A new housing development is beginning to take shape near Sherfield-on-Loddon, with the first homes set to go on sale in February. Bellway is building 150 properties at Longfield Place, off Reading Road, between Chineham and Sherfield-on-Loddon, including 60 affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
As well as delivering new homes for the local area, the housebuilder is also providing public open space and a children’s play area.
“With construction work progressing well at Longfield Place, we are looking forward to releasing the first properties for sale at the development in the new year. We have worked closely with the local authority to design a development which is sympathetic to its rural surroundings and will meet the needs of local buyers,” said Kim Caldwell, Sales Director for Bellway Wessex.
“We’re providing a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses for private sale, meaning there’s something for people at all stages of the property ladder. We’re also creating new public open space, including a play area and kickabout area for residents to enjoy.
“We’ll be opening a showhome later in the spring, to give prospective buyers the chance to see inside a typical property at the development and appreciate the spacious layout and high-quality finish. We’re already seeing lots of interest in this development, with house-hunters keen to find a high-quality new home in this peaceful, yet well-connected Hampshire location.
“There are good shops and schools within easy reach, plus quick links to the shopping and leisure facilities of Basingstoke and Reading, while the M3 is also close by for those travelling further afield. People also like the reassurance of buying a new home with a five-star rated builder.”
Bellway has been given a five-star rating by the Home Builders Federation – meaning that more than 90 per cent of customers would recommend the housebuilder to a friend or family member – for the past five years running. Bellway Wessex is currently building new homes across Hampshire, West Sussex, Dorset and Wiltshire.
