National housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, is counting down the weeks until it releases the next phase of apartments for sale at its Locking Parklands development in Weston-super-Mare.

Construction is currently well underway on eight private two bedroom apartments, with the roof due to be complete in the next couple of weeks. The apartments will be released for sale in June and form part of the Poppyfields phase at the award-winning development. The apartments will add to the mix of two, three, four and five bedroom homes that have already been built at Locking Parklands.

St. Modwen Homes has received a high level of interest in the apartments, with many people now on a waiting list for the desirable properties.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “This new phase is the third apartment building to be built at Locking Parklands and, already, we’re seeing a high level of interest in these new homes. The previous apartment phase sold within just two months of being launched, so we are really not expecting these properties to be around for very long.”

Designed with first time buyers and young couples in mind, each apartment boasts two bedrooms with an en suite to the master, along with a spacious open plan kitchen, living and dining area with double patio doors leading out on a balcony. Benefitting from high quality and modern fixtures and fittings, each apartment has a designer kitchen and eco-friendly taps in the bathroom and en suite.  

Bev said: “Alongside being designed to a high standard, the apartments also have a fantastic position on the development, overlooking the open green space that is such a key characteristic of Locking Parklands.

“Anyone wishing to know more about these apartments should register their details to be one of the first to receive updates, prices and release dates from St. Modwen Homes.”

Externally, the apartment building has been carefully designed with a mixture of sandstone coloured brick, white render and wood panelling in keeping with the existing characterful house designs at Locking Parklands. Last year, St. Modwen Homes won a national Housebuilder Award for its stand-out properties at the development.

As an added bonus, all of the new apartments will be available to buy using the government’s Help to Buy scheme, meaning purchasers will need a deposit of just 5%. Help to Buy sales now account for around 60% of the property reservations at Locking Parklands.

Located just ten minutes from Weston-super-Mare, residents at Locking Parklands can enjoy the beautiful rural setting of the development, whilst knowing that it is only a short distance from all the local amenities that Weston offers. Additionally, Locking Parklands is conveniently situated for Junction 21 of the M5, offering fast, direct connections to Bristol and further afield.

In addition to its residential offering, Locking Parklands will also boast approximately 650,000 sq ft of employment space when complete, including a 30,000 sq ft Innovation Centre.

The marketing suite, located off Farnborough Road in Locking, is open for visitors seven days a week between 10am and 5.30pm. For further information please call the St. Modwen Homes sales team on 0844 243 4848 or visit
