Show home's industrial glamour reflects industrial revolution

13 August 2020

A new build development just a short drive from the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution is proving popular with house hunters from near and far.

Hillside View, at Lawley Village, Telford, is less than five miles from Ironbridge, and the stunning Clayton Corner showhome reflects the area’s history with a design based on contemporary, industrial glamour. Steel furniture and rich, rust coloured accessories give the property an urban chic that appeals perfectly to first-time buyers and young professionals.

The development of three and four-bedroom properties saw many of the new build homes snapped up as soon as they were released for sale.

Sales advisor Isabella Howe said: “Pricing has been a key factor in the popularity of this lovely development. Many house hunters are priced out of the surrounding Shropshire towns and villages but Hillside View is affordable. And with up to 75% of customers using the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme it means they can get so much more for their money.”

Hillside View is the latest phase in the development of Lawley Village which since 2007 has seen a consortium of housebuilders, including Persimmon Homes, deliver thousands of new homes in a new community with its own commercial centre, school and care home.

Isabella added: “Hillside View has one of the best locations in Lawley Village, with fantastic views out across the countryside towards The Wrekin. With great commuter links and within easy reach of the M54, we are close to a retail park and the historic town of Shrewsbury.

“I’ve worked for Persimmon Homes for almost three years now, and the high number of reservations we have enjoyed here at Hillside View are second to none.”

Set in the heart of Shropshire yet close to the bustle of urban life, Lawley offers the best of both worlds. It is close to Ironbridge, on the River Severn, and the world-famous Iron Bridge, while Telford is also nearby offering a host of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.

With 11 different house styles on offer at Hillside View, there is a layout to suit everyone at this contemporary village which is ideal for young professionals and growing families. For day-to-day convenience, Lawley includes a whole host of amenities such as local shops, a supermarket, offices and wonderful green open spaces.

Perfect for families, the local primary school is within walking distance, while Thomas Telford School, a city technology college boasting a ranking of number one in the country for its key stage 4 attainment, is little over a mile away. Further education is provided by Telford College of Arts and Technology, as well as a number of sixth forms.

With its modern amenities, great leisure facilities and excellent commuter links, Lawley is a sought-after place to live.
