New homes

‘Taw Wharf’ is the exciting new housing development being built at Anchorwood Bank, which will help create a new neighbourhood set in the heart of Barnstaple. The name references the long maritime history and riverside location of the site. The area was formerly a busy port where a shipbuilding industry of national distinction thrived during the middle of the twentieth century.

The first new homes will be ready for occupation from 2019 and will be a mix of waterside 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom apartments and town houses set within four to five storey buildings, offering stunning views across the Taw estuary and the surrounding countryside.

The housing will be developed in 5 phases over a 4 year period, providing 172 new high quality, contemporary waterfront homes, set within buildings that closely reference the character and materials of the local architecture, the site’s maritime history and its riverside wharf location.

New homes at Anchorwood Bank have been designed by local architects Woodward Smith and will be built by local housing experts North Devon Homes and Pearce Homes.
