A highly anticipated housing development in Ystradgynlais will be launched this weekend.

Developer Persimmon Homes will launch Maes Y Rhos - a new residential site in the heart of the Breconshire town.

With a total of 42 plots, the site offers a selection of 2, 3, 4, and 5-bedroom homes.

Persimmon says the site will offer a "wide range of beautifully designed homes in sustainable communities, catering to the diverse needs of homebuyers", adding that they will appeal especially to young families and first-time buyers, who otherwise might struggle to get onto the housing ladder locally. 

Anyone interested in a plot can visit Clee Tompkinson Estate Agents in the centre of Ystradgynlais, where potential homebuyers can explore the various home designs available with members of the Persimmon sales team.

The first release at Maes Y Rhos includes 3 and 5-bedroom homes, starting from £279,995.

Maes Y Rhos is being launched in conjunction with another development in Carmarthenshire. Awel Y Mynydd in Pembrey offers two, three, and four-bedroom homes in a development that boasts a total of 100 plots.

Commenting on the two launches, Persimmon West Wales’ Sales Director, Sharon Bouhali, said: "We are thrilled to unveil these two exceptional sites, Awel Y Mynydd and Maes Y Rhos, which offer a range of quality new homes for local people.

"We understand the importance of finding the perfect home, and we believe these developments will provide prospective buyers with a fantastic living experience in desirable locations.

“With a variety of house sizes and prices at both Pembrey and Ystradgynlais, we are confident that there is a home to suit every lifestyle and budget, especially young families and first-time buyers who otherwise might struggle to get onto the housing ladder locally.”

As part of Persimmon’s contribution at Awel Y Mynydd, 20 per cent of the new housing is a low cost option that nominated purchasers can purchase at a discounted value. The housebuilder is also contributing £146,000 to local education services, £50,000 towards local drainage improvements, and provide on-site public open space. 

Similarly, the Maes Y Rhos development in Ystradgynlais will see a contribution of £17,500 towards local play area improvements, enhancing the community's recreational amenities.
