Multi award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, has launched a brand new residential development off St Georges Lane North in Worcester.

Named Gregorys Bank, the waterside development has already got off to a promising start having sold three properties from plan. 

When complete, the housing scheme will deliver more than 170 three, four and five bedroom luxury houses – some of which overlook the picturesque Worcester and Birmingham Canal. Househunters can now be the first to view the site plans and house designs at Gregorys Bank, with the remaining 42 properties in the first phase of the development available to purchase from plan. 

Guy Gusterson, managing director at St. Modwen Homes said: “We had many people eagerly awaiting the launch of the new homes at Gregorys Bank and the sales team and I are delighted at the initial response the properties have received. 

“St. Modwen Homes is committed to treating each of its developments as individual communities and, as such, we have designed homes specifically in keeping with the local architecture surrounding Gregorys Bank. There are six house designs in total, with a mixture of semi-detached and detached houses, all of which boast a traditional red brick exterior, feature bay windows and French doors leading out onto a rear, turfed garden. 

“All the new homeowners at Gregorys Bank will benefit from spacious homes in a secluded and peaceful setting whilst being just a five minute drive away from Worcester’s historic city centre. The city has much to offer, from its bustling shops, restaurants and bars, to the historic Cathedral and Worcester Woods Country Park just outside the centre – it’s no wonder the city was voted the eighth happiest place to live in the UK earlier this year!”

Gregorys Bank is perfectly situated for those wishing to commute to work in Birmingham city centre or further afield, with the M5 (junctions 6 and 7) just ten minutes away and a direct train to Birmingham taking 40 minutes. 

In keeping with St. Modwen Homes philosophy of light and height, the properties at Gregorys Bank have been designed with higher than average ceiling and large windows, allowing natural light to flood through all of the rooms. 

The new homes at the development start in price from just £257,950 for a three bedroom semi-detached property and are all available under the Government’s Help to Buy scheme. Celebrated for helping to restore confidence in the property market, Help to Buy allows people to purchase a property for just 80 per cent of the listed price whilst still owning 100 per cent of the home. Purchasers are required to obtain a 70 per cent mortgage under the scheme and must pay a deposit of at least five per cent. The homes are also available under St. Modwen Homes’ own Assisted Move scheme. 

Gregorys Bank is one of seven St. Modwen Homes’ housing sites located across the UK with other developments including Edison Place in Rugby, Woodlands Reach in Ravenstone and Park View in Longbridge. Now in its second year of existence, St. Modwen Homes has already established a name for itself as being a trustworthy developer that ensures the local community and high quality standard of living remain the top priorities when building new homes. The housebuilder is part of St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist which has more than 25 years’ experience in the property industry.
