Taylor Wimpey is putting the environment first at The Meadows – its innovative development of new homes for sale in Telford.

House-hunters seeking energy savings and environmental benefits from their a property in Telford should visit The Meadows, Taylor Wimpey’s innovative new homes at Telford Millennium Village.

State-of-the-art heat-reclamation systems, high-specification cavity wall insulation and double glazing, ultra-efficient white goods and appliances, plus green goodies such as water butts and compost bins all help the eco homes at the popular Shropshire new homes development live up to their name.

Other environmentally friendly features to selected plots among Taylor Wimpey’s Telford properties can include high efficiency water taps, low flush cisterns, shower save systems, gas save systems and intelligent heating timers and thermostats.

But it’s not just the homes that are green at The Meadows – the views are too, with most of these new-build Shropshire properties situated to take advantage of the stunning vistas across open countryside.

Jan Titley, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “People who buy a new home at The Meadows are comfortable in the knowledge that they are having less of an impact on the planet than those who choose to live in ordinary houses in Telford.

“And buyers don’t just get peace of mind when they move to new houses at The Meadows, their bank accounts should also get a boost thanks to lower energy bills resulting from efficient appliances and waste-saving features.”

The Meadows forms part of the wider Telford Millennium Village, an innovative development created in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency and the borough of Telford & Wrekin.

The settlement is designed to be sustainable, ensuring it will include safe places for children to play, a new school, a community centre and fantastic public transport links. Planners were also tasked with giving as much thought to the needs of pedestrians and cyclists, as car-users.

Wildlife habitats and green spaces are protected, which is great news for the resident population of common lizards, bats, badgers and birds.

A desirable range of eco-friendly homes in Telford is available to buy now at The Meadows, including two-bedroom starter homes priced from just £131,995, and four-bedroom family-size houses starting from as little as £169,995.

The Meadows is ideally placed to take advantage of the region’s travel network, with junction 6 of the M54 close by, for quick links to the M6 and M6 Toll to Staffordshire and Birmingham and the A5 for Shrewsbury. Regular direct rail services operate from three stations in the town to Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury, Birmingham New Street and London Marylebone.

The Telford Shopping Centre boasts more than 150 stores including House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer and Debenhams, along with enticing cafes, bars and restaurants, while for entertainment and leisure, Oakengate Theatre, Telford Ice Rink, Telford Ski Centre and a multi-screen cinema are located within easy reach of the development.

There are plenty of opportunities for fun and varied days out for all ages, including Wonderland amusement park within the 450-acre Telford Town Park, as well as Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom, Jungleland indoor play centre and Telford Steam Railway.

Meanwhile, the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge lies just a few miles out of town amid Shropshire’s splendid countryside, while beautiful mid-Wales and Snowdonia National Park are only a short drive away.

Parents will appreciate the abundance of good schools nearby, including the high-performing Thomas Telford School and the innovative £70 million Hadley Learning Community.

The Meadows Sales and Marketing Suite is located off Holyhead Road, Telford, TF1 5BF, and open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
