Property Finance team funds gated development in Berkshire

Experienced housebuilder Bancroft Developments secured a loan from Hampshire Trust Bank’s Property Finance team to fund a gated development in Binfield, Berkshire.

The Broadhaven housing development comprises of three new five bedroom detached homes, set in the grounds of period property Oaklands. Oaklands, built in 1852, is also being renovated as part of the project, which is nearing completion.

The loan from Hampshire Trust Bank assisted with the acquisition of the land and the construction of the three new homes.

John Pollington, Director of Property Finance at Hampshire Trust Bank, said: “Established almost 30 years ago, Bancroft Developments are extremely experienced. This family-focused, hi-spec development makes the most of the existing site and is exactly the type of value-add project that the Property Finance team is keen to support.”

Patrick Bancroft said:

We try to go the extra yard and to build homes that we would want to live in ourselves. We like to work with people that are as passionate about property as we are and this certainly applies to Hampshire Trust Bank.
