NHS staff in Worcester have saved on housing costs thanks to a discount scheme offered by Elan Homes.
The company is building new homes at Stableford, close to the Royal Worcestershire Hospital, and revealed that almost half of their purchasers at the development work for the NHS.
Regional Sales Director Tracey Ball said: “Because of the proximity of our homes to the Royal Worcestershire Hospital we’ve been offering NHS workers the chance to live here for less with the choice of a £5,000 discount or a flooring package. The incentive has been available since before the pandemic and has factored in around 40% of sales. Many of our homeowners work for the NHS and were attracted by the idea of being able to live just a five-minute walk from the hospital.”
Stableford offers a choice of generously proportioned four and five-bedroom detached homes.
Current prices range from £380,000 for a four-bedroom Bunbury style property up to £565,000 for a Farnham offering 2,100 sq ft of carefully considered living space. An impressive, double fronted home, the Farnham features a dual aspect lounge, a dedicated dining room and an expansive open plan kitchen, breakfast area and family room. A utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor.
Upstairs, four of the bedrooms are doubles, with the option of creating a fifth bedroom from the galleried landing. This extra room would make an ideal home office. Two of the bedrooms in the Farnham benefit from an en-suite, to complement the family bathroom, with the main bedroom also boasting a dressing room.
While many people have been working from home more during 2020, the homes at Stableford are a great commuter base. They’re less than two miles or a 10-minute drive from Worcester city centre, with Worcester Shrub Hill and Worcester Foregate Street stations within easy reach for connections to Birmingham, London Paddington, Gloucester and Bristol.
Junction seven of the M5 is just 15-minutes away, offering links to the M42 and M40.
