Image for Three-year anniversary for Priors Lea, Paulton!

Our Priors Lea location based on the outskirts Paulton, has proved extremely popular with local house buyers since it was launched in December 2012, and is set to generate even more interest with the launch of a new phase of homes to celebrate its third anniversary!

With nearly 100 homes now purchased and occupied, a real community feel has developed at Priors Lea. "One of the key reasons for the popularity of the location has been the atmosphere and position of the village," said South West Sales and Marketing Director Wayne Bennett. "It's a lovely rural community, yet just 10 miles from Bath and 15 from Bristol. This makes it ideal for people commuting to jobs in those cities and enables them to take advantage of the more competitive house prices available in Paulton".

"We've just released our third phase of new homes, offering a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties. These high quality homes boast an all-inclusive specification which includes a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, recessed down lighters, ceramic tiled floors to bathrooms and en suites, towel rails, showers and shower screens over baths, en suites and built in wardrobes to most master bedrooms plus a host of others all included in ... more

Image for Wincanton pupils get an insight into town's growth

The Year 2 pupils at Wincanton Primary School got a close-up look at how their community is evolving when they visited Bovis Homes' new homes location 'The Chase' in the town recently.

Image for Space is just ace for Sophia as she thrives in a new Bovis Home

Accessibility was top of Stephanie and Nicky Banger's wish list when they began their search for a new family home - and a five-bedroom Bovis Home in North Baddesley ticked all the right boxes. 

Their 11-year-old daughter, Sophia, has cerebral palsy, which means the family needed a home that was wheelchair-friendly and that could be fitted with a stair lift to help their growing daughter get upstairs to bed.

"We built our previous home from scratch, the year that Sophia was born," says Stephanie, who also has a 13-year-old son, Harvey. "Although we did everything we could to make it accessible, the way we'd built it meant that we just couldn't have the stair lift or through-floor lift we real... more

Image for House builders put Christmas at the heart of new Devon location

Christmas arrived early for a local school last week, as they teamed up with the consortium of house builders - made up of Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Taylor Wimpey - and contractors YGS Landscapes, to plant Christmas trees in the heart of the new iconic town development of Sherford.

The consortium invited children from neighbouring Yealmpton Primary School to visit the site, where they got their hands dirty planting tree saplings donated by local landscaping firm, YGS. The children were also given an exciting tour of some of the impressive machinery currently working to construct this major new location.

The children planted a variety of different size saplings, which will take a few years to grow and are expected to then be fully grown Christmas trees that primary schools and families can enjoy when they become She... more
