The first residents have moved into their new homes at a housing development in Malvern, where a new community is beginning to take shape.
Bellway South Midlands is building 110 homes at The Rosehips, off Lower Howsell Road, with 15 of the properties now completed and the first seven homes occupied.
The development includes two, three and four-bedroom houses and two and three-bedroom bungalows for private sale, alongside a mix of affordable houses and apartments for local people.
Bellway is also providing more than five acres of public open space, including two ponds and a children’s play area, as part of the plans.
Building work began at The Rosehips in August last year, with work expected to be completed in 2022.
Head of Sales for Bellway South Midlands, Elaine Brown, said: “Work is progressing well at The Rosehips and it is great to see the first residents moving in here.
“There has already been a real mix of buyers at the site from young first-time buyers through to those in their 80s, with some residents relocating either to be closer to family or to retire. There is a home for everyone here.
“The homes at The Rosehips are helping to meet the growing demand for new housing in Worcestershire – providing modern living within the desirable surroundings of the Malvern Hills.
“The development is also attracting visitors for its convenient transport links, as it benefits from quick access to the M5 and Malvern Link railway station, which has direct trains to Worcester, Birmingham, Oxford and London Paddington.”
There are two showhomes available to explore at The Rosehips – the three-bedroom Tailor and four-bedroom Elm designs – for visitors who book a viewing appointment in advance.
Elaine said: “Visiting the showhomes is one of the best ways for people to visualise living at The Rosehips, so I would encourage those who are looking for a new home in the area to get in touch with our sales team for more information.”
The Rosehips will be made up of homes from Bellway’s Artisan collection, which is a brand-new range of house types named after traditional craft vocations.
There’s currently a choice of three and four-bedroom houses and a three-bedroom bungalow available to reserve at The Rosehips, with prices starting from £269,500.
