Home of the Day – The ‘Cornell’, David Wilson Homes

Posted 21 February 2020 by Keith Osborne

The WhatHouse? team's current favourite new home for sale is the ‘Cornell’ at King’s Wood Gate in Monmouth...

The WhatHouse? team reports on our current favourite new home for sale right now – today, we pick the ‘Cornell’ house type at King’s Wood Gate, a David Wilson Homes development in Monmouth, Wales.

Plot 339 of this double-fronted, link-detached, four-bedroom house type comes with a single attached garage and parking for two cars, and is priced £342,000. It’s available using Part Exchange, a big helping hand to house-hunters moving up the property ladder. Off the spacious hallway, on one side is the double-aspect lounge with bay window. On the other side is the large, open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, which comes with a glazed bay complete with French doors to the garden. There’s a utility room with worktop and storage, which also has a useful storage cupboard under the stairs. There’s a cloakroom in the hallway next to those stairs, which take you up to a landing off which are the family bathroom, one single bedroom-cum-home office and three double bedrooms, with the master having an en suite shower room.

Over 90% of the homes at King’s Wood Gate are sold but there’s still a fine mix of three-, four- and five-bedroom houses still available, priced £229,000 to £437,995, with Help to Buy an option for some buyers. There’s currently a special offer – David Wilson Homes will pay 12 months of your mortgage when you reserve in February (subject to terms and conditions). Monmouth itself is on the edge of the beautiful Wye Valley and thanks to the A40, just a few minutes away, places like Newport, Cardiff, Bristol and Worcester are all well under an hour away.

The ‘Cornell’ house type is also available right now at many other David Wilson Homes developments across the country, including:

Tarka Ridge in Barnstaple, Devon, where Plot 80 is priced £375,000.

The Wickets in Northampton, where Plot 132 is priced £383,995.

Emmet’s Reach in Birkenshaw, West Yorkshire, where Plot 82 is priced £359,995.

Bentley Fields in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, where Plot 67 is priced £360,000.

There’s a ‘Cornell’ show home at the Hallam Park and Darwin View development in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
