Work on new homes development in Towcester reaches halfway mark

Construction work is progressing well at Bellway’s new housing development in Towcester, where over half the homes have now been built.

The housebuilder has released the next selection homes for sale at Farriers Court, located off Burcote Road, which comprises a collection of three and four-bedroom properties for sale.

Once complete, the development will total 90 new homes, 73 of which are for private sale and the remaining 17 affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.

Construction began in early 2019 and more than 25 households have already moved in, with the final homes set to be completed in March next year.

Elaine Brown, Head of Sales for Bellway South Midlands, said: “Construction work is making good progress at Farriers Court, with over half of homes now built and one third of the private homes already occupied.

“There is a growing demand for houses in this part of Northamptonshire, which this development is helping to meet. Farriers Court offers buyers a wide range of properties, from smaller homes for first-time buyers and downsizers, to larger properties for growing families. In particular, we have had a large number of families interested in the site.

“The picturesque location and good road links, close to the A5 and A43, also appeal to working professionals looking to move into the south Northamptonshire countryside while retaining easy access to towns such as Northampton and Milton Keynes.

“As part of the planning agreement for Farriers Court, we are also investing more than £800,000 into the local area, which will benefit existing residents as well as those moving into our development.

“These investments include more than £460,000 towards primary and secondary education and £240,000 for sports and recreation. Other contributions will be made to town centre management and improvement, public transport, the fire service, kerbside recycling and public art.”

There are two show homes at Farriers Court which can be viewed by appointment only. The three-bedroom Somerby is an ideal starter home, while the larger three-bedroom detached Lichfield has plenty of space for family living.

There’s currently a choice of three and four-bedroom houses available to reserve at the development, with prices starting from £275,000.
