ELAN HOMES is anticipating huge interest in the Haywood bungalow released at its intimate Three Js development in Abberley.
The two-bedroom detached property is a beautifully-designed contemporary home, with spacious accommodation leading off a central hallway.
And with only one of its kind in the Worcestershire village-set Three Js – and the desire for bungalows soaring* – the housebuilder doesn’t expect it to be available for long.
Elan regional sales director Tracey ball explains: “We have seen interest in single storey living grow over the last few years and, in particular as buyers’ priorities have changed due to the pandemic.
“Older buyers appear to be keener than ever to move into property that’s more suitable, with no stairs and less maintenance; but it’s not just the retired or downsizers who are seeking this type of accommodation.
“The desire for more space – perhaps for a home office – privacy and a garden, has seen flats falling out of favour with younger people who still want that apartment-style living. And they, too, are looking increasingly at bungalows.”
The Haywood certainly has much to offer any of these buyers, with a large kitchen and dining area boasting double doors leading out onto the rear garden, and a separate lounge at the front.
Priced from £310,000, it also has two good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom, with all rooms leading off a wide and welcoming hallway.
As well as the rare chance to purchase a high-quality, brand-new bungalow – fewer than 2% of new-builds are single-storey – homeowners could enjoy the benefits of the leafy setting, with more than 40% of Three Js being given to open green space including a wildflower meadow and a central community orchard.
And there are the delights of Abberley itself. Steeped in history – Three Js is named after John Joseph Jones, who commissioned the famous Abberley Clock Tower – it’s only a short drive away from the Malvern Hills and the spa town of Malvern, and close to Stourport-on-Severn, Bewdley and Kidderminster.
Families have a choice of schools including the highly regarded Chantry High School, rated outstanding by OFSTED, as well as Abberley Preschool which is also rated outstanding.
For those wishing to commute, there are two train stations only seven or eight miles away – Hartlebury and Kidderminster – and trains running from Worcester to Birmingham and London. And there are excellent road links with junction 7 of the M5 giving access to the Midlands motorway network and beyond.
