Make a smart move & buy a new home in Walton
THE spiralling cost of upgrading an older property means the smart money is on new build homes.
Buy a brand new Elan Home at Hall Gardens in the sought-after Lower Walton area of Warrington and you could save thousands by not having to finance repairs and renovations that an older property may need. Plus there’s the potential to save on annual running costs thanks to a range of energy efficiency features that come as standard with a new home.
Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, explains: “Older properties may at face value seem like a good investment, but there’s often hidden expenditure that can soon add up. In fact the HBF estimates that it costs around £45,000 to bring a three-bed semi to the same high standard as a brand new home
“Buying new is also really convenient. At Hall Gardens we’re currently selling five-bedroom properties ‘off plan’ which means our customers have the opportunity to choose the finish of the interior, selecting things like the style of the kitchen and the colour of the bathroom tiles. They can then sit back and relax as we’ll install everything for them. Plus, there’s no need to wait for the previous owner to vacate the property – you can move in as soon as it’s ready.
“And the benefits of buying new don’t stop there. New homes are much more efficient in their use of energy so someone living in a new home could find that their energy bills are less than half than if they lived in an equivalent Victorian property that’s been upgraded.”
Five-bedroom homes at Hall Gardens are currently available from £514,995.
Designed with modern living in mind, the homes include family friendly features including open plan layouts with combined kitchen, dining and family rooms. In some house styles there are two en-suites to complement the family bathroom, while in others the master bedroom has an en-suite with two bedrooms sharing a shower room and the family bathroom serving the remaining bedrooms.
Situated on Chester Road, the homes at Hall Gardens are perfectly placed between town and country as there’s farmland to one side of the development; while the amenities of Stockton Heath are a pleasant 15 minute stroll away on foot or can be reached even quicker by car.
Plus, with easy access to the motorway network, it’s a great base for commuting to Liverpool, Chester or Manchester.
The homes at Hall Gardens are currently being sold ‘off plan’ via a sales office open Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. For more information, call 0845 250 8681
