Newtown’s town centre riverside area is set to be enhanced with the investment in and development of new housing on an area left derelict in recent years.

Four properties are being built above the River Severn in the Powys town at Severnside, off Frankwell Street, as part of the investment by local businessman Trevor Wheatley.

The homes are being marketed by local estate agents and property surveyors Morris, Marshall and Poole.

The development, being constructed by Gary Thomas, will consist of four executive, four-bedroomed homes, three of which will have river frontages and views to St Mary’s Church.

“This is an important and much sought after development in Newtown, with a prominent location enjoying the views across the river towards St Mary’s and Longbridge in Newtown,” said Andrew Turner, a Partner at Morris, Marshall and Poole.

“The plot had been left untouched for a number of years after an existing property was demolished. The land is being brought back into use with a well designed range of executive and retirement properties and we’re anticipating a lot of interest because of the location.”

The four properties have private access from Frankwell Street, off Commercial Street, and each includes four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, entrance hall, living room with views across the river, kitchen/diner, study, cloakroom and toilet. They will have double-glazed windows and gas central heating.

Each plot will cover 149sq metres, including a garage each.

“We’re worked carefully on the development as this is in a prime location off Newtown town centre with great access, views and an opportunity to live within the town while still retaining privacy combined with some great views,” said Mr Wheatley.

The properties are currently being constructed and have just been placed on the market by Morris, Marshall and Poole, with prices stating at £325,000.
