Mayor of Thrapston unviels new show homes at Charter’s Gate


The Mayor of Thrapston, Councillor Craig Wheeler, was recently welcomed to Barratt Homes’ Charter’s Gate development to open the new show homes with a ribbon cutting.

As part of the launch of the two new properties at the Huntingdon Road development, the Leader of the Thrapston Town Council was invited to unveil a plaque marking the official opening.

The Mayor was joined by Adam Knight, Managing Director of Barratt Homes Cambridgeshire, for the cutting of the ribbon and a tour of the furnished properties.

This occasion was also able to provide Councillor Wheeler with an insight into the exciting plans for the growth of Charter’s Gate.

The launch of the show homes has provided Northamptonshire house hunters with an excellent opportunity to picture a completed property at the sought-after development.

Both properties have been expertly designed to reflect the latest interior trends and homebuyers will be provided with welcome inspiration.

Councillor Wheeler said: “It was a pleasure to be invited to open the new Charter’s Gate development here in Thrapston. I was amazed at how much space was available in the show homes and impressed at the size and layouts of both properties.

“I was also pleased to learn how Barratt Homes have used local suppliers and tradesmen to work on site.”

Upon completion, Charter’s Gate will feature an elegant selection of three, four and five bedroom properties, perfectly suited to first-time buyers, families and downsizers alike.

Adam Knight said: “It was a privilege to welcome Councillor Wheeler to our Charter’s Gate development and we’re very pleased he was able to join us for the official launch of the brand new show homes.

“We’re looking forward to seeing our new residents move in over the coming months as they begin to join this growing community in Thrapston.”

Residents will benefit from the best of both worlds at Charter’s Gate with country living and the nearby amenities in a traditional market town.

Lovely villages and green open spaces are close to home, in addition to a variety of independent cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Commuters are well catered for with the A45, A14 and A605 in close proximity, connecting them to nearby towns and cities such as Peterborough, Corby and Huntingdon.

Thrapston maintains a strong sense of community, strengthened by local events such as the annual Charter Fair which features sideshows, stalls and family activities. A monthly farmer’s market also enables residents to stock up on fresh local produce.
