A new community is taking shape in Brockworth with the first residents moved in and new homes now on sale.

Bluebell Homes, part of the Edenstone Group, is redeveloping the former aerodrome site off Whittle Square, located just four miles from Gloucester and seven miles from Cheltenham. Known as Trinity Quarter, the scheme will include community facilities more commonly associated with much larger developments as part of the homebuilder’s drive to build thriving, sustainable communities where people will love living now and in the future. 

Contemporary designed three and four-bedroom homes are now on sale off plan and are attracting keen interest from potential purchasers.

Sales director Adele McCoy explained: “The prime location of Trinity Quarter has really captured buyers’ attention as everything they need is on their doorstep including supermarket, gym and coffee shop. It’s also meant that people have been watching the development take shape and wanting to know more, particularly as some of the properties are now occupied. We’ve already built a database of around 200 potential purchasers keen to discover more about our homes and when they’ll be ready to move into. 

“Buyers are being invited to make an appointment with our sales team who’ll be able to guide them through the floor plans and help match them with a home that best suits their lifestyle.”

Trinity Quarter is a 166-home development, with Bluebell Homes selling 56 of those properties. Current prices are from £329,995 for a three-bedroom Alveston, with a four-bedroom Andover townhouse available from £399,995.

The Alveston is within the regional price cap for Help to Buy, meaning first time buyers could use the Government-backed equity loan scheme to make homeownership easier to afford. Using the scheme, buyers would typically need a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is covered by the equity loan, which is interest free for five years.

Alternatively, both home movers and first-time buyers could use Deposit Unlock to  secure either the Alveston or the Andover house types Exclusive to new builds, Deposit Unlock offers the chance to reserve a home with a 5% deposit and 95% mortgage, available from selected lenders.

Homes now on release will be ready to move into by late summer/ early autumn, with a show home due to open around the same time.

“Buying off plan in a development’s early stages, before your home is built can have real advantages,” Adele added.

“There’s usually more choice available early on in terms of the position of the homes and the chance to make design decisions about the interior such as the style of the kitchen or the colour of the bathroom tiles.”

Along with new homes, Trinity Quarter will feature green open spaces and community facilities including bike hire, outdoor gym equipment, play areas and electric car charging points.

It’s the second Gloucestershire site to feature the Edenstone Group’s Bluebell Homes brand and follows on from the success of River View in Lydney, where the final homes have now sold.
