Two housing developments which are bringing 310 new homes to Oadby will both be opening their doors next month.
Bellway is building 221 new homes at Stoughton Park, off Gartree Road, while Ashberry Homes is delivering 89 homes at neighbouring Horwood Gardens. Work on site began last autumn.
Sales centres at the two developments will open on Saturday 1 May, when the first homes will be released for sale.
A mix of 217 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes will be provided for private sale across the two developments, alongside 93 affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
Elaine Brown, Head of Sales for Ashberry Homes South Midlands, said: “This is an exciting joint venture with Bellway, which will help to meet the growing need for new housing in Oadby.
“We’ve already seen the exceptional level of demand in the area, with the two sites receiving enquiries from more than 3,000 people since details were released about the new homes coming soon.
“This is set to be a highly popular location, with public open space and woodland on the doorstep, yet within easy reach of Leicester city centre and the University of Leicester campus.”
Fiona Bray, Sales Manager for Bellway East Midlands, said: “Horwood Gardens and Stoughton Park are both attractive developments in an ideal location. Situated only five miles from the city centre and surrounded by the Leicestershire countryside, residents can experience the best of both worlds.
“The development is close to shops, supermarkets and local businesses in Oadby, while Highcross and Fosse Park shopping centres are also within easy reach. The city centre has plenty of leisure options too, with a choice of cinemas, theatres and restaurants.
“The mix of properties we’re providing are set to appeal to a variety of prospective buyers, including professionals, families and first-time buyers looking to get onto the property ladder.”
Both Bellway and Ashberry Homes recently retained their five-star rating from the Home Builders Federation, which means that more than 90 per cent of customers would recommend the housebuilder to a friend or family member.
