200-home scheme set to be built in Leicestershire village

Housebuilder Redrow East Midlands is set to build 203 homes in the Leicestershire village of Hugglescote after it completed a deal to buy a 14.37-acre site.

The development will feature two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, with residents expected to move in next summer.

Martyn Pask, managing director for Redrow Homes East Midlands, said: “We are excited to be announcing our fourth development for the region this year.

“Across the East Midlands we’ve seen a surge in demand from house buyers looking for a slice of country life, wanting homes with gardens, and more flexible space for home offices and gyms.

“Nestled in the village of Hugglescote, with a central green and links to wider open spaces, Hugglescote Grange is also within easy reach of Leicester – offering the perfect mix of rural living, with fantastic commuter links.

“Here at Redrow, we strive to create a thriving community at each of our developments, through building high-quality homes and local amenities. We anticipate that this will be extremely popular with families, both growing and established, and we invite potential buyers to register their interest now to be one of the first to know when plots at this wonderful development are released.”
