Berkshire MP Richard Benyon has opened the doors to the very first showhome at Newbury Racecourse’s newest phase of properties, The Chase, in a ribbon-cutting event at the flagship David Wilson Homes development.
The housebuilder is currently crafting a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties at The Chase alongside the iconic racing track as part of its development and the showhome gives visitors the first chance to look at what the homes will be like.
Benyon, recently re-elected MP for Newbury, was joined by David Wilson Homes Southern managing director Paul Crispin as they marked the official opening of the showhome. The event was also attended by the directors at the housebuilder’s division including sales director Rob Allen and development director Ian Blair.
Benyon said: “I was delighted to be able to attend this event and to see the next phase of this exciting development which is providing much-needed quality housing with a good number of affordable homes for families in Newbury.”
Paul Crispin said: “Our flagship Newbury Racecourse development is expanding due to its success with local homebuyers and the recent showhome opening event at The Chase has marked another milestone in our progress here.
“This launch was not just a way of celebrating the new homes that we will be bringing to the area with The Chase, but also to reflect on how successful the housing scheme at Newbury Racecourse has been as a whole.
“We are the only developer to have built homes on an active racecourse and we are pleased to see that the popularity of the site has only increased since we launched our first phase of homes four years ago.
“The prestigious homes at The Chase will offer something different for buyers at Newbury Racecourse and will cater for larger families and upsizers as well as first-time buyers in the area.”
