Bloor Homes has now opened the sales office for the third phase of its sought-after Longforth View development.

Since its launch, the Wellington development has proven to be extremely popular with buyers. This new phase of homes will offer prospective buyers the opportunity to live in rural Somerset.

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. Surprisingly, 14% of our purchasers have moved from over 100 miles away, proving that it is a wonderful place to live.”

Wellington is a fantastic place for people to settle, as it 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. The Times also recently reported that Wellington was the third-best place in Britain to live!

Sara Parker continues: “We are very excited to be launching our third phase of new homes, and we are expecting them to be just as appealing. Our homes are suitable for a wide range of buyers, including first-time buyers, and those looking to upsize.

“Our brand-new showhomes include the four-bedroom Berrington and the four-bedroom Thornsett. The Berrington is a modern four-bedroom family home with a spacious open plan kitchen/dining/family with French doors leading to the rear garden. The Thornsett is another four-bedroom detached family home featuring an impressive double frontage with garage and spacious living throughout. It is perfect for larger families or those who enjoy the extra space.

“The recent announcement on the Stamp Duty holiday saw a spike in interest amongst house buyers, looking to either move onto or up the property ladder. The Stamp Duty holiday will mean significant savings for buyers as the temporary measure will remove tax on the purchase of homes of up to £500,000 - proving it is a great time to buy now.

“If you add to that the fact that Help to Buy is still available for existing homeowners, which has been used by 61% of our purchasers, along with interest rates being currently low, there is a definite cautious confidence in the housing market that we hope to continue.”

Longforth View is perfectly positioned in the bustling country town of Wellington in rural Somerset, within walking distance to the vibrant and quirky high street offering an abundance of independent shops, also home to 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.
