Sara Parker, Regional Sales Director at Bloor Homes South West said: “Our Longforth View development has been extremely popular with buyers since we launched in 2014. We have seen a vast number of local buyers, with 46% of our customers moving from up to five miles away. It is also proving attractive to those looking to relocate to this beautiful part of the world, with 14% of our purchasers having moved from over 100 miles away.

“We are very excited to hear about these latest plans to put Wellington on the map and showcase the amazing local food and drink produced in the county. A number of prospective buyers at Longforth View have mentioned the plans for House of Somerset during their visits to our sales office and show homes.”

Sara continues: “Wellington is an attractive market town, packed with the kind of independent shops that have vanished from many other UK high streets. There is a traditional ironmonger, bakeries, alongside fashion and shoe shops that are independent and distinctive. It’s easy to see why it was named the third best place in Britain to live by The Times!”

The development has newly released homes, suitable for a wide range of buyers, including first-time buyers and those looking to upsize. Longforth View is perfectly positioned within walking distance to the vibrant and quirky high street, with its abundance of independent shops and its own Waitrose. The collection of homes will stand between the River Tone and the beautiful Blackdown Hills, providing some of the best scenery the West Country has to offer.

Sara concludes: “The announcement on the stamp duty holiday saw a spike in interest amongst house buyers, looking to either move onto or up the property ladder. This latest initiative for Wellington has provided yet another reason for house hunters to move to this superb town. We would urge anyone interested in moving to Wellington to visit our Longforth View development.”
