The whole family could enjoy summer in a new home in Winsford

A summer move to a brand new home in Winsford could be just the ticket for buyers with school-age children.

Redrow has a standout range of three and four-bedroom homes that are ready and waiting to move into at St Johns Wood and the summer holidays could be the ideal time for families to move so children can start a new school in September.

With gardens and lots of green space, the development and the surrounding area provide a host of activities for children and their families to enjoy - as Winsford schoolgirl Issy Duckworth, who also happens to be the face of Redrow’s national marketing campaign, found out on a recent visit to St Johns Wood with some of her friends.

Six-year-old Issy stars in a number of promotional films for Redrow, offering a child’s eye view of its homes, which have aired on Redrow’s own website and broadband TV channel as well as social media and property portals. A pupil at St Joseph’s Primary School, she has also appeared on a number of press and billboard adverts.

There is plenty going on in Winsford over the summer to keep families with children of all ages entertained. As well as the many parks and woodlands that provide perfect spots for walking and picnics there are a number of festivals and events in the town. Among them is the Ice project, which provides community events for children throughout the six weeks summer holidays and the Five Rings Circus Festival, based on the Olympics theme.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), commented: “Winsford is a great area for families and, as a local youngster, Issy is the perfect ambassador for us as she portrays the excitement children feel about moving home. But alongside the fun and excitement of moving and discovering a new area, there are some practical issues parents need to think about when choosing when to move.

“People with school-age children often opt to move during the school summer holidays to minimise any disruption to their children’s education. They need to allow themselves plenty of time and I would encourage parents to visit our St Johns Wood development in Winsford now to view our family friendly homes as we have homes that are ready to move into.”

Even those with a property to sell could find they’re able to move sooner than they anticipated thanks to part exchange. With Redrow effectively acting as a cash buyer for the customer’s home, there’s no need to worry about getting caught in a complicated chain and no agent’s fees to pay, making part exchange the smart way to climb the property ladder.

Redrow’s new homes enjoy convivial open plan layouts that maximise the potential of the space available and are great for those with children, as families can spend real quality time together cooking, dining or simply relaxing.

“Kitchens are at the heart of the homes and come with integrated appliances such as oven, hob and fridge freezer – even the microwave is included as standard; while soft closing doors on the cabinets and drawers mean little fingers won’t get trapped. And, thanks to the handy en-suite to master bedroom the morning rush for the family bathroom should be alleviated,” Anita added.

Prices at St Johns Wood start from £161,595 for a three-bedroom home.

Redrow has even teamed up with Issy to produce a special book, Issy’s Moving House Scrapbook, that’s designed to help youngsters aged five to 11 get used to the idea of moving. In it, there’s space for them to add photos, draw pictures, write notes and keep a record of their old friends’ contact details so they don’t lose touch after the move. It also encourages them to think about the reasons for moving and to appreciate all the positives of their new home. The scrapbook is being given free of charge to families who reserve a brand new Redrow home.

The marketing suite and show home at St Johns Wood, which includes a bedroom designed especially with Issy in mind, is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm.
