Interest grows as Redrow launches its latest Hawarden development

HOMEBUYERS can be first in the queue for a brand new home in the sought after village of Hawarden next Friday when Redrow launches its latest development.

Gladstone Leigh, off Overlea Drive, will eventually feature 44 new homes in a popular location, which will appeal to families and first time buyers alike.

The homes will officially go on sale on Friday, September 27, when Redrow opens the doors to a new marketing suite where visitors can view plans for the development and find details of the individual properties for sale.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Gladstone Leigh enjoys a prime location in the charming village of Hawarden, which is one of Flintshire’s property hot spots thanks to its quaint village centre, award-winning restaurants and pubs and close proximity to Chester.

“We’ve received a high level of interest ahead of the launch and we look forward to welcoming homebuyers to the development. We know from our other developments in the area that the housing market in Flintshire is really strong and there is certainly a high demand for quality built traditional family homes.”

Gladstone Leigh will feature beautifully crafted properties from Redrow’s Heritage Collection – a premium housing product with more than a hint of nostalgia in its exterior design, and yet boasting a high calibre interior specification to meet the needs of modern lifestyles. 

There will be a range of properties to suit everyone; from delightful two-bedroom homes, perfect for first time buyers or downsizers, to large four-bedroom detached family homes, all set amid attractive landscaping with areas of open space incorporated within the development.

Anita added: “Redrow has a proud reputation in North Wales and the North West for quality craftsmanship. We’ve seen tremendous sales success at nearby developments including Heathlands, in Buckley, Heritage Park, in Penymyndd, and Crown Park, in Chester. We are looking to build on this success and believe that the homes at Gladstone Leigh will be just as popular.”

A stylish show home is due to open in November to display the high specification interiors on offer. Until then homebuyers can visit Redrow’s other developments nearby to view a number of show home designs.

The Hawarden location of Gladstone Leigh is a major selling point. There is a small selection of local boutiques, convenience stores, lively pubs and fine restaurants in the village, as well as a Tesco superstore in nearby Broughton and Asda in Queensferry. Broughton Retail Park offers a fantastic selection of high street fashion and home furnishings stores.

At just seven miles away, Chester offers an exceptional shopping experience complemented by a unique range of boutique independent shops and an unbeatable choice of cafes, bars and restaurants. The location is a commuters dream, with Wrexham just 12 miles away and Liverpool 18 miles away.
