Harper’s Gate set to be a Hampton-in-Arden haven for families

For home buyers looking to “Escape to the Country”, a new development of five outstanding barn conversions on the edge of Hampton-in-Arden is proving highly popular.

Sophie Gwynne, Land and New Homes at selling agent DM & Co. Homes, said the new homes by developers Mill Pool Development Ltd, were “flying out the door”.

Construction at Harpers Gate in Bradnocks Marsh Lane is now well under and already two of the luxury family homes have been reserved.

Sophie said: “Set on the edge of the picturesque village location of Hampton-In-Arden, these five outstanding barn conversions really do offer an opportunity to ‘Escape to the Country’ for those who are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and relocate to a stunning rural location.

“The development is in a gated community within 3.25 acres of communal gardens. Each barn offers high specification features throughout, with sizes ranging from three bedrooms to two £1.1 million plus five bedroom homes.”

She added that the developers would be discussing the finishing touches with purchasers once they had reserved their properties in order to agree how to make the best use of the communal facilities.

“Ideas that are being discussed include a lovely garden with an orchard, a barbecue area, and facilities such as a play area if there is sufficient interest from families buying the properties. It really will be a bespoke development for those that live there.”

The properties are set back from the road behind the secure private gated entrance and offers beautiful countryside walks right on the doorstep. West Midlands Golf Club and popular angling venue Barston Lakes are only a short walk away.

Interest in Harpers Gate has been so strong that DM & Co. Homes is organising an Open Day on Saturday 25 March. Viewings are by appointment only.

Harpers Gate is situated in an exclusive setting on the periphery of the highly regarded village of Hampton-In-Arden which is just 6.5 miles from Solihull town centre.

Sophie added: “Hampton-In-Arden itself is 2.5 miles away and boasts a fantastic High Street offering a diverse selection of independent shops and boutiques. There is a real café culture with restaurants, public houses, eateries and bars a plenty with excellent road and rail links nearby.”

The location is also very handy for Birmingham International Airport and Birmingham International Railway Station which are under six miles and a ten minute drive away. Junction 6 near the NEC gives access to the M42 and the national motorway network.

The developer Mill Pool Developments Ltd is a family run business founded in 1965 which is based in Shirley, Solihull, and has over 50 years’ experience working on a range of residential building projects in Birmingham, Solihull and across the West Midlands.

Harpers Gate is due for completion in July 2023, and will offer five exclusive properties, including two 3 bedroom homes at offers over £525,000 and £600,000, one of which is already reserved.

And a detached four bedroom property at offers over £850,000 and two 5 bedroom, two storey conversions priced at offers over £1.1 million, one of which is reserved, are also under construction.
