Homes moving fast at St John’s

Homes at St John’s Village in Bracebridge Heath are being snapped up by eager buyers as soon as they become available, according to the agent on the scheme.

In the last week alone, six three and four bed family homes have been sold by agent Pygott & Crone.Mel Parker, new homes manager at Pygott & Crone, who manages the St John’s Village portfolio, said that the site is starting to look like a luxury residential area now further construction progress has been made.

He said: “This is an exciting and unique development and we are finding that buyers are securing these properties as soon as they become available, particularly the listed homes which are all completely individual and are stunning.

“Work started on this substantial site in 2013 and now work has completed on part of the existing listed building which has been renovated and restored into homes, you can really see this beautiful scheme coming to life.“The existing listed parts of the building work so well alongside the new builds as developer Mabec has focussed on sympathetically developing the site in-line with its history and much attention, and funds, has been used to ensure this is the case, such as using high quality stone and traditional masonry techniques.”

The agent is also seeing a substantial proportion of its buyers coming from outside the area. Within the recent flurry of sales, customers have hailed from Scotland, London and Grimsby.
