Live in a fantastic new home which you have customised to suit your needs

At Pound Lane you can choose exactly what goes into your home including the layout, specification, and style, and save on stamp duty and VAT in the process. Pound Lane is an exclusive secluded development of just 12 detached customisable homes tucked away in the woodlands of Essex just 35 minutes from London. Each house has a huge garden and access to large communal spaces and even a private woodland!

What makes Pound Lane special?

✓ Freedom and Choice
Our custom build model means that you don't have to settle for how a developer has decided your home should be. Gone are the days of searching endlessly for a home that you want and never finding it. Take charge and create it exactly how you want it.
✓ Our plots are huge!
To give you some context, in past developments, 3 houses (including a road!) have been built on a plot of 660 sqm. In contrast, at Pound Lane, the smallest plot is just under 500 sq m, with the largest one being a massive 1100 sq m.
✓ Masses of green space
Having access to green space is a big priority for many homeowners, with more of us spending more time at home, and especially for its impact on mental health and wellbeing. At Pound Lane, our gardens are between 3 to 4 times as large as you would normally find with a standard new-build house and.not only will your plot include a large garden, we have also included a communal garden for everyone to enjoy, as well as private woodland that lines the homes.
✓ Great design
All three available house types have been expertly designed by multi-award winning architects, Pitman Tozer Architects, Mae Architects, and AOC Architecture, to take advantage of not only the surroundings but to maximise space and light.
✓ Environmental sustainability
Our homes are super insulated, very airtight and highly sustainable as standard. There are options for you to add in Solar PV's, solar water heating and air source heat pumps.


MyHouse by Mae architects is carefully designed to not only meet the current needs of new homeowners, but also to adapt to their changing requirements over time. MyHouse has a simple but distinctive profile, with a pitched roof that can incorporate an additional bedroom or living space.

S6 House

S6 House, designed by Pitman Tozer Architects, offers a spacious family home with up to five bedrooms and generous living spaces orientated to maximise views over the large rear garden. Some of the options include a rear extension to increase the living area, wood-burning stove and ground floor bedroom or study.

LittleBIG House

Designed by AOC architects, LittleBig House is a two-storey home with the option to add a loft space providing an extra bedroom, a home office or a living room with its own roof terrace. The choice of either a flat or pitched roof line gives the house a distinctive character, and internal flexibility allows for generous double height spaces within the home.
