Sales rush for new Canton homes

Strong demand continues for landmark Cardiff development, The Mill, Canton, with properties at this stunning riverside community proving irresistible to homebuyers.

The Mill will create a brand-new urban village to the west of Cardiff city centre, transforming the former Arjo Wiggins paper mill site with high-quality houses and apartments.

Having received more than 1,000 enquiries from prospective homebuyers in advance, the Lovell Homes team saw early sales get off to a flying start this spring. Properties were snapped up at the much-anticipated pre-show home launch, with the company bringing forward its next release of homes in response.

Offering one and two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses, The Mill’s homes work brilliantly for buyers ranging from young professionals and families to first-time buyers and downsizers.

“People are thrilled that we’re creating brand-new, freehold homes in such an ideal location, close to the city centre and by the river,” says Lovell Homes regional sales director Julie Bowen. “Buyers love both the look of the homes and the amazing lifestyle offered by this aspirational new community.”

Anyone reserving now at The Mill will benefit from extended options for personalising their home, including the chance to choose from a fantastic selection of fixtures and fittings. A further plus is the availability of the Government-backed Help to Buy Wales Equity Loan scheme on selected homes, allowing purchasers to secure a brand-new property with as little as a five per cent deposit.

The 800 homes under construction at The Mill, Canton, include 358 homes for open market sale by Lovell and 442 homes for rent (which will be managed by Cadwyn Housing Association) for the Tirion Group. The scheme is going ahead with a commercial loan from the Welsh Government and financial backing from the Principality Building Society, and is being developed by the Tirion Group in partnership with Lovell.
