Strutt & Parker and joint agents Bray Fox Smith have secured
a subject to planning disposal of 3.1 acres at Huntercombe Park,
Taplow, Berkshire by Junction seven of the M4 Motorway between
Slough and Maidenhead for a joint venture between Exton Estates and
Exton Estates and SWIPP purchased Wyeth Laboratories' former
headquarters in January 2011. The disposal of the residential
land with potential for approximately 60 family houses to Taylor
Wimpey marks great progress on the original business plan for the
site. One of the largest names in housebuilding in the
country, Taylor Wimpey has a proven track record in delivering
quality new homes to meet local needs.
Simon Kibblewhite, Head of National Development at Strutt &
Parker commented, "Fifteen competitive bids were received for this
opportunity which demonstrates that despite economic uncertainty,
there remains strong demand for sites capable of delivering family
housing in the home counties with good transport links."
The residential element is one of two phases of redevelopment at
Huntercombe Park which has also recently been granted planning
consent for a 90,000 sqft head quarters office development.
