The Croston development provided four superb semi-detached homes which were finished to a very high standard.

Development Manager, Neil McManus commented “We always knew that this development would be popular as Croston is a sought after location. With 100ft gardens and off road parking these houses were unique in the locality. Despite these exclusive selling points we still provided a higher standard specification than is normal in this size bracket. Each home had bi-fold doors to the rear as standard and was future proofed with internet and HDMI cabling throughout.

The development at Croston has proved a huge success and now the new website is live we are hoping to build on that accomplishment through new development opportunities.”
