The first homes at Sherford are now complete, marking a monumental milestone in the development of this new Devon community. The Sherford Consortium – the partnership of award winning developers, Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Taylor Wimpey – will unveil two newly completed houses and invite the public to experience life at Sherford for the very first time on Saturday 19th November.
This is a landmark stage in the construction of Sherford, which will see approximately 600 homes built in the first phase, as well as a range of new amenities and commercial buildings. With homes now available to buy, Sherford could welcome its first resident as soon as January.
Designed with family living in mind, house-hunters will be able to tour a four-bedroom and six-bedroom property, both fully styled and furnished. Sales teams will be on hand to provide information on the range of homes set to be available at Sherford, and assist with off-plan sales.
The Sherford Consortium has worked with some of the South West’s finest architects, designers and craftsmen to ensure Sherford residents will benefit from high quality, stunning new homes. On its completion, a total of 5,500 homes will be available at Sherford, with 20% of these dedicated to affordable housing.
