New homes at Ravensbank snapped up off plan

Nine properties on a brand new development by Ravensbury Homes near Bromsgrove have been selling as fast as they were released on to the market by estate agents Nicol & Co.

The Ravensbank development, based by the canalside on Westonhall Road, in the village of Stoke Prior, is the first residential development by Ravensbury Homes.

Bromsgrove-based contractor Tricas Construction is over three-quarters of the way through a 52 week project to deliver five affordable and nine open market properties.

The nine properties, all sold off-plan by Nicol & Co, include a mixture of three and four bedroom homes priced from £350,000 to £575,000.

Jasmine Podmore, new homes sales manager at Nicol & Co, said: “The site had so much to offer with the versatility of the nine properties, there was something for everyone which made the site so popular.

“All of our buyers were local to the area and already registered on our database. We found it was important to keep in touch with them to provide as much information possible before  Ravensbank formally launched.

“We have been able to secure the properties to a range of different buyer types creating what will be a lovely community to live in.”

“Ravensbank includes six different types of lay-out for the nine market-priced homes, and the majority of the units will have bespoke studies designed on the ground floor, providing dedicated spaces that reflect our new hybrid working.”

Matt Nicol, managing director of Nicol & Co, said: “We have been able to work with Ravensbury Homes right from the outset, which has been a tremendous advantage to both parties.

“Our contribution has included consultation on specifications, branding, signage, CGIs, brochures including content, interest register management, phased release, reservations and now sales progression.

“This detailed, meticulous approach has resulted in the nine open market properties selling within a week each time they were released. Our client has always had input throughout and trusted us to deliver.”

“Mike Fletcher, managing director of Ravensbury Homes, has been exceptional to deal with – he has very high standards and clearly takes great pride in the site. The contractors Tricas have also been superb to work alongside.”

Jasmine Podmore added: “Ravensbank is a very distinctive new build site, with its canal location and proximity to the countryside.

“It is also very handily placed with Bromsgrove just three miles away, and Birmingham and Worcester just minutes by rail from the town’s new railway station. The M5 leading into the national motorway network is also very close by.

“The high quality finish, coupled with the buyer’s ability to have some input in the choices has contributed to the undoubted popularity of this scheme.”

Now Ravensbury is on the lookout for its next project and Nicol & Co’s land and new homes department is working closely with them to identify suitable sites.
