Award winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, has opened the doors to a brand new show home at its Woodlands Reach development in Ravenstone, near Coalville.

The show home is the first to be unveiled at the development and is a stunning three bedroom Duke style property, boasting a white render exterior with hyacinth-blue cladding around the feature bay windows and third floor attic windows.

Inside, the property features an open-plan kitchen and living area with a part partition separating it from the spacious living room. Designed with contemporary living in mind, there is a separate utility room, alongside French doors leading out from the dining room into the turfed rear garden.

Priced at £209,950, the semi-detached house has three double bedrooms – one of which is a loft-style room situated on the third floor of the property with its own en-suite – alongside a dedicated study room, perfect for children doing their homework or parents working from home.

The Duke property is one of eight house styles currently under construction at Woodlands Reach, ranging from two bedroom terraced houses to three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached homes. Located on the tree-lined Ravenstone Road, 190 homes will be delivered at the development when complete.

Guy Gusterson, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes said: “This is the first time that people will be able to walk round the new homes at Woodlands Reach. The show home encompasses everything that helps make St. Modwen Homes stand out from its competitors, including a design-led approach, larger than average windows, spacious living areas and designer appliances fitted as standard.

“Set within the National Forest, Woodlands Reach is an outstanding development that has received many positive comments from both househunters and leading figures in the housebuilding industry. The eco-friendly features such as solar panels, alongside the open green spaces and mature trees really do ensure Woodlands Reach is both a sustainable and picturesque place to live.”

Professionally finished, the show home interior uses earthy tones of green and sand to emphasise its location within the National Forest, with gold beautifications included to add a classical elegance to each of the rooms.

People purchasing a home at Woodlands Reach benefit from designer kitchens, including Electrolux double electric oven and integrated fridge freezer, in addition to contemporary bathrooms with eco-friendly Hansgrohe technology – all of which are fitted as standard with no extra cost to the homeowner.

The new homes are just a short walk away from the Post Office and convenience stores in Ravenstone. For those wishing to commute to work from Woodlands Reach, there is easy access to both the M1 heading towards Nottingham and Leicester and the M42 towards Birmingham.

Last month, St. Modwen Homes was named Best Small Housebuilder in the 2013 national Housebuilder Awards, thanks to the growth and success of the company over the last two years. The judges also commended St. Modwen Homes on its design-led properties and considerate approach to housebuilding.

The housebuilding brand of the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, St. Modwen, St. Modwen Homes currently has five active sites located across the UK, ranging from Edison Place in Rugby to Locking Parklands near Weston-super-Mare.
