Rippon brings quality homes back to Leicestershire

Posted on 18th December 2020 in News & Views

Housebuilder Rippon Homes is expanding its reach across the East Midlands as work starts on its first development in Leicestershire for over a decade.

Marquis Gardens will bring 39 of Rippon’s quality homes to the charming village of Old Dalby, 16 of which will be affordable housing.

The mix of three- and four-bedroom detached family homes are perfectly designed for couples, upsizers, downsizers, empty nesters and everyone in between, with modern designs and spacious open plan living areas.

They are ideally located for family life too, with a pre-school and primary school in the village itself and secondary schools and further education colleges found nearby in Melton, Loughborough and Leicester.

The village has its own pub and church community while the village hall is a hub for many social groups to gather; from Scouts to yoga classes, the whole family is catered for.

The bustling market town of Melton Mowbray lies just eight miles away to provide all the essentials for modern living, including the pork pies it is famed for.

Surrounded by peaceful countryside, Old Dalby offers a rural retreat while providing commuters with easy access to Leicester and Nottingham via the A46 and A52. Melton Mowbray provides a rail link west to Birmingham and to Stansted airport, whilst East Midlands airport is only 20 miles away.

Ian Dyke, Managing Director of Rippon Homes said, “With more people rejecting city life, Old Dalby is a lovely area to raise a family in, and we hope to make that more accessible with our mixture of designs and selection of affordable houses.

“Our quality homes are thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of today’s families in terms of aesthetics, layout and space optimisation, with many exceeding the National Space Standards, and so I’d urge anyone interested to register their interest soon as we don’t anticipate these houses to be available for long.”

The development is located at Queensway, Old Dalby, Leicestershire, LE14 3LZ.
