About

A new community of barn inspired homes set around two interlinking village greens, with views across rolling countryside.

Green Hills Blackburn takes its name from the unique location and the breathtaking views extending across Witton Park and the Leeds Liverpool Canal to Pleasington, Billinge, Tockholes and past Darwen Tower to the Lancashire coast.

Welcome to Green Hills Blackburn

Beautifully designed and generously appointed new homes offering attention to detail and real choice of layouts, materials and fittings in a truly inspirational environment.

 

Launching in 2017 Green Hills Blackburn will be one of the most talked about design led housing developments in the north of England. Green Hills Blackburn is located on a beautiful Lancashire hillside with views to die for.

 

In the first phase of 61 homes there are 41 different variations ensuring that Green Hills is a bespoke development in the true sense of the word. Perhaps that is expected with the internationally acclaimed designers Gerardine Hemingway MBE and Wayne Hemingway returning “home” and leading an award winning team on creating these generously appointed homes and lovingly detailed environment.

 

“Green Hills Blackburn will be one of the most talked about design led housing developments in the North of England. We are confident this will be the best development to be built in the town in living memory and will become the most sought after new homes in the area.”

Professional Team

Kingswood construct homes to an unrivalled level of specification compared to the large regional and national house builders including bigger living spaces.
Kingswood Homes (UK) Ltd was established in 2009 with a view to developing small residential projects throughout the North West of England. The company, which is privately owned, was started by Paul Jones and Stephen Heaton with the help of a private investor Alastair Salt, all of whom felt there was a gap in the market for a high quality residential developer helping to regenerate local towns by providing much needed housing.

Kingswood Homes (UK) Ltd has continued to grow and has now been constructing high quality family homes in great locations throughout the North West of England over the past eight years.

 

The success of Kingswood Homes has been recognised with a Best Business award in 2014 for the best small – medium sized business in the Building and Construction category.

 

Green Hills Blackburn is designed by one of the UK’s most celebrated design teams led by a husband and wife couple, in Gerardine and Wayne Hemingway, with true local roots. Green Hills Blackburn is their first housing project in their native North East Lancashire. The lead architects are another husband and wife team, Jane and Mark Massey of IDP. Together HemingwayDesign and IDP have worked together on housing for 17 years, winning a myriad of national and international awards.

 

The overall architectural identity responds to the interface between town and country and conjures up images of the traditional Pennine Lancashire village. Two village greens are stepped into the hillside to provide flat focal areas in which the developing community can use for play and events. Village streets step up the moor providing an attractive and engaging backdrop to sculpted public spaces.
