What do we mean by “Life, built in”?

More than a slogan, it’s a new philosophy on home

At Legal & General Modular Homes, we’re determined to be a new type of housing developer.  We’re committed to creating desirable neighbourhoods across the UK, offering more people the opportunity to live in a sustainable, modern home.

So when we say we offer Life, built in, it’s more than just a slogan. Instead, it’s a way of thinking that guides every decision we make.

We start by focusing on the life to be lived in our homes, considering every element from the ground up – and building it into our choice of locations, the design and build of our homes – even the way we market and sell them.

We look for promising sites in established towns and cities, close to jobs, schools and amenities, developing them into new neighbourhoods that people are proud to be a part of.

We build a mix of home-types to make balanced communities – creating first homes, family homes and forever homes so that everyone can play a full part in their new neighbourhoods.

We think about today’s lifestyles and tomorrow’s aspirations, where light and space play a key part in boosting our well-being. We take this into consideration with every home we build.

Our energy-efficient homes have lower carbon emissions than traditional builds, both when they’re built and as they’re lived in.

And we embrace new methods of construction, using modular techniques in purpose-built factory settings to ensure efficiency, quality and precision.

So all of our new-builds are ready-made for living, with everything you need to call home.

A ready-made community right on the doorstep

You can see the results of our thinking in our first new neighbourhood, currently under development.

Portholme in Selby, North Yorkshire is the perfect place to put down roots. From first home, family home or forever home, the brand-new neighbourhood situated in the heart of historic Selby, is designed to make people feel like they’re part of their community from the outset.

With the neighbourhood close to major transport links for all nearby cities, it boasts the best of close-knit community values and modern accessibility to the surrounding area. What’s more, the 2020 Quality of Life survey by banking giant Halifax recently named Selby as the most attractive place to live in Yorkshire, and sixth overall in the UK* (Halifax Bank Quality of Life Survey, 2020).

Portholme’s a great place to begin a new life, start a family or enjoy your years of settling down. Situated in the North Yorkshire countryside, Selby offers good schools and colleges, is well connected and is rated as one of Britain’s safest places to live. From enjoying the nearby countryside to visiting the stunning Abbey, Portholme is a stone’s throw away from Leeds, York, Harrogate, Knaresborough – as well as the famous Dales and Moors.

Quality and practicality as standard

A neighbourhood truly exists when there’s place for everyone to embrace. Featuring a range of two- and three-bedroom homes and one- and two-bedroom apartments, Portholme offers a variety of practical options. Regardless of layout, each space carefully considers the human at its heart.

Featuring light and bright areas maximising the available space to practical finishes on units and fixtures, every property feels future-ready from the moment you turn the key. From balconies and communal areas in apartments to high ceilings and open plan living areas in homes, every home at Portholme makes the most of the natural daylight for a light and airy feel.

Greener thinking, naturally

Sustainability is at the centre of living in Portholme.

With full-height windows on east- and west-facing walls for many of the homes, each property allows you to enjoy more natural light for more hours of the day, reducing energy bills and promoting a greater sense of well-being. We’re considerate constructors, too – with materials, processes and techniques all highly vetted to make sure every home is equally durable as it is sustainable.

We’re already building homes to the Energy Performance Certificate Standard A rating – this is currently met by only 1% of new homes. Combining sustainable product innovations with the highest building standards, lean manufacturing and precision engineering, our homes are generating far less waste and meet net-zero capability standards for the future.
