Show Homes Launch In Taunton With Live One-To-One Virtual Tours
A new community of 235 new homes in Somerset has just launched for sale, and is offering personalised, one-to-one virtual tours around its brand-new show homes and the wider development.
Nerrols Grange, which is an expansion of the highly popular Northwalls Grange development in Taunton, is being created by Barratt Homes Bristol and David Wilson Homes South West. Surrounded by open space and the Somerset countryside and less than three miles from Taunton, this new community will offer a full range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, as well as a new primary school, which is now open.
Road improvements, including two new pedestrian crossings, new footpaths and bus stops will also be taken forward with almost £600,000 from both us and David Wilson Homes in Section 106 payments. The construction of Nerrols Grange will support over 700 new jobs over the lifetime of the development.
Our new sales centre and show homes are now open by appointment only in line with the government’s official guidance, and with a full range of safety and social distancing procedures in place. However prospective buyers can also book a virtual appointment with a sales adviser for a live, personalised video tour around the show homes and wider development using a specially-mounted smartphone.
As the increased interest in buying new homes continues, many customers are now reserving properties having only toured the site virtually. The live, one-to-one video tours offer people the reassurance and convenience of viewing the new properties from the comfort and safety of their current home and without the need to travel.
In addition, 360 videos of the homes and virtual flythrough tours are also available for each development on the Barratt Homes Bristol and David Wilson Homes websites.
Interest in the new homes at Nerrols Grange is high with almost 2,000 people already registering their interest via the websites.
Last month, interest in buying a Barratt Home or David Wilson Home in the South West was up almost a third (32%) on the same period last year, even through the traditionally quiet pre-Christmas period.
Andrea Pilgrim, sales director at Barratt Homes, Bristol said:
“Nerrols Grange is the latest element of the beautiful Northwalls Grange development – surrounded by the Somerset countryside and within easy reach of Taunton town centre, the railway station and the M5. Whilst the new show homes will also be open for appointments in person, we’re really pleased to also be offering one-to-one, personalised tours via smartphone. Our sales advisers can literally walk people round our stunning show homes and developments, showing them each room, answering questions and giving customers the chance to look at whatever detail they wish, from storage solutions to the view through the window.”
Louise Ware, sales director for Barratt David Wilson Homes South West added:
“Interest in the brand new homes at Nerrols Grange is already really high but people are rightly staying at home and reducing travel as much as possible in line with the current lockdown. So we hope that our new, one to one live video tours will give people the chance to get a feel for these beautiful new homes, designed to meet the needs of a range of buyers from first-time buyers to growing families and people looking to downsize.”
