As well as homes, Taylor Wimpey said residents will benefit from a new primary school located at the development as well as children’s play areas, sports pitches, a local centre and “plenty of open space on their doorstep”.

A Taylor Wimpey spokeswoman said: "The Atrium at Overstone will offer a range of contemporary three, four and five-bedroom homes to suit both first-time buyers and growing families.

"Surrounded by green Northamptonshire countryside, Overstone is a picturesque village close to convenient amenities, as well as neighbouring areas such as Northampton which feature an abundance of bars, restaurants and shops.

"Spend your days enjoying the nearby parks and pubs or have a day out at Sywell Country Park exploring its trails and spotting butterflies. At The Atrium at Overstone, you will be able to embrace a truly balanced lifestyle."

Thousands of homes have been given the green light to be built in the Overstone area as part of a 'sustainable urban extension'.
