ENERGY efficient, easy to maintain and with a finished property available to view, a visit to Avalon is a must for anyone considering downsizing their home in Glastonbury.

Elan Homes is nearing a sell-out at the popular development in Somerset with just five homes available.

To help inspire buyers, the homebuilder has opened a Russett Special style property for viewing.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “The majority of our homes in Glastonbury have already been sold and many of them are occupied. As we near the end of the development, we’re offering buyers fresh inspiration in the shape of the Russett Special. It’s perfect for those who want to downsize without compromise as it offers a flexible solution to modern living. We’d encourage viewing so that buyers can appreciate the potential of the space and how it could be used to fit their current and future lifestyle.

“As with our other new homes it’s easy to manage, with no hidden DIY disasters from previous owners to worry about. Benefits from a modern heating system and integrated kitchen appliances, plus a stylish bathroom and en-suite to the main bedroom.”

There are three detached Russett Specials available, priced from £380,000.

The house type offers 1,182 sq ft of carefully planned living space.

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 cloakroom, with shower, plus a flexible room at ground level that could be used as dedicated dining room, a study or a third bedroom.

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

“For parents whose children have moved into homes of their own, the Russett Special is the ideal solution. It’s great for entertaining and if you want a formal dining room there’s space for that,” Tracey added.

“Alternatively, this room offers the potential to have a ground floor bedroom and shower room, which could future proof those concerned about mobility issues in later life.”

Elan also has a pair of four-bedroom detached Broughton style properties available from £465,000.

The good news for those with a property to sell is that Elan can help them secure a buyer with its EasyMove scheme.

The homebuilder will value the customer’s home before instructing independent estate agents to market it. When an acceptable offer is received, they’ll be able to reserve a new Elan home. Contracts on the two properties will be exchanged simultaneously and we’ll even pay the agent’s fees.

The sales office and view home at Avalon on Old Wells Road, are open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For the latest availability and pricing see
