Housebuilders active in the Somerset new homes market currently have a superb range of brand new coastal, town and country properties available, scattered right across the county.
House hunters looking for a new home on the Somerset coast, Bloor Homes has created Weston Gateway on the fringes of the Victorian seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare, made up of two- to four-bedroom properties. Priced from 139,960 to 204,950, house buyers here will be able to enjoy the sandy beach at West Bay; stroll along the seafront promenade and Grand Pier; and enjoy the town's shops, sports facilities and entertainment venues. There's a good choice of schools, and for commuters the development is situated just off Junction 21 of the M5 - ideal for trips to Bristol, Taunton and Exeter.
For a quieter coastal spot, Bloor Homes has created Rosewood Farm, situated in the smaller resort of Burnham-on-Sea, home to seven miles of golden sands. Ranging from 239,950 to 244,950, these properties are proving popular with commuters thanks to their handy location near the M5, and with excellent mainline rail services nearby offering direct trains to Cheltenham, Exeter and London. The town itself has excellent local amenities, from schools and leisure centres to shops and a cinema.
There are many developments dotted throughout Somerset that offer fantastic access to picturesque countryside, including new homes near Glastonbury, Frome and Yeovil. The small, quaint town of Glastonbury is surrounded by gorgeous countryside and rural attractions such as the famous Tor. At Taylor Wimpey's Dunstan Park development in Glastonbury, new homes are priced from 144,995 to 249,995, and are nestled in a peaceful, leafy conservation area with its own wetland area and pond. The development is close to excellent nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools and also offers convenient road links.
Located at the eastern end of the gorgeous Mendip Hills, historic Frome's pretty town centre hosts regular farmers' markets and is full of independent shops, popular cafes, and delis selling local produce from the surrounding countryside. The two-, three- and four-bedroom character properties at Bloor Homes' Trinity Park are already selling fast, priced from 117,950 to 199,950. With all of Frome's excellent local amenities nearby, this development also has wonderful countryside on its doorstep, yet is only a short commute from Bristol, Wells, Bath and Glastonbury.
Alternatively, David Wilson Homes has a development called Wyndham Park on the edge of lovely countryside near the town of Yeovil, again offering a wide choice of property sizes and prices from two- to five-bedrooms and priced from 199,950 to 395,000.
Town centre developments in Somerset include Langford Mead from David Wilson Homes. This stunning development of contemporary two- to five-bedroom homes is situated in the lively county town of Taunton, well known for its independent boutiques and high street shops. Taunton is an attractive town with a huge appeal, and Langford Mead benefits from being close to the Park & Ride for easy trips into the centre. Priced from 199,950 to 419,950, there's a good range of homes to suit different budgets.
