SUMMER nights could soon be spent relaxing in the garden of a readymade new home in Somerset.

Work at the Avalon development in Glastonbury is progressing well, with a new phase recently released for sale. There’s even the chance to make a summer move to a four-bedroom detached property that’s simply waiting for the finishing touches that help make a house a home.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “While the famous Glastonbury Festival and the stunning Somerset countryside see thousands of people descend on the area during the summer months, we’re offering the chance to put down permanent roots in the area. The four-bedroom Bunbury is a fantastic family home, that’s sure to appeal to both locals and those looking to relocate to Somerset.

“With two sets of French doors opening out onto the rear garden, it’s perfect for those who want to make the most of their outside space – perhaps hosting a garden party or barbecue as a house warming, providing somewhere for the children to play or simply sitting back and relaxing. There will be plenty of time to take it easy as a new build home won’t require lots of repairs or renovations. In fact, research by the HBF suggests it could cost £70,000 to bring an older three-bedroom semi-detached home in line with a new build equivalent.”

Priced from £390,000, the Bunbury is a substantial double-fronted home, offering 1,298 sq ft of carefully considered living space.

The lounge spans from the front to the rear of the property. A window to the front, two at the side and French doors opening out on to the garden offer lots of natural light, emphasising the spaciousness of the room.

On the other side of the hallway is the combined kitchen, dining and family room. Destined to be the heart of the home and a throng of activity, this room also benefits from direct access to the garden via French doors.

A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, the main bedroom benefits an en-suite, leaving the family bathroom to serve the other three bedrooms.

Other homes available at Avalon, on Old Wells Road, include three, four and five-bedroom designs, with prices ranging from £285,000 to £475,000.

Subject to build stage, buyers will be able to select from a range of options to make their home their own prior to moving day.

Homeowners should also be able to enjoy lower energy bills as Elan’s homes achieve a minimum EPC rating of B, making them some of the most efficient available.

While Glastonbury Festival is world renowned, the local area has much more to offer including 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.
