With a choice of local schools nearby and University Park taking shape on the doorstep, new homes at Kings Park in Worcester are well placed for families with children of all ages.
Located off Bromyard Road, the Redrow development is bordered by some 20 acres of woodland, making the new homes a natural choice for those who want to raise a family away from the hustle and bustle.
The centre of Worcester is just two miles away and the proximity of the M5 and M42 motorways makes it a good base for commuters.
All in all, it’s the perfect setting for spacious four and five-bedroom detached homes that are full of family-friendly features, including multiple bathrooms, handy utility rooms and convivial open-plan spaces.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), explains: “The homes at Kings Park really are the polar opposite of the ‘boxy properties’ people sometimes imagine when they think of a new-build. Visitors to Kings Park are amazed by just how roomy are homes are and the amount of living space they offer. Our design team has really thought about how our customers live and what they want and need from a home.
“In particular we offer some lovely four-bedroom designs where room sizes have deliberately not been sacrificed to squeeze in an extra bedroom. For example, at 2,029 square feet in total, many developers would have made the Richmond a five-bedroom property, but we’ve chosen to give it four more generous bedrooms instead. With two en-suites it’s ideal for those with teenagers who spend hours in the bathroom and the master bedroom also benefits from a walk in wardrobe.”
At the heart of any family home is the kitchen; and the Richmond is no exception. A cleverly designed open plan kitchen, dining and family area spans the entire width of the rear of the house. The kitchen takes centre stage with the dining area to one side and the family living space to the other.
“Whilst open plan in essence, there are clearly defined areas for different activities, which works well, and this sociable space is complemented by a separate lounge to the front of the property,” Pauline adds.
The kitchen itself is well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, plus tall cabinets and extra wide drawers with soft close finishes to stop little fingers getting trapped.
There’s also a utility room for the washer and dryer, a downstairs cloakroom and an integral double garage.
There’s a Richmond ready to move into at Kings Park, priced £444,995.
Those with an existing house to sell may be able to trade it in as part-payment for a brand new home, using part-exchange.
Or buyers who have sold subject to contract could cut the initial cost of moving to Kings Park by taking out a 20% equity loan through Help to Buy. This reduces the initial outlay for a Richmond to £355,995. The equity loan is interest free for five years and can be repaid when the customer has more funds available.
“Moving to Kings Park now could be a prudent step for those with children of all ages. The area’s well served by schools and the University Park is being built nearby offering higher education and employment opportunities,” Pauline adds.
