Word is getting around that Taylor Wimpey's development in Southampton is the place to be for discerning buyers.

  • The collection of brand new homes in Locks Heath, Hampshire, offers a rare opportunity to secure a property close to good local schools and with excellent shopping and leisure facilities right on the doorstep.

    Three and four bedroom houses are currently available to buy at Strawberry Fields from just £268,000, and would-be buyers in Hampshire are being urged to pay a visit to the development to find out what makes this thriving new community so appealing.

    Fiona Creed, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, said: "Interest in our fantastic Strawberry Fields development has been extraordinary and new enquiries are coming in every day.

    "By acting now, home hunters can be among the first to pick their own plot from this wonderful collection at a former strawberry nursery - and make sure someone else doesn't beat them to it."

    The new homes at Strawberry Fields combine living space with design and offer value for money, with a choice of properties to suit a range of purchasers, including families, young professionals, investors and first time buyers.

    The four bedroom Shelford detached property, for example, is priced from £395,000 and has a contemporary fitted kitchen/dining room and living room, both opening through French doors to the private garden, while a study and a handy guest cloakroom complete the groundfloor layout.

    Upstairs, the landing leads to an ensuite master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a main bathroom, while a carport and additional parking can be found outside.

    The Government's new Help to Buy scheme is available at Strawberry Fields, enabling first time buyers and those looking to move on from an existing property to purchase their new home for 80 per cent of its full price, including a deposit as low as 5 per cent.

    Part exchange, meanwhile, sees customers receive the market value of their existing property, based on the average of independent professional valuations. They can then relax in their own home until their new place is ready to move into, safe in the knowledge that Taylor Wimpey is the guaranteed buyer for their current property.

    The new homes at Strawberry Fields enjoy a peaceful cul-de-sac location on the edge of Locks Heath, on a site formerly used for strawberry growing, a key industry in the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    The new homes are nestled between an established residential area and fields leading down to the banks of the tidal River Hamble, with its pretty marinas and tranquil shoreline walk along to Southampton Water.

    Within walking distance is the Lockswood Centre, with a host of amenities, including shops, a library, a medical centre and a community centre, while the charming village of Warsash is also close by.

    There is a good choice of schools for children of all ages within easy reach of Strawberry Fields. Locks Heath infant and junior schools are both a short walk away and were both rated 'Outstanding' at their most recent inspections by Ofsted, while Brookfield Community School for secondary age pupils is 'Good' and lies right on the doorstep.

    For commuters, the M27 is just a short drive away, for quick links into Southampton and the M3 for further afield, while nearby Swanwick railway station provides direct services to Southampton, Portsmouth Harbour and London Victoria.
