The Mayor Of Bideford At The Grange

Bideford Mayor opens The Grange new homes development

16 February 2023

The Mayor of Bideford joined West Country housebuilder Devonshire Homes to celebrate the official opening of its latest North Devon site, The Grange.

Cllr Jude Gubb cut the ceremonial ribbon at Devonshire Homes’ Bideford development off Manteo Way in East-the-Water. Local businesses, key stakeholders, partners, and Devonshire Homes’ Charity of the Year, South West Blood Bikes, were all in attendance at the special reception at which guests had the first opportunity to look around the two brand new show homes.

The launch event gave attendees the perfect opportunity to witness Devonshire Homes’ high-quality build first-hand in addition to finding out more about the range of new homes coming to Bideford and schemes which help local house hunters step on or move up the property ladder.

Construction is well underway at The Grange, off Manteo Way, and Devonshire Homes has already experienced a significant level of interest from home buyers looking to move to Bideford. Ultimately, The Grange will be a collection of 225 new homes with one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes available, some of which will come under Devonshire Homes’ affordable homes contribution.

Councillor Mrs Jude Gubb, Mayor of Bideford, commented: “We are excited about the prospect of having homes for local people, and affordable housing. There will be choices for the people of Bideford.”

Sales Executives Charlotte Varcoe and Alina Hammond are now based on site to assist home buyers, helping them find their next home whilst providing more information on the schemes and incentives available. Those interested in homes at The Grange can look around the two show homes, the three bedroom Bideford house style and the four bedroom Modbury house style.

Jane Pearce, Sales and Marketing Director at Devonshire Homes, commented:

“We were thrilled to welcome the Mayor of Bideford, as well as familiar faces from the area and from our industry, to our launch event at The Grange. The event was the perfect chance for us to showcase the site and give our guests a first look inside the show homes.”

Jane continued: “Bideford is a thriving town close to the North Devon coast and because of this desirable setting, we’ve already received strong levels of interest in our new homes. Our Marketing Suite is open daily, so I’d encourage those interested in living in a high-quality new home to act now. By visiting our Marketing Suite, you will meet our friendly Sales Executives, Charlotte and Alina, and can take a look around our gorgeous show homes.”
