Just four properties remain for sale at Lovell’s award-winning Minchinhampton development

Lovell's twin schemes in Gloucestershire are now nearly sold out following a WhatHouse? Awards win in 2015...

National housebuilder Lovell is celebrating the success of its award-winning neighbouring schemes in the Cotswold market town of Minchinhampton, Old Common Mews and The Paddocks, as only four of the homes there are now left for sale, including two former show homes.

This combination of two developments just outside Stroud in Gloucestershire won a Bronze at last year’s WhatHouse? Awards – the most coveted prizes in UK housebuilding – for Best Partnership Scheme, in recognition of the achievement of Lovell and Stroud District Council in replacing old, substandard properties with this selection of high-quality family homes.

“We’re extremely proud of these exceptional homes at The Paddocks and Old Common Mews which have all been designed and built to an incredibly high standard,” says Lovell regional sales manager Kelly Sharman. “This is a development which truly complements and enhances its surroundings thanks to the use of attractive local materials such as traditional Cotswold stone, and an equally impressive, carefully-designed landscaped setting.”

The two former show homes are both four-bedroom detached properties with a garage and are offered for sale complete with flooring, curtains and light fittings. One is the ‘Chelford’ home, which is priced at £470,000 (or £376,000 up front with a Help to Buy equity loan), the other the ‘Ilford’, on the market for £429,995 or 343,996 up front with Help to Buy. The other two properties for sale are also four-bedroom detached homes, the ‘Pickford’ and the ‘Rainford’, both priced at £475,000, or for an initial payment of £380,000 with Help to Buy.

“These properties are all highly desirable family homes offering inspiring but practical room layouts, perfect for modern life,” continues Sharman. “Homebuyers with a property to sell can also take advantage of our Helping Hands Plus scheme – a great initiative which takes the stress out of the buying and selling process and which can also be combined with the qovernment-backed equity loan scheme.

“We know from talking with homebuyers that selling their own home is one of the biggest headaches when it comes to moving. Helping Hands Plus works by putting homebuyers in touch with a home purchase company who will look at purchasing their existing property at market value. This allows them to sell their home to a guaranteed buyer with no estate agent’s fees to pay and no risk of getting stuck in a chain.”
