Redrow to build new homes in Leicestershire

With plans to build 180 homes in Leicestershire, Redrow will be boosting the local economy by providing jobs and homes.

The award-winning developer is hoping to build on its success in Earl Shilton, where just one home is yet to be sold, with two new ventures in the county due to launch in early 2012.

Redrow plans to build twelve luxurious homes on a two-acre site off Glenfield Frith Drive in Glenfield; while over in Countesthorpe some 168 homes are planned on a 25-acre parcel of land west of Leicester Road.

Matthew Pratt, managing director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), commented: “By building new homes in Leicestershire we will be making a major contribution to the local economy. The two developments will provide employment for construction workers and will be a welcome addition to the local housing market, offering a stand out range of quality built family homes.

“We know from the success we have seen at Rossendale Gardens in Earl Shilton and at developments across the country that our New Heritage Collection homes are much sought-after. Combing the best of old and new, they are proving popular across the country with buyers who want a home that oozes the character of an older property but is easy to maintain and efficient to run. The homes in Glenfield and Countesthorpe will look traditional from the outside, taking inspiration from the architecture of the Arts and Crafts era; while inside they will be bright, modern and full of family friendly features.”

Set in an established, leafy suburb the 12 detached homes at Glenfield will form an exclusive, intimate development and will feature homes from Redrows’ premium collection.

With the outstanding Hall School, within walking distance of the homes, they’re sure to be popular with those with children. Plus with easy access to the A46 and M1 it’s an area that’s the ideal base for commuters.

Surrounded by green fields on three sides, the proposed Countesthorpe development will enjoy a beautiful village setting yet is close to Leicester city and also within easy reach of the M1.

“At Redrow we take pride in all we do from choosing the locations in which we build, to the standard of craftsmanship and our customer service. Glenfield and Countesthorpe are the perfect settings for our New Heritage Collection and we are confident that the combination of the locations and the high quality we offer as standard will make both developments a success,” Matthew added.

The first homes at Glenfield and at Countesthorpe will be released for sale early in 2012. In the meantime, potential purchasers can take a virtual tour of Redrow’s New Heritage Collection thanks to the extensive video footage available online at
