Walton Homes announces return to the Stafford area

12th April 2017

Walton Homes has announced that work is underway on four new developments in the Stafford area after a 10-year break from building in the town and its surrounding villages.

The developer last built homes in the town in 2006 – when it completed Barbary Grange, a small development of seven four- and five- bedroom family homes including a conversion – and has now purchased four land parcels, obtained planning permission and commenced work at four sites.

The sites are located in Walton On The Hill, Wooton, Haughton and Great Haywood respectively.

Amy Summerton, director of the business, said: “We haven’t launched any developments in Stafford in several years, but we always had the area earmarked for future homes. We had an excellent response to our latest collection of properties in Great Haywood, and we decided at the beginning of the year that with confidence returning to the property sector, the time was ripe to introduce further developments.

“The Haughton development, which will be named Redfern Rise, will comprise of 11 three- and four-bedroom homes accessed from Rectory lane next door to St Giles C of E Primary School. Consisting of eight different house-types, building is well underway with sales set to launch imminently.

Building is also underway on 45 properties at Devereux Grange in Great Haywood, including six bungalows to meet a demand from house-buyers looking to downsize in the area. The business has had an excellent early response, with five early-bird reservations for plots at the site, and six sales to date.

The business has also secured planning permission for Creswell Croft in Wooton, which will be accessed from Wooton Drive in Tillington and overlooks Doxey Marshes.

Further permission has also been sought for seven properties off Milford Road in Walton On the Hill; which is earmarked for a collection of individually designed four-bedroom, high- specification homes – Walton Croft. With one of each house-type available at the site, the development will feature a range of different layouts aimed at different lifestyles and owners.

Amy added: “All of these sites are in attractive, desirable areas and as with all of our developments, the homes we build will be luxurious properties created using local materials to ensure that they’re sympathetic to the surrounding buildings. Based on the response to date at Devereux Grange, we’re anticipating a high demand from people seeking homes in the area and we look forward to marketing the upcoming sites.
