The homes at Pippard’s Court where off-plan buyers can customise the interior options

PROSPECTIVE home buyers at a new development in Somerton’s ‘Artistic Quarter’ have the opportunity to customise their dream home – before they even move in.

Clevedon-based developer Elan is promoting the benefits of ‘off-plan’ buying at Pippard’s Court which comprises seven spacious and luxurious townhouses.

Would-be buyers have the opportunity to tailor interior options and specification choices to suit their needs and personal tastes. These include kitchen units and work tops, bathroom tiles, along with other added extras.

Catherine Marshall, sales director for Elan Homes in the South, said: “Buying off-plan has a range of benefits. In particular it’s a chance for home buyers to really put their stamp on a property before they get the keys.

“It can also offer an opportunity to secure a preferable position on a development, with the buyer perfectly placed to take advantage of any upturn in property values, potentially finding their home is worth more by the time they move in.”

Pippard’s Court, off Pesters Lane, is part of a new Artistic Quarter in Somerton for people to live, work and play which also encompasses The Stepping Stone Group and Arts Care Education (ACE).

The townhouses feature traditional architecture and stone features to blend with the surroundings, along with their own garages and private enclosed gardens.

They have been specially designed to provide expansive living space, catering for people whose children may have flown the nest or those simply looking for more manageable space.

For those with an existing house to sell, Elan offers a Part Exchange scheme through which the house builder could buy a purchaser’s existing home to free up the funds to purchase a brand new Elan property. Subject to suitability, Elan will arrange for two estate agents’ valuations on the current property within seven days.

Alternatively, Elan’s EasyMove is another option, helping save money on estate agents’ fees. With EasyMove, Elan will help to arrange to market the current property and, when an offer is received which is acceptable, would-be purchasers can then reserve an Elan home.

Prices at Pippard’s Court start from £385,000 for ‘The Croscombe’ house, which provides luxury living across three floors.
