£7m rural residential scheme set for Shropshire

A £7m residential scheme is set to launch in the rural Shropshire town of Minsterley.

Kendrick Homes has broken ground on its Laureate Ley development that will offer 24 two, three and four-bed properties.

Work to transform the land should be completed by the early part of next year and will create a new community within an existing one.

Adam Cadman, marketing manager at Kendrick Homes, which was formed in 1880, said: “Laureate Ley is a fantastic opportunity to live in a beautiful village that boasts its own pub, primary school and Minsterley Parish – home of the annual Eisteddfod event.

“On the edge of the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve, purchasers can explore the sprawling Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and be in Shrewsbury in fifteen minutes…enjoying all its bars, restaurants and its unique retail offering.

The developer says it’s keen for Laureate Ley to leave a “positive legacy” on the community and has committed to investing more than £130,000 into local facilities as part of its Section 106 payment.

Prices start from £229,950 for the two-bed properties.
