Downsizers looking to reduce their bills and free up cash while moving to somewhere that better suits their circumstances could find that a brand new home in Leicester ticks all the right boxes.
Research by Lloyds Bank found that downsizing is now the most popular reason for moving – cited by some 46% of home movers.
Featuring homes that are easy to manage and efficient to run, Redrow’s Hamilton Gardens and Hamilton Park developments in the Hamilton area of Leicester could provide the ideal solution.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), explains: “Moving to somewhere that better suits their circumstances tops the list of why people want to downsize. In some cases that’s because they’re rattling around in what was their family home, but is now too large for them since their children moved out. Reducing bills and freeing up equity also rank highly.
“We’d encourage people considering downsizing to visit Hamilton Gardens and Hamilton Park to discover the benefits of buying a low maintenance, energy-efficient, practical new home.”
Between them, Hamilton Gardens and Hamilton Park offer a good choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes from Redrow’s Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection.
Combining the traditional charm of ‘period’ properties with the style and convenience of being brand new, they offer the best of both worlds.
Prices start from £177,950, with a three-bedroom Broadway available from £217,950.
The Broadway features an open plan kitchen and dining room to the front, with a lounge that spans the width of the property to the rear. There’s a convenient cloakroom downstairs, while upstairs the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite to complement the family bathroom.
“The Broadway is perfect for downsizers as it means they can move to somewhere that better suits their needs, while still having room for family and friends to stay,” Pauline adds.
“Plus, because the master bedroom boasts an en-suite, the family bathroom effectively becomes a guest bathroom.”
Hamilton is a popular place in which to live and the properties are ideally placed to enjoy easy access to both the countryside and the amenities of Leicester city centre.
