 Wedgwood Park offers a choice of new build homes in a parkland setting

Set amid acres of parkland, new homes at Wedgwood Park are the natural choice for those who want to explore the great outdoors close to home and could be good for your health too.

Research by scientists from the University of East Anglia has confirmed that spending time outdoors and living closer to nature has ‘significant and wide-ranging health benefits’.

For health-conscious homebuyers it adds further to the appeal of the already popular properties being built by Edenstone Homes at Wedgwood Park.

The name of the development was inspired by John Wedgwood, of the famous potters’ family, who lived there from 1829 to the mid-1830s.

Martin Taylor, managing director for Edenstone Homes, said: “The idea that greenspaces have health benefits isn’t a modern concept but dates back to around the time when the Mansion House at Wedgwood Park was built. In fact John Wedgwood, who lived here in the 1800s was one of the founders of the Royal Horticultural Society.

“By building new homes in what was once the grounds of a private residence, we’re giving more people the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of living close to nature. From the moment visitors arrive at Wedgwood Park they are awestruck by the beauty of the location as the homes are set amid an abundance of open space. They love the idea of being able to explore the extensive parkland, including woodland trails, close to home. With people increasingly looking to improve their wellbeing and become more active, a move to a new home at Wedgwood Park could be part of the answer.”

Bordered by open countryside, on the fringe of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wedgwood Park is a gated community featuring apartments in the Mansion House, plus new build and converted homes. Facilities include a barbecue and picnic area for the exclusive use by residents, plus a Victorian walled garden.

Diaries written by John Wedgwood while living in Abergavenny refer to him trenching a walled garden of more than an acre.

For those who want to follow in John Wedgwood’s footsteps and make Wedgwood Park their home, current availability includes three-bedroom designs from the Lifestyle Collection, well-suited to downsizers, plus four-bedroom family homes.

“Moving to Wedgwood Park is very much a lifestyle choice. The three-bedroom properties are particularly popular with more mature buyers, who want to downsize without comprising on space or location once their children have moved into homes of their own; while the four-bedroom designs are perfect for families,” Martin added.

“Liveability is as important to us as it is to our homeowners and so the properties feature well planned living spaces and generously proportioned bedrooms. Plus, one of the key virtues of purchasing a new build home is that it won’t require costly renovations.”

Prices are from £360,000 for a three-bedroom Earlswood. It has a lounge and a dining room to the front, with breakfast kitchen, utility and cloakroom to the rear. Upstairs are two generously proportioned bedrooms, including master with en-suite, a smaller bedroom that could also be used as a study or hobby room, plus the main bathroom.

Four-bedroom homes are available from £415,000.

Despite the serenity of the location, Abergavenny town centre is easily accessible, with a choice of supermarkets within walking distance.

The show home and sales centre at Wedgwood Park are open daily from 10.30am to 5pm.
