Fresh perspective for buyers at St Mark's View
THINGS are looking up for homebuyers with the launch of St
Mark's View, a new Bromford Homes development in Cheltenham.
The name is inspired partly by the picturesque parish church and
partly by the playing field and hills that can be seen from parts
of the former factory site where demolition and building work have
With the attractive view that homebuyers will be able to enjoy
from the north-facing corner of St Mark's View, off Tennyson Road, also
comes a fresh way of looking at what homebuyers can expect from a
That's the promise from Bromford Homes Sales and Marketing
Director Bev Hall to anyone who buys a high-quality house.
"We've got great homes to sell at great prices. They're being
built to the highest quality by our award-winning in-house
construction team and include many features as standard that would
come as extras elsewhere," said Bev.
"The big difference is that you − the customer
− decide the way you want to buy. That could be outright sale
or HomeBuy shared ownership, where you part buy and part rent.
"This is possible because we control everything from start to
finish. We build the homes. We control the design and the layout.
And we marry up the right homes with the right buyers at the right
deals to suit their individual finances.
"When you buy one of our Bromford homes, you're buying into
nearly 50 years of housing sector heritage. You're also buying into
a way of life because it's our mission to create homes where people
really want to stay. This is so important to us that we've
enshrined it in our customer charter."
Bromford's in-house construction team has already made a start
on demolishing the former Spirax Sarco works and it's hoped that
the first homes will be finished by early next year.
Of the 21 homes earmarked for outright sale, prices are expected
to start from £160,000 for a two-bed house, with three-bed houses
expected to start from £205,000 and four-bed detached homes
expected to start from £265,000. Actual prices should be released
by mid October.
Five more homes will be sold under the Bromford HomeBuy
shared ownership scheme. This enables first-time buyers and other
people who cannot afford to buy on the open market to purchase
between 25 per cent and 75 per cent of their home while paying
subsidised rent on the remaining share.
"St Mark's View will appeal to a wide range of buyers and not
only people who would normally be looking at properties in the St
Mark's area," said Bev.
"You're in an established, popular suburb of Cheltenham that's
within easy reach of the town centre and all of the amenities like
shops and the station. And yet when you stand in the playing fields
and look out towards the hills you really get the sense of wide
"We believe these homes will also appeal to a wider range of
buyers across Cheltenham − people who want great quality at a
great price and who will appreciate our fresh perspective as well
as those great views."
Pluses for would-be buyers include a range of local
family-friendly feature, includes the highly-regarded Pates Grammar
School and Cheltenham Bournside School and Sixth Form College as
well as local shops. Cheltenham Spa railway station is only ten
minutes walk away − ideal for commuters and junction 11
of the M5 is just two miles.
