WITH changing priorities post-lockdown creating an overwhelming desire to live closer to green surroundings, these new homes in Holt are just the ticket.


After being holed up at home for almost a year, buyers are now looking for somewhere to live that is closer to nature and offers more space both at home and beyond the front door*.


Castle Green, located off Wrexham Road, enjoys a semi-rural location, situated on the edge of the medieval market town of Holt, it is surrounded by lush green countryside. Families can enjoy both its tranquil surroundings and high-quality three and four-bedroom homes by the appropriately named Castle Green Homes.


Castle Green Homes is the new identity of Macbryde Homes following a management buyout and new investment that is set to trigger significant expansion. It was already the chosen marketing name of the Holt venture.


Caryl Russell, sales and marketing director, says: “Our Castle Green development is in a highly sought-after area. With just 24 homes being built, it really is a little pocket of homes in an extremely desirable location.


“Holt is rich in history and home to a fantastic choice of independent shops including a popular deli, plus a farm shop and garden centre that are all within walking distance.”


For families wanting to enjoy the outdoors, Holt has a number of walking and cycling routes that can be enjoyed including the Riverside Circular Trail that takes walkers across the medieval Holt bridge and down along the river bank.


Another factor in Holt’s popularity as a place to live is its proximity to both Wrexham (five miles) and Chester (11 miles). Castle Green is therefore the ideal option for homeowners who want to escape the town or city for a life in the country.


“Wrexham is less than a 10-minute drive away and Chester is just under half an hour so it still makes for an easy commute to work while being able to enjoy a more rural home life,” adds Caryl.


Homes at Castle Green come with the sociable open-plan kitchen and dining spaces so suited to modern living, with some including extra family space in addition to the separate lounge. All homes also have their own private garden.


Amongst them is the Marlow, a three-bedroom semi-detached property that starts from £264,995. Downstairs there is a spacious kitchen and dining area with double doors out into the garden, plus a separate lounge. There is a handy laundry cupboard and cloakroom too.


Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the two further bedrooms are well served by the family bathroom.


Other homes at Castle Green are priced from £299,995 for a three-bedroom detached Evesham up to £434,995 for a four-bedroom detached Sandringham, which boasts two en-suites and an integral double garage.


A sales office is due to open at Castle Green later this year; for the time being potential customers can speak to Castle Green’s sales team on 01745 536677 or visit www.castlegreenhomes.uk/locations/castle-green
