Cavanna Homes - 6 February 2019

Lord Clinton performed a ribbon-cutting to mark the official opening of Cavanna Homes’ new show home at Alfred’s Gate in the East Devon village of Newton Poppleford, near Sidmouth.

Keith Miller, Managing Director at Cavanna Homes, joined Lord Clinton from Clinton Devon Estates, and members of the project team who have brought the 40 new home development to fruition.

Leigh Rix, Head of Property and Land at Clinton Devon Estates, who attended the opening event said:

The official opening of the show home at Alfred’s Gate is a very proud occasion for us and we are thrilled to see the development coming to life with the great work from Cavanna Homes.

Keith Miller, Managing Director at Cavanna Homes, said:

The response from visitors to our marketing suite and show home at Alfred’s Gate has been overwhelmingly positive, and we’ve already secured six reservations, including an exchanged plot, since opening. Alfred’s Gate is in a great location surrounded by coastline and countryside, and within easy reach of Sidmouth and Exeter. We’re very proud to have worked with Clinton Devon Estates on this project and would encourage anyone looking to move to the area to pop in and visit us.

Also at the event were Charles Fane-Trefusis, the son of Lord Clinton, Malcolm Williams of Harrison-Lavers and Potburys, John Baulch and Paul Osborne of LHC Design who designed the masterplan for the area to reflect best practice in sustainability, Andy Sykes of Cavanna Homes, and Charlotte Buggins of LiveWest, who will provide the affordable housing.

Charlotte Buggins, New Business Manager at LiveWest, who are managing the sale of affordable homes at Alfred’s Gate said:

We are absolutely committed to providing homes in rural areas and helping rural communities to survive and prosper. The 11 affordable rented homes and 5 shared ownership homes at the scheme are part of this commitment and we are looking forward to seeing the first residents move in.

The development will provide a mix of 40 new open market and affordable homes, built in a variety of styles and finishes including brick, timber cladding and render to complement the local surroundings. Prices at Alfred’s Gate start from £291,950.

Alfred’s Gate, near Sidmouth, is close to the A3052 and is twelve miles from Exeter and four miles from the Jurassic Coast. The development is within easy walking distance of a village shop, post office, a pub, tennis club and primary school.

The show home and marketing suite at Alfred’s Gate is open Thursday to Monday from 10am – 5pm. For more information about the collection of new homes, please call the sales advisor on 01395 548016 or visit:
