We return to Mangotsfield with 'the next generation' of our popular wildwood homes

10th August 2018

Work is underway to create brand new homes on the site of Mangotsfield’s former Church of England Infant and Junior Primary School on the junction of Richmond Road and St James Street.

The internal layouts and finishes of the new three-storey three/four-bedroom homes are both attractive and versatile, reflecting the aspirations of today’s modern families,’ says the firm’s head of sales and marketing, Terri Hayes-Pugh.

The South Gloucestershire village north-east of Bristol is popular with commuters keen to swop the city for a home location which, with its open green spaces and mature trees, still retains a village ‘feel.’

The scheme, named Richmond Grove, has been designed by Yate-based housebuilder Cotswold Homes to echo the external appearance of the old-established villas in Richmond Road and as a homage to the previous school building.

‘The internal layouts and finishes of the new three-storey three/four-bedroom homes are both attractive and versatile, reflecting the aspirations of today’s modern families,’ says the firm’s head of sales and marketing, Terri Hayes-Pugh.

She describes them as ‘the next generation of the homes on our popular Wildwood development built nearby on the junction of Blackhorse Road and Westerleigh Road four years ago.’

Planned to maximise the use of space and natural light, the new homes will have open-plan kitchen-dining suites with French windows opening on to ready-turfed and enclosed gardens, each with an external water tap.

The plans show plenty of storage space and at first floor level they feature Juliet balconies.

With a vibrant community on the doorstep and local amenities within a short walk – with more in nearby Downend and Emerson’s Green – Richmond Grove residents will be well-served by public transport; a nearby bus-stop provides access to central Bristol.

Terri expects that the firm’s no-hidden-extras policy and the Government’s Help-to-Buy scheme will play key roles in attracting buyers.
