These three newly-built properties occupy an elevated position on the fringes of the popular town of Somerton, just under two miles from its historic centre.

The development, named Falkland Court, comprises nine luxury homes on the former site of the Somerton Radio Station. The development offers a mix of conversions and new-build properties that are sympathetic to the surroundings and the site’s historical past as a key part of the UK’s maritime communication system.
