Marketing underway as selling agent appointed for Oakley Green, Lavant

Oakford Homes has appointed new homes specialists, Sims Williams, as the selling agency for their latest collection of homes at Oakley Green in the village of Lavant, near Chichester, West Sussex.

Due to be unveiled in Spring 2024, Oakley Green will comprise 38 two, three and four bedroom houses in a wide variety of styles, together with 18 one and two bedroom apartments set across three separate buildings. Nine of these apartments will be provided as shared ownership. Each home will be designed and finished to the high quality for which Oakford Homes has established a strong reputation locally for having previously built a number of successful developments in and around Chichester. 

Sebastian Kemp, director of Oakford Homes, said, “Oakley Green represents a welcome return to Lavant for us. Our previous developments in this area were always very well received and have retained a sense of quality within their matured landscapes. It’s good to be back in this scenic and special part of West Sussex, the South Downs National Park, and bringing the prospect of a unique opportunity with Oakley Green, which has been designed specifically for this fabulous setting.

“Richard Moores and his team at Sims Williams showed enthusiasm and a real appreciation for our vision for Oakley Green. They also demonstrated a genuine understanding of the specialist skills for marketing new homes and the advantages of this location in particular and we look forward to a successful venture together.”

Sims Williams, which has four sales offices in West Sussex plus a land & new homes division, has recently appointed Susan Wadsworth to the team. Susan has previously worked in senior roles with major housebuilders and joined Sims Williams from her previous role of 20 years heading the new homes division of a regional estate agency.  

Richard Moores, partner at Sims Williams, said, “We’re delighted to be working with the team at Oakford Homes. He and Susan have worked together previously to market new homes in this area, so the relationship and communications are already in place. We’ve dealt with so many different developers over the years and Oakford Homes are clearly a cut above. For them, it’s all about doing what’s right and making the right choices, right down to the smallest detail, which makes such a difference for buyers. They build a tremendous product and that makes our job of selling them so much more enjoyable.

“Oakley Green is unique both in its location and the types of properties that are going to be created but the identity of the scheme will be so individual with views up to the South Downs and local landmark of The Trundle, you’re not going to find that anywhere else. 

“As selling agents, this is a great opportunity to showcase what we can do for such a respected brand with the high-quality finish that Oakford Homes is offering. When we first sat around the table we realised that we're dealing with like-minded people, which makes life so much easier so we’re looking forward to the next steps for a successful project.”

Construction is now underway at Oakley Green where the first homes are expected to be ready in Summer 2024. To receive updates and information on the individual properties, contact Richard Moores and Susan Wadsworth at Sims Williams on 01243 558735.
