A stunning new development of family homes set in the Hampshire countryside will help meet the demand in the area, according to an industry expert.

Odiham High Street Charles Church Thames Valley has been given planning permission for 89 homes in Montfort Place, Odiham. The houses are now available to buy off plan via agent Mackenzie Smith, which has offices across North Hampshire.

Ed Mackenzie Smith, Managing Director of Mackenzie Smith, said the new builds would be a significant boost for people who have been keen on a move to the Georgian village of Odiham but have been faced with a desperate lack of options.

He said: “There has been an acute shortage of second hand property coming onto the market in the area. People have been reluctant to move away and there has been very little property built in Odiham for the last 20 years.

“This development will help to break that cycle and help to meet the very strong demand in the area.” Ed said the houses are of the highest standard – and in the perfect location. “Charles Church is a great name and people know that it stands for quality”.

“Odiham is a lovely Georgian village and there is countryside all around with rolling hills and meadows. Hook and Winchfield train stations are close by and there is good access to junction five of the M3. We are absolutely certain that these properties are going to prove very popular with first time buyers, young professionals and families.”

The development is made up of two, three and four bed homes which will be built in a circular shape. The larger houses will back onto open fields, giving residents fabulous views from their rear windows.

Montfort Place has plenty to offer families with the highly-rated Robert May’s School and Lord Wandsworth College – which boasts Rugby World Cup hero Jonny Wilkinson amongst its alumni – close by.

Basingstoke Canal and Odiham Castle also provide good locations for local walk and days out.

House hunters will be able to take advantage of the Government’s popular Help to Buy initiative. It provides a 20 per cent loan on the term of a mortgage, which is interest and repayment free for the first five years.  Buyers only need a five per cent deposit and it is available across the vast majority of our developments.  It’s for first time and next time buyers and there is no salary cap.
