Birds eye view of The Ridings, West Alvington

Marchand Petit are pleased to report that both sales and construction are progressing well at The Ridings in West Alvington.  This select new development, conveniently situated within the village, enjoys excellent views of Kingsbridge and the surrounding area.

This exclusive development by DCH of only 17 houses is moving rapidly on in terms of construction, with all the roofs completed and work started on finishing the interiors.  For those house hunting, now is a good time to visit and reserve your favourite plot ready for an early 2017 move.

Three properties have been reserved ‘off plan’ already and the range and style of houses available is proving popular with growing families and downsizers alike. The last of the three bedroom semi-detached properties offers a high specification with three well positioned bedrooms, family bathroom plus an en-suite, a fabulous living dining room and a separate kitchen.  It is on the market at £340,00 with a garage and parking.

The four bedroom link attached homes are rather special. Plots 11 and 12 are great examples, comprising four generous bedrooms one en-suite and separate family bathroom with a spacious 21 ft. kitchen family room with separate 21 ft. living room.  A particularly nice feature are the bi-fold doors opening out onto the raised decked area, giving excellent views over the rolling fields around the Kingsbridge estuary.  Prices start at £460,000.  There are a few corner plots with larger detached homes, some with double garages and inviting gardens ideal for children and gardeners looking to create a tranquil haven.     

Andrew Biggs, New Homes Manager of Marchand Petit, was given a tour of the site and all the properties in their various stages of construction and was very impressed with the whole development.  He commented: “The feeling of space and the views at The Ridings make this a desirable place to live and the specification is very well thought out”.  He went on to add that his favourite was Plot 11, the four bedroom detached, as the accommodation is excellent and the spectacular bi-fold doors onto the raised decked terrace provides a great area for entertaining and enjoying the views.
