Multi award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes has opened the doors to a brand new development in Swadlincote, located just off the A444 on the outskirts of Castle Gresley.  

Named Manorfields, the development will comprise approximately 200 properties when complete, made up of two, three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached family homes in a variety of different house styles, in addition to landscaped public areas.

Following the launch of the marketing suite, househunters in the local area are now being invited to be the first to visit the new development, as well as see the visuals of the new house designs. It is also the first time that people are able to reserve the new homes from plan, meaning they can secure their favourite plots early.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “We’ve already had a huge amount of interest in our new Manorfields development, with more than one hundred people registering to receive information about the new homes and dozens of people visiting the site at its official launch.

“The initial feedback on the house designs has been fantastic with many people impressed by the large windows, high quality fixtures and fittings and in-built storage that we include as standard. Also, if you purchase from plan, there’s the added benefit of being able to choose which kitchen style and colour suits you best, allowing people to have an input on the design of their new home.  

“Not only are people impressed with the properties at Manorfields but, we also had one househunter who went across to our nearby site, Woodlands Reach in Ravenstone, to see the quality of homes we build and ended up reserving a new home there.”

A mixture of three and four bedroom homes have been released for sale at Manorfields so far, with five house designs to choose from. All the properties have traditional red brick exteriors, with stone sills and door surrounds. Each of the house designs feature stylish French doors leading out to the rear garden and an en suite off the master bedroom. Additionally, the four bedroom properties also boast feature bay windows and, on certain house types, also have Juliet balconies and a separate laundry room, perfect for growing families. In keeping with St. Modwen Homes’ philosophy of light and height, all the new homes feature higher than average ceilings and large windows throughout.  

Prices for the new homes at Manorfields start from just £179,950 and all the properties are available to purchase under the Government’s equity loan scheme, Help to Buy, whereby purchasers require a deposit of just five per cent.

Manorfields is just one of St. Modwen Homes’ housing sites across the UK, with other developments including Edison Place in Rugby, Woodlands Reach in Ravenstone and Gregorys Bank in Worcester. Now in its fourth year, St. Modwen Homes has already established a name for itself as a trustworthy developer that ensures the local community and high quality standard of living remain the top priorities when building new homes.
