WITH the showcase property now sold, the final countdown of new homes in Somerset is on.

Elan Homes has just seven properties available at its popular Avalon development in Glastonbury.

Buyers can choose from three house types – a three-bedroom semi-detached Fenwick, three-bedroom detached Russett Special or a four-bedroom detached Broughton.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “With 85% of homes at Avalon now sold, time really is of the essence. We’ve already sold the show home and many of the properties are now occupied. We’ve welcomed a good mix of buyers, including those who’ve chosen Avalon for their first home, families and downsizers. As people have moved in, a sense of community has grown. Those who buy one of the final new homes now could find they’re able to move in time to save money on their energy bills this winter.

“It’s well documented that new homes are more energy efficient than older properties which should mean lower bills. All of our homes achieve at least a B rating for energy efficiency. The benefit of this to homeowners is that it also makes them eligible for green mortgages. Available from selected lenders, these tend to offer more favourable interest rates than regular mortgages.”

Current prices at Avalon start from £285,000 for the three-bedroom semi-detached Fenwick.

It features a lounge at the front, with open plan kitchen and dining room benefitting French doors opening out to the garden. A handy cloakroom completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en-suite and fitted wardrobes, leaving the family bathroom to serve the other two bedrooms.

Available from £380,000 the Russett Special offers a flexible solution to modern living, with rooms that can be easily adapted to suit your lifestyle.

The dual aspect, open plan kitchen, dining and family room spans from the front to the rear of the property and is certain to be a hive of activity and the hub of the home. It’s complemented by a separate lounge, which benefits from French doors opening directly onto the rear garden.

There’s also a room that could be a formal dining room, a study, playroom for the children, a guest bedroom, gym or a combination of these.

A cloakroom, with shower, completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, one with en-suite, plus a family bathroom.

The largest of the homes available at Avalon is the four-bedroom detached, double-fronted Broughton.

Priced from £465,000, it features a lounge at the front, with double doors leading through to the dining room. In turn the dining room leads to the combined family room and kitchen, which can also be accessed via the hall. Both the family room and dining room offer direct access to the garden via French doors.

There’s also a utility, study and cloakroom.

Upstairs, all four bedrooms are doubles, two with en-suites to complement the family bathroom.

The new homes are being built on Old Wells Road, 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.
