Housebuilder prepares to bid farewell to town

After more than six years providing quality homes for people in Bridgnorth, a leading housebuilder is preparing to bid farewell to the town.

Prestige developer Charles Church has a small selection of properties at Kings Court, on Stourbridge Road, and just two homes at Wenlock Rise at Hazeldine Way.

Stephen Cleveley, sales director for Charles Church West Midlands, said: “With each of these sites now drawing to a close it really is the end of an era in Bridgnorth. Both developments have been hugely popular with buyers and we are going to be sad to leave the town.

“We have seen Wenlock Rise evolve over a number of years and it is now becoming a lovely established community.

“Kings Court, on the other hand, has been one of our fastest-selling locations. We only opened here last year and the properties have been snapped up quicker than even we anticipated, meaning we expect to be off site by Christmas.”

At NHBC award-winning Wenlock Rise there are just two three-bedroom semi detached homes available. Each boast a garage, en suite to the master bedroom, open plan dining kitchen and full-length living room.

Kings Court provides the unusual chance to own an apartment in Bridgnorth, offering the best of modern living in an idyllic Shropshire market town for investors, downsizers or first time buyers.

The development currently has two bedroom apartments, as well as a handful of three and four bedroom family houses, with prices starting at just £119,950.

Stephen Cleveley added: “Bridgnorth is one of the most sought-after locations in the county, thanks to its excellent leisure facilities, shopping, schools and proximity to picturesque open countryside.

“We have enjoyed getting to know the town and its people, and will miss being part of such a vibrant community.

“But all good things come to an end and we have some superb offers and assistance packages available for the remaining properties, including the incredibly popular Help To Buy and part exchange schemes to help people who need to sell their existing home.”

Anyone interested in finding out more can visit or call into Kings Court on Stourbridge Road, between 11am and 6pm from Thursday to Monday.
