Take a trip to Wellingborough's newest housing estate in Glenvale Park
The sales centre will open this Easter
House hunters will be able to spend an egg-citing Easter weekend in Wellingborough as a new sales room for a housing estate opens its doors.
Barratt Homes, Taylor Wimpey, Keepmoat Homes and Lagan Homes will all build homes on Glenvale Park, the land north of Niort Way and west of the A509 Harrowden Road.
More than 100 plots are up for grabs on the Barratt site with prices ranging from £284,995 to £334,995 for their three and four-bedroom homes.
Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “We’re very excited to launch our new development, Glenvale Park, which will bring a whole new vibrant community to Wellingborough.
“We’ve already seen a lot of interest in the development, and we expect appointments with our sales advisers will be booked up quickly and so recommend eager homebuyers to act soon to avoid disappointment.”
Initial plans from Barratt Homes Northampton promise 'stunning new properties' whilst Taylor Wimpey has been granted approval from Wellingborough Council for a residential development of 261 homes, of which 26 are affordable homes.
There is also a special offer for all NHS workers where a Barratt will contribute five per cent to a deposit, up to £15,000.
Glenvale's phase one will see the central neighbourhood area being built including development around the neighbourhood centre. The second phase will see the western neighbourhood adjacent to the proposed business park being constructed. Finally, the eastern neighbourhood will be developed near the existing Redhill Grange estate.
The density of the housing of apartments, terraces, semi-detached and detached houses will vary across the development, with higher densities in the core of the estate near to local centres.
Buildings will generally be two storeys high, with three or four storeys fronting major routes, within the neighbourhood centre and on key locations where 'architectural emphasis is appropriate'.
The development has promised to deliver a 'good mix of both private market and affordable housing' with homes ranging from one-bedroom to five-bedroom properties.
Two schools, shops and a business park have been planned with almost half of the site designated as open space providing a mix of mature existing woodland, wildflower meadows, grassland areas and open space including family play areas.
All of the open space has been 'strategically planned and linked throughout' by an extensive network of cycle and pedestrian routes.
A spokesman for Barratt Homes said: "Glenvale Park, located on Niort Way, is bringing a collection of three and four bedroom homes to the area and has already seen a lot of interest with eight homes being sold in just two weeks.
"Conveniently located in Wellingborough, residents of Glenvale Park will benefit from easy links to nearby country parks and Wellingborough train station, which has a direct line to London St Pancras which on average takes less than an hour.
"In fact, recent research by CBRE (a property group) was conducted to try and find the most affordable places to live, whilst having a stress free commute to London. In the study, over 150 towns and villages were analysed, and Wellingborough ranked third.
