THE dream of moving to a larger, more suitable family home can often seem out of reach with the thought of escalating costs.
But brand new homes like those at Redrow's Goetre Uchaf development in North Wales not only look beautiful, they can save you money too.
The award-winning developer is offering a choice of four-bedroom homes in a superb location on the outskirts of Bangor, with prices starting from £316,995.
There are currently three house types available - the Henley, the Balmoral and the Sunningdale - all ideal for growing families or those looking to downsize from an older house into something more modern and manageable.
Redrow homes give a nod to the past with many period-style architectural features. Internally they have all the bright, modern features designed for ease of living.
The Henley is undeniably impressive. With a double garage, two en-suite bedrooms and a 36-foot dining and kitchen area, it is a generously proportioned home with real character. Prices start at £364,995.
The Balmoral boasts large, open plan rooms. The kitchen encompasses a dining area and lounge for those together-times, while a separate lounge/study room provides a perfect peaceful haven. There are four generous-sized bedrooms to provide space for the family – and guests you may have to stay. Priced from £377,995.
The Sunningdale has the perfect balance of shared rooms and personal space as you family gets older and more independent. Open plan areas encourage a homely atmosphere, while a separate lounge and study are ideal when you want some time alone. There is a downstairs utility and cloakroom and a spacious adjoined garage, and two of the bedrooms have en-suites. Prices start at £334,995.
Those who thought they couldn't afford to run a house like this will be pleased to hear that Redrow homes are more energy efficient than older counterparts thanks to the use of high quality insulation materials, low energy boilers and efficient ventilation systems. And all Redrow's homes are fitted with low energy light fittings too.
Latest figures suggest homeowners can save an average of £1,332* per year on energy bills by living in a Redrow home thanks to all these factors.
Jason Newton, sale director for Redrow NW, said: “Our homes have been built with increased airtightness to significantly reduce the amount of heat lost. In fact, the Redrow Homes built in 2015 are 54% better at reducing heat loss than a typical 1970s' homes. The research compares new and old four-bedroom homes so living in one of our detached four-bedroom styles, such as The Sunningdale at Goetre Uchaf, could mean significant savings over the year.”
