Award-winning builders Springbourne Homes are vowing to deliver an “exceptional” new development near Market Bosworth after gaining planning permission for 20 detached dwellings on Bosworth Road.
The new luxury homes are to be built on the 10 acre site of the former Hornsey Rise care home in Wellsborough, which closed in 2012.
The abandoned buildings quickly became a target for arsonists, thieves and fly-tippers with local police and fire services frequently called out to deal with a procession of problems over the last six years.
Now Springbourne’s managing director Adrian Burr has promised to transform the derelict, nightmare site into a dream development to include 21st century designs, cutting edge technology, top class specifications in addition to energy-saving and ecological features.
Adrian said: “For so long this has been a nightmare site with so much anti-social behaviour causing so many problems but now we have the opportunity to change all of that and deliver a dream development.
“It will be our most exciting project to date and I’m really pleased that we can now start turning our exciting plans into reality.
“We have worked hard with our architects and Hinckley and Bosworth Council to create the blueprint for a unique development in an enviable location.
“We will now transform this problem site from a centre for anti-social activity, fly-tipping, arson and vandalism into a showpiece development that will enhance the district.
“We are extremely happy with our contribution to the area so far, but I believe this Wellsborough site will be exceptional, the jewel in the crown. I’m confident this will be Springbourne’s best development yet.”
The Nuneaton-based firm is celebrating its 25th anniversary of building bespoke, new homes across Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Shropshire and has a strong reputation in the locality for the design and quality of its projects.
The company is currently completing a development of 24 houses at their Trout Ponds site in Sheepy Magna which includes five “affordable” homes to help sustain the village’s local identity.
