Elan’s homes in Yeovil are ‘top of the class’ for families

A NEW collection of South Somerset homes are proving popular with families thanks to the wide choice of well-respected schools nearby.

As the first residents move in at Harbin Fields in Yeovil, Elan is keen to welcome more families to the development who want to be close to the town centre plus some of the top schools in the area.

Just a short walk from Pen Mill Infants School, last rated by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’ in 2010, the development is perfectly suited to those with young children.

Andrew Nippe, sales director for Elan Homes in the South, said: “Properties in the catchment area of the top schools are more sought after than ever. It’s often the deciding factor for parents that determines where they move and is why many families have given Harbin Fields ‘top marks’.”

Situated off Lyde Road, the development of four-bedroom detached homes is a unique offering for families. Forming a looped cul-de-sac, each property has its own driveway and generous garden, providing a safe place for children to play. In addition, all of the homes benefit from spacious, open-plan layouts, high-quality specification and plenty of storage options.”

There are a number of other schools close to the development, including Preston School, a secondary school judged by Ofsted in April 2012 as “a good school with outstanding features”, while further education is offered by Yeovil College.

Harbin Fields will eventually feature 35 properties, with current prices ranging from £249,995 to £296,995. A fully furnished show home is open to provide inspiration to buyers and an opportunity to view the high specification available.

Andrea added: “As well as a good choice of schools locally, the development is served by two train stations and has excellent rail and road links to London and Bristol. Yeovil itself has an wide selection of local shops, restaurants and amenities, including Marks and Spencer and Yeovil’s famous street markets.”
