In addition to a Sainsbury’s local and Tesco local there are a number of shops, chemists, doctors and Post Office within a few miles of the development.

The build so far

Several homes here are now built and almost ready for their new owners to move in. The landscaping to the front of the site is taking shape, blending in beautifully with the scenic surroundings.

Our sales centre is now complete and open five days a week. The construction team are well underway with building the two brand new show homes, which we will be launching at the end of February 2017.

They’ll help find the best buy-to-let investment mortgages, as well as offering guidance on tax and portfolio planning. Most can also meet you at a time and place that’s convenient for you.

Letting Agents

Our homes appeal to potential tenants, not just because they look great, but also because we design them to be energy efficient and low maintenance to live in. Our homes have won some of the industry’s most coveted awards for design and quality, and we’re the only major national housebuilder to be awarded the 5 Star Housebuilder Award by the Homebuilders Federation every year since 2009.

The buying process

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.

Arrange your mortgage

There are plenty of options to consider when it comes to a mortgage. Once you’ve done your research (or spoken to a mortgage adviser – again, we can put you in touch if you like), you should seek an agreement in principle.

Get a valuation and survey

Your mortgage lender will want confirmation the home is worth what you’re paying for it. They’ll organise the valuation for you – this will involve a fee.

Complete legal work

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.

Complete and move in

On the date of completion, you become the legal owner of your new home. Collect the keys and make yourself comfy!
