Everyone can feather their nest at The Coppice

It's not just home-buyers finding the location of a popular Redrow Homes development in Lancashire appealing.

Situated as it is, in a rural village close to the extensive marshes of the River Ribble and the National Nature Reserve, new residents at The Coppice on Guinea Hall Lane, Banks, have some rather interesting neighbours, with more to come!

While buyers are busy nesting in their brand new three or four-bedroom homes, families of the feathered sort, such as skylarks, tern and redshank, are using the nearby saltmarshes to build summer nests of their own.

Proving it’s a location for all seasons, from September wild birds such as wigeon, whooper swans and pink-footed geese, from as far afield as Russia and Iceland, will also be making the Ribble Estuary their home.

Meanwhile, The Coppice comprises homes from Redrow’s ever-popular Heritage Collection, with the three-bedroom Letchworth semi and the four-bedroom Stratford and Oxford detached designs currently available. All the homes combine traditional craftsmanship on the outside with stylish, modern design and open plan living on the inside.

Claire Jarvis, Redrow Homes (Lancashire) sales director, said: “The Coppice is a stunning collection in an idyllic location, perfect for lovers of the great outdoors with stunning landscapes, amazing wildlife, watersports and championship golf courses on the doorstep, or within an easy drive. It’s ideal for commuters too, close as it is to all the amenities of Southport and accessible to Liverpool and Preston.

“We are finding that many of our home buyers here are young professionals looking to put down roots or start their family, some having moved back to the area from other parts of the UK. We also have first time buyers, particularly for our three-bedroom properties, who are keen to make The Coppice their lifetime home.

“There really is something for everyone, and making life easier for many buyers is the Help to Buy scheme, which is lending a hand when it comes to making properties more affordable.”

Prices on homes currently available at The Coppice range from £202,995 to £264,995.

Help to Buy allows them to take out a 20% Government equity loan that’s interest free for the first five years, so they can purchase their new home with a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. It means that a three-bedroom Letchworth semi with en-suite and ground floor cloakroom, usual price £202,995, can be bought for an initial outlay of only £162,396
