New Poulton properties fit the bill for 'forever homes'
With a range of three and four-bedroom semi and detached homes at the Poulton development hailing from our Heritage Collection, properties tick many of the boxes that buyers look for when choosing a home for life, according to The Nottingham.
The building society’s survey of 2,000 people found a back garden was top of the list when choosing a future forever home, insisted on by 68% of respondents, and followed by almost half looking for a front garden.
A garage, offered with many of the houses at Oldfield Park, was next in line, chosen by 45% of people questioned, with an en-suite (39%) and at least three bedrooms (38%) making up the top five.
Fortunately for Poulton buyers, the homes at Oldfield Park are considerably more affordable than the average cost UK adults expect to pay for a forever home – more than £470,000 – with homes on the new phase priced from just £229,995 to £284,995.
Lesley Myers, sales manager at our Lancashire division, said: “Our homes at Oldfield Park boast three or four-bedrooms, front and rear gardens, driveways or garages, en-suites to master bedrooms, open plan living spaces, downstairs cloakrooms and many more desirable features buyers look for in a ‘forever home’.
“The development offers excellent value for money and, with incentives such as Help to Buy available, buyers could be in a brand new home much sooner than planned.”
The three-bedroom Ludlow, priced at just £229,995, looks as good from the outside as it does on the inside. The Ludlow boasts a traditional Arts & Crafts inspired exterior including a roofed porch and large windows. Inside the space is bright, modern and streamlined for family life. An open-plan kitchen diner spans the width of the ground floor with French doors out to the rear garden, while there’s also a spacious lounge with large windows and a downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, there’s a stylish master bedroom with en-suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The four-bedroom detached Shrewsbury offers an extra bedroom and an integral garage for just £265,995.
Help to Buy is perfect for first-time buyers and offers a 20% equity loan interest-free for five years, leaving just a 5% deposit needed and a 75% mortgage.
Located on Carr Head Lane, the development boasts excellent commuter connections by rail and road, superb shopping close by and a choice of OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ primary and senior schools within walking distance.
Trains from nearby Poulton Station will whisk residents into Blackpool in just eight minutes, whilst Preston is only 18 minutes away.
