Wem Mill – healthy sales six weeks on

It has been six weeks since the successful launch of Wem Mill, a new scheme of apartments by Guild Homes and so far, interest in the properties has been high, according to the developer.

The development, which offers a brand new collection of 36 one and two bedroom apartments in Wem, set in and around the historical building, launched to great fanfare in September when the Mayor of Wem, Councillor Mandy Meakin, officially opened the site. Since then, house hunters have continued to inundate the site to enquire about the offering at the Mill, leading to a number of reservations – five in fact!

Jeff Guest, managing director of Guild Homes, said: “We have been impressed by the level of interest received at Wem Mill. Although the property market is thought to be having a tough time, our sales here are proving that there are indeed house hunters in a position to buy.

“I believe the interest in our development stems from its unique proposition. After all, where else in the area can you find contemporary apartments set in such a historical site? As such, I am sure we will continue to see healthy interest in Wem Mill leading up to Christmas and into the New Year.”

As well as the stunning conversion, Guild has also created two additional sets of new build apartment blocks providing a further 21 apartments to the MiIl’s 15.

Each apartment in Wem features either an open plan or a separate kitchen and living room, a family bathroom and one or two bedrooms. Completed in a neutral scheme, the new owners will be able to put their own stamp on it from the get go. Residents here will also benefit from car parking space and various communal garden areas to while away the hours in.

Prices at Wem Mill range from £89,950 to £139,995. However, if you are looking to rent a home rather than buy, then Guild can help you here too, as a proportion of the apartments have been set aside as rental properties.

The development is located in the delightful market town of Wem, to the north of Shrewsbury and is surrounded by miles of beautiful open countryside. Commuting to and from the development is easy, as there are a number of ‘A’ roads leading to nearby towns, including Shrewsbury, Telford and further afield. Plus, Wem train station is only a short walk away from where you can be in Shrewsbury or Crewe in 12 and 23 minutes respectively*.

To make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to live in one of these apartments in Wem, visit the sales office, open Fridays, 2pm to 7pm, Saturday, Sunday and Monday 11am to 5pm. Alternatively, call 0800 032 2823 or visit
