Redrow new homes prove a hit


Friday 22nd October 2010

New homes by housebuilder Redrow Homes appear to be going down well with homebuyers, if the company's recent sales success is anything to go by.

Redrow has announced that there are now just two new homes remaining for sale at its Stourscombe Vale development in Cornwall, while there is only one home left for sale in phase one of its Cae Ffwrnais venture in Ebbw Vale, south Wales.

At Stourscombe Vale, located on the outskirts of Launceston, there are currently two four-bedroom houses available to buy, priced from £175,000.

"Cornwall is a beautiful place to live and can offer families an enviable lifestyle, with the striking coastline only half an hour away by car for watersports, or for those who crave a more relaxed pace of life, the rolling countryside is perfect for lazy Sunday walks," says Vanessa Randall-Short, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South West).

Meanwhile, over at the Cae Ffwrnais development, the remaining new build home features three-bedrooms and appears to be competitively priced at £127,995, which is sure to appeal to families in the local area.

Rachael Davies, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Wales), said: "This remaining ‘Beaufort' house type is ideal for families who are looking to trade up to a larger house while prices are still very affordable.

"This stylish semi-detached home features a convivial open plan dining room and kitchen - perfect for sharing a family meal or entertaining guests, and an en suite to the master bedroom."

It appears that new homes by Redrow Homes area also proving popular with buy-to-let investors.

After successfully letting their first Redrow apartment near Milton Keynes, Deirdre and Lindsay Galloway decided to add to their property portfolio by purchasing a second property from the new home developer.

The couple, from Silverstone, had previously bought and rented out a two-bedroom apartment at Bletchley Park without fuss and so decided the time was right to invest more of their pension money in a second new build home.

Retired Deirdre, 62, married to technical director Lindsay, 63, said: "We'd been saving up for quite a while when we decided to buy our first apartment from Redrow in Bletchley. The money had been earmarked for a second home in France, but we decided that market was not ideal and I started to look at investment properties closer to home.

Deirdre added: "Once I heard the second phase had three-bedroom units, I came down to have a look, as I thought the rental potential could be even greater. We'll complete on the property later this month and I don't envisage any problems finding tenants as the quality of the property is so high."

Two bedroom apartments at Bletchley Park are currently priced from £147,950.
