It has won many accolades for its work including Britain’s Most Admired Company across all industries in 2012 and 2015 as well as Housebuilder of the Year in 2015.

    These homes offer the best of both worlds – traditional architectural style with interiors thoughtfully designed specifically for the modern lifestyle. The variety of house styles are all in keeping with the elegant Regency and Kentish-style architecture that is characteristic of the area, but also provide benefits of low maintenance, a luxury specification throughout and superior energy efficiency. Homes also come with allocated private parking and private outdoor space – features that are high in demand for such a central town location.

    There is a broad choice of property styles to choose from which go from one-bedroom apartments through to six-bedroom homes. Royal Wells Park already has an established community with a thriving mix of residents from young professionals and couples to families and downsizers as it opened in 2014 and looks set to complete in 2019. The development contributes to the excellent educational facilities in the area, home to state-of-the-art primary school, The Wells Free School, which opens this term and provides 168 school places.
