Local councillors open new Bloor Homes development in Appleton Thorn

Councillors from Warrington Borough Council and Appleton Thorn Parish Council were on hand to officially open a new Bloor Homes development in Appleton Thorn.

Councillor Ryan Bate, Parish Councillor Gerry Palmer and Kevin Macaloon from the Neighbourhood Planning Group cut the ribbon and pronounced the Bloor Homes at Hawthorn Grove development open.

Commenting on the development, Councillor Ryan Bate said: “It is a great honour to formally open Bloor Homes at Hawthorn Grove.

“The development has been thoughtfully planned and designed and will bring a nice new community feeling to the local area.”

Hawthorn Grove is located in the historic village of Appleton Thorn, which is famous for its ‘Bawning of the Thorn’ celebration. The ceremony, which takes place in June, involves decorating the local hawthorn tree, which according to legend grew from a cutting of the Holy Thorn at Glastonbury and which grows directly opposite the Bloor Homes development

The development is a collection of just 71 two, three and four-bedroom homes, including semi-detached, detached and sought-after bungalows.

James Clark, Sales Director at Bloor Homes North West, said: “We were delighted to welcome Councillor Ryan Bate, Parish Councillor Gerry Palmer and Kevin Macaloon to the launch of our show homes here at Hawthorn Grove.

“The development is in the beautiful Cheshire setting with easy access to amenities, offering our buyers the best of both worlds. Homes here are within easy commute of the M56 and M6 motorways, as well as being close to the village primary schools, church and pubs – making it the perfect place to raise a family.

“The houses at Hawthorn Grove have been designed to blend in seamlessly with their surroundings and after listening to feedback from local residents and planning officers, we increased the amount of green space included within the development.

“It is important to us that Bloor Homes makes a positive addition to the Appleton Thorn community and we are really looking forward to welcoming visitors through the showhome doors. 

Bloor Homes is making numerous financial contributions to the village as part of the Section 106 agreement, including more than £450,000 towards primary and secondary school provisions and £57,054 towards improving local health facilities.  

Prospective house hunters will be able to explore the impressive two show homes at the Hawthorn Grove development.

The Hallam is a four-bedroom detached family home designed and crafted for modern living. An impressive kitchen/diner/ family area stretches the entire width of the house.

The upstairs boasts four generously sized bedrooms. Externally this home also benefits from a detached garage and private driveway for two cars.

The Shirley is also a four-bedroom detached family home. An open-plan kitchen/diner with adjoined family area provides the ultimate social space, ideal for family dining and entertaining. Downstairs also benefits from a separate lounge and study.

Homes at the development are available to purchase with Help to Buy.

Bloor Homes is celebrating its 50th anniversary year and was pleased to be awarded five-star builder status recently in the HBF’s annual customer satisfaction survey, with nine out of ten of its customers saying they would recommend the builder to others.
