Easy to manage and efficient to run, they offer homeowners the chance to enjoy living in the style and comfort of a brand new home free without having to spend their time and money on the repairs and renovations and older property is likely to need.
Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), commented: “People often think they like the idea of buying a property that’s in need of lots of modernisation but tend to underestimate how much this would cost. We’ve calculated that installing a new kitchen and bathrooms, redecorating throughout, installing a new heating system, replacing windows and other items in a typical three-bedroom home could easily add up to £30,000.”
Located in York Road, Easingwold, Oaklands offers a choice of three and four-bedroom homes that feature bespoke designs with exteriors that reflect the Georgian architecture of the town. Current prices range from £258,950 to £339,950.
They all boast convivial open plan layouts that put the kitchen at the heart of the home. Those kitchens are well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances including oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer, plus tall cabinets and extra wide drawers.
Bathrooms and en-suites enjoy quality fixtures and fittings, with a tile range exclusive to Redrow.
The standard specification boasts items customers may not normally expect to be included in a new home, such as fitted wardrobes, built-in book shelves, outside lights and under lighting to kitchen units.
“One of the advantages of buying a brand new home is that you can customise is to your own personal taste. Our customers love being able to choose the finish of things such as the kitchen cabinets or bathroom tiles instead of inheriting someone else’s choices,” Patsy added.
“Plus with built-in energy efficient measures such as double glazing and central heating our new homes are around 40% more energy efficient than homes built just 10 years ago. It means householders won’t have to worry about turning up the heating to keep warm this winter and could find they save money on their fuel bills.”
Surrounded by some beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, Easingwold is a popular market town that is rapidly making a name for itself as a ‘food lover’s paradise’, with award winning delis, tearooms and restaurants all found locally.
Just off the main A19, roughly midway between York and Thirsk, Easingwold also offers good commuter access to both places as well as Leeds and Harrogate.
