Welcome to The Acre

Set on generous, leafy plots within minutes of Oxford city centre, The Acre at Cumnor Hill is the first custom build development by HAB Housing, the company set up by Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud.

Key facts about the development, which was completed in 2017, include:

  • 5 executive homes, each with four, five or six bedrooms
  • Greencore manufactured and erected the superstructures using our proprietary Biond system of offsite timber construction, with the rest of the build being managed by the main contractor
  • Highly efficient underfloor heating and mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) units in each home provide very high levels of living comfort and keep energy usage to a minimum
