A show home for a 60-home development has opened in Yatton, Moorhen Road.

The homes make up Housing 21’s Extra Care scheme, developed in partnership with North Somerset Council and is under construction by Vistry Partnerships and supported by Homes England.

Yatton councillor Steve Bridger was at the unveiling of the site, which will feature a hair salon and cafe.

The homes are designed to promote independent living for over 55s.

Strawberry Gardens’ housing manager, Ann Nunnerley said: “We are delighted to open this fantastic new show home and can’t wait to hear feedback from the community.

“Strawberry Gardens has been built with our residents in mind. The apartments are all fitted out with high-quality kitchens, easily accessible mid-height ovens, raised power points and level-access showers, but they are also really stylish and modern.

“We’re pleased to have guidelines in place which mean we can safely start welcoming people to come and take a look around.”

The show home is cleaned extensively both weekly and after each visit to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Anyone who is experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 has been asked to not visit the show home.

Building work was able to continue, in part, through lockdown which keeps the project on track for an October 2020 completion date.
