Wales new homes round-up – the best new build properties now on sale

Posted 14 September 2017 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team chooses some of the very best new homes for sale right now across Wales, to suit a range of budgets and requirements...

Average rents increased across most of Wales in July, and have grown by 4.3% in the last 12 months to an average of £595 per month. This, coupled with a decline in the number of rental properties on the market, is encouraging many tenants to consider buying their own home.

For prospective buyers in Wales who have already launched their house search we have put together a selection of interesting current developments distributed across the country.

Rhos y Bryn in Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire, West Wales (Enzo's Homes)

Rhos y Bryn (Enzo's Homes)Set in the quiet rural village of Cross Hands, yet within easy striking distance of the A48 and the M4 corridor, this development from Enzo's Homes includes 16 luxury two- and three-bedroom homes.

Towns such as Carmarthen (12 miles) and Llanelli (10 miles), and the lively city of Swanesa (16 miles), are all within easy reach, making it a convenient location despite its quaint charm. And there is plenty of exciting change in the immediate local area, too: Cross Hands is a growing residential and employment area, and includes the established Cross Hands Food Park and the soon-to-be-developed Cross Hands Business Park, which is expected to create around 1,000 jobs. In addition, Carmarthenshire County Council plans to build a new link road which will enable traffic on the A476 to bypass the congested Cross Hands roundabout, improving traffic flow in the area.

Carmarthenshire is also a county that is rich in leisure opportunities -- from visits to the National Botanical Gardens of Wales and country parks to exploring the dedicated cycling track that links Cross Hands to Llanelli.

Prices: A three-bedroom detached home with off road parking and a 3kw Solar PV System is currently for sale, priced at £199,950.
