Davidsons Homes has begun the groundworks for the final house being built at a new development in Irthlingborough.

Once work is complete, Diamond Heights, off Attley Way, will comprise 88 properties with a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom designs.

Construction is expected to finish by the end of the year, which will mark two years since building work first began at the development.

An area of natural open space around a balancing pond, along with a children’s playground, will also form part of the site north of Nene Business Park.

Simon Tyler, sales director for Davidsons Homes South Midlands, said: “With construction now under way on the final property at Diamond Heights, it is with great pride that we look forward to bringing our work at this well-designed development to a steady close.

“Our Georgian and Victorian-inspired homes have proven popular with a host of buyers, from first-time purchasers to growing families.

"The fact that most sales have taken place over the last year – across three lockdowns – is testament to the high demand for housing in this part of East Northamptonshire.

“The popularity of Diamond Heights is in part down to its sought-after location along the River Nene and proximity to Irthlingborough Lakes and Meadows, but also due to Davidsons Homes’ carefully considered home layouts which are crafted to suit modern living.”

As part of the planning deal agreed with the local council, Davidsons Homes will be investing nearly £900,000 into the local community, including £314,000 to nearby secondary schools, £280,000 to primary schools and £150,000 for the local bus service.

There is currently a selection of two and three-bedroom homes available at Diamond Heights, with prices starting from £229,995.
