WITH six sales in just five weeks, new homes in Southport are in demand.

Elan Homes attributes the success of Balmoral Gardens to a combination of the location, mix of homes, energy efficiency and ease of living.

While the homes are selling fast, the homebuilder has a small number of properties almost ready to move into.

As a pre-Christmas gift, those homes are being offered with a special package of incentives, worth more than £20,000.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Balmoral Gardens has become the place people in Churchtown and the wider Southport area want to live. We’ve welcomed a mix of first time buyers, families and downsizers and it’s become a lovely community within an already thriving neighbourhood. Our homeowners love the location as there are schools, shops and other essential services within walking distance. The beach and Southport town centre are just a few miles away.

“The homes themselves are designed with how people really live in mind, with open plan layouts and a host of energy efficient features to help keep the cost of living down. We have a pair of four-bedroom detached homes that are ready to move into with the chance to enjoy a warmer winter sooner rather than later. We’re playing Santa and offering a 5% gifted deposit contribution, plus flooring throughout and turfed rear garden, on those properties. It’s a substantial saving and could help buyers skip a step on the housing ladder or offset other costs.”

The incentive is available on the Sheldon, priced from £309,995, and the Rochester, priced from £329,995.

The Rochester offers 1,226 sq ft of well planned living space. The lounge is at the front, with feature bay window. Double doors lead through from the lounge to he open plan kitchen, dining and family room which is destined to be the heart of this home.  French doors open out from the dining area to the rear garden.

A utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

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

Located on Balmoral Drive, Balmoral Gardens offers a good choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes, with current prices from £224,995.

Show homes at the development are open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For the latest availability see
