Feature Development – Mendip Gate, Churchill

Posted 13 September 2021 by Keith Osborne

Lovers of life close to countryside, coast and city could find the home they want at Mendip Gate in Somerset…

Since its launch at the end of last year, Newland Homes’ Mendip Gate has proved popular with buyers in Somerset, but there are still opportunities for house-hunters looking for the ‘sweet spot’ of all the benefits of life that a combination of countryside, coast and city can bring.

Mendip Gate is set between the villages of Churchil and Langford, which is situated on the north edge of the Mendip Hills, a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which includes places like Cheddar Gorge and Wookie Hole. When complete, Mendip Gate will comprise 40 three-, four- and five-bedroom houses in a range of designs that are contemporary but influenced by historic local styles, with a real variety of brick and render finishes making for scenic street scenes.

The striking countryside setting is only part of its appeal though. It’s only 10 miles to the seafront of Weston-super-Mare and the town’s host of shops, amenities and leisure facilities, and only half-an-hour’s drive to the centre of Bristol for an even wider choice and diversity of places to go and things to do. The best of rural, coastal and urban life are all within easy reach of Mendip Gate.

The landscape of the Mendip Hills, including downs, plateaux, woodlands, lakes, caves and cliffs, not only offers a real range of views but also a host of activities. There are places for easy walk with the dog, a varied cycle ride or a challenging climb above or underground. There’s plenty of other outdoor exercise and competition to find in the area too, with a number of golf and other sports clubs

For destinations further afield, it’s under 15 minutes to Bristol Airport and 35 minutes to Bristol Temple Meads station. The M5 is 20 minutes away.

‘The Prestbury’ house type currently for sale on Plot 1 is one of the highlights of the development. At the front of this detached home is a spacious lounge with feature bay window. Passing up the hallway, past the downstairs cloakroom and a handy storage cupboard under the stairs, and you reach the extensive open-plan kitchen/dining/family room, which has an impressive sun lounge which floods the hub of the home with natural light and provides access to the garden/patio via French doors.

The kitchen, with a generous amount of storage and workspace, an island hob/breakfast island and a range of integrated appliances has the additional features of a larder and a utility room with its own sink, worktop and storage and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer to keep these noisy units away from the living area.

Upstairs, bedroom one is a double with plenty of built-in wardrobe space and its own en suite shower room. Bedrooms two and three are also doubles and bedroom four is a single room that could equally play another role, such as home office, nursery or hobby room. The first floor is completed by the bathroom and airing cupboard.

Plot 1 is priced at £480,000, ready to move into and comes with a single detached garage and a private driveway for at least two vehicles. For a limited time Newland Homes will pay the buyer’s Stamp Duty in full (subject to terms and conditions). It has also been fitted with a number of upgrades, which include the choice of fitted kitchen units; tiling options from the Porcelanosa range; flooring throughout including carpets, Amtico and ceramics; plus rear garden landscaping touches.

The standard specification includes integrated kitchen appliances; bathroom and en suite fitted with Villeroy and Boch white sanitaryware and chrome fittings, USB charging points as part of a double socket are provided in kitchen, lounge and principal bedroom; a number of telephone and TV points throughout; and fitted wardrobes to bedroom one.

As with all detached properties at Mendip Gate, and reflecting the company’s commitment to eco-conscious homes, there’s a generous provision of eight solar panels (exceeding official requirements) to assist with electricity, integrated eco-bins designed into every kitchen to encourage recycling, rain waterbutts and composters. Outside, wiring has been included for an optional electric vehicle charging point.

Right now there are four- and five-bedroom show homes to explore, and the currently available selection of three- and four-bedroom homes are priced from £380,000 and £465,000 respectively. The site is open by appointment daily from 11.00am to 5.00pm. All homes are expected to be completed by next Spring.
