Posted 29 August 2017 by Rebecca Burns

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

Media reports have hinted that recent minor house price reductions in the South West have sparked a healthy level of property viewings and offers – with an increasing number of sales as a result.

Since the housing market in the region remains fairly buoyant, but there is a lack of new homes being built, competition remains hot between house-hunters. For prospective buyers who are keen to be amongst the first to hear about new homes that become available in the South West, we've put together a current selection of brand new developments across the region.

Brimsmore in Yeovil, Somerset (Wyatt Homes)

Brimsmore (Wyatt Homes)Just a short distance north of Yeovil town centre, this development is within easy reach of both Bath and Bristol, and is also just under two and a half hours from London, placing it in an enviable location. It promises a wide variety of new properties in several different styles and sizes that will be constructed in a number of phases across an attractive 100-acre site.

Brimsmore's architectural features will include a village square and a crescent of townhouses that will be reminiscent of the elegant architecture of nearby Bath. The development will also incorporate a community hall, a doctors’ surgery, a primary school and a children's nursery, plus additional provision for a care home and sheltered housing. Other amenities that are likely to be created as part of the project include sports pitches, a children's play area, a supermarket, retail outlets, a coffee shop and a family restaurant/bar. Cycle paths and bus routes will also be created, linking Brimsmore with Yeovil town centre, and there will be green and natural areas including new woodlands and a pond that will drain away surface water.

The first phase of the development (Area A) is now virtually complete, offering some 109 new homes including two- and three-storey terraced, semi-detached and detached properties with either three, four or five bedrooms.

Prices: £199,000 to £455,000

The Tors in Bovey Tracey, South Devon (Devonshire Homes)

The Tors (Devonshire Homes)New build two- to five-bedroom homes are available in South Devon in the small country town of Bovey Tracey, with dreamy Dartmoor as its dramatic backdrop.

Known as ‘The Gateway to the Moor’, Bovey Tracey is a popular town with over a hundred listed buildings, a small town square, a strong local community, green spaces, and a good range of shops and amenities. Situated on the A382 road, about halfway between Newton Abbot and Moretonhampstead, it is also only about 15 miles from Exeter, making it a great spot for commuters to the city. Two miles away is the A38, the Devon Expressway, a dual carriageway that links Exeter with Plymouth, placing the South Devon coast within easy reach for leisure trips.

Brockeridge Paddocks in Twyning, Gloucestershire (Charles Church)

Brockeridge Paddocks (Charles Church)Just north of the town of Tewkesbury in the quiet, traditional village of Twyning, this site incorporates a range of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes within walking distance of the village shop, pubs and Post Office. Ideal for working families with children, there is an Ofsted-rated "Good" primary school in the village and superb motorway links nearby for commuting.

Promising a rural way of life, Brockeridge Paddocks is also just minutes from the nearest M50 junction, offering easy access to Wales and links to the M5 for trips north or south.

The village also caters well for leisure activities, with an impressive recreation complex run by volunteers that includes a park and children’s playground, three flood-lit tennis courts, a 5-a-side football pitch and a pavilion. The surrounding area has countless public footpaths allowing residents to explore the countryside, and the medieval riverside town of Tewkesbury is less than a 10-minute drive away for a wider choice of amenities, shops and visitor attractions.

Mazzard View in Landkey, North Devon (Devonshire Homes)

Mazzard View (Devonshire Homes)This development of 77 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes in the popular village of Landkey takes its name from the area’s famous Mazzard trees: a variety of wild cherry discovered by local farmers in the early 1800s (and rescued from near extinction thanks to the Countryside Agency’s ‘Millennium Green’ project in 2000). Mazzard View has nine different house styles to choose from, suiting first time buyers right through to growing families, all of which have been carefully designed to reflect the character of existing local architecture.

Situated on a tranquil road surrounded by gorgeous Devonshire countryside, yet within easy striking distance of the main A361 North Devon Link Road and only three miles from the heart of thriving Barnstaple, the development offers a combination of peace and convenience. Landkey itself has good community facilities including a village store and Post Office, a day nursery, a primary school, a church and a pub, as well as Portmore Golf Park just outside the village.

Prices: From £289,950 upwards.
