Among the first to arrive and place a deposit on their new home were Mr & Mrs Moulson from Aston-on-Trent, who want to move to a Village apartment as soon as the development opens in late summer/autumn 2016.
“We wanted to give people a real flavour for what living at a Richmond village is like,” said Paddy Brice, managing director of Richmond Villages, “and were absolutely delighted by the number of people who attended and those who showed real interest by wanting to secure their new home off-plan on the day!
“This is a superb start, and gives us great confidence that Aston-on-Trent is absolutely the right location for our next and seventh village.”
Richmond Villages had invited those interested in learning about its new development to the event which was held on Saturday 1 November and Sunday 2 November atThe Priest House Hotel, Castle Donington.
