Te upside to downsizing in Abergavenny

Success in St Athan as every home at Barratt’s Tathana’s Court


EMPTY nesters are coming home to roost at Wedgwood Park in Abergavenny where they can enjoy living in spacious new homes set amid acres of parkland. Te exclusive, gated development from Edenstone Homes is proving popular with buyers looking for a property that best suits their changing needs once their children have grown up and flown the parental nest. More than half of the homes have already been sold, including all of the apartments in the Mansion House, an 18th century home that has been sympathetically renovated with both the stained glass windows and main staircase restored to their former glory. Martin Taylor, managing director for Edenstone Homes, said: “At Wedgwood Park we’re very much responding to a social need. Many people looking to downsize once their children have moved out, don’t want to live in a traditional retirement development. Tey want a spacious home, with well-planned living spaces for entertaining and room for the children or grandchildren to stay overnight. Wedgwood Park is perfect as it offers all that and more. Moving here is very much a lifestyle choice and one that enables the more mature buyer to enjoy life to the full. “Feedback from visitors is that being part of a gated community offers a sense of security, which is particularly important for those who love to travel. Tey also appreciate the extensive parkland with beautiful


woodland trails, with a barbecue and picnic area for the exclusive use by residents. Te homes themselves have substantial gardens, but we’re also replanting the Victorian walled garden for homeowners to enjoy.” Current availability at Wedgwood Park includes three- bedroom Earlswood and Gilwern styles with prices from £375,000. Te Earlswood features a lounge and a dining room to the front, with breakfast kitchen, utility and cloakroom to the rear. Upstairs, there are two generously proportioned bedrooms, including master with en suite; plus a smaller bedroom that could also be used as a study or hobby room, plus the main bathroom. In the Gilwern, the open plan kitchen, dining and family room spans the rear of the property. Tere’s a lounge and a sitting room to the front, with a utility and cloakroom completing the ground floor. Upstairs, the master bedroom feature an en suite and dressing room, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining two bedrooms. Located in the Pen-y-Pound area of Abergavenny, Wedgwood Park is close to the town centre and yet bordered by open countryside, on the fringe of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Te show home and sales centre are open daily from 10.30am to 5pm. For more information, call 07387 262 347 or see the website

is now sold Every new home at Barratt Homes’ popular Tathana’s Court development in St Athan is now sold - and a combination of stylish designs and excellent location is being credited for the success. “The level of interest in these new homes has been tremendous,” said sales director, Richard Lawson. “Tathana’s Court was a great setting for a beautiful range of spacious new homes. There’s also a wonderful sense of community. “Our close proximity to all local amenities just minutes away from the Welsh coast has been a real pull for locals and those wishing to move here from further afield, particularly with the move here by Aston Martin. And the range of Barratt properties offers contemporary living in a wonderful setting.” Tathana’s Court residents benefit from a semi-rural setting in the quaint village of St Athan. And with towns such as Barry within easy reach, the development offers the best of both worlds. “I’m not at all surprised by the level of interest we’ve had here,” added Richard. “But all is not lost for those who have missed out. Barratt Homes will be building at Sycamore Chase, in nearby Boverton soon.”

The new development will feature a range of three and four bedroom homes from the five star housebuilder and is due to be launched later this year. For more information about homes at Sycamore Chase, call 0844 811 1866 or visit
