An example of the three-bedroom Palmerston from Elan Homes

A move to a new home close to one of Merseyside’s most expensive addresses could be just weeks away.

Just around the corner from Victoria Road, aka Millionaires’ Row, Elan Homes is building three, four and five-bedroom homes.

Properties at The Dunes are available from £339,995 – just a fraction of the £3.5 million paid for a property on Victoria Road last year. 

Plus, with part exchange considered, homeowners eager to move up the housing ladder could save time and money.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, explains: “The vast majority of people who have enquired about homes at The Dunes have a house of their own to sell and in many cases they haven’t yet put it on the market. Figures from suggest that the average selling time in Formby pre-lockdown was almost five months (147 days) while the average time on the market for unsold properties was more than seven months (213 days).

“We’re offering to help speed up the selling and buying process with part exchange.  
Designed to help people moving up the housing ladder, those who choose to move with part exchange could effectively have a guaranteed cash buyer and exchange contracts in just 28 days. They can stay in their current property until their new home is ready.”

Among the properties available with part exchange is the three-bedroom Palmerston, priced at £364,995

The Palmerston features a lounge to the front, with open plan kitchen, dining and family room to the rear. 

Two bedrooms, and the family bathroom, are on the first floor, with the master bedroom and en-suite encompassing the entire top floor.

There’s even the chance to own the four-bedroom Halstead show home, priced from £659,995. It features a range of upgrades including kitchen, floor tiles and wardrobes, with carpets, curtains and blinds also included in this professionally styled property.

Situated on Lenton Avenue, homes at The Dunes enjoy a sought-after location within walking distance of the beach and famous red squirrel reserve.

Freshfield station is less than 15 minutes’ walk away, offering commuter connections to Liverpool city centre.

The neighbourhood is also home to upmarket supermarket Waitrose and an M&S Simply Food.

The sales office and show homes at The Dunes are open by appointment only, with social distancing measures in place. For more information or to make an appointment, call 01704779364 or see
