One of the new house types now available to buy at The Meadows
first homes in the latest phase of St. Modwen Homes' award-winning Locking
Parklands development have now been released for sale – giving househunters the
chance to be the first to view the new plans and make early reservations on
their favourite plots.
experiencing a high level of demand, the new phase, The Meadows, will deliver
58 homes when complete, including two bedroom apartments and two, three and
four bedroom houses. As an added benefit, the properties are some of the first
homes in Weston-super-Mare (and the UK) to be made available under the
Government's Help to Buy scheme, which was announced in this year's Budget.
the equity loan scheme, potential purchasers will be able to buy one of the
brand new homes for just 80 per cent of the listed price, made up of a 75 per
cent mortgage and a five per cent deposit, as the Government will lend up to 20
per cent of the property's value through an equity loan. This means
househunters could secure a brand new three bedroom house for just £134,360 (a
20 per cent reduction on the listed price of £167,950) and will need a deposit
of just £8,397.50.
Simpson, sales and marketing director at St. Modwen Homes, said: "Construction is
now well underway on this latest phase and we are expecting the first house to
be built complete and ready for someone to move in this autumn.
Government's new Help to Buy scheme has the potential to save purchasers
thousands of pounds and we're extremely pleased to have not only launched the
initiative at Locking Parklands, but to have already taken reservations at The
Meadows under the scheme."
Meadows will be the first of St. Modwen Homes' developments in the UK to
showcase eight brand new house designs, including The Elm two bedroom terraced
house which boasts floor to ceiling windows and French doors leading to the
rear garden and The Holly four bedroom semi-detached townhouse which benefits
from a spacious balcony off the master bedroom. Househunters are now able to view
the architect's plans at the marketing suite on Farnborough Road where the
properties are available to purchase off plan.
said: "The Meadows will add a wider mix of properties to the existing portfolio
of homes, ensuring that Locking Parklands continues to grow as a sustainable
community, attracting people on all levels of the property ladder.
new homes are being built to the west of our first phase of housing, The
Parkside, and will offer a range of properties primarily suited to first time
buyers and those looking for their second or third home. Working closely with
our architects, we have ensured that each residential phase offers something
unique to Locking Parklands; The Meadows boasts properties that have a certain
'holiday-home' feel, with pitched roofs, wood render and fenced gardens all
making them stand out in comparison to other new build homes."
family homes are also available for sale in The Woodlands phase, with prices
starting from £219,500 for a three bedroom Maple property. More than 75 per
cent of homes have already been sold off plan in The Woodlands and it is
expected this trend will continue at The Meadows.

Modwen working with the HCA and, when complete, the £400 million mixed use
development will provide a range of community facilities including retail
space, a library and a school – all of which will be with within walking
