Housebuilder Acorn Property Group has acquired land situated at Cricket St Thomas Golf Club in Somerset and intends to build 30 flats overlooking the course.

The company hopes to submit a planning application later this year to replace a current agricultural unit that overlooks the course with 30 energy-efficient one- and two-bedroom apartments expected to appeal to downsizers looking for easy access to amenities in the south west.

The purchase was part of two new sites in Somerset with a development value of £17.15 million.

The other site, located in Congresbury, will see the transformation of a former farm at Brinsea Batch which currently comprises a number of redundant barns and farm buildings.

That new development will offer an exclusive collection of 10 three and four-bedroom houses each featuring various degrees of conversion utilising the existing structures and retaining characterful features.

Robin Squire, regional managing director, said: “We are thrilled to bring new homes to these beautiful areas of Somerset. Our team is dedicated to creating high-quality, sustainable new homes that respect the local character.”

Further acquisitions are set to be announced this summer.

Cricket St Thomas Golf Club, meanwhile, has just opened a new driving range.
