Sales of new homes in Fradley prepare for take off
NEW homes next to a former airfield in Staffordshire will commemorate the area’s history and buyers hoping to land one of the homes are being urged to register their interest now.
RAF Lichfield played a key role in training aircrew using Wellington Bombers during World War II. Almost 60 years after its closure, Redrow is commemorating the airbase by naming its development on neighbouring land ‘Wellington Place’.
There will be 52 homes for sale in a choice of two, three and four-bedroom designs from the sought-after Heritage Collection.
With a database of 265 potential purchasers waiting in the wings, those who haven’t already registered their interest are encouraged to do so.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said: “The list of people interested in the home we’re building at Wellington Place is growing daily and we expect it will increase as the properties take shape. The volume of enquiries we’ve received so far demonstrates the demand for homes in the area and that buyers recognise Redrow as a quality builder. We’ll be inviting those who’ve expressed an interest to a special preview event before the homes are released for sale to the general public – another reason to register now.”
Prices for the properties will be announced at the launch.
Inspired by the architecture of the Arts & Crafts era, the homes will look traditional from the outside, but inside will feature a high specification designed to meet the demands of modern living.
Kitchens will be well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, while bathrooms and en-suites will benefit from sleek white suites with quality fixtures and fittings.
“We would encourage anyone who is interested in the development and hasn’t already done so to create a My Redrow account on our website,” Pauline added.
“Here they will be able to view the floor plans, select their favourite house styles and, once the development has launched, they’ll be able to make appointments to speak with the sales team to reserve their new home.”
Along with the homes, Redrow will create a play area within the development and there will also be an area of public open space.
The housebuilder has also committed to a package of community investment known as a section 106 agreement totalling £900,000, including around £700,000 allocated to local education.
The new homes are being built close to the Coventry Canal, just half a mile from the centre of the village. The village hall, skate park and ball court, primary school, post office and village green are all within a 10-minute walk; while Lichfield is 10 minutes away by car.
