House hunters have been snapping up homes at a brand-new Devizes community following its launch last weekend.

David Wilson Homes opened the door to its Lay Wood development off Horton Road last weekend and already several homes have been sold.

The launch event allowed visitors to see inside show homes at the new community for the first time and one visitor fell in love with the three-bedroom Hadley show home so much they bought it. Through David Wilson Homes’ show home leaseback scheme buyers can purchase their dream home and lease it back to the housebuilder for a set period, earning rent in the process.

Louise Ware, sales director at David Wilson Homes, said: “We love the Hadley show home so we’re not surprised it’s been snapped up so quickly. Our show home leaseback scheme is proving a popular way for buyers to bag the home they fell in love with, earning rent before they move in.”

Visitors are still able to see inside the Hadley show home, as well as the five bedroom Manning and four bedroom Holden style home.

Louise added: “The beauty of being able to see inside the show homes is that you can get a flavour of what it might be like to live at Lay Wood. Our interior designers have done a fantastic job of creating a homely environment that people can see themselves living in.”

Lay Wood is a brand-new development off Horton Road in Devizes and will feature a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Surrounded by countryside and close to the marina, it has proved particularly popular with families.

Homes at Lay Wood start from £390,000. To make an appointment to visit the show homes visit and search ‘Lay Wood’ or call 0844 5710 385.
