First homes on sale at new development in Devon village

The first homes have been released for sale at a new development in the Devon village of Willand.

Bellway is building 125 homes at Fox Mill Gardens, off Meadow Park, and potential buyers had their first opportunity to reserve a place there in December, when a sales cabin was opened on site.

Tim Lund, Sales Director of Bellway South West, said: “Welcoming the first visitors on site at Fox Mill Gardens is a key moment in what we believe will be a very successful development.

“This beautiful location in a county that has some of the most stunning countryside and coastline in the world is something rather special and we anticipate a lot of interest.

“Apart from the obvious natural beauty of the area, this development is a practical proposition too, with Exeter city centre within a half-hour drive – and there’s also easy access to the M5, with two junctions within three miles in either direction.

“Construction work began earlier this year and is progressing well. Next March we plan to open our showhome, which will give people the chance to get a feel for the style and quality of the houses we are building and imagine how a home here could work for them.

“We are building a sustainable and sympathetic development at Fox Mill Gardens, where residents can walk to the school, the post office and the shop. We are focused on retaining many trees and hedgerows and complementing these with new planting and landscaping.

“In addition, Bellway is contributing a significant sum to local services as part of our planning agreement. We will pay £250,000 towards Willand School, £125,000 for off-site open space and £100,000 towards public transport. These commitments are an important part of supporting the community and the people who come and live here.”

Bellway is building a range of three, four, and five-bedroom homes for sale at the development. The houses will be in styles from Bellway’s Artisan Collection, which was developed using feedback from customers and combines traditional craftsmanship with modern construction techniques.

The homes will comprise 81 properties for private sale and 44 affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
