New build development of 19 waterside houses on the site of a former farm in Rudheath, Cheshire.

GDV: £4,630,000

Work commenced on site: July 2018

Site Schedule information:

As of 25th September 2019 the site is approximately 7 weeks behind schedule, primarily due to the inclement weather throughout July and August.  Our contractors will endeavour to claw back as much time as possible throughout the rest of the build as when the site reaches the stage where most of the work is internal the weather has less of an impact on the build.  We are aiming to have work onsite completed by the end of November 2019 and once the site is at a stage where purchasers can move in we will progress sales.

As this stage we do not have a time frame for when we will be able to start repaying investors as this is dependent on sales progressing.

Sales updates:

Marketing of the site continues with a good level of interest – a marketing event was held August 2019 and to date we have had up to 90 sales enquiries.  September 2019 the 2 reservations we had fell through but as of the end of September 2019 we have 1 new reservation on the back of the show home, which is now almost finished. Our sales agents are in negotiations on 3 further plot sales. The show home is build complete and dressing of it is just finishing in order for it be open for viewings by the weekend of 5th/6th October. We hope to see increased activity as a result of the show home opening.
