Sigma builds new Simple Life homes to rent in Suffolk

25 Mar 2019

The leading provider of new build homes for the private rental sector, Sigma Capital Group plc, has expanded its portfolio with the launch of 37 build to rent properties, situated just outside Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. These new homes will be taken to market by Sigma’s private rental brand, Simple Life.

Fornham Place forms part of the wider Marham Park development in the area, which will ultimately see hundreds of homes built as part of an eight-year plan.

Fornham Park is made up of spacious two and three-bedroom houses within easy reach of the beautiful countryside, as well as bustling local towns.

Victoria Hurcomb from Sigma said: “We have already built over 1,000 homes to rent across England, with a further 3,000 underway and we are very excited to now be bringing our award winning offering to the first of many sites in the Suffolk area.

“We always strive to create a community feel within our developments and Fornham Place is no exception. A village square will sit at the heart of the site with the anticipation that it will bring the new neighbourhood together as it grows, providing a central location for gatherings and events.”

Sigma’s rental homes are being developed by Countryside, along with several build partners, in the style of a village. It will span across 40 acres of parkland and open space and will include a range of new leisure and recreation spaces. The homes for rent will be built alongside other Countryside homes that will be available for open market sale.

Simple Life homes offer a characterful mixture of designs and a selection of finishes. Many will include open plan living spaces, fitted wardrobe in the master bedroom, a fully fitted kitchen and French windows opening on to a private back garden. Simple Life’s standard specification always aims to go above and beyond the expectations of regular rental properties.

Many Simple Life tenants are already enjoying the flexibility of renting throughout England. Jeanie Logan, Simple Life customer in Greater Manchester comments: 

‘I’m used to rental homes being low-quality, but everything here is high-spec and brand new. We’ve got high-quality integrated appliances and soft grey carpets. We all love it. We no longer have the worry of something costly happening and this has changed our lives. We initially planned to rent for 12 months but we’ve already extended this to three years.’

The homes at Fornham Place will be released in phases over the next year, enhancing the current for sale offering and allowing those who desire to rent the perfect opportunity to be a part of this wonderful new community.

The overall site backs onto a local primary school and golf club, with a further 20 primary and secondary schools rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ within a three mile radius. The village of Fornham All Saints is just a short walk away, with a village shop, pub and café all within easy reach.
