Downsizers looking for a home that offers ease of living could find that an apartment in Bilston is on the level.
More than half of homeowners planning to sell their property in the next three years say they’d like to move to a smaller house. But while the latest Downsizers Report from Lloyds Bank says moving to a bungalow is the most common option, Redrow is encouraging movers to think about the other choices available.
At Chestnut Walk they’ll find maisonette style apartments and homes that are easy to manage and efficient to run.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said: “People thinking of downsizing often imagine themselves living in a bungalow. But the reality is that they’re in short supply. Figures from the NHBC suggest that bungalows accounted for just 1% of homes built last year.
“The good news is that at Chestnut Walk we have a choice of properties that are perfect for downsizers. For example the ground floor apartments offer the convenience of everything being on one level with open plan kitchen, living room and diner.”
Current prices at Chestnut Walk start from £92,995 for a one-bedroom ground floor apartment.
From the outside the buildings that house the apartments look like traditional two-storey homes, with each property enjoying the privacy of its own independent entrance.
Inside, all of the homes enjoy a high specification as standard, including well equipped kitchens, stylish bathrooms and energy efficient heating systems.
“The beauty of buying a brand new home is that there’s no need to worry about repairs or renovations,” Pauline adds.
“Plus, those who downsize from a draughty older property that’s too large for their needs should find that they save on their energy bills.”
Located within a 30-minute commute to Birmingham via train, the new homes at Chestnut Walk are close to the Wolverhampton/Birmingham Canal and within easy reach of Bilston town centre.
