South West New Homes Round-up - The Latest New Build Homes For Sale

Posted 23 April 2018 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team looks at the latest range of new build properties for sale in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset...

New buyer enquiries and agreed sales are continuing to decline in South West England for the eighth consecutive month, according to the March 2018 UK Residential Market Survey from RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors).

These figures may appear to give some hope to house hunters who are keen to secure their dream home, but are concerned about tough competition from like-minded buyers. There are ongoing concerns, however, over a lack of affordability in the region, alongside a lack of fresh stock coming onto the market. Experts do say, though, that the unseasonally snowy weather in March may have had some impact on activity, and many predict the pace to pick up again a little during April.

Our new round-up of developments across the South West offers some inspiration for prospective buyers looking at new build homes in both urban and rural locations in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset.

Mellior Park in Pool, Cornwall (Redrow Homes)

Mellior Park in Pool (Redrow Homes)Situated in the heart of the Camborne, Pool & Redruth Urban Regeneration Scheme, this development is within a few miles of some magnificent beaches along Cornwall's north coast, and is close to a whole host of local conveniences for day-to-day living. Hayle and St Ives are to the West, and Truro to the East – all of which are within a 20-minute drive.

Mellior Park was the original location of the Camborne School of Mines, and today is part of the Cornwall and West Devon World Heritage Site which offers a variety of walking paths, cycling trails and visitor attractions.

There is some lovely countryside nearby, combined with commuter convenience thanks to good local transport links.

Prices: Available homes from £246,995.

Kings Gate in Kingsteignton, Devon (Linden Homes)

Kings Gate in Devon (Linden Homes)With a variety of purchase assistance schemes available at this development in South Devon, it looks set to appeal to families hoping to find a high quality home close to a good range of amenities.

The town of Kingsteignton is bypassed by the A380 and is also on the A383, A381, B3193 and B3195.  The location enables easy access to Newton Abbot and Exeter, and is well-situated for local shops, leisure facilities, schools (both primary and secondary) and other facilities.

Made up of 250 two-, three- and four-bedroom properties, Kings Gate will also include several attractive areas of public open space, while Devon's diverse countryside is within easy reach, including Haldon Forest.

Prices: Current availability includes four-bedroom houses priced from £329,950.

Marina Gardens in Southbourne, Dorset (Holton Homes)

Marina Gardens in Southbourne (Holton Homes)Six two-bedroom houses with their own garden and parking are for sale at this development in a convenient spot within Southbourne, a suburb of Bournemouth -- all of which are available through the government-backed Help to Buy scheme.

Ideal for first time buyers and buy-to-let investors, the homes have full gas-fired central heating and double glazing; a modern fitted kitchen including units, worktop, tiles, electric oven, gas hob and extractor hood, and integrated appliances; plus fitted white sanitary ware to the bathroom with ceramic wall tiling. All of the properties will be finished in white emulsion with white gloss woodwork.

Southbourne is more laid-back than central Bournemouth, yet  still has plenty going on - with its own sandy beaches and interesting shopping areas such as Southbourne Grove, a long street that is lined with individual boutique shops rather than the usual high street chains. Seafield Gardens is also local: a Green Flag award-winning public open space providing outdoor facilities, including bowls and tennis.

Prices: To be confirmed.

Staddlecote Place in Trowbridge, Wiltshire (Shepperton Homes)

Staddlecote Place in Wiltshire (Shepperton Homes)Although this development in Wiltshire’s county town is still under construction, only a few homes now remain available (the entire development only incorporates eight homes, including three-bedroom semis and four-bedroom detached properties).

Just eight miles south east of the beautiful city of Bath in Somerset, and close to the Mendip Hills, Trowbridge is packed with historic architecture and surrounded by lovely countryside and places to visit.

Featuring traditional architectural styling and materials characteristic of the popular Arts and Crafts Movement, the homes are warm and welcoming with classic styling combined with designs for modern living. They are situated in a sought-after area within walking distance of the train station and other amenities. The station has good connections to key destinations across the South West including Melksham, Chippenham, Swindon, Bristol, Westbury, Southampton and Weymouth, amongst others. Trowbridge is also well-located for road links: situated on the A361, it offers easy access to Bath and nearby towns as well as quick commutes to the M4 corridor.

Prices: On application.

Riverton Gardens in Puriton, Somerset (Taylor Wimpey)

Riverton Gardens in Somerset (Taylor Wimpey)One to look out for in the near future, Riverton Gardens will offer a rural setting less than 20 miles from Shepton Mallet, incorporating a collection of brand new three- and four-bedroom homes. Prospective buyers will be able to choose from a range of different houses including  semi-detached and detached homes.

The village of Puriton, situated at the westerly end of the Polden Hills, is host to a full range of village facilities including a primary school, pub, church, post office, butcher and hairdresser. It is also in a convenient location for commuters who want immediate access to the M5 (at Junction 23) via the A39. The A38 is just over a mile away, beyond the M5 roundabout. The town of Bridgwater is about four miles away, Weston-super-Mare and Taunton are both about 15 miles away, Wells is 20 miles, and Bristol 35 miles. There are many other regional towns and cities within striking distance, too, including Yeovil and Glastonbury.
