ONE lucky buyer could open the door to an energy efficient new home in Devon in time for Christmas.

Elan Homes has released the final few homes on the current phase of its popular Pickards at Larkbear development in Barnstaple.

Among the properties available is a three-bedroom semi-detached Ripley, a former view home, which is ready to move into.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “Pickards at Larkbear has been a fantastic success with people keen to be part of the new community taking shape as part of the urban expansion of Barnstaple. We’ve almost wrapped up our first phase of the development and have just a couple of homes available. There’s even the chance to move this side of Christmas and deck the hall of a brand new home this festive season.

“As our gift, we’re offering the Ripley with flooring and landscaped gardens included.  Plus, with the chance to save up to £2,600 on energy bills* by switching from an older property to a brand new home, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.”

The Ripley is available from £325,000, making it Stamp Duty free for first time buyers.

It features a combined kitchen and dining room at the front, with lounge spanning the width of the rear of the property. French doors lead from the lounge to the garden, helping make the most of the outside space. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, one with en-suite, plus the family bathroom.

The Elan homes at Pickards at Larkbear are part of a wider 820-home new neighbourhood being developed across a 58 acre site, off Old Torrington Road.

The overall scheme will also include a new primary school; local centre with potential uses including a small shop, surgery, pharmacy and community hall; there will also be acres of open space and woodland, plus cycle paths and other facilities.
