Construction underway at luxury development for the over 55s in Exmouth

September 6, 2022 | News

Construction has officially started on a new over 55s development of luxury new homes in Exmouth, by award-winning housebuilder Blue Cedar Homes.

The new development, Orcombe Gardens, will feature a mix of 23 freehold, 2- and 3-bedroom homes each with their own garage, private parking space and private rear gardens. The collection of new homes will also offer a signature summerhouse and landscaped garden for residents to enjoy.

Halsall Construction, the established South West construction firm, are now on site building the homes to Blue Cedar Homes’ high-quality specification and finish.

The new, energy efficient homes at Orcombe Gardens have been carefully designed to effortlessly support homeowners’ lifestyles, drawing on years of experience in creating stylish, spacious and practical homes, and feature flexible interior layouts to meet occupants’ changing future needs. Each property’s private gardens, communal gardens, boundaries, and property exteriors will all be cared for by Blue Cedar Homes’ visiting Estate Manager.

Last week, Andy Corp, Managing Director at Halsall, and Marcus Mason, Senior Site Manager at Halsall, were joined on site with David Millar, Senior Quantity Surveyor and Project Manager at Blue Cedar Homes, and Chris Fayers, Sales and Marketing Director at Blue Cedar Homes to officially break ground and celebrate having the site work commence.

Andy Corp, Managing Director at Halsall said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with Blue Cedar Homes once again following recent construction works on the Company’s 1.8-acre development in central Wedmore. Blue Cedar Homes’ properties are always finished to a very high standard and we’re very much looking forward to seeing the completion of the first home.”

Chris Fayers, Sales and Marketing Director at Blue Cedar Homes said: “We’re delighted to have officially commenced construction on Orcombe Gardens having appointed our lead contractor, Halsall.

Chris continued: “Exmouth is a very attractive, highly sought-after seaside town in the South West. With its vibrant community life and excellent transport links to Exeter, Dartmoor, and various beauty spots around South Devon, we look forward to welcoming future residents to the view our new homes which will help them visualise what an active retirement by the coast could look like.”
