Situated on Silk Mills Lane, on the edge of the village of Staplegrove, Silk Meadows is a stylish development of new homes from award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson.

Just one and a half miles from Somerset’s shopping capital, Taunton, and a short drive from the breath-taking Quantock Hills, Silk Meadows offers an appealing blend of town and country living. With its enticing collection of 67 two, three and four bedroom homes, the development brings together the best in traditional and contemporary design and offers all the modern comfort, efficiency and economical benefits you would expect from a new build home, along with characterful curb appeal that will stand the test of time.

Somerset buyers eager to own their own dream home need look no further as there are currently two stunning house types at Silk Meadows ready for immediate move in.

The three bedroom Huntingdon provides contemporary open-plan living space on the ground floor with French Doors leading onto the garden from the combined living / dining room, and a separate kitchen and WC leading off the entrance hall. Upstairs there are three good size bedrooms complete with en-suite to the main bedroom and separate family bathroom.

For that little bit more space, the four bedroom Maybury house combines kitchen and dining to create a sociable room in which to cook and converse, and has a separate living room with French Doors onto the landscaped rear garden. As with the Huntingdon, the main bedroom in this house benefits from an en-suite shower room and there is a convenient downstairs cloakroom. Both homes come with at least one parking space and the Maybury enjoys its own garage.

Laura Osborne, Senior Sales Manager for Crest Nicholson, said: “Silk Meadows’ close proximity to the shops and leisure facilities in Taunton, as well as the great open spaces of the Quantock Hills, make it the ideal base for a family home. There are also a number of excellent local schools, including Taunton School, and Parkfield Primary and North Town Community Schools which both received outstanding ratings in their last OFSTED inspections. We’re really excited to be offering two such wonderful house styles available for move in straight away.”

Following closely on the heels of Silk Meadows is Crest Nicholson’s eagerly anticipated Firepool Lock. This new and exciting development is situated along the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal and will comprise 240 new homes, including one and two bedroom apartments, two bedroom coach houses and three and four bedroom houses, alongside an exclusive collection of impressive water front villas.
