Family and first time buyer homes launch at The Shires
Redrow is launching a collection of three and four bedroom homes at The Shires, our brand new development in Bulphan, to the west of Basildon. The new homes from the award-winning Heritage Collection will launch on Saturday 30th March.
Our Heritage Collection homes reflect traditional architecture of the 1930s Arts & Crafts movement. Though traditionally styled on the outside, the home’s interiors are spacious and light with increased ceiling heights and generous hallways. Open plan kitchen dining rooms have been designed as the hub of home, featuring beautifully finished and intuitive designs.
The 80 new homes will be surrounded by the open Essex countryside, with homeowners able to access an extensive range of local amenities and choose from a selection of good and outstanding schools in the surrounding area. Residents at The Shires will benefit from close proximity to Laindon station, which provides frequent services to London Fenchurch Street station in just 35 minutes.
Kerry McCoubrey, Sales Director at Redrow Eastern, commented, “The new homes are launching in a delightful rural location, yet residents will benefit from the convenience of close access to Basildon’s and Langdon Hill’s leisure and education facilities. Our Heritage Collection homes are hugely popular in the local area and we have already had over 500 registrations of interest ahead of the upcoming launch. Our help to sell initiative is available for buyers who are looking to sell their previous property and make a move to The Shires.”
Redrow’s Help to Sell scheme is aimed at simplifying the selling process for those leaving an old home behind, with the housebuilder arranging two or three appraisals of the former property while also handling all marketing activity to help sell homes quickly and easy. The scheme is open to all buyers, no matter whether they are moving up or down the property ladder, and at no extra cost.
The new homes we are delivering at The Shires has enabled the construction of a brand new hospice for locally based St Luke’s Hospice. Construction of the new hospice will commence shortly and once completed will operate as a ‘twin’ with the existing hospice in Basildon.
St Luke’s Hospice, Basildon Chief Executive Eileen Marshall said, “We are excited at the prospect of work being underway on our new hospice. The hospice will enable us to offer more choice and flexibility about how and where people are cared for, delivering the end of life care that people with life limiting illnesses, their families’ carers and all local people in need of the services that St. Luke’s Hospice provide deserve.”
St Luke’s Hospice was our charity of the year in 2015, with us raising over £34,000 for the charity.
The homes will initially be sold from our nearby The Avenues at Westley Green development in Langdon Hills (Dry Street, Langdon Hills, Essex, SS16 5NG). Buyers will be able to view the finish of a Redrow home first-hand at The Avenues and see inside a Cambridge show home, which will be available in the first phase of The Shires.
