Dorridge Gate

Launch of new homes for Solihull attracts big crowd

Hundreds flocked to the launch of Dorridge Gate, the much anticipated development of new homes for Solihull and Dorridge, from award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson.  

Demand for the homes has been so strong that Crest Nicholson has launched the development early and is now selling the properties off-plan from the Hockley Heath office of John Shepherds estate agents until its sales team can move on site.

More than 350 people turned out at Hogarths Hotel for the official launch event and the first opportunity to reserve one of Dorridge Gate’s 27 exclusive newbuild homes.  Five reservations were taken on the first day of sales alone, with one couple queuing overnight to make sure they didn’t miss out on their favoured plot, and Crest Nicholson is anticipating interest to increase even further once the development’s show home opens early this spring.

Amanda Benjamin, Senior Sales Manager at Crest Nicholson, said: “We’re delighted to have returned to the Solihull area and to once again be helping local people own their dream home.  Dorridge Gate has been specifically designed with the needs of local homebuyers in mind, so we knew it should be popular.  We were absolutely thrilled by the turnout at our launch event and can’t wait to start welcoming people to the development site over the next couple of months.”

Surrounded by beautiful rolling fields yet just a short walk to the centre of Dorridge Village, Dorridge Gate is an exclusive collection of two, three and four bedroom, high quality homes.  Offering the very best of town and country living, resident of Dorridge Gate will also benefit from the proximity pf top rated local schools, including Arden School and College, which is recognised as one of the best comprehensives in the country, as well as easy access to the shops and amenities of Dorridge, Bentley Heath and bustling Birmingham.

One home that is currently available to reserve is the four bedroom Canterbury house with garage.  Ideal for families, this spacious detached house offers a large living room and separate kitchen with spacious dining area leading onto the garden via French Doors.  Upstairs, the master bedroom benefits from a fitted wardrobe and shower en-suite, two further double bedrooms and the fourth bedroom makes for a good sized children’s room, study or playroom.
