A brand new collection of family homes has been officially launched in Wednesbury, Darlaston as Walsall Council joined homebuilder Countryside to unveil Wards Keep, a mixed-tenure development of two, three and four bedroom houses, as well as one bedroom self-contained apartments.
The leader and deputy leader of Walsall Council, Cllr Mike Bird and Cllr Adrian Andrew, joined members of Countryside and Simple Life to praise the launch of the highly anticipated development on Heathfield Lane.
Speaking about the scheme, Leader of Walsall Council, Cllr Mike Bird said: “This is a welcome development. New homes are vital if Walsall’s economy is to grow and support the next generation. This proves that partnership working can make a positive impact in the borough.”
Joe Turner, Development Director at Countryside, added: “Wards Keep is a true partnership scheme with ourselves and Simple Life working collaboratively, with support from Walsall Council, to deliver quality, family-sized housing that’s available to both buy and rent. Since our launch in the West Midlands just two years ago, we’ve gone from strength-to-strength with Wards Keep being one of our largest, mixed tenure developments within the region, to date. Our aim for this scheme is to not only provide opportunities for local residents to get a foot on the housing ladder, but to encourage new families to settle in the area and boost the local economy.”
Graeme Reay, Land Director at Simple Life comments: “We are really proud to be building on our ever-growing partnership with Countryside Properties, particularly in the West Midlands where we have seen such a high demand for our new build rental homes.
“We are pleased to be bringing a new rental experience to this area, offering Simple Life residents total peace of mind from renting from a professional landlord with a 24/7 customer service and maintenance team. We work hard to bring new communities together and Wards Keep will be no exception.”
Of the 207 homes under construction, 109 two, three and four bedroom houses, and one bedroom self-contained apartments, will be available for private rent through Simple Life. The remaining 90 three and four bedroom homes will be available for sale on the open market as freehold, whilst eight of the three bedroom homes will be available through a Shared Ownership initiative.
Homes at Wards Keep come complete with Countryside’s enhanced specification package, which includes a range of stunning extras including integrated kitchen appliances and bathroom suites with Porcelanosa tiling.
Our rental homes are being marketing through local estate agent Redstones: 0345 319 2154.
The sales office and show homes at Wards Keep are open daily from 10am until 5pm at Wards Keep, Heathfield Lane, WS10 8QY.
