For purchasers looking for a contemporary new home in a village setting yet still with excellent links to central London, look no further than St. Modwen Homes’ new Bennett’s Fields development in South Ockendon, Essex.

With the development’s marketing suite due to launch in October, the award-winning housebuilder is urging purchasers to register their interest now to be amongst the first to find out about the brand new properties on offer.

Once complete, Bennett’s Fields will comprise 230 stylish homes on the site of the former Ford factory, and will include a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, as well as two, three, four and five-bedroom homes. The development will also feature a brand new public park with plenty of open green spaces for residents to take advantage of, as well as new well-lit pedestrian and cycle routes.

Catherine Jarrett, Head of Sales South at St. Modwen Homes, said: “The homes at Bennett’s Fields will appeal to a range of purchasers including first-time buyers and growing families looking for a contemporary, spacious home which will benefit from green surroundings, whilst still being just 20 miles from central London. Each of the properties will feature St. Modwen Homes’ high quality design and specification throughout with our philosophy of ‘light and height’ in mind.

“We have already received great interest from people looking for further details about the development, so would encourage anyone keen to know more to register their interest now to receive information on the first release of exclusive new properties, and ensure they don’t miss out on their dream new home.”
