Music legend David Bowie never forgot his south London origins, and Cane Hill Park has a notable connection to one of his 1970s albums...

David Wilson Homes is unveiling a new development of homes in Coulsdon, south London this weekend (Saturday 30 January) and the location has a strong connection to recently deceased rock god, David Bowie.

The site of Cane Hall Park, formerly home of Cane Hill psychiatric hospital, was featured on the American album cover for Bowie’s 'The Man Who Sold The World' album.

The Man Who Sold The WorldThe development has already generated interest from local buyers, says Pam Reardon, sales and marketing director for David Wilson Homes, with a number of its homes already reserved by ‘early bird’ buyers.

“There has been tremendous interest in the new homes since we first announced plans for Cane Hill Park and several people have already bought off-plan,” says Reardon. “It seems the combination of this fantastic location, the design of our homes and the overall concept of the development is proving a real draw for homebuyers. We’re looking forward to opening our doors at the end of the month and letting people set foot inside Cane Hill Park for the first time.”

A mix of four- and five bedroom homes will be unveiled at Cane Hill Park, along with a three-bedroom ‘Keats’ show home. The four-bedroom homes are expected to start from £619,995. The development will be taking shape alongside a Barratt Homes scheme which will feature a collection of three- and four-bedroom properties.

Lynnette St Quintin, sales director at Barratt Homes, has also seen considerable interest from a wide range of buyers. “We’ve seen an unprecedented number of enquiries from first-time buyers, families and London commuters so we’re delighted to be able to officially open the doors. Homes at the new development have been created to provide the styles of modern living that buyers are searching for in a new home.”

With energy efficiency a big issue for many homebuyers today, all properties at Cane Hill Park will include rooftop solar panels as well as an innovative waste-water heat recovery system, allowing homeowners to reduce their ecological footprint.
