Nineteen new luxury homes near Market Bosworth are on the way as Springbourne Homes develops its spectacular Hornsey Rise site at Wellsborough.
Construction work has already begun on the stunning 10 acre site, which is nestled in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, and an impressive range of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes will go on sale in the New Year.
Springbourne Homes’ Chairman Adrian Burr
Springbourne Homes’ chairman Adrian Burr said: “This is the most exciting and prestigious development we have undertaken in our 25 years as a business.
“It really is a ‘location, location, location’ setting as it’s situated on a hill and surrounded on all sides by beautiful countryside.
“Now we’re ready to create something truly special and deliver a stylish range of top quality homes to match this superb position.
“We have already received a lot of interest in the development because it is in such an enviable position in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside.
“We’re expecting a lot more interest now that we have been given the green light to start building by the council and the houses begin to go up.”
The Hornsey Rise name has been chosen to pay homage to the history of the site as it was originally the setting for the Hornsey Rise Care Home for retired printers, which first opened in 1921.
In another acknowledgement of the heritage of the plot, the original chapel will be restored, refurbished and extended to provide a unique three bedroom dwelling.
A vandalised and desecrated War Memorial, erected in memory of 380 printers who died in World War One, will also be restored and re-sited in a new “Peace Garden” alongside the development.
