’s House roll-out announced

  • Comment

The Prince’s Foundation has signed an agreement with a house builder to construct its Prince’s House for sale on the open market

Developer Dorchester Group will build the first batch of the foundation’s flagship homes – designed to be ‘stylish, comfortable and affordable’ – at Upper Heyford in Oxfordshire.

The former RAF airbase has outline planning for 1,000 homes as part of a Scott Brownrigg-designed masterplan. The first batch of Prince’s House homes – designed by Prince’s Foundation architects –is expected to complete in 2013.

Under the deal, Dorchester will build to The Prince’s House ‘system design principles and standards’, drawing on designs such as the Natural House and Prince’s Arts & Crafts House (pictured) – which was unveiled at the Ideal Home Show last week.

Prince’s Foundation chief executive, Hank Dittmar said: ‘When we exhibited The Prince’s House at last year’s Ideal Home Show, the public response was incredibly positive. Many people asked where they could buy one and so we began to look for partners to meet this demand.

‘This new licensing approach with the Dorchester Group means that we offer these houses to the public, and offer families the opportunity to live in a Prince’s House, that is not only green, but comfortable and beautiful.  We are confident that further licenses will be signed, briging the Prince’s House to neighbourhoods throughout the UK.’
