Following the first sign of warmer weather this month, St. Modwen Homes has seen a surge in visitors to its Manorfields development near Swadlincote, with many people looking to move into a new home ready for the summer.

Many of these househunters have visited Manorfields thanks to the three new show homes that are now open. Aimed at people on all stages of the property ladder, the show homes include The Egwin and The Oswald, both of which are three bedroom properties, and a larger four bedroom family home called The Dunstan.

Construction is now well underway on the new homes at Manorfields, with the first homeowners due to move in next month.

Jo Winston, Sales Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said: “Spring is always a popular time for people to consider moving into a new home and we’re certainly seeing this trend at Manorfields.

“Since its launch at the beginning of the year, we’re seen a lot of interest from people in the local area, particularly first time buyers and young families who are attracted by our three bedroom homes. We’ve also received lots of positive feedback about the large windows, high quality fixtures and in-built storage that we include as standard in all our houses at Manorfields.”

Priced from just £179,995, the Oswald property is proving to be one of the most popular house types at the development and boasts three double bedrooms with an en suite leading off the master bedroom, as well as an open plan living and dining room that has stylish patio doors opening out to the rear garden.

When complete, Manorfields will comprise approximately 200 properties, made up of two, three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, in addition to landscaped public areas. All the homes are available to purchase under the government’s Help to Buy scheme, meaning people need a deposit as little as five per cent.

An award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes is the residential part of St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist. The housebuilder currently has 13 active sites located across the UK, including Woodlands Reach in Ravenstone, Edison Place in Rugby and Gregorys Bank in Worcester.
