Almost half the homes sold at Gloucester development
One year on from the start of construction work at a new development on the outskirts of Gloucester, a new community is starting to take shape.
Almost half of the private homes at Sandalwood Green in Hempsted – where Bellway is building 30 properties for sale and 20 affordable homes – have now been sold. Five of the 14 homes sold are now finished and occupied by their new owners.
Meanwhile, eight of the affordable properties, available for local people through low-cost rent or shared ownership, have also been completed and handed over to residents.
Work is progressing well on site and is due to be completed next year.
Dan Shone, Sales Manager for Bellway, said: “It’s satisfying to mark one year of construction at Sandalwood Green by seeing the new community here getting established.
“We are nearly at the halfway stage on construction work for the affordable properties and it is good to see people settling into homes that they might not otherwise have afforded.
“With more sales going through, it will not be long before our first residents have new neighbours joining them.
“It is already clear that this is a popular development – and that’s because the location has so much to offer. Being only two miles from Gloucester’s centre, residents have easy access to all the independent shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues of this historic cathedral city.
“And that’s not to mention the easy road links to the M5 and the fact that Gloucester railway station is only a short drive away, which make it an ideal spot for commuters.”
The properties for sale at Sandalwood Green are a mix of four and five-bedroom detached houses.
A five-bedroom Watchmaker showhome opened in June to help buyers visualise life in a new home at the development. As well as five double bedrooms, two of which have en suites, the showhome has an open-plan kitchen/dining/family room with bifold doors to the garden, a separate living room, a study and a utility room.
There’s a choice of four-bedroom homes currently available to reserve at Sandalwood Green, with prices starting from £459,995.
