Construction work has passed a key milestone at a Vistry Group location in Bexhill-on-Sea, where more than half of the new homes have now been built.
Vistry has so far completed 103 of the 200 new homes it is delivering under the Bovis Homes brand at The Gateway in Wrestwood Road.
When complete, the development will include 140 new homes for private sale and 60 affordable properties. The housebuilder has handed over 58 of the private homes and 45 of the affordable properties at the site.
Millie Groves, marketing manager for Vistry Kent, said: “Construction work is progressing extremely well at The Gateway where we have now passed the halfway mark.
“There has been strong demand from a wide variety of buyers which has seen us sell 96 out of the 140 private homes so far.
“The excellent progress in the building schedule has seen us compete 45 of the 60 affordable properties and all of these new homes have new residents living in them. We have also handed over the keys to 58 of the private homes where buyers have moved in.
“This is a very popular development and it is great to see a vibrant new community already taking shape. This organic process will continue as we welcome more and more new residents to the site.
“The buyers here have been a real mixture of local people and purchasers from further afield. People who already live in the area are delighted to be able to secure a new home without having to move away from family and friends.
“We have also had a number of buyers moving here from the South London area. Many are people who are now working from home permanently, which means they don’t have to commute into central London each day. They are realising they can get more for their money here and are embracing the slower pace of life out by the coast.
“The two and three-bedroom homes have attracted first-time buyers and retiring downsizers while the four and five-bedroom properties are proving to be perfect for growing families who need more space. The proximity of a number of well-regarded schools nearby is important to parents while the fact that the beach is just a mile away is a plus point for just about everyone.”
Construction started at the development in autumn 2019 and is due to be competed at the end of 2023.
There’s currently a selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at The Gateway available to reserve, with prices starting at £289,995.
