DEPOSIT help and a package of extras are being offered on new homes in Southport in a deal worth up to £20,000.

The substantial savings are available on selected properties at its popular Balmoral Gardens development on Balmoral Drive.

Elan Homes is offering a 5% gifted deposit contribution, plus flooring throughout and turf to the rear garden on selected homes that are ready to move into.

There’s even the chance to buy the four-bedroom Sheldon view home, complete with light fittings and curtains.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “The cost of living is impacting on almost everyone. To help first time buyers and home movers we’ve introduced a 5% gifted deposit on selected homes at some of our developments. At Balmoral Gardens this alone has the potential to save someone £17,000. Then when you factor in that we’re also providing flooring throughout and turfing the garden, it adds up to around £20,000.  This has the potential to make a life-changing difference to buyers. It could mean they’re able to secure a new home much sooner than they thought, perhaps somewhere larger they can grow into rather than out of, or simply mean that their mortgage repayments are easier to afford.”

Homes in Southport available with the deposit contribution include the three-bedroom detached Marford, priced from £284,995. On this property, Elan will offer £14,250 towards the customer’s deposit.

For those looking for a four-bedroom detached home in Southport, there’s the chance to save on the Sheldon view home, priced from £312,995, and a Rochester style property, priced from £339,995. On the Sheldon, the gifted deposit is worth £15,650, while on the Rochester it amounts to £17,000.

The Sheldon offers 1,125 sq ft of carefully considered living space. It’s among the homes being built to Lifetime Homes standard with wide doorways and well-planned living spaces designed to accommodate mobility aids or for a wheelchair to turn.

For example, there’s an open plan kitchen, dining and family room, configured in an ‘L’ shape, with two sets of French doors leading out onto the rear garden. This space is destined to be the hub of family life, leaving the front lounge for quieter relaxation.  A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

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

In the Rochester, the lounge with feature bay window is 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.

All four bedrooms are a good size and as with the Sheldon, the main bedroom has an en-suite to complement the family bathroom.

All of Elan’s homes achieve a minimum EPC rating of B, making them some of the most efficient available. This should enable homeowners who switch from an older property to enjoy lower utility bills. It also means they’re potentially eligible for green mortgages from selected lenders.

Moving to a home at Balmoral Gardens offers 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.

Balmoral Gardens is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For more information about Elan’s homes in Southport see
