Set within acres of beautiful green parkland, ‘The Woodlands’ is the latest phase of homes to be launched at Locking Parklands, situated just a mile outside the quaint seaside town of Weston-super-Mare.

Boasting a selection of luxury houses – which are now available to buy off-plan – the stylish properties at The Woodlands help redefine the concept of new build houses, with all the homes benefitting from a unique and contemporary design.

Set within large areas of open parkland, amid many natural wildlife habitats, the 37 homes at The Woodlands are currently under construction. All houses are being built with light and spacious rooms and particular emphasis is being given to higher ceilings and larger than average windows – helping to make the most of natural light and conserving heat.

When complete, The Woodlands will boast seven new house designs with three, four and five bedroom houses. The properties are already selling from plan, and are currently available from £229,500 for a semi-detached three bedroom Maple design.

Neil Simpson, sales director at St. Modwen Homes said: “To help showcase the new homes at The Woodlands we have now launched a stunning show home for people to come along and see. It is one of the seven new house designs at Locking Parklands and really helps to show off the unique style of these properties, alongside the high quality build and modern fixtures and fittings – all the extra bits which help a house feel like a home.

“The show home has a full height central window at the front of the property which makes it really stand out in the local market place – it is nothing like other new build homes you see in the area. We wanted to make sure that people don’t walk onto Locking Parklands and think it’s just like every other new-build development out there.”

Designed with householders in mind, all the homes at The Woodlands are being finished to the highest standard, boasting Roca ceramic-ware bathrooms with Ferrara oak effect cabinets and designer Alno kitchens – which come in a range of colours – in addition to Electrolux integrated dishwashers, fridges and ovens, all fitted as standard.

Outside, glass patio doors lead onto a turfed rear garden – letting the outside in – and a landscaped garden can be found to the front of the property. Additionally, by purchasing a home off-plan, buyers are able to choose their perfect plot, and put a personal stamp on their home with a range of stylish fixtures and fittings to choose from.

St. Modwen Homes’ long term vision is to create a sustainable community at Locking Parklands, with local amenities and community facilities located in one place, including a local school, a library and a convenience store. Offering vibrant and contemporary homes that provide the answer to the modern schedules and lifestyles of today, the development provides a welcoming and vibrant neighbourhood in a prime location, with comfortable access to Bristol – whilst lying just minutes’ drive away from the sea.

The Locking Parklands marketing suite, located off Farnborough Road, is open for visitors seven days a week between 10am and 6pm. For further information please call the St. Modwen Homes sales team on 0844 243 4848 or visit
