The properties will be made up of 147 two, three and four-bedroom houses for private sale and 37 affordable homes for local people through shared ownership or rent.

Bellway has already completed and handed over 20 of the affordable properties and built 60 of the private homes.

Rhodri Davies, Sales Manager for Bellway Wales, said: “These drone shots really give a perspective on just how far we have come with construction on Parc Mawr. You can see this settlement nestling in the landscape as if it has always been there. It’s a neighbourhood and a thriving community already.

“The development is proving very popular because it is such a varied scheme with affordable homes and a range of house sizes and types that appeal to people at different stages of life and with different budgets.

“We are finding that a mix of first-time buyers, families and commuters working in Swansea are finding just what they are looking for here at Parc Mawr.”

To date 60 of the properties are sold and occupied, while a further 13 have been reserved.

Prices at the development currently start from £222,995, and this is for a two-bedroom semi-detached house in the homebuilder’s Charfield house style. There are also three and four-bedroom houses available to reserve.
