Recently, on a very sunny Saturday, over 70 guests and potential buyers attended the successful opening of the stunning Show Home at Frenches Green, Upton in Dorset. They were not only treated to the top quality, and craftsmanship evident in the homes at this latest Wyatt Homes’ development, but also given the history to how these much needed, and already hugely popular new homes came to be in existence.
“Seventy years after Bob Wyatt (grandfather of Wyatt Homes’ Managing Director, David Wyatt) and Sir Thomas Lees started building homes in Upton, the younger generation have opened Frenches Green, a brand new Wyatt Homes development in the village,” commented Lady Clare Lees who, along with David Wyatt, officially cut the ribbon and opened the new Show Home. "It is a really imaginative and attractive development, and by creating a village green on the parkland with its ancient oak trees, so close to the bird reserve, these really are very special homes,” said Clare.
“Back in the 1950s our family remember Sir Thomas Lees, Bob Wyatt and the Purbeck Planning Officer, Doug Young, meeting up and building whatever Doug Young said was needed,” she added. “They planned roads, chose styles of homes and the 'Wyatt bungalow’ between the Dorchester Road and the bypass is still a real favourite. Tom and Bob always hoped there would be development at Frenches Green. Tom sadly died last year; he would have been so pleased and proud to see these lovely new homes.”
Reflecting on the success of the show home opening event, Annie Huddleston, Sales and Marketing Director of Wyatt Homes said: “It was such a brilliant day, we had lots of great, positive feedback from those who attended, including praise for the quality of the build, the layout of the development and the well thought out design of the living spaces.”
“These homes really meet the sought after housing needs of those wishing to stay or upsize in the area. There is a lack of housing in Upton, which has excellent schooling and award-winning recreational facilities nearby, and the fact that we took another four reservations on the day, on top of 80% of the development being sold off-plan already, is living proof,” she adds.
When complete, Frenches Green, which is being created on rural land adjacent to Policeman’s Lane in Upton, will have 70 high quality homes, comprising a mixture of one to five-bedroom traditional style family homes, with apartments incorporated into an interesting barn structure at the rural end of the development.
