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

Posted 3 September 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...

UK house prices gained a bit of momentum in July, according to mortgage lender Nationwide, after rising at their slowest annual rate in five years in June. But experts say the South West’s market remains subdued, with rental prices expected to rise.

For those who are intending to buy, there are plenty of interesting new developments springing up across the region, many of which have great purchase incentives available.

We’ve found some brand new developments that have launched in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon – plus more that are coming soon – catering for prospective buyers seeking homes in all corners of the South West.

St George's Gate in Shide, Newport, Isle of Wight (Barratt Homes)

St George's Gate (Barratt Homes)Two- and three-bedroom homes are being built on the Isle of Wight in the small settlement of Shide, conveniently close to Newport’s lively town centre. The collection includes two- and three-bedroom houses as well as luxury two-bedroom apartments. Due for launch in December 2018, Barratt has now pre-launched the range due to high demand.

Surrounded by countryside and many lovely walking routes, there are also local schools within walking distance, superb transport links, and the Shide Quarry Nature Reserve is right next door. Add to this a choice of shops, restaurants and cafes nearby – as well as a golf course and cricket club – and this is an ideal location for families and others seeking out a tranquil place to live.
