A housing developer has announced details of its latest development in the county at Market Harborough.

Known as Windsor Gate, the 3.2-acre Miller Homes Midlands site is situated in Lathkill Street in town.

Buyers are now being invited to register their interest in the new development, which will consist of 47 new three and four-bedroom properties.

Paul Walters, the associate director for Miller Homes Midlands, said interest levels are already high.

He added: “We’ve had a great initial response, with a surge of interested parties adding their details to the Windsor Gate database.

“It’s testament to the buoyancy that’s returned to the property market and I know that when we open the doors to the Windsor Gate sales centre later in the summer, we’ll have an influx of visitors.

“It’s an old adage, but location is so important.

“Windsor Gate benefits from a mix of suburban and rural, while also being in the catchment area for some high performing schools and close to all the facilities that Market Harborough and nearby Leicester have to offer.

“This combination makes it a hugely desirable address for those looking to make a move.”

A number of purchase incentives will also be available on properties at Windsor Gate, including Miller’s part exchange programme and the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.

Among the properties soon to be available at the development is the three-bedroom Pushkin-style home, which includes French doors from the kitchen and dining area into the garden, and a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Also available will be the four-bedroom detached Mitford, featuring a bay window and separate utility and study rooms.

Windsor Gate forms part of Miller Homes Midlands’ plans to build more than 450 new homes in the region.

Other developments due to launch later this year include 37 two, three and four-bedroom properties across four acres of land just off Lodge Farm Chase in Ashbourne, and a 55-acre site, three miles from Derby city centre, where 56 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes are being built.

Miller Homes is also behind the new Stretton Glen estate at Great Glen in the Harborough district.

Plans for the next phase of house-building at Stretton Glen were announced in May.

Phase three will include 45 two, three, four and five-bedroom properties.

Among the new homes will be the four-bed detached Wells-style home.

The company has said that Stretton Glen is one of Miller Homes’ most desirable locations in the whole of the East Midlands. One family even camped out in a car park at the site for 17 hours to secure their home on the estate.
