New Builds – Three, Four and Five Bedrooms

Written by

Anyone seeking a home in north Shropshire should check out three new builds launched within the Tedsmore Grange development.

Situated in a parkland landscape on the edge of West Felton village, the properties range from the Haughton (a three bedroom bungalow), to the Aston (a four bedroom home) and the Felton (with five bedrooms).

Marketed by Balfours, Head of Sales, Alistair Hilton, comments “This is a fantastic opportunity to tap into phase II of this 35 home development, with properties due to be completed between the end of December this year and March 2018.”

Each is built to exacting standards by Dennis Edwards Homes and each is equipped with spacious living areas. The Haughton provides one en-suite room within its £305,00 guide price. The four bedroom Aston is a two storey home that also has an en-suite bedroom and a single garage within its £285,000 guide price.

The Felton steps up to two en-suites, plus fitted wardrobes throughout. It is equipped with underfloor heating and a log-burning stove; a double garage is also part of the £365,000 package.

Alistair adds: “The Tedsmore homes merit viewing as they have three significant points in their favour; namely, the development which is in a fabulous location benefitting from local village amenities including shops, a village hall and dedicated green open spaces with mature trees. Meanwhile Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Chester are all within easy striking distance, with major cities and airports also very commutable. Thirdly, walk into a Dennis Edwards Home and you are aware of the exacting craftsmanship that has gone into the build and the finish.”
