Phase Two of the prestigious development, which comprises the two and three-bed apartments, has now been released.

One new St John’s Mews resident is Pam Samuel, who said: “First of all, I liked the fact that St John’s Mews was not a multi-storey building.
“Also, the location mattered greatly as I wanted to be within walking distance of the city centre.
“I am very happy with my decision to move here. Everyone connected with the building and sale of my apartment has been helpful, friendly and accommodating.”

Paul Brown, director of Caedmon Homes, said: “It is very heart-warming to hear Pam’s comments.
