With one in 10 householders counting the cost of botched DIY, starting afresh in a brand new home in Evesham could save time and money.
Research by Lloyds Bank suggests that 44% of homeowners have carried out significant home improvements or plan to do so – with varying degrees of success!
In contrast, the properties at Laburnum Gardens lend themselves perfectly to family living and won’t need lots of repairs or renovations.
With selected homes almost ready to move into, buyers could find that DIY is soon a thing of the past.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said:
“Repairs and maintenance can easily eat up a significant chunk of household budgets, particularly for those living in older properties. In fact many of those surveyed by Lloyds found their repair bills almost doubled when things went wrong.”
“The beauty of buying a brand new home is that there’s no DIY required. We’ll ensure the kitchen is fitted with stylish yet practical cupboards and drawers and that sleek modern suites and quality fixtures and fittings are installed in the bathroom and en-suite. We even include top brand name integrated kitchen appliances which come with manufacturers’ warranties for added peace of mind.”
Laburnum Gardens offers a choice of three, four and five-bedroom homes from Redrow’s sought-after Heritage Collection. Outside they boast some of the traditional architectural features that people crave for in an older home, but inside they have all the high-spec accoutrements for modern, family living.
Current prices start from £284,995 for a three-bedroom Worcester style property.
A four-bedroom detached Richmond, priced from £469,995 is simply waiting for the finishing touches that help transform a house into a home.
The Richmond is a substantial property spanning 2,030 sq ft of accommodation. At its heart is the kitchen with adjoining dining room and family area. This sociable space is complemented by a spacious lounge for quieter moments, with a utility and cloakroom completing the ground floor. Upstairs, two of the four bedrooms benefit from en-suite, with the master bedroom also enjoying the added glamour of a dressing room.
Just five miles from the Cotswolds, Laburnum Gardens enjoys a rural outlook and a sense of tranquillity. Located on Broadway Road, the development is set on the edge of the thriving market town of Evesham, enabling its residents to enjoy the best of countryside living but with easy access to a wealth of local amenities. With plenty of schools in the area, it’s ideal for families in search of extra space. The M5 is easily accessible, providing a link to the wider motorway network, including the M6. M42 and M1.
