FINDING space to work from home, spend time as a family and without having to face a morning rush for the bathroom are among the challenges of modern living addressed in the final new homes at Avalon in Glastonbury.

Elan Homes has carefully considered how people really live when designing its new homes.

The homebuilder has provided a good mix of properties at the popular development, including bungalows, attracting a range of first time buyers, families and downsizers.

There are now just two homes available – both examples of the four-bedroom detached, double fronted Broughton, which offers 1,502 sq ft of living space.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball explained: “Feedback from our homeowners and visitors to our Avalon development in Glastonbury is that they appreciate that we’ve thought about who will live in the homes and how they might use the space. The four-bedroom detached Broughton is a prime example. It has a study – perfect for working from home – and two en-suites, helping ensure busy families can all be ready on time in the morning.

“The Broughton is very much designed to go with the flow of family life, with the option of adapting the space to your lifestyle. Our floor plans show a lounge at the front, with double doors leading through to a dedicated dining room, which in turn connects to the open plan kitchen and family room. But you don’t have to use the space that way. If you have young children, what we call the dining room could be their playroom and then the family room could become the dining area.”

Both the family room and dining room offer direct access to the rear garden via French doors. 

A handy utility provides a dedicated space for the washing machine and dryer. A  cloakroom completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, two of the bedrooms have an en-suite, meaning the family bathroom serves just two bedrooms.

The Broughton is available from £465,000.

Elan’s homes achieve a minimum Energy Performance Certificate rating of B, making them cheaper to run than most older properties. This also means they’re eligible for green mortgages from selected lenders.

Elan has a range of incentives available to help get people moving. These include part exchange, where the homebuilder will effectively act as a guaranteed cash buyer for the customer’s home; Easy Move, where Elan will manage the sale of the customer’s property; or a deposit boost to help a buyer’s money go further.

Located on Old Wells Road, the new homes at Avalon are taking shape less than 10 miles from Worthy Farm, home of Glastonbury Festival.

Glastonbury Tor offers a chance to explore the outdoors, including a butterfly trail, there’s also the historic abbey, plus all the amenities people want from a neighbourhood including restaurants and gastro pubs, high street stores, quirky independents and a regular market.
