Devon house hunters find out more about contemporary living at Cloakham Lawns

26 June 2018

Cloakham Lawns, AxminsterSince the company began in 1885, Bovis Homes has been evolving its property designs to fit with modern living, and this is continuing over 130 years later, with the local house builder's stylish three-storey homes proving a hit with buyers at its popular new Devon location.

At Bovis Homes' Cloakham Lawns in Axminster, the contemporary properties have been designed for today's lifestyles, but are also carefully crafted to take advantage of the stunning Devon surroundings.

On Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July, the house builder will be opening the doors to its three-storey Haydon – giving home seekers the chance to discover more about the designs and quality on offer at this up-and-coming new part of the community.

“We're excited to be giving house hunters the chance to find out more about our homes this weekend,” says regional marketing manager, Stacey Banfield. “We have a variety of three-storey properties with balconies, large windows and French doors to take in the beautiful countryside views, and spacious open-plan rooms and family areas for socialising.

“This weekend, in addition to our Southwold show home, visitors will be able to look around the four-bedroom Haydon, and for those who reserve at the event, we will be giving away a BBQ, fire pit and patio set on completion – so they can really take advantage of their outdoor space.”

Mary-Ann Swan and her family recently moved into a new home at Cloakham Lawns. She said: “Three-storey living is perfect! We will never move away from this style now we have tried this way of living. There can be several of us in the house all feeling we have our own space – we can make as much noise as we want without disturbing each other, we love it!”

The four-bedroom Haydon has been crafted to suit its stunning Devon surroundings, with a balcony from the sitting room to take in the countryside views, and spacious bright rooms. The three-storey home has an open-plan kitchen and dining area with French doors leading out into the garden. There is an integrated garage which includes a useful storage space. There is also a separate study and utility area, creating an ideal work space away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Meanwhile the second floor has a family bathroom, with the master bedroom boasting an en suite.

“Cloakham Lawns offers a wide selection of properties, each carefully designed for a modern lifestyle, but with features and characteristics to suit all types of buyers,” says Stacey. “It's grown into a wonderful close-knit community, with residents making the most of the green open spaces and footpaths throughout the location.”
