Last home up for grabs after sales success

development mean there is just one home left for sale.
The enthusiastic take-up by first-time buyers prompted a timely

get their foot on the local property ladder.
"Don't delay," she urged potential buyers who may be eyeing up
property in and around the Warwickshire village of Meriden, midway
between Solihull and Coventry. "We've got just one two-bed house
left for sale and a lot of active interest. When it's gone, it's

win-win combination of "great homes, great location and great
prices" at Meriden Gate.

Meriden is a 15-minute drive from the centre of Coventry and the
village is ideally placed for commuting. The A45 and M42 are both

Trish. "Meriden has pretty much everything you could want - from
the village green and a range of local shops and pubs to a really
