With 80% of the homes now sold and buyers queuing up to snap up properties not yet for sale, opportunities to move to Thorpe Meadows in Countesthorpe are few and far between.
Three years after the first properties were released for sale at Redrow’s popular development, only six miles from Leicester, it’s now a well-established community where people aspire to live.
Demand is so high that Redrow is taking ‘early bird’ reservations on the remaining new homes, giving buyers first refusal when their preferred property is released for sale.
Tonia Tyler, sales director for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), says: “Thorpe Meadows was an instant success with the first home reserved in spring 2012. It’s remained a popular choice with buyers and has blossomed into a highly desirable new neighbourhood where people really want to live. In recent months we’ve been achieving a steady sales rate of four properties a month and have now sold 80% of the properties.
“People are so keen to live here that they’ve made ‘early bird’ reservations for properties that won’t be ready to move into for some months. Those hoping to move here should contact us without delay to be in with a chance of securing one of the remaining homes.”
Among the homes available at Thorpe Meadows is a four-bedroom detached Welwyn style priced from £334,950.
At the heart of the Welwyn is a convivial open plan kitchen, dining area and family room with handy utility. This inviting sociable space is complemented by a separate lounge for quieter moments. A cloakroom/wc completes the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs, the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite, with the remaining three bedrooms sharing the family bathroom.
Located less than 20 minutes from Leicester city centre by car, the homes at Thorpe Meadows enjoy a charming village setting with a rural outlook that many people aspire to. There are good local schools nearby and shops that cater for homeowners’ daily needs are within walking distance; while Fosse Shopping Park is just a short drive away for those who want to indulge in some serious retail therapy. Plus with the M1 and M69 within easy reach, it’s also a great commuter base.
