FAMILIES looking for a new home close to Chester are being urged to cast their search net further and consider a move across the Welsh border to Penymynydd.

They’ll soon realise that by expanding their geographic search they will increase their options and could find that their money goes further, enabling them to buy the home of their dreams at a more affordable price. Moving out of the city and its suburbs could also bring lifestyle benefits with the option to explore the countryside close to home and to become part of village life.

All this and more can be achieved with a move to Heritage Park in Penymynydd.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, says: “Moving across the Welsh border is the perfect solution for those who work in Chester but don’t want to have to pay the premium price that an address in the city or even its suburbs commands. We’re encouraging people to think differently not just about where they want to live but how they want to live. Heritage Park is ideally situated in a quiet location where children can walk to school and families can become an active part in the local community

“Chester can be reached in 10 minutes by car, but seems a world away from Heritage Park. The homes have potential for some great views of open fields, offering a breath of fresh air to commuters. Plus it’s reported that since the Welsh Assembly abolished prescription charges, there’s been an improvement in the health of people living in Wales.

“Another advantage is that while UK universities can charge up to £9,000 in tuition fees students from Wales won’t have to pay more than £3,575.”

Those who have done their homework and scoured the internet in their search for a new home in and around Chester will have seen that four-bedroom properties in the city and its suburbs can command prices upwards of £400,000.

In comparison, homes at Heritage Park are competitively priced, with a five-bedroom Ashford style property available from £352,995.

It features a spacious lounge, open plan kitchen and family room, plus a formal dining room. At utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

Upstairs, two of the five bedrooms benefit from en-suites with the remaining three bedrooms sharing the family bathroom. Those who don’t need all five bedrooms could utilise the extra space perhaps as a home office, gym or playroom.

Show homes at Heritage Park are open daily from 10am to 5pm. For more information about the homes and the help available, call Elan on 0845 481 8807
