Coastal homes in Portsmouth attract homebuyers in spades

Recent property trends are revealing an increasing number of buyers are now looking to purchase properties in coastal areas, resulting in a spike in demand for homes in the most popular seaside towns*. A new homes development in Drayton near Portsmouth, NOVO, by developer Dandara is proving popular with homebuyers now able to reserve the quality properties off-plan.

The attractive development, which offers a collection of two, three and four-bedroom family homes, is proving appealing to a range of buyers, including those hoping to benefit from Help to Buy before the current scheme ends in March. Novo is ideal for families with every home offering private gardens, as well as a dedicated play area within the development – as well as being a short distance to the coast.


Ian Beal, Managing Director at Dandara says: “We are really excited to be bringing these new homes at Novo to the market as they tick so many boxes. As well as offering a quality new home in an appealing setting, anyone living here can enjoy close proximity to the coast. With a marked increase in demand from people wanting more outside space, Novo offers that in spades. As a result, the development has launched for sale off-plan and we are pleased to see so much interest in the properties.”

Ian adds: “With the development in such an ideal location, people can really enjoy the lifestyle aspect of living here. Whether it be dining out at Port Solent Marina, indulging in retail therapy at The Gunwharf Quays designer outlet, or visiting the Farlington Marshes Nature Reserve, there really is something for everyone”.

Externally, the new homes have varied storey heights and brick elevations with feature weatherboarding, creating attractive street scenes. Internally, they provide a stylish, light and airy living space, perfect for family life. With high-quality fixtures throughout, the kitchens boast Zanussi appliances, whilst the bathrooms all have ceramic wall tiles and chrome fittings.

For those looking to commute, the motorway is easily accessible with the A3M heading north to Guildford and London. Cosham Station is nearby with regular rail services to Havant and Portsmouth. Direct rail links are also available to Southampton, London Victoria and Waterloo stations. The quality of schools is also a major draw for families looking to buy in the area as Solent Infant Junior School, Springfield Secondary School, South Downs College and Portsmouth University are all within easy reach and have a good reputation.
