Blog : Published on 02-09-2019
Orbit’s ‘Excelsior’ homes based at our development Ash Meadows and our ‘Acorn’ homes based at Cawston Park are perfect for those young professionals wanting to be closer to the city or for those wishing to downsize.

Acorn - Cawston Park
Here are just a few reasons why you could be happier in a smaller house after all…
1. Easier to look after.
When your home is your castle then this can prove time consuming when it comes to the energy and effort in the up keep! A smaller house means less time, money and effort on cleaning and maintenance.
2. Dread those bills every month?
With a smaller house, comes smaller bills which means less money spent on insurance, heating and electricity (the list could go on) and more money to spend on yourself.
3. Handy Transport links:
Situated just off the A452, Ash Meadows is ideally positioned to offer easy access to the M40 for fast links to Birmingham, London and the North. Similarly, Cawston Park is situated in the picturesque location of Cawston, yet just to the South West of Rugby and within easy reach of all the facilities of urban living.
The Excelsior and Acorn boasts specifications such as, fitted kitchens with stainless steel appliances, contemporary white bathroom suites with thermostatic shower, PVCu double glazed windows and each come with an allocated car parking space.
5. More time.
Many of the benefits above (less cleaning, less maintaining etc) result in you having more time to yourself to do the things your really enjoy in life!
6. Our Excelsior homes start at £52,500 on 25% share, whilst our Acorn home starts at £84,000 on 40% share with Shared Ownership.
Compared to prices for similar properties in the surrounding area, you would be crazy not to consider one of these plots for your new home!
7. Be more green.
A smaller home requires fewer resources to build and less resource to maintain, meaning less of an environmental impact. And that benefits all of us, least of all the planet.
8. Wider market to sell.
When it’s time to move on and put your house on the market, a smaller, more affordable house is affordable to a larger percentage of the population than a more expensive, less affordable one.
Moving into smaller home forces you to get rid of all the baggage that you don’t need anymore. There is also less temptation to accumulate. If you don’t have any room in your house for that new pogo stick, you’ll be less tempted to buy it in the first place…
