Award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes has opened the doors to not one, but three, stunning new show homes at its Manorfields development in Swadlincote.

The three show homes – two of which are three bedroom houses named The Egwin and The Oswald and one is a four bedroom home called The Dunstan – are the first properties to be unveiled at the development, which is located just off the A444 on the outskirts of Castle Gresley.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “Unveiling the first completed homes at a new development is always an exciting milestone and, with three show homes launched at Manorfields, it allows people to see a variety of house styles available and the quality of homes we’re building.”

As the stand-out show home at the development, the Dunstan property boasts four double bedrooms, as well as spacious rooms throughout. Professionally styled, the house has been decorated with a muted colour scheme, complimented with mauve and stone coloured accessories. Subtle feature walls are used to add a sense of grandeur throughout the property, as are statement lamps and crystal chandeliers.

Bev said: “We’ve already had a huge amount of interest in the development since launching late last year and received positive feedback about the large windows, high quality fixtures and fittings and in-built storage that we include as standard in all our houses at Manorfields.”

All of the show homes boast traditional red brick exteriors, with stone sills and door surrounds, as well as spacious living areas including a large open plan dining/kitchen area with French doors leading out into the rear garden. In keeping with St. Modwen Homes’ philosophy of light and height, all the new homes feature higher than average ceilings and large windows throughout. 

When complete, the development will comprise of approximately 200 properties, made up of two, three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, in addition to landscaped public areas.

Prices for the new homes start from just £179,950 and are available to purchase with a deposit as little as five per cent under the government’s equity loan scheme, Help to Buy.
