Five-star housebuilder Lovell has announced the opening of its temporary marketing suite in Acle this weekend, as the team prepare to launch the first six houses which will be ready to move into by the end of the year.

The senior sales executive at St Edmund’s Park is David Methold, who grew up in the market town. David said: “Work on site has only just begun but we aim to have two show homes and a permanent marketing suite open by the end of September.

"Covid restrictions mean we are asking people to make an appointment to visit our temporary suite from July 3, and we’d love to show people the stunning location and the stylish homes that will be available, and discuss the various buying options available.”

David, who grew up in Acle, knows the area well: "It’s a wonderful area for families, with so many amenities and things to do. It has a local, community feel about the place, the schools and town centre are within walking distance, plus it has great rail and bus links.”

There will be 69 properties available on the open market, comprising two, three and four-bedroom houses, plus two and three-bed bungalows, which David  expects will sell fast. “I’m really pleased we have a fair number of bungalows here,” he said. “These always prove popular, with all age ranges, and I expect them to go fast.”
