House buyers are jumping at the chance to secure properties at a new phase of development in Wolverhampton.

The fifth phase of work at the ever-popular Akron Gate development, built by Persimmon West Midlands, is well underway and the new builds are now on the market.

There are 15 of the phase five houses currently on sale, as well as 21 properties on the Promise House phase of the development at the former Goodyear site.

Richard Sleet, sales advisor at the Stafford Road development, said: “This site has sold consistently well since it was launched two years ago and that continues to be the case.

“We’ve had a real mix of people buying properties here, including singles, families and older people looking to downsize.

“It’s exciting to see phase five underway and we’ve already had a lot of interest.

“Akron Gate is the West Midlands’ flagship development and has transformed a former industrial site into a bustling community.”

Properties at Akron Gate start at £95,950 and Persimmon’s sales advisors are able to offer information on the Government’s Help To Buy scheme, which allows people to purchase their new home with just a five per cent deposit.

Homes available include The Hanbury, a three bedroom semi-detached house, The Bellbrook, a two bedroom apartment with open plan living, dining and kitchen area, and The Bickleigh, a three bedroom, three storey house.

These beautiful new homes are based just outside Wolverhampton city centre with easy travel into the city as well as convenient routes into Birmingham. Access to the M54 motorway is just a short distance away.

The marketing suite at Akron Gate is open five days a week. Call 01902 618 583 for more information.
