CPBigwood is celebrating its first management instruction from Birmingham-based multi award winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes.

The firm’s residential property management team is to take responsibility of the new homes at St. Modwen Homes’ Branston Leas development located just off the A38 in Branston, near Burton-on-Trent.

Already proving popular amongst househunters in the local area, nearly 60% of the first phase of 64 homes at Branston Leas have now sold. When complete, the development will boast more than 600 two, three, four and five bed homes, appealing to a range of first time buyers, growing families, investors and downsizers.

The new homes are part of a larger development by St. Modwen which includes new shops, a 64 acre industrial park and an extension to Rykneld Primary School. Additionally, St. Modwen is creating a bluebell wood, named Branston Leas Woods, that will become part of the National Forest, with 175 acres of land devoted to recreational areas, meadows and woodlands. The scheme will see the planting of 21,000 trees and 14,000 bluebell bulbs.

Louise Fassnidge, Associate Partner at CPBigwood, said: “We are delighted St. Modwen Homes has chosen CPBigwood as its preferred managing agent.

“This is a new and exciting project where we are working very closely with St. Modwen Homes. We have a clear understanding of our client’s needs and our service is designed to give the very best results.

“Through our offices in Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Loughborough, Southampton and London we manage more than 25,000 units across the country and have plans to double that.”

Located on Thorntree Road, all the homes at Branston Leas have been designed with St. Modwen Homes’ philosophy of light and height, meaning each property has higher than average ceilings and large windows, creating bright and spacious living areas. What’s more, each home boasts a designer kitchen, contemporary bathrooms and high quality fixtures and fittings as standard. Prices for the new homes start from just £174,995 for a three bedroom house.

St. Modwen Homes is the residential part of St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist. Now in its fourth year of existence, St. Modwen Homes has won multiple awards for its house designs and considerate approach to building.
