A potential development site on the outskirts of Great Bowden earmarked for up to 50 new homes has been sold to housebuilder Mulberry Homes through land agents Mather Jamie.

The 5.91 acre site on Leicester Lane is situated on the western edge of the south Leicestershire village, within easy reach of Market Harborough, and already has outline planning permission granted by Harborough District Council for the erection of 50 dwellings.

Nearby is Market Harborough Railway Station, from where London St Pancras can be reached in under an hour, Harborough Innovation Centre, a business community for new businesses, and the idyllic Foxton Locks, one of Leicestershire’s favourite tourist attractions.

Gary Kirk, Associate Director of Mather Jamie, said: “We completed the sale of this superbly situated and much sought-after site on the fringes of Great Bowden, to established local developer Mulberry Homes.

“The purchaser now has an excellent opportunity to create even more high quality properties in this very popular village, which is ideally placed for families and commuters alike.”

Mulberry Homes has recently launched its brand new development of Hursely Park, on Welham Lane, made up of 50 family homes, elsewhere in Great Bowden, with its marketing suite and show homes now open to the public.

Steve Mitchell, Land and Operations Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We are delighted to have secured another 50 units in the thriving village of Great Bowden, as providing high quality homes to the local area is a key priority for us.

“We will be bringing a selection of three and four-bedroom family homes forward, to complement our recently launched homes at Hursley Park. We are hoping to be in a position to break ground at Leicester Lane in autumn this year, with completions planned for April 2019 onwards.”
