Homebuyers snapping up houses at St Mark’s View
CHELTENHAM homebuyers are already starting to snap up plots at
the St Mark's View development being built
by Bromford Homes off Tennyson Road.
Three buyers have now reserved homes following a successful open
day launch less than a fortnight ago. Shared ownership buyers have
also been showing keen interest in the five homes being sold under
Bromford's HomeBuy scheme, with two holding
reservations agreed and more likely soon.
Bromford Homes Sales and Marketing Director Bev Hall is delighted
with the very positive reaction from local homebuyers.
"It's been fantastic. We got the chance to meet more than a dozen
prospective buyers when we launched the
scheme at Andrews estate agents and the response was very
positive indeed," she said.
Right product, right place, right time
"From what people have told us, it's very clear that we have the
right product in the right place at the right time − and this is
borne out by fact that we are already starting to take
"Nearly all of the people we've spoken to are locals who want to
buy a home that's near their family and friends. Many of them have
driven past the former factory site, seen the demolition work going
on and now − like us − they can't wait to see the houses take
"I'm pleased to say that the site is now cleared and work has now
started on the foundations. We expect to start laying the first
bricks in early December and − weather permitting − will have the
showhome finished early in the new year and the first occupations
by early spring.
"It's great to see a redundant factory site being given a fresh
lease of life by replacing the old buildings with some really
high-quality homes that meet the needs of local people."
St Mark's View is at the heart of the first Bromford Homes
Facebook page − set up to share updates and other useful
information with the community around Tennyson Road.

The task of updating the page is in the hands of Sales Consultant
Fabio Scimeca, who says: "All the people I spoke to at the launch
were enthusiastic about the development and wanted us to play them
the fly-through video which shows a
computer-generated view of how the development will look.
"We are encouraging everyone − local residents and local
shopkeepers as well as prospective buyers − to follow us on Twitter
@BromfordHomes or make friends with us on Facebook so that they can
keep in close touch with what's going on."
St Mark's View prices start from £167,995 for a
two-bed house and from £212,995 for the three-bed houses, with the
release of prices for the four-bed homes expected early next year.
The five shared ownership homes are scheduled for completion in the
summer of 2013.
