Speed needed to snap up six of the best near Southport

There are times buying a house that you can’t see the wood for the trees, but it’s easy to get a clear picture of the perfect property at The Coppice in Banks, near Southport.

There are three and four-bedroom homes at the Redrow development in the West Lancashire coastal village that’s close to farmland, nature reserves and the Ribble Estuary.

But with only half a dozen properties remaining buyers will have to be quick on their feet to snap up one of Redrow’s stunning six.

“We’ve a long association with Banks so it’s hard to believe this latest development is coming to an end,” says Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire). “The Coppice has so much to offer, from the village setting to the wealth of amenities nearby and, of course, the superb Arts & Crafts homes themselves.

“Buyers have been smitten by the design of the Heritage Collection houses, with their traditional exteriors and period style features combined with spacious and contemporary interiors, plus built-in energy efficiency that truly does make living in and running a new home a joy.

“Now, with the development over 90% sold and only six houses remaining for sale, the rush is on for house-hunters who want to “put wood in th’ole” as some say in Lancashire!”

Of the still-for-sale properties, four are four-bedroom homes and two are three-bedroom styles, with prices starting at £237,995.

Among them is the Stratford from £244,995, with a spacious kitchen and dining area, which will quickly become the hub of the home, ground floor cloakroom and four generous bedrooms, the master of which has en-suite. There’s also the Worcester, a large three-bedroom detached with integral garage and en-suite, from £267,995, which offers an executive home with an affordable house tag.

Whichever buyers chose, incentives like the government-backed Help to Buy scheme are available so purchasers could find they are able to move with just a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage, thanks to an equity-loan of 20% that’s interest-free for five years.

Claire adds: “Banks is something of an undiscovered location for lots of people but it really does have much to offer. It’s close to the extensive marshes of the River Ribble and the National Nature Reserve - a haven for birdwatchers - and watersports and championship golf courses are on the doorstep, or within an easy drive. It’s also ideal for commuters, close as it is to all the amenities of Southport and accessible to Liverpool and Preston. We’re urging home buyers not to leave it too late to discover this hidden gem for themselves.”
