Last chance for chic city style living in Leegomery
With two thirds of the homes at Abode in Leegomery sold in just nine months, buyers looking for a contemporary property face a race against time.
Launched in May last year, Abode by Redrow brings chic urban style living out of the city and into the popular neighbourhood near Telford.
The Abode designs combine ‘uncluttered’ but smart façades with a host of in-vogue interior features including underfloor heating, fashionable wet rooms, plus banks of discreet storage units.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said: “The Abode style of living has really captured the imaginations of buyers in Leegomery. We’ve now sold two thirds of the properties and more than half of all of the homes are already occupied. Feedback from homeowners is that they love the convenience of almost all of the ground floor being open plan. With only 13 homes yet to be sold we’d encourage those who want to embrace this style of living to act fast to avoid disappointment.”
In addition to the two fully furnished show homes, potential purchasers can also view a finished example of the three-bedroom Abode 1300.
With 1,331 sq ft of floor space in total, this property boasts over 550 sq ft of open space to the ground floor comprising a bright and airy kitchen, dining and living area. The different areas are clearly defined but the openness makes it perfect for modern living and socialising. A separate cloakroom and laundry space complete the downstairs accommodation.
Upstairs, the master bedroom features an en-suite, leaving the remaining two-bedrooms to share the family bathroom.
The Abode 1300 is priced from £184,995. By taking out a Help to Buy equity loan for up to 20% of the price, purchasers could see the initial cost of this home reduced to £147,996. Someone buying in this way should typically only need a 5% deposit which works out at just over £9,000. Crucially the equity loan is interest free for five years and can be repaid when the customer has more funds available – or when they resell.
