IT’S not quite the sprawling 500 acres of the Balmoral Estate, but to celebrate its royal connection and the coronation new homes in Southport are being offered with a 5% gifted deposit contribution.

Elan Homes has crowned its scheme in the Churchtown area Balmoral Gardens in honour of its royal namesake.

Both the Balmoral Estate and Balmoral Gardens comprise around 150 properties, but at 14 acres, the Elan development is much smaller in scale than the Scottish home of the Royal family.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “There’s so much talk about the coronation that it’s difficult to avoid – particularly if your address has a royal link. Our Balmoral Gardens development is located on Balmoral Drive and so homeowners have been joking that they live on the Balmoral ‘estate’. There’s a right royal choice of homes available, perfect for those looking to lay their crown in a new home. Plus, in celebration of the coronation we’re offering a range of move-making incentives on selected homes at Balmoral Gardens including a 5% deposit contribution or up to £12,000 towards a year’s mortgage repayments.

Balmoral Gardens offers everything from two-bedroom properties, well-suited to first time buyers and downsizers, priced from £194,995, to substantial four-bedroom family homes, priced up to £354,995.

On a four-bedroom detached Sheldon, priced at £312,995, there’s the chance to receive a 5% deposit contribution, flooring, turfed rear garden and an outside tap fitted in a deal worth more than £20,000.

The Sheldon features an open plan kitchen, dining and family room with two sets of French doors, offering easy access to the rear garden; plus separate lounge at the front of the property.

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

Elan is offering up to £1,000 a month for 12 months towards the mortgage repayments on selected homes at Balmoral Gardens including the four-bedroom Rochester.

Priced from £339,995, it has a lounge with feature bay window at the front, with a combined kitchen and dining room at the rear, opening out on to the garden. A utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

As with the Sheldon, the main bedroom has an en-suite to complement the family bathroom.

Located on Balmoral Drive, the homes at Balmoral Gardens, offer the chance to live within an established community, with a choice of schools rated good and outstanding nearby. Independent shops tearooms and gastro pubs are within walking distance, while the beach is around five miles away.

The sales office and show homes at Balmoral Gardens are open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For details see
