Cavanna Homes - Market Quarter

Market Quarter honours Devon town’s ancient history

Nestling in the heart of the beautiful North Devon countryside, Holsworthy has hosted markets which have drawn people to the town for hundreds of years.

Today, its livestock market operates from efficient, modern premises on the edge of town and is one of the most important in the Westcountry. The market’s future was secured when it sold its previous site in the town in 2014.

The former market is now the location for one of award-winning Westcountry builder Cavanna Homes’ latest developments, which has been named Market Quarter to honour the area’s history.

Close to all the amenities the town has to offer, including a weekly pannier market, and yet only a few minutes’ walk from the open countryside, Market Quarter is a development of 91 new homes, ranging from two to four-bedrooms.

As well as being close to the heart of Holsworthy, Market Quarter is less than half an hour from Bude and the north Cornwall coast, and historic Clovelly and North Devon’s miles of golden sands are also close at hand.

Lynn Wardle, Cavanna Homes’ Sales Manager, said: “Market Quarter provides a wide range of homes offering contemporary living in a historic Devon town which is surrounded by glorious countryside.

“Holsworthy really is the best of both worlds, a delightful mix of town and country, with shops and plenty of places to eat and drink offering some wonderful local produce, a leisure centre, Waitrose supermarket, health centre, good schools and a lovely community spirit.”

There is a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes available at Market Quarter, all with dedicated parking and some with their own garages. The properties have been designed to be sympathetic to the local area, and are finished in render and/or brick.

The Raglan-style show home, which is now open, features a spacious living room, a kitchen/dining room with integrated fridge-freezer, and separate utility and WC on the ground floor, with a bathroom and four bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom also has an en-suite.

Depending on the stage of construction, buyers can choose from a selection of kitchen units, and also colour coordinated wall tiles in the bathroom. Homes here also feature PVC-u double-glazed windows, and stylish white sanitaryware with chrome fittings.

For peace of mind, all the new homes here come with a 10-year NHBC warranty as standard, in addition to Cavanna’s renowned two-year customer support package. This package helped Cavanna earn five stars – the top rating – from the Home Builders Federation for four years in a row, meaning that at least nine out of 10 customers would be happy to recommend them to friends and family.

Lynn said: “We take a great deal of pride in our work, and it’s good to know that our customers are as proud of their new homes as we are.”

The show home and marketing suite at Market Quarter are open from Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
