ONE lucky buyer could receive a deposit boost towards a new home in Barnstaple.

Elan Homes has just one home available on the current phase of the popular Pickards at Larkbear development.

Future phases of the wider new neighbourhood, which will eventually include a new primary school, a local centre with potential uses including a small shop, surgery, pharmacy and community hall; and there will be acres of open space and woodland, plus cycle paths and other facilities, are subject to planning.

In the meantime, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom semi-detached Dunham is being offered with a £10,000 gifted deposit contribution.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “We have one home currently available at Pickards at Larkbear. While future phases of the new neighbourhood are subject to planning, one lucky buyer won’t have to wait long to be able to move in and become part of the new community that’s already taking shape here. It’s the ideal solution for those who’re searching for more space for their growing family.

Plus, the offer of a £10,000 gifted deposit contribution could improve the mortgage options available and help lower the monthly repayments.

“Unlike older properties, it won’t need costly repairs and renovations – the new owners will be able to move straight in as soon as the legalities are complete. Plus, there are potential long-term savings as our homes achieve a minimum Energy Performance Certificate rating of B, making them cheaper to run than most older properties. This also means they’re eligible for green mortgages from selected lenders.”

Priced from £374,995, the Dunham offers 1,461 sq ft of living space, set out over three floors.

The well-equipped kitchen is at the front of the Dunham, with a combined lounge/ dining room at the rear with French doors opening out on to the garden, offering lots of natural light and easy access to the outside space. A convenient cloakroom completes the ground floor.

On the first floor there’s the family bathroom, plus three generously sized bedrooms, the main benefiting from an en-suite. Two further bedrooms, a shower room and storage space are on the top floor.

“It’s testament to the quality of our homes in Barnstaple that we’re already receiving enquiries from people interested in moving to future phases of the development,” Tracey added. “They’re currently subject to planning, but we’ll be updating potential purchasers when we can.”
