Families and couples are among the new home owners at Bovis Homes’ Wendelburie Rise location at Stanton Cross – where there have been 85 sales in 11 months.

Bovis Homes colleagues have been celebrating the success of the development, where the first buyers started moving in this May.

Alison Tindle, regional sales and marketing director at Bovis Homes, said: “We are delighted at how well our Wendelburie Rise location is performing.

“To have made 85 sales in under one year shows how good the quality and location of our Bovis Homes properties are in Wellingborough.

“This strong record is also testament to the hard-work and knowledge shown by our wonderful Bovis Homes colleagues at Wendelburie Rise, who have been helping families, couples and individuals to move into their fantastic new homes, as smoothly as possible.”

Bodybuilders and first-time buyers Ricky Richardson and Charlene Menzies recently finished unpacking boxes at their new Bovis Homes property at Wendelburie Rise, when 31-year-old Ricky shocked his other half by proposing.

The pair said the proposal, which Charlene accepted, was the perfect start to their new life at the location, which is the first part of the flagship Stanton Cross development, set to bring £1 billion worth of investment to the area.

Print worker Ricky, from Finedon, said: “Moving into our first home together at Stanton Cross was a monumental moment for us and I wanted to mark that by proposing to Charlene.

“Wendelburie Rise is the perfect location for us as we’re close to both sets of family and our work, plus Stanton Cross is starting to look great.

“There is a real sense of community already, we like our neighbours and we can’t wait for the schools, shops and park, that will all be nearby.”

Stanton Cross is a community that will provide 3,650 new homes, plus industrial, leisure, retail and office space, while delivering around 3,000 new jobs.
