Bosses at Persimmon Homes West Wales say that the builder’s Emily Fields scheme, off Heol Dulais in the Birchgrove area of the city, has been remarkably popular.
Once complete, the development will consist of 148 properties – and already 92 have been sold to eager house hunters.
There are two, three and four bedroom homes available.
Sharon Robinson, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said it is the variety of properties on offer which has helped to make the development a success.
“Emily Fields launched in 2014 and has been a huge hit,” said Sharon.
“Our sales advisers have been rushed off their feet.
“Birchgrove is a great area to live and that obviously has a large part to play in the development’s popularity.
“The vast mix of properties available has also been key. The two bedroom properties have been popular with young professionals and young couples keen to take that first step onto the property ladder.
“The three and four bedroom homes, meanwhile, are perfect for families and those in need of a bit more space.”
More than 80 per cent of the buyers at Emily Fields since the turn of the year have used the Government’s Help to Buy – Wales scheme, which is available to those buying new-build homes.
Under the scheme, the Welsh Government comes forward with an equity loan up to 20 per cent, leaving the buyer needing a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage.
Emily Fields is a short distance from Swansea city centre and close to parks and open green space. There are well-respected schools within walking distance and local amenities close-by.
