Henley-on-Thames brownfield site acquired for stunning new scheme


Oakford Homes has purchased a brownfield site in Deanfield Avenue, Henley-on-Thames, for a proposed development of 23 new apartments. The site has been allocated for residential development in the recently adopted Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan.

Acquired from a family run removals firm ‘Wilkins of Henley’, who are relocating locally, the site is opposite the Henley College and within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in the thriving town centre, the railway station and the iconic River Thames.

“Wilkins is a long established and respected family firm and so it was important for them to be able to work with a company who could be trusted with the relevant development experience to deliver on their promises .” said Sebastian Kemp, Land Director of Oakford Homes.

“It’s the perfect location for us in terms of our prospective purchasers, our product and our brand. Having previously developed Charlotte Mews in Henley, as well as our award winning schemes in nearby Twyford, we’re delighted to be returning to the town once again and will be creating a bespoke design to reflect the location.”

Oakford Homes have appointed David Parker Architects, a local and highly regarded practice for this type of landmark development, who has designed this stunning scheme of apartments with undercroft/semi basement parking and two feature green walls.  A planning application has been recently lodged with South Oxfordshire District Council with a decision at the end of July.
