New homes coming to Derbyshire

Property hunters will soon be able to check out the first homes available at a brand new housing development in Drakelow.

The eagerly-anticipated Walton Road community will feature a selection of spacious three, four and five bedroom properties, each crafted to the highest of standards with family living in mind.

The David Wilson Homes development, known as Drakelow Park, will feature a total of 168 homes and will see the opening of a sales cabin on Saturday 28th January, launching the first properties to reserve off-plan.

The leading housebuilder is returning to the area following the successful sale of its former phases at the development, to offer Derbyshire property seekers a second chance to settle down in the sought-after community.

Buying off-plan refers to the purchase of a property before it has been built and finished, and there are many benefits for house hunters who prefer to go down the route of an early reservation.

Purchasers who reserve early get the first choice of homes and the ability to personalise the property down to the finishing touches, which allows for further control in the customisation of their homes.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “We are delighted to announce that our new Drakelow Park development will soon have its first properties for sale.

“Drakelow is the perfect location given its historical village setting, and its close proximity to Burton-upon-Trent, which is home to a variety of shops, restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and the popular Branston Golf and Country Club.

“We have exciting plans ahead of this development, such as a proposed on-site school to be built, and we encourage anyone interested in finding out more about the properties available to book an appointment with one of our Sales Advisers.”

A new home at Drakelow Park could save house-hunters up to £2,600 per year on energy bills.

For working professionals, the towns of Burton, Derby and Lichfield are just a short journey away via the A48, A511 and A444.
