​lockley acquires prestigious site on henley-in-arden high street


Lockley Homes has acquired a prime one acre site on Henley-in-Arden High Street. The purchase was made through local commercial property firm Tim Cox Associates.

There is currently outline planning to demolish the existing old factory and build seven new homes. Award winning Ritchie & Ritchie architects are currently drawing up plans for an application that will be submitted to Stratford-upon-Avon district council in the coming weeks. The design will reflect our distinctive and unique, luxury style. Potential buyers are invited to contact us to register early expressions of interest.

Formerly the site of F. Goldsmiths & Co who for many years manufactured quality, fine jewellery from its factory situated at 221 Henley High Street. With its owners now retired, the building had fallen into disrepair. The land sits between two residential properties and will become a desirable address for potential buyers looking for a bespoke, luxury property in this much sought-after village.

The market town of Henley-in-Arden is well regarded for its rich medieval heritage and its mile long High Street, packed with cafes, pubs and restaurants. It has retained its village ambiance and community feel, a rare commodity in modern society, and whilst being close to open countryside and quaint, chocolate box villages, Henley also benefits from its proximity to the historical town of Stratford-upon-Avon which is a short drive away and is within easy reach of both the M42 and M40 motorway network, as well as being close to Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre.

Lockley Homes land director, Ian O'Gorman said “We are delighted to confirm that we have now simultaneously exchanged & completed on this superb site and we have already started work creating a well-crafted development that will sit well within its surroundings. We hope to get the planning application in with Stratford District Council in April/May 2021."

Over the past few years, Lockley have strived to establish ourselves as a premium brand for luxury homes in Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Herefordshire. Our current live construction sites include a £2 million, 3,500 sq/ft bungalow in Tanworth-in-Arden and The Paintworks, Worcester, which is an exciting, urban scheme consisting of eight contemporary town houses.
