Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties has cause for celebration after successfully launching Abbotswood by Taylor Wimpey, a new development of high quality homes in Romsey.

Over 70 interested house hunters turned up to the launch, eager to find out information on the collection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes that are going to be built at the development.

Due to the high level of interest and demand for the new homes, Taylor Wimpey has released the first five plots for sale earlier than expected, including the detached three bedroom Chichester, four bedroom Thornford, and the stunning five bedroom Winchester.

With prices starting from just £375,000, each of these homes offers stylish and spacious accommodation designed to meet the ever changing needs of today’s home owner.

Sarah Pasco, regional sales director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, said: “As Romsey is a highly sought after area we knew interest in the homes we are going to be building would be strong, but the turnout on launch day exceeded our expectations.

“It clearly demonstrates that there’s a strong appetite in the region from house hunters looking for homes that combine excellent build quality with stylish design and competitive prices, and we’re able to deliver that and more here at Abbotswood.”

The Chichester is a perfect example of the high quality homes buyers can expect at Abbotswood by Taylor Wimpey. The ground floor features a spacious living room, stylish kitchen, separate dining room and useful cloakroom. Upstairs is the master bedroom with ensuite, two further bedrooms, a study and a family bathroom. The home is completed by a private rear garden, single garage and parking space.

The development is ideally located in historic Romsey, close to Southampton and Winchester, and lies on the River Test which is famous for fly fishing. There are a number of fine historic buildings that can be admired, along with a stunning Romanesque Abbey. Built in the 12th and 13th century and once home to Lord Mountbatten of Burma, it dominates the lively town and provides an excellent focal point. There’s also a good selection of high street shops, restaurants and gastro pubs, as well as beautiful parkland to explore.

Commuters will find the location of Abbotswood ideal as Romsey is approximately 10 miles from the M3 and M27 motorways, providing fast links along the south coast and to London and the Midlands. The town benefits from a railway station offering frequent services to Portsmouth and Cardiff via Southampton, Salisbury and Bristol.

The new flagship development, which is being built on Sandy Lane in the town, is part of a consortium being created by Taylor Wimpey, Bellway Homes and Bovis Homes. For further information visit Abbotswood by Taylor Wimpey, open Thursday to Monday from 10am – 5pm, or visit
