Shrewsbury ranks as one of the happiest places to live in Britain, but if you’re not happy with your current home there’s plenty of choice at Lime Tree Meadows.
The town made the top 10 in Rightmove’s annual Happy at Home Index based on a combination of 12 factors including community spirit, access to sports and arts facilities and opportunities for residents to better themselves.
For those looking for a new home in the area, Redrow offers a selection of three and four-bedroom properties at Lime Tree Meadows on Ellesmere Road.
Buyers will have plenty to smile about as they combine the charm and character of ‘period’ properties, with the style and convenience of being brand new.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said: “The Happy at Home Index reflects many of the things we consider when we’re choosing where to build and that are important to homebuyers. It’s no surprise that Shrewsbury ranks so highly as there’s a real sense of community and the people are friendly and polite.
“The area also benefits from a range of essential and non-essential amenities. For example, there’s a primary school just a few minutes’ walk from our new homes. Plus, the shops, restaurants and other amenities in the town centre are within easy reach, including the train station.”
Current prices at Lime Tree Meadows start from £239,995 for a three-bedroom Ludlow style property.
Help to Buy equity loans are available, enabling purchasers to secure a brand new home with a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is covered by the equity loan, which is interest free for five years.
“One of the things that brings smiles to our customers’ faces is being able to truly make their home their own,” Pauline added.
“Instead of inheriting the previous owners’ design choices, they can make their own selections using the My Redrow area of our website to choose the finish of things like the kitchen or the bathroom tiles. There’s even the chance to add practical extras such as hot and cold water filter taps, additional appliances or even eco options like a charging point for an electric car or water butt. The range of options means that no two homes will be same, plus it’s really convenient as it means that once the property is ready you’ll be able to move straight in.”
