NEW homes in Lichfield are almost ready to move into with just road works to be completed, Elan Homes has confirmed.

The company, with its Midlands based business headquartered in Coleshill, has sold four of the eight homes it’s built on land at Rotten Row.

Known as The Sidings because of its proximity to the Birmingham Cross City railway line, access issues have prevented Elan from showing members of the public around the development.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball explained: “Access to the site has been extremely limited due to the nature of the works involved. We’re in the process of installing services and laying the roads and once those works are complete we’ll be able to invite buyers to view the houses. All eight have been built and have had the kitchens and bathrooms fitted. Half of them have been reserved and we’ll soon be welcoming the first residents into their homes.

“We’re also making good progress with the conversion of an existing building, most recently used as a gym, to provide apartments. It’s an interesting project with some quirky designs as we’ve tried to retain as much of the original structure as possible. For example, new windows will be positioned where the original ones were back when the building was two semi-detached homes. There will be a central staircase and lobby as part of the apartment building. The top floor apartments will have vaulted ceilings with steel exposed, while the ground floor apartments will have courtyard gardens.”

Homes currently available at The Sidings include the two-bedroom Johnson, priced from £330,000 and the three-bedroom Garrick, priced from £380,000. Both will be ready to move into as soon as the legalities are complete.

The Johnson features a combined kitchen and dining room at the front. The lounge is at the rear and has French doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs, the main bedroom benefits an en-suite, effectively leaving the family bathroom to serve the other bedroom.

In the Garrick, the lounge is at the front, with an open kitchen and dining room at the rear with French doors opening onto the garden. 

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

Both house types benefit a downstairs cloakroom.

The apartments are due to be released for sale this summer.

The homes are just a five-minute walk from Lichfield city centre. Lichfield City and Lichfield Trent Valley stations are within easy reach, making the development an ideal commuter base.
