Climb the housing ladder in Somerset

HOMEOWNERS could secure a smooth move to one of the first homes at a new development in Milborne Port with the aid of part exchange.

Elan Homes is hosting a special open weekend at Kingsbury Gardens on July 25 and 26 when those with a home to sell can find out more about how part exchanging could save them the hassle of selling their existing home.

Elan’s sales director in the south, Andrea Nippe, said: “With part exchange we will take their home off their hands and put the value towards the cost of a new one. We effectively act as their cash buyer and there are no estate agent’s fees to pay. Not only will they have peace of mind that they’ve secured a buyer, there’s no onward chain so they can start enjoying life in their new Elan home sooner rather than later.”

Kingsbury Gardens, located off Wheathill Lane, will eventually feature 20 three and four-bedroom homes in the traditional Somerset village of Milborne Port. Surrounded by rolling countryside, but with a wealth of local clubs and societies, the village enjoys a fantastic community spirit.

Convenient for commuters it’s just off the A30 and three miles east of the historic market town of Sherborne, which is well known for its medieval buildings, Abbey and schools.

Elan Homes recently opened a marketing suite at Kingsbury Gardens and many of the homes have already been sold off-plan. The housebuilder will soon be showcasing the charming homes when a show home opens later this summer.

Andrea added: “As well as part exchange, we’ve got lots of other ways to help get people moving. For those who may be moving sideways or downsizing, our assisted move scheme is here to help. It means we take all of the hassle of selling away, and market our customers’ existing homes on their behalf. Alternatively, Help to Buy is available and provides an equity loan from the government of up to 20% to enable purchasers to buy with just a 5% deposit. It’s perfect for first time buyers or those with little equity in their current property.”

While the homes all have a traditional appearance in keeping with their surroundings, inside they are light, bright and modern; benefiting from a contemporary and stylish internal specification, fitted kitchens and built in appliances.

Prices start at £235,995 for a three-bedroom home at Kingsbury Gardens.

The part exchange weekend takes place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, July 25 and 26. Alternatively, to book an appointment to visit Kingsbury Gardens call 07891 312887.
