Live the show home dream in Horsforth

House buyers who look longingly at professionally styled show homes can now live the dream themselves.

Redrow has revealed the second show home of its Abode, Horsforth Vale development in Leeds is finally for sale.

And it means a lucky buyer has the opportunity to take up residence in a ready-made home that’s been designed and dressed by experts.

The three-bedroom Abode 1100 is a contemporary looking home from Redrow’s trend-setting Abode Collection and is on the market for £359,950 – with everything included.

“The property is being sold ‘as seen’, so whoever buys it can simply walk in and settle down, taking advantage of features such as its open plan living spaces, underfloor heating and landscaped garden,” says Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire).

The Abode range displays an ‘uncluttered’ but smart façade, along with a chic boutique-style interior design. Inside the 1100, virtually all of the ground floor is open plan and the large master bedroom has its own dressing area with fitted wardrobes, leading through to an en-suite wetroom. Practical features include an integral garage and a handy laundry room and cloakroom/wc downstairs.

Added to that, of course, the show home is filled with stylish furnishings and designer-created finishing touches.

Patsy adds: “Show homes are there to showcase everything that a brand new Redrow homes has to offer and display to customers how their own new home could look. Many house hunters take inspiration from our interior designers and often seek to recreate the looks themselves.

“But with this particular property they don’t have to – the Abode 1100 show home comes complete with everything included, from carpets to curtains, light-fittings to landscaped gardens, even the pictures and mirrors on the walls. It’s perfect for a first time buyer who hasn’t yet accrued their own furniture, an investor, or someone who simply wants to make a totally new start.”

Situated on the edge of Horsforth, close to open countryside, the River Aire and Leeds-Liverpool Canal, the development is about six miles from Leeds city centre and good transport links make the location ideal for commuters. There’s an excellent choice of shops, bars and restaurants in Horsforth itself – an area that was named as one of the best places to live in the UK by the Sunday Times earlier this year.

There is also the option of the Help to Buy scheme, with a government backed equity loan of up to 20% of the property’s value, interest free for five years, and the chance to put down just 5% deposit. It means owning a brand new, beautiful home has never been easier.
