A showhome has opened its doors at a new development in Wherstead, where more than a third of the homes for sale have now been reserved.

The four-bedroom detached Scrivener has been unveiled at Bellway’s Bourne View, giving prospective buyers the chance to visualise the layout and quality of homes at the development.

With construction progressing well on the site off Bourne Hill, the first residents at Bourne View moved into their new homes last month (December) – and 20 of the 49 private homes have already been sold.

Bellway is also providing a further 26 homes at the development as affordable housing, available for local people through rent or shared ownership.

Jenny Walker, Sales Director for Bellway Essex, said: “Bourne View is already proving to be very popular with buyers and there has been an extremely positive response to the opening of our Scrivener showhome at the development.

“Visitors have been impressed with the spacious kitchen, dining and family area, which is ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. We’ve also received lots of comments about the practicality of the layout, which features a utility room and two large storage rooms.”

The Scrivener’s open-plan kitchen, dining and family room has French doors leading out into the rear garden, as well as a separate living room sand downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, including one with an en suite, and a family bathroom.

Jenny said: “The showhome is available to view by prior appointment, so we would encourage anyone interested in seeing the Scrivener to contact our sales team as soon as possible to arrange their visit.”

Bourne View comprises a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses in a range of designs.

There is currently a choice of three and four-bedroom properties available to reserve, with prices starting from £319,995. One four-bedroom Scrivener is available, priced at £407,995.
