Live a streamlined life at Abode

Flintshire home-buyers are being encouraged to take a look at a new contemporary style of living perfect for everyone at any stage of life.

Redrow’s Abode range of homes in Buckley features distinctly modern designs for those seeking a different kind of living to the more traditionally styled homes for which the award-winning housebuilder is perhaps best known. And, as visitors have been discovering, there’s a home to suit a range of circumstances.

Situated off Drury Lane, adjacent to Redrow’s Heathlands development, the homes boast highly specified, open-plan living spaces and in-vogue features such as underfloor heating and wetrooms.

Elaine Mounsey, area sales manager for Redrow (NW) said: “The modern features and ground floor layouts are proving very popular with a wide variety of people. Our purchasers have included retired couples, professional singles and couples, and first-time buyers, all drawn in by this very practical and stylish way of living.

“Visitors are impressed by the high specification, spacious bedrooms and wetrooms as well as the versatility of the open plan ground floors. Wherever you are downstairs, you can be at the heart of the action. What’s more, every nook and cranny has been cleverly used with desk space provided in some of the homes, neatly tucked out of the way, and a separate utility space making for a quiet lounge area. Additionally, the availability of Help to Buy Wales makes these homes even more attractive.”

Help to Buy is aimed at those lacking a substantial deposit. All homes under £300,000 qualify for Help to Buy Wales which means they can be purchased with a 5% deposit. Purchasers would then cover the remaining costs with up to a 20% equity loan from the Welsh Government, interest free for five years, and a 75% mortgage from a lender of choice.

For example, the ‘Abode 805’, a three-bedroom home priced at £162,995 can have its initial purchase reduced to £130,396 with a deposit of just £8,150 needed.

Currently available are two, three and four-bedroom homes with prices starting from £139,995 for a two-bedroom mid-terrace property up to £242,995 for a detached four-bedroom home.

Exterior brickwork, render, window styles and doors present an ‘uncluttered’ but very smart façade and there’s the careful consideration and extra design details that Redrow’s renowned for. The specification is on par with Redrow’s other designs, including its Heritage Collection, which will continue to be built alongside the Abode homes at Heathlands.

And there are options to make a new home even more contemporary with extras for the homes including things like outdoor kitchens and high spec, low maintenance AstroTurf and lighting for gardens.

Chester city centre is just 10 miles away, and, based in a semi-rural setting, buyers still have easy access to the shops, entertainment and culture that a major city offers yet be able to return home to a quieter more relaxed environment.

There are also the high street fashion and home furnishing stores at nearby Broughton Retail Park, which is currently undergoing an expansion to include a new 11-screen cinema, choice of restaurants and a new bus hub.
