First residents welcomed into new homes at development in Sherfield on Loddon 

The first residents have moved in at a new Bellway housing development in Sherfield on Loddon near Hook.

Bellway Wessex is building 150 new homes at Longfield Place on an 18-acre site off Reading Road.

The housebuilder is delivering a total of 90 new homes for private sale with 60 affordable properties for local people through rent or shared ownership.

Longfield Place will feature a collection of two, three and four-bedroom houses for private sale.

Kim Caldwell, Sales Director for Bellway Wessex, said: “Handing over the keys to our first residents is a very significant milestone in the continuing progress at Longfield Place. As people move in, the development is transforming from a construction site into a vibrant new neighbourhood.

As buyers settle into their new homes, they are starting to meet their neighbours and beginning to build a real sense of community.”   

Longfield Place will feature a public open space, including footpaths, a kickabout area and a children’s play area. There will be 350 parking spaces on the site.

A four-bedroom Philosopher showhome has been opened on the development.

Kim said: “Prospective purchasers are taking full advantage of the opportunity to walk around the property to get a real feel of the high-quality specification and finish that comes as standard with a new Bellway home. The Philosopher showhome has been expertly dressed by our interior design team and paints a perfect picture of exactly how life could look in such a stylish property.

We would encourage anyone who is interested in a new home at this development to come down and have a look. The rural setting, which has well-regarded schools and shops within easy reach is proving particularly popular with families.

“The fact that Basingstoke town centre is just four miles away also appeals to a wide range of buyers.”   

There’s currently a choice of three and four-bedroom homes available to reserve at Longfield Place, with prices starting at £439,995 and £564,995 respectively.
