The first homes at a new development in Saffron Walden will go on sale this winter.

Bellway Essex will host a digital launch of its Poppy View development in winter ahead of the on-site launch next summer.

Buyers who register their interest in the homes will receive advance notification of when the first properties are to be released onto the market.

A total of 150 homes are being built at the site off Thaxted Road, comprising 90 houses for private sale and 60 affordable homes.

The private homes will feature a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses, while the affordable homes will include four apartments and four bungalows, with 42 properties being available for affordable rent and the remaining 18 through shared ownership.

Jenny Walker, Sales Director at Bellway Essex, said: “The digital launch will give buyers the opportunity to secure their dream home at Poppy View before we open the sales office at the site in the summer next year.

“There has already been a high level of interest in the development, which benefits from an enviable location just a mile from Saffron Walden town centre. We are delivering a range of detached and semi-detached house designs, including both two and three-storey properties, to cater for the varying demands of buyers looking for a new home in this sought-after market town.

“As well the construction of these much-needed new homes, we are also creating a pair of landscaped green areas, plus a children’s play area, to provide an attractive and valuable open space for the enjoyment of residents.

“I would encourage anyone interested in buying a home at Poppy View to contact our sales team to ensure they are kept fully updated on when the first properties will be released onto the market.”

The first residents at Poppy View are expected to move into their new homes in the spring of next year.
