New Homes: Purpose-Built Developments

Coastal chic to vintage village: The south coast offers a vast array of new developments designed to suit any taste

From brand new purpose-built developments to modern conversions of character buildings, Sussex’s innovative construction companies have adapted to suit even the most demanding customer.

Starting with the high specification batchelor pad or luxury couple’s apartment, Worthing has plenty to offer. Symonds and Reading’s Regency Apartments, in the town centre, is within easy distance of the seafront and boasts individually designed kitchens and ensuite bedrooms. Kier Group’s unfinished brand new development, The Waterfront, directly facing the sea, will offer flats as well as houses, ideal for both families and singletons.

Bovis Homes’ town house in Meridian End, Peacehaven has great flexibility and value for money along with easy connections to Brighton and the seaside. Crest Nicholson’s Elmcroft development in Southwick, meanwhile, has just one property left, a well-fitted two bedroom house; it won’t be long until this property is snapped up, so check it out.

For a slower pace of life, Berkeley’s The Orchards in Hassocks combines modern luxury with village living, as does St George’s Park in Ditchling. A modern retirement community, it has a wealth of facilities. Finally,we move to Hove to look at Alpha House, boutique new homes in a converted 19th century printworks. A little different with luxury design, it’s a stone’s throw to the sea.

  1. brighton estate agents Says:

    Im pretty impressed with the housing at Peacehaven, its exavctly the kind of ‘overflow’ for the Brighton & Hove area, great properties, well priced and exactly the type needed for the area. Worth a look for somewhere slightly outside the city but with easy access via road.
