House building has officially started on the new £3m over 55s development of a small collection of luxury new homes in central Wedmore at Holdenhurst, just off Cheddar Road.
The new 1.8-acre Wedmore development, which is named Holden Gardens, will feature a mix of 10 detached, 2- and 3-bedroom homes which are located around a landscaped communal garden and summerhouse. Halsall Construction, the established South West construction firm, are now on site building the homes to Blue Cedar Homes’ high-quality specification and finish.
“Today marks a real milestone in the delivery of our vision for these homes at Wedmore – the creation of an outstanding community which people will want to make their home. The guys on site have made a tremendous start and you can already see the quality of what will soon stand here. We are looking forward to seeing the foundations being laid and then the completion of the first home,” said Paul Lacy, Operations Manager at Halsall.
Designed to cater for an active retirement, the new homes will benefit from a local Estate Manager, who will maintain the communal garden, private gardens, boundaries, and property exteriors. The energy efficient, freehold detached homes will predominantly be two/three-bedroomed with adaptable interiors to meet changing future needs and enable longer independent living. They will also feature a garage, additional parking space and private garden.
At the end of December, Paul Lacy, Operations Manager at Halsall was joined on site with David Millar, Senior Quantity Surveyor and Project Manager at Blue Cedar Homes and Chris Fayers, Director of Sales and Marketing at Blue Cedar Homes to officially break ground and celebrate having the site work commence.
Chris Fayers, Sales and Marketing Director at Blue Cedar Homes, said: “We are delighted to have started work on Holden Gardens. Our lead contractor, Halsall, was appointed following negotiation and it’s exciting to see them bringing our vision for these ten bespoke homes out of the ground.”
Chris continued: “Wedmore is a very charming village, with a vibrant community life and excellent travel connections, typical of the locations our customers love to call home.
“The new properties at Holden Gardens have been carefully designed to reflect and respect their setting and we are already receiving significant levels of interest from those considering a move to an ‘age-appropriate’ property, but also from those helping relatives to plan for later life.”
Blue Cedar Homes was established in 2008 and has completed 24 age-exclusive developments.
