Work Nearing Completion At New Housing Site In Burton Latimer
03 Dec 2020

Construction is underway on the final properties at a new Burton Latimer housing development, where all the homes have now been sold.

Linden Homes, which is part of the newly formed Vistry Group, is providing a total of 203 homes at its Buckby Grange development, off Higham Road, along with public open space and an on-site play area.

Detailed plans for the site were approved in 2015, with the start of construction work following in 2016.

Buckby Grange has been constructed across two phases, with building work now taking place on the last of the 53 homes of the second phase.

The final residents are set to move into their homes at the end of this year, when the site will officially be completed.

The overall development has brought a variety of two and three-bedroom affordable homes to the area for local people, along with a mix of three, four and five-bedroom private homes.

Earlier this year, Vistry Group site manager Piet Cloete secured a nationally acclaimed National House-Building Council (NHBC) Quality Award for his excellence in on-site management at Buckby Grange, overseeing much of the development’s success over the years, which is Piet’s third award since working at the development.

Hannah Dorner, Sales Manager at Linden Homes East Midlands, said: “The success of Buckby Grange has been down to the variety of homes we have been able to provide to buyers at all stages of the property ladder here, combined with the quality of construction, and the well-connected yet rural location of the development.

“It has been wonderful to watch a thriving new community begin to form here, with many residents giving us positive feedback on the quality of the homes.

“To continue to meet the need for new housing in the wider area, we are now progressing works at Ashton Rise, just 15 miles from Burton Latimer, in nearby Market Harborough. The homes here are proving popular among all types of buyers including commuters, as it’s just an hour on the train to London from the town’s railway station.

“I would urge any interested house-hunters who are looking for a home in the area to get in touch with our sales team to find out more.”

Linden Homes is building and selling a final selection of four and five-bedroom homes at Ashton Rise, located off Lubenham Hill in Market Harborough, which are ready to move into before Christmas.
