Broughton Place is a security estate in The Avenues in Constantia.
Here, Urban Space created eight gracious homes, varying from 520m² to 750m² set on stands ranging from 1374m² to 1506m².
Each home has been designed to fulfil the desire for a finely crafted house as well as provide for today's all-important need for security.
Shenington House interior. Open plan kitchen-living-dining area. Large patio and braai area visible through large open sliding doors. Windows are large to let in as much natural light as possible. The simple and modern design allows for an air of elegance and great flow of energy through the home.
Edgehill House. House area 643 and plot area 1374 quare metres. The battle of Edgehill in 1642 was the first major battle of the English Civil War. During this period Broughton Castle, seven miles away, was a Parliamentarian stronghold with Sir William Fiennes at the helm leading the activism against King Charles the First. After the battle of Edgehill, Broughton Castle was besieged and eventually overrun by the Royalists.
Culworth House. House area 699 and plot area 1506 square metres. This small village in south Northamptonshire dates back to the eleventh century, with the remains of a castle from that period still evident. During the eighteenth century, Culworth was home to a gang of highwaymen, known as the Culworth Gang. They terrorised the surrounding area for twenty years before most of them were brought to justice.
Banbury House. House area 520 and plot area 1393 square metres. Located on the west bank of the River Cherwell, this historic Oxfordshire market town is best known for Banbury Cross, from which the famous nursery rhyme draws inspiration. It is thought that the fine lady the rhyme mentions refers to a Fiennes lady, namely Celia Fiennes, just three miles away at Broughton Castle.
Adderbury House. House area 706 and plot area 1480 square metres. The village and parish of Adderbury lies about three miles south of Banbury and is noted for the many honey-coloured limestone cottages and houses in the older par ts of the village, which is split in two by Sor Brook. The quaker traditon in Adderbury has produced several notable clock makers, Richard Gilkes being one of the most prominent.
