Superior design

Homes designed for family living

Each of our homes is expertly designed with modern, family living in mind. Open plan family kitchens make the ideal space for sociable living and create a heart to the home. Many of our larger homes also feature floor to ceiling bay windows, which seamlessly links the indoors with the outdoors.

A community feel

Drakelow Park is centred on a meeting point which has been created as an attractive area for the community to come together. Along with areas of public open space for residents to enjoy, this is a development designed with family living in mind.

Essentials on your doorstep

Drakelow Park is part of a larger development project for the area. The proposal includes

  • A Local Primary School
  • Neighbourhood centres providing a range of facilities
  • Creation of riverside and woodland park

In the meantime, there are primary and secondary schools in nearby Stapenhill and Stanton, with shops, supermarkets and a great range of facilities in Burton-on-Trent.

The build so far

Groundworkers will be on site shortly so that the road, sewers and initial foundations of the first few homes will be installed by spring 2018; with the initial of the first few homes being released for sale in late spring/early summer 2018. The second phase which follows the incredibly successful former development will transform the land adjacent to a former disused railway line into a contemporary and flourishing community.

Meet the team

We understand that moving isn't something that you do every day, that’s why our experienced Sales Advisers are here to help you find your dream home. Whatever your moving situation, they will support you every step of the way.

A fantastic location

Buying a home follows a set process. Here’s a quick overview, but don’t worry if it seems complicated – our team will be happy to answer any questions you have.

View our detailed guide for more information on the process

Find a solicitor

You’ll need a solicitor that specialises in conveyance to look after all the paperwork. We can put you in touch with one if needs be.

Your solicitor will look after this for you. It’s all about formally transferring ownership from us to you, and checking there are no legal obstacles in the way.

Exchange contracts

Once the legal work is complete, your solicitor will exchange contracts with us. This is when you pay your deposit and commit to the deal taking place.
