First homes go on sale three months early at popular Rushden development

The first homes at a sought-after new development in Rushden have gone on sale three months earlier than planned.

Davidsons Homes has released a selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties at Sanders Fields onto the market ahead of schedule in response to high demand.

Building work on the 80-home development, off Northampton Road, started in October 2020, and since then the housebuilder has received more than 300 enquiries from potential buyers.

Simon Tyler, Sales Director at Davidsons Homes South Midlands, said: “Since we began work on the homes at Sanders Fields, we have been inundated with enquiries from across Rushden and East Northamptonshire.

“The demand for high-quality new homes in Northamptonshire is far outstripping supply. The rise in home-working means that buyers who may have previously moved closer to London for work are now choosing to stay local. The county has good transport links to the capital while offering better value than many other commuter locations.

“The excellent travel connections and the wide range of shops and restaurants within the town and at Rushden Lakes makes Rushden an extremely desirable place to live. The high levels of interest we have seen at Sanders Fields demonstrates the need for new homes in the area.

“We had planned to release the first homes at Sanders Fields onto the market in May, but due to the exceptional demand, we have decided to make some houses available to purchase from our nearby Diamond Heights development in Irthlingborough.

“Interested buyers can now book an appointment to speak with our sales managers at Diamond Heights either in person or virtually to find out more about the selection of homes available at Sanders Fields.”

Davidsons Homes is building a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Sanders Fields, including four bungalows.

A range of homes are currently available to purchase at the development, with prices from £249,995.

The first homes will be ready to move into at the site this summer.
