The grass is rarely greener on the other side of the fence – but Redrow’s new homes in Wrea Green, at the heart of rural Fylde, really are!
The award winning homebuilder prides itself on creating energy-efficient new homes which are better for the environment – and better for the homeowner.
And with colder weather just around the corner, there’s no better time to make the shift to a modern new property to stay warmer – and shave pounds off winter fuel bills.
“Redrow calculated energy-use and costs for three of its house styles: a four-bedroom detached home, a three-bedroom semi-detached and a three-bedroom mid-terrace property,” Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), explains.
“We then compared them with those for equivalent-sized Victorian homes with modern day improvements.”*
The results** showed that a new four-bedroom home could save bill payers around £1,299 a year, while savings in a three-bedroom semi are around £915 and a three-bedroom terrace in the region of £709.
The energy cost savings on a four-bedroom home, therefore, would add an extra £108 to the family purse every month, which could make a welcome contribution to the mortgage repayment or other household bills, buy around two tanks of fuel a month or even add up to an extra family holiday every year.***
And brand new homes at Ricksby Grange
in Wrea Green, Lancashire, are among those which could offer would-be purchasers these potential savings.
Claire adds: “New-build homes are ideal for busy families who don’t want to spend time and money on the kind of repairs and renovations that an older property is likely to need.
“But at this time of year in particular, new-builds come into their own even more as people start to turn on their heating and think about how much they spend on energy bills. Redrow’s homes are packed with features designed to minimise energy use and maximise efficiency, with high quality insulation, double glazing, low-energy boilers and effective ventilation systems, as well as energy efficient lighting, included as standard in all our properties. It could make a huge difference when it comes to family budgeting.”
Homes currently available at the development include the four-bedroom detached Welwyn and Balmoral styles, with prices starting at £339,995.
With a double garage, two en-suite bedrooms and a 36ft long family dining and kitchen area which would become the heart of any family home, the Welwyn guarantees all the luxuries of modern living, combined with practicalities – not least due to its energy efficient performance.
Part of Redrow’s Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection, the homes feature traditional exteriors boasting craftsmanship and style combined with contemporary and stylish interiors. The location of Wrea Green village offers a host of amenities and a strong community spirit, with family pubs, cafes and restaurants. It’s also just a few miles from the popular town of Lytham with all of its amenities.
Transport-wise Wrea Green is only two minutes from the M55, connecting residents to the extensive north west network, in particular the M6, and there is a choice of two train stations within two miles of the village.
And if homebuyers need even more money-saving solutions, the homes at Ricksby Grange can be purchased with Help to Buy
. The Government backed equity loan scheme can reduce the initial price by up to 20% and means homebuyers should only need a 5% deposit.
