Miller Homes West Midlands new site in Northfield enjoyed great success as it opened this weekend, with interest in the new homes evident with prospective buyers watching as prices were unveiled.
Miller Central, situated Off Rea Road, has only been in construction since the beginning of the year with demand for the plots pushing the development to release its eagerly anticipated properties.
Located in a pleasant residential corner of Northfield, Miller Central is able offer a community-feel selection of houses and apartments. For commuters looking for a base with amenities just a short drive from the city, the development is able to offer a secluded ambience with attractive streetscapes, whilst being just 20 minutes drive from central Birmingham and only around three miles from both the M5 and the M42.
Sales and marketing director for Miller Homes West Midlands, Linda Androlia, explains: “Construction on-site has progressed quickly and we’ve been overcome with enquiries in the first few months. It’s great to see a crowd of people on launch day and we feel our welcome return to Birmingham is complete.”
The Northfield development, located on the former Kalamazoo site will offer a mix of high quality two, three and four and five bedroom properties.
Androlia continues: “The temporary sales office ensures we’re well equipped to respond to enquiries quickly and effectively. It’s an ideal solution as the permanent fixture will not be in place until August with the site hoping to reach completion in the coming months.”
“The level of interest we have received so far suggests that confidence in the West Midlands housing market is on the rise. With the new development we’re able to meet demand and assist the region in meeting its yearly target for new homes.”
The development was able to begin construction as a result of Kickstart funding with selected properties on the site set to offer the Government backed shared equity initiative, HomeBuy Direct. The scheme is designed to help first-time buyers, renters and those living at home to move into affordable home ownership. Buyers are offered an equity loan of up to 30 per cent of the purchase price, co-funded by The Government and Miller Homes. Any household earning £60,000 or less who could not afford to buy a suitable property on the open market is eligible.
“With reports that house prices are on the increase and schemes like HomeBuy Direct only available for a limited period, this is a great time to consider either stepping onto or moving up the property ladder,” Androlia added.
“Due to the variety of size and style of apartments and houses on the development, Northfield offers the perfect solution for both first time buyers and those looking to move. With over 100 homes for private sale on site, we look forward to receiving continued interest from buyers visiting the site as construction continues.”
A range of properties are on offer at Northfield with a three bedroom mid terrace available from £186,950 or, with HomeBuy Direct from £130,865. One bedroom apartments can be purchased from £92,950 and, with HomeBuy Direct, from just £65,065. For more information call 0800 840 8705 or visit www.millerhomes.co.uk
