Jelson’s long-awaited new development in Shepshed is officially open for business this Friday (2nd August) with the arrival of an on-site sales office.


The office will be staffed by Lorna Peacock, who will be available from 11am to 5pm, Friday to Monday to discuss the variety of homes available at this superbly-situated new development on the outskirts of this popular Leicestershire town.


With four-bedroom homes available for September occupation, and two bedroom properties the following month, it’s a great time to take a look at what Jelson can offer the area’s discerning homehunters.


The popular two-bedroom Sandlering is ideal for couples, young families and downsizers, and features a fitted kitchen with fitted single oven and plumbing and electrics for your washing machine, integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher. The spacious living room has a handy storage cupboard and French doors opening on to the garden. Upstairs are two good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom with over-bath shower. The Sanderling is available for October completion on plots 131, 132 and 133 from £184,950.


Larger families will love the four-bedroom choice at Hookhill Reach. Available in September on plot 130 for £319,950, the Swallow has a downstairs cloakroom, front-facing living room and well-sized fitted dining kitchen with French doors to the rear garden. The kitchen includes an AEG single oven and five-burner gas hob, along with plumbing and electrics for your washing machine, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher.


Upstairs are four good sized bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room, plus family bathroom with over-bath shower. There’s a single garage and a car port.


The four-bedroom Wagtail, available for September completion from £374,950 on plots 128 and 129, is a superbly spacious family home. Downstairs there’s a huge living room with French doors to the garden. The dining kitchen also opens onto the garden and has an AEG single oven, combination microwave oven and five-burner gas hob, along with plumbing and electrics for your washing machine, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There’s also a utility room, study and downstairs cloakroom.


Unusually, both the master and second bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, and the family bathroom has a shower over the bath. Two further bedrooms complete the upstairs space, and there’s a double garage too.


A great place to live


Overlooking open countryside, Hookhill Reach is just under six miles from Loughborough, while Shepshed itself offers a great range of independent shops, schools, health and recreational facilities, many of which are within walking distance of Hookhill Reach. Loughborough has an even wider choice of facilities, with a large shopping centre, cinema and leisure centres.


Just off the M1 at Junction 23, Shepshed is perfectly placed for commuting throughout the East Midlands. Rail travel to Leicester, Derby, Nottingham, Peterborough and stations beyond is easy from Loughborough Railway Station; and East Midlands Airport is approximately seven miles away.


The sales office at Hookhill reach opens on Friday 2nd August and will be open from 11am to 5pm every Friday to Monday. It can be found off Tickow Lane, Shepshed, LE12 9BT.
