EAGER buyers have been keen to snap up new Redrow homes in Lytham, where five properties have been sold off-plan.

Lytham Quays is the latest place to feature designs from the sought-after New Heritage Collection, and while show homes are yet to open, the development is already proving popular.

Plus, with the Government-backed NewBuy initiative making 95 per cent mortgages possible on homes up to £500,000, demand is likely to increase further.

Julie Harper, area sales manager for Redrow Homes in Lancashire, said: “We knew from the size of our database of people who had expressed an interest in the homes at Lytham Quays that there was a demand for traditional-looking quality-built family homes in this part of Lancashire, and we have been delighted with the response.

“The fact that we’ve already secured five off plan sales before we even opened a show home is testament to our reputation for building homes that people really want to live in.

“We’re also working with several other potential purchasers who want to make a move to a new home. We’re confident the development will echo the success we have seen across the region with our New Heritage Collection.”

Arts and crafts features will be seen to varying degrees on the homes at Lytham Quays, including dropped eaves, projecting plinths, timber or tiled canopies over doors and windows, supported by decorative gallows brackets, and the use of larch lap boarding as a feature.

Open-plan layouts will put well-equipped kitchens at the heart of the homes.

The kitchens boast integrated top brand name appliances, including microwave, oven and fridge freezer, plus tall cabinets and extra wide drawers which offer plenty of storage.

Upstairs, family bathrooms and en-suites will enjoy quality fixtures and fittings, with a tile range exclusive to Redrow.

The development features four-bedroom traditional looking family homes, priced from £279,995.

Redrow is offering to help those with a home of their own to sell, via its Mastermove service; enlisting a tried-and-tested local estate agent to market the customer’s existing property, monitoring their activity, and even paying their fees at the end of the day.

Once a buyer has been secured, the customer can proceed with the purchase of their new Redrow home.

For those who want a larger and even more luxurious home, Lytham Quays also features some bespoke five-bedroom villas, priced from £1.24m.
