Davidsons Homes | Bradgate Chase, Anstey
Leicestershire-based developer Davidsons Homes has unveiled its new showhome at its Bradgate Chase development in Anstey. Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, said: ““We were very happy with the feedback we have been given by visitors on the house.”

The showhome, a four-bedroom detached Castleton with detached garage, offers what the housebuilder describes as, ‘a well-designed family home with light, versatile living spaces and three sets of French doors leading out onto the patioed area and family garden.’ Davidsons Homes is currently offering a selection of two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom homes at Bradgate Chase.


Springbourne Homes | Hornsey Rise, Market Bosworth
Midlands developer Springbourne Homes has submitted plans for a new £20 million site in Leicestershire. The Warwickshire-based firm is seeking full planning approval for 19 aspirational homes on a 10-acre plot at Bosworth Road, Wellsborough, near Market Bosworth.

Springbourne’s Managing Director Adrian Burr oversaw the demolition and said afterwards: “In some ways it was sad to see this old building come down because there is nearly 100 years of history and heritage attached to it. Demolition is the first step towards transforming this blighted site into a stylish, new development that I believe will be a real boost and asset for the area.” Find out more…
