Evera Homes' ‘De Havilland Gardens’ to Offer 60 Homes in Huntingdonshire

De Havilland Gardens is the name for the new 60-home development in Huntingdonshire which is now under construction.

The scheme of  2,3, 4 and 5 bed properties will offer a mix of outright sale, shared ownership and affordable rent. 24 of the homes will provide affordable housing.

The name of the development recognises the heritage of the site as a former RAF base and is taken from the De Havilland Aircraft Company. Similarly, all the names for the homes will have aviation links with aircraft nicknames used: the Dove, the Devon, the Canberra, the Heron, the Derby, the Doncaster.

The homes in Upwood are being developed by Evera Homes, a ground-breaking joint venture created and capitalised by Flagship Group, Hyde Group, Longhurst Group and Cross Keys Homes.



Evera Homes was launched in late 2018 to tackle the acute housing shortage by delivering homes at a greater pace. The plan is to deliver the start on site of an additional 2,000 new homes by 2023.

Claire Higgins, Chair of Evera Homes said: “By combining our skills, knowledge and expertise, we are working together to build high quality homes to meet the significant housing need in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough combined authority area.

“De Havilland Gardens is our very first development and it is fantastic to see the progress that is being made on these properties which we expect to be highly sought after.”

The scheme is expected to be completed in late summer and the homes are now being marketed. Anyone interested can find out more  sales@everahomes.co.uk
