DM & Co. Homes chosen by Wain Homes to bring 109 homes at The Green to market

Solihull-based DM & Co. Homes has been appointed by Wain Homes to sell  a range of 109 new properties at The Green in Shirley, Solihull.

The news comes after DM & Co. Homes was recently named in the Top 2% of UK estate agents, having been recognised as “Exceptional” in the annual Best Estate Agent Guide Awards at the EA Masters conference in London in both the Sales and Lettings categories.

Work has already started on the six acre site at The Green which is situated on the main A34 Stratford Road commuter route into Birmingham from the M42.

Sophie Gwynne, New Homes sales manager at DM & Co. Homes, said they were already taking off-plan reservations on the first tranche of plots that have been released, with lots of excitement surrounding the new development!

The Green will offer homebuyers a range of properties from four bedroom, family executive-style homes to two and three bedroom properties and a range of affordable apartments and houses.

It is being constructed on the location of what was the ex-Lucas Industries building, known latterly as the TRW Technical Centre, which is a brownfield site.

Wain Homes intends to have the first show home and marketing suite available to view in late January 2024.

Franchesca Detain, sales manager at Wain Homes, said: “Historically, we have concentrated on the regeneration of older areas on sites where we can add value to the local community.

“We aim to provide a wide range of options across the 109 properties, from those seeking a first time home, or seeking to downsize, or looking to move up to a three or four bedroom family home.”

Of the 109 homes, 33 will be 4 bedroom, five will be 3 bedroom, one 2 bedroom and there will be 36 apartments for sale. The remaining 28 plots will be available through a housing association.

Dominic Murphy, managing director of DM & Co. Homes, said: “Wain Group is one of the UK’s largest private residential developers, aiming to enrich areas to make them better spaces for everyone to live.

“We are proud to have been appointed by Wain Homes to act as their sole selling agents in what is an ever popular area of the Birmingham and Solihull conurbation.

“The Green is a creative and innovative project to regenerate a brownfield site and create new, energy efficient and sustainable community for the future.”

Prices will range from £330,000 for the two bedroom home, £390,000-£465,000 for the 3 bedroom properties and £490,000-£530,000 for the four bedroom executive properties. Prices for the apartments are yet to be confirmed.
