Our Specification

Our specification:

Our contemporary homes are bright, clean and spacious, complete with high quality fixtures and fittings, integrated kitchen appliances and alarm/safety systems — all with attractive and high quality flooring throughout.

Designed for life:

All DifRent homes have been designed with the overall aesthetics of the site in mind. We build homes which have real points of differentiation — some with render and some with brick — to create a characterful mix.

From the ground up:

With laminate flooring on the ground floors and hard-wearing quality carpet upstairs, every DifRent home is designed and kitted out to deal with the realities of today’s living. Which is why all properties also have a fitted doormat – keeping the dirt out of your home from the beginning.

If you’d like to hang curtains, white wooden batons are located above all windows. The kitchens include copper slate look worktops (apartments) and dark ash worktops in our houses.

Each home will include a white washbasin, bath and shower (note: not all homes have separate bath and shower).

Stay connected:

With BT points or Virgin connection points installed in our houses plus communal standard television aerials and Sky dishes in place in the apartments, all DifRent residents can rest easy when it comes to great connectivity.

Decoration & furnishings

All walls and ceilings are painted in Brilliant White matt emulsion and all interior woodwork is painted in Brilliant White gloss. Banister handrails are natural Ash and all internal doors are white with polished chrome handles or ash wood. Simple, contemporary, clean.

Window coverings are a combination of blinds on the upper floors of houses, whilst in the apartments, full length curtains are provided in the living room with blinds in bedrooms. All DifRent homes include built-in fridge/freezers, integrated dishwashers, electric ovens with ceramic hobs and washer/dryers.

Water & heat:

We want our residents to be cosy so all our properties have central-heating with variable temperature dials on all the radiators. We also have electric radiators in the apartment bathrooms and heated towel rails in all houses and apartment bathrooms.

Windows & doors:

All our front doors, patio doors and UPVC windows are Secured by Design with multipoint and espagnolette locking systems. We use obscured glass in all our bathroom and cloakroom windows, to ensure the right level of privacy. And to welcome all visitors, the front doors have polished chrome handles, numerals and doorbells.

Peace of mind:

The safety of our communities is paramount, so all DifRent homes are fitted with Intruder alarms which have discretely positioned keypads and control panels. There are also mains-powered smoke, heat and CO detectors. Outside, there are wall lights to the front and rear of the property.


We truly value well-designed streets as well as green space, so we work hard to ensure that DifRent gardens and other outside areas are picturesque.

All rear gardens are enclosed, secure and fully turfed. All communal green spaces are fully maintained. There’s off-road parking with landscaped front gardens and all apartments include designated parking spaces. For our bike-loving residents, all apartment blocks also include a bike store.
