Two New Show Home Launches In West Sussex

Posted 9 November 2021 by Keith Osborne

Housebuilders are unveiling more show homes for house-hunters to visit in the Barnham and Chichester areas...

West Sussex has a wide appeal to house-hunters thanks to its rage of towns and villages, excellent road and rail links, and some beautiful countryside and coastline. There’s always keen interest in launches of new homes around the county and there are two that have just been announced.

WhatHouse? Award-winning developer Dandara is unveiling its latest project, Fontwell Meadows, on the weekend of Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 November, which will include the unveiling of three show houses. The development will provide 400 new homes (a mixture of one- and two-bedroom apartments and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses) in Fontwell, on the edge of the village of Barnham in West Sussex, just five miles away from the seaside resort of Bognor Regis and close to the beautiful green expanse of the South Downs.

Set in an attractive, semi-rural location, with a masterplan including paddocks, a wildlife meadow, allotments, a multi-use games area, play area and fitness trail, Fontwell Meadows will appeal to lovers of both countryside and coast, with the added bonus of the towns of Chichester, Arundel, Portsmouth, Worthing and Brighton all within easy reach.

The homes have been designed to reflect the local architecture, with brick, flint, weatherboarding, rendering, tile hanging and painted bricks providing interesting detailing. The development has been designed with a series of five different character areas to create attractive street scenes and a sense of place – ranging from larger more imposing homes and mature trees in the Gateway area to suburban designs alongside London Road and a more village feel in the centre. Towards the edge of the development, enclosed “rural courtyards” respond in scale and form to the nearby farmhouse and barns.

To give visitors the chance to experience different facets of the development, Dandara has created three show homes: the two-bedroom ‘Vyne’ house type with an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area and French doors to the rear garden; the three-bedroom ‘Charleston’ with an en suite to the master bedroom; and the double-fronted ‘Farringford’ design with a separate utility room and dual-aspect living area. Hatch Interiors has decorated the interior of the ‘Vyne’, while Abode has created exciting designs for the two larger homes.

Nicki Dennis, head of sales at Dandara Southern, said: “The new show homes give a real flavour of how versatile these properties can be, with open-plan living spaces, generously sized bedrooms, high-quality finishes and plenty of natural light.”

Two new show homes have been launched by Bovis Homes at Minerva Heights, a contemporary collection of three- and four-bedroom houses close to Chichester. Located just a mile from the cathedral city’s centre and near to numerous schools, restaurants and amenities, prices for a three-bedroom home start from £380,000.

Prospective purchasers will be able to view both a three-bedroom ‘Cypress’, available from £435,000, and four-bedroom ‘Aspen’ show home available from £570,000. Both home styles offer ideal family oriented living space with open-plan kitchen and dining areas and separate lounges. The ‘Cypress’ features a utility room, downstairs cloakroom and stylish en suite to one bedroom, and a family bathroom. The ‘Aspen’ boasts a study downstairs making the accommodation adaptable to the demands of family life and working from home needs.

Prospective buyers can review the various choices and options in their chosen new home on the Futurium system, which allows customers to take a ‘virtual step’ into the development using any device, not just in the marketing suite. They can view a walk the street, and visit specific plots to get a feel for the space. They can also create and email themselves a personalised brochure for a home – which has a CGI representation of the kitchen, bathroom and flooring.

Melanie Richards, sales and marketing director at Vistry South, commented: “Buyer demand for larger houses with outside space in areas that offer a rural lifestyle but close to excellent local amenities, transport and vibrant city centres remains high. West Sussex is no different so it is no surprise that Minerva Heights is proving popular.”

Minerva Heights site manager, Ben Hansford, received recognition at the Premier Guarantee Quality Recognition Awards. It recognises the commitment and dedication of the onsite team to deliver an outstanding service.

This brand new community is situated near Minerva Heights Country Park, a 21.92ha space of natural green space which provides locals an area they can walk their dogs, exercise and socialise. It will include new facilities such as a primary school, sports pitches and a centre for employment, retail and health. In addition, you can enjoy fantastic transport links from Chichester train station and the A27 which is within easy reach.

For those existing property owners, Bovis Homes offers its Smooth Move scheme taking away the stress of dealing with estate agents to sell your home and also pays these the estate agents’ fees. Help to Buy is also available at Minerva Heights for first-time buyers. Find out more at bovishomes.co.uk.
