17 February 2020

Local independent house builder Devonshire Homes has announced that homes at its second Bovey Tracey site will be ready to reserve from March 2020.

Longston Cross will offer a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom properties, plus an affordable homes contribution, located on the edge of Bovey Tracey on Challabrook Lane. The new site comes after Devonshire Homes experienced sell-out success at its first Bovey Tracey site, The Tors.

Details on the first phase of new homes, including floor plans and prices, will be released in March with the show home set to open in the summer. Longston Cross will include properties for all types of buyers from first time buyers, families, investors and those looking to ‘rightsize’ and move down the property ladder. Both the Devonshire Move and Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme will be available to use.

As part of the planning permission and under the S106, various contributions are to be made which include £75,382 towards education and a £300 voucher per household towards sustainable travel. Under Section 113 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, £2,440,113 is to be paid.

Jane Pearce, Joint Managing Director at Devonshire Homes, commented:

“We’re delighted to announce that the new homes at Longston Cross, Bovey Tracey, will be available to reserve from March 2020. Following the success of our previous Bovey Tracey site, The Tors, we look forward to delivering more high-quality homes that are stylish, practical and sympathetic to their local environment.”

Jane continued: “I encourage house hunters to register their interest with us now. You will be kept updated on the progress of the site, ensuring that you can be one of the first to reserve your ideal plot. You will also be the first to know when the show home will be opening its doors. We look forward to hearing from you soon!”
