THE Edenstone Group is set to build on the sell-out success of its stunning River View development in Gloucestershire with the launch of a second scheme in the county.


River View Garden Village in Lydney has proved hugely popular with homes selling ahead of schedule, thanks to the attractive collection of properties and sustainable lifestyle offered.

The landmark project was the group’s first large-scale development and garden village concept. It was also the first to feature the Bluebell Homes brand, helping the business diversify its product mix and appeal to a broader market segment.

Edenstone Group sales director Adele McCoy explained: “River View has demonstrated the demand for high quality new homes set as part of a sustainable new community where people really love living. The new neighbourhood has fast become a close-knit, involved community, and the facilities we’ve provided – children’s play areas, allotments, bike hire and more – have helped residents get to know one another better, and provided opportunities for a greener, more sustainable lifestyle.

“Residents of River View include first time buyers, families and downsizers – the Bluebell homes have predominately attracted the younger buyers, while older purchasers have opted for the Edenstone phases because of the size of the properties. It has the feel of a neighbourhood that’s formed gradually over time, not just a few years. In fact, it’s proved so popular that even though all of the homes have now sold we’re continuing to receive enquiries from potential purchasers keen to move here.”

Launched in October 2018, River View now comprises 177 homes across the 17.6 acres. It features a mix of two, three and four-bedroom designs, including some bungalows.

Community facilities at River View are perhaps more commonly associated with much larger scale developments, earning the scheme a place on the shortlist for the best community initiative category of the Housebuilder Awards 2020.


With all of the homes at River View now sold, the Edenstone Group have their sights set on a new project – Trinity Quarter in nearby Brockworth.

Work on the 166-home scheme, on the site of the former Brockworth Aerodrome and Gloucestershire Aircraft Company – is well underway.

The first phase of three and four-bedroom homes will soon be released for sale under the Bluebell Homes brand.

Adele added: “We are receiving dozens of enquiries every week from people interested in the homes we’re building at Trinity Quarter. This is in part driven by the convenience of the location – there’s everything buyers need on the doorstep, but also by our growing reputation as a quality homebuilder. Based on the volume of enquiries already received, we’d encourage anyone considering purchasing here to register their interest without delay.”

Homes at Trinity Quarter will enjoy a prime location, next to the retail and leisure facilities of Whittle Square which comprises a food store, shop units, a hotel, leisure and community uses, and more; and the employment opportunities offered within Gloucester Business Park.

The overall scheme will see the Edenstone Group invest £2 million in the creation of green open spaces, and community facilities including bike hire, outdoor gym equipment, play areas and electric car charging facilities.

As well as new homes and community amenities, the company will also provide almost £350,000 towards education and libraries in the area.
