New Exclusive Development In Axminster Released

We announce the release of our new ‘Lea Place’ development in Axminster. This small, and exclusive development of just 13 private new-build homes, is being built in two adjoining cul-de-sacs and due for completion in autumn this year.

A third-generation family-owned company, C G Fry & Son is renowned for its extensive portfolio of quality build ranging from high-end individual houses to major developments.  Best known for the prestigious Poundbury development in Dorchester for The Duchy of Cornwall, all developments are very much design led, with many publicly recognised with high profile Design & Quality awards throughout the South West.

The Devon market town of Axminster is most famous for its carpets, with the original factory opened in 1755 by Thomas Whitty and most recently famous for Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall’s Canteen and Deli.  Nestled a few miles inland from the Jurassic Coast, it is an ideal base for visiting the nearby counties of Somerset and Dorset.

Situated in close proximity to the town-centre with all its great amenities, Lea Place is a unique development of high-quality private dwellings with a mix of detached, semi-detached and mid/end-terrace consisting of three and four-bedroom homes, all with a garage and parking.   

We are releasing the first phase of Lea Place at an opening-launch event being held at the offices of local Estate Agents, Morgan York on Thursday 11th June. 

Shane Morgan – Morgan York Estate Agents said: “C G Fry & Son is an award-winning developer who build energy efficient homes in harmony with the surrounding area.  Lea Place is a unique and delightful, private site and an easy walk of the town-centre via a public footpath.  With a mixture of architectural detail in brick and stone each of the detached houses is completely individual in style.  The lovely cottage-style terraces houses, which C G Fry are famous for, fit perfectly in the local venacular. We will be releasing prices at the open event on the 11th June where visitors can view full site plans and reserve a plot.”

For purchasers who need financial help to purchase their new house, we offer the ‘Help to Buy’ Equity Loan Scheme, which assists first-time buyers and those looking to move up the property ladder to purchase a new-build home. The government-backed initiative was set up to help new and existing home owners to purchase a property with as little as a 5% deposit.  To date the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme has helped around 50,000 people to buy a new home and the majority of sales were to first-time buyers representing 83% of total sales.

Caroline Hill, Head of Sales and Marketing, C G Fry & Son said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be launching the first phase of this delightful and totally private development, which has been eagerly awaited. It’s a fantastic opportunity to buy a new house off-plan and live in a charming Devon town located in unspoilt countryside in the beautiful Axe Valley; an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty.  A great chance also for buyers to take advantage of the ‘Help to Buy Scheme’ to purchase their dream home.”
