Metis meets the needs of local people with new homes in Stockbridge and Sutton Scotney
Winchester-based Metis Homes is delivering a collection of new homes ranging from apartments to executive family homes in the charming villages of Stockbridge and Sutton Scotney. The award-winning small housebuilder selected these two prime locations for purchasers seeking a balance of suburban and countryside living.
At Old Station Park in Sutton Scotney, a range of buyers have been quick to secure the small collection of apartments, with six of the eight homes available already reserved within a few weeks of launching off-plan.
Occupying the former yard of Sutton Scotney station, originally part of the Great Western Railway network, the one and two-bedroom apartments have proved immensely popular. A collection of three, four and five-bedroom family houses are also due to launch at the development later in the year.
The spacious apartments at Old Station Park boast ample living and storage space, with the final remaining two-bedroom apartment priced at £250,000 offering two bathrooms as well as a large open-plan kitchen and living space. The final one-bedroom apartment priced at £200,000 also features an open-plan kitchen and living space and family bathroom. Both apartments are available with Help to Buy.
At Kents Orchard in Houghton near Stockbridge, which is renowned for its foodie loving high-street, is an exclusive development of just four detached executive homes. Set down a private driveway, the four and five-bedroom characterful houses are established within private grounds bordered by farmland and open fields. Two of the four homes have already been reserved by purchasers attracted to the peaceful setting, which is also a stone’s throw from the River Test. The two remaining four-bedroom homes are priced at £995,000.
Further afield the bustling city centre of Winchester with its mix of delicious dining, sophisticated shopping and country and riverside trails is a short drive away from both Kent’s Orchard and Old Station Park - with Andover, Salisbury and Southampton also within easy reach.
Adam O’Brien, Managing Director of Metis Homes, commented: “Although reasonably close to one another, we’re delivering a real mix of new homes at each development to try and meet the demands of local people. From apartments and family homes at Old Station Park to executive properties at Kents Orchard, they have been a great draw for prospective purchasers, particularly as there are very few new build homes in the local area. There are now only a few homes remaining at each development, which we don’t anticipate will be on the market for long.
“Buying off-plan has many advantages. Depending on the stage of the build, purchasers will be able to secure their preferred plot and potentially pick their ideal fixtures and fittings. I would therefore advise anyone interested in the homes to get in touch with us sooner rather than later to discuss how we can help customise your new home to your exacting specification.”
