Developer Lovell Homes is celebrating being shortlisted in the national First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards 2016 for its stylish Southampton housing development, Mansfield Park.

Lovell’s two-bedroom Grant House apartments at Mansfield Park, off Exford Drive in Harefield, are in the running for the title of Best First Time Buyer Apartment.

Run in conjunction with leading property magazine First Time Buyer, the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards event is the largest of its kind. Celebrating the cream of new homes designed to meet the needs of first-time purchasers and help people on to the housing ladder, the awards will be announced in a ceremony hosted by TV presenter Nicki Chapman at London’s Waldorf Hilton hotel on 22 April.

Lovell Homes has been shortlisted for its stunning contemporary apartments at Mansfield Park which have made it possible for first-time buyers to secure a highly desirable home of their own, at a price they can afford.

“We’re delighted that our Mansfield Park apartments have been shortlisted in these prestigious awards,” says Lovell field sales manager Melanie Richards. “In many ways, they are perfect homes for first-time buyers, offering inspiring design and exceptional build quality in a location less than four miles from the city centre and with easy access to local motorways and public transport. It’s been fantastic to see so many people buying their first home at Mansfield Park.” Lovell is a proud supporter of the Government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme which has helped a significant number of purchasers buy at the development.

Following the initial shortlisting by an expert panel, judging for the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards is now open to the public. Visit to cast your vote for Mansfield Park.

Mansfield Park is a mixed tenure development of one- and two-bedroom apartments and three- and four-bedroom homes for sale through Lovell. With the first phase of new homes nearly sold out, Lovell has just released a new collection of stylish apartments which are part of the development’s second phase. Available from £177,000 (£141,600 with a Help to Buy: Equity Loan), these exciting homes are all two-bedroom properties offering open-plan kitchen, living and dining spaces, tailor-made for entertaining. High-specification appliances include Bosch gas hob and built-in oven fitted as standard, while master bedrooms all offer a built-in wardrobe. The two-bedroom apartments also come with an en-suite to the master bedroom.

With a surprisingly leafy setting, bordering parkland and trees, Mansfield Park is within easy reach of the city centre with its destination shopping facilities and busy night life, while if you’re looking for spectacular countryside, the South Downs National Park is just seven miles away. Transport connections are excellent with Southampton Airport, Swaythling train station and the M27 all within three-and-a-half miles. What’s more, it’s only seven miles to the M3. The development is within easy reach of the city centre.

The Mansfield Park sales and marketing suite and Grant House show apartment are open seven days a week (11am to 5pm on Mondays and 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Sunday) at Exford Drive, Southampton SO18 5DN. Alternatively, visit or download the Lovell Homes app.
