The Rowans, Plymstock


Development of 28 Properties

Named the Rowans and located off Horn Lane in Plymstock, the development features 28 new homes of which 14 are affordable.

Following Downham’s move to Estover in 2012, the school was subsequently demolished and the 0.54 ha site was released by the Council for housing as part of an on-going strategy to provide new, good quality and energy efficient homes for Plymouth.

The Council received a large number of offers for the site but in 2014, ethical housing developer and landlord Aster Group’s plan for the development was accepted.

Two and three bedroom new homes (two apartments and one terraced home) for sale through shared ownership from as little as £69,000 based on a 40 per cent share. Or the very last three-bedroom home from only £284,950.

The final 4-bedroom, detached home – Dartmoor – only £339,950.

Rowans in Plymstock is a very desirable small development of new homes created with all needs in mind. These stylish new properties will bring even more life to an already vibrant community and are proving to be popular amongst first time buyers as well as those looking for their next step on the property ladder. The development is also expected to be increasingly popular amongst families, owing to the range of Ofsted-rated schools in the area.

How Have we created a desirable place to live:

A combination of planting, living screens, hedges, timber fences and stone walls have been used to reinforce definition of public and private realms whilst ensuring that the development has a clear identity within the wider community. The enclosures and built form that are broken up into identifiable clusters enhances and assists in providing its own identity and promotes the establishment of a community and not just a place to live.
