Househunters looking for a perfect family home in south east Wales are being invited to view St. Modwen Homes’ stylish range of homes at a special open weekend on Saturday 18th October at the £2bn Glan Llyn development in Llanwern, Newport.

Up and coming stars from the Newport Gwent Dragons, Matthew Screech and Cory Hill, will be opening the doors to the stunning new four bedroom show homes ‘The Austell’ and ‘The Aerderyn’ for the first time during the weekend, with the players staying around for photos and autographs between 11am – 12.30pm. Both Matthew and Cory have represented Wales at U20 level and broken through to the Dragons senior squad this season.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director for St. Modwen Homes, said: “We’re delighted to welcome people to our new show homes at the Glan Llyn development this weekend, which really does showcase the high quality specification of the St. Modwen Homes product. Carefully designed with the needs of the modern family living in mind, the properties boast a large open-plan kitchen and dining area, along with a duel aspect lounge with French doors opening out to the garden. Typical of St. Modwen Homes, the properties also boast higher than average ceilings and full-height windows, allowing natural light to flood through the homes.”

The 47 new St. Modwen Homes properties at Glan Llyn, will comprise a range of two, three and four bedroom homes, with a number of properties overlooking the lakes and mature green landscape at the development. The properties will be available under the Government’s “Help to Buy” scheme making them ideal for first time buyers or those looking for their second or third home. Prices start from £139,000 for a two bedroom home to £249,000 for a four bedroom home.

Glan Llyn is being developed by UK leading regeneration specialist St. Modwen, using a phased approach delivering 4,000 new homes over the next 20 years. The 600 acre site will provide a new local centre offering leisure and retail space supported by new education facilities all surrounded by 80 acres of extensive open parkland.
