Crest Nicholson, the developer behind Hardwicke’s new Whitstone Hundred development, is recommending potential house buyers consider the benefits of buying a new house, in light of new research claiming energy bills could rise by more than £300 a year by 2020 .
New build properties can help to prevent high energy bills, as they are fitted with a good standard of insulation and double glazed windows, which helps to combat against rising prices, particularly during the winter months. The award-winning team at Crest Nicholson want house hunters to be aware of the cost savings that could be made as a result of buying a new build home, in addition to the blank canvas it provides.
The properties at Whitstone Hundred, the latest phase of the Hunts Grove development, give buyers the opportunity to choose the final touches before they move in, which removes the additional costs of re-decorating and being left with the distasteful colour schemes of a previous owner. This can range from selecting the ideal paint pantone to choosing their favourite kitchen work surface, which can help to make the home of your dreams a reality.
Amanda Benjamin, sales manager at Crest Nicholson, said: “There are lots of benefits to buying a new property, from being energy efficient and low maintenance to having a complete ten-year NHBC warranty and having the opportunity to choose the interiors to suit the customer’s own preferences.
“These tough economic times have made people become even more conscious about where they are spending extra money, so we want to make home buyers aware that a new build property can help reduce spending on expensive outgoings, such as energy bills and extra decorating.
“Being the first owner of a property is a popular reason for buying a new build, as is the ability to move in straight away. The properties at Whitstone Hundred have proved to be particularly popular amongst residents from Gloucester and the surrounding area, so buyers had better move quickly if they want to snap up one of the remaining properties.”
Crest Nicholson’s stunning Hardwicke development benefits from a range of stylish and spacious family homes that are far from the small, characterless homessometimes associated with new build developments.
The three bedroom Huntingdon house is ideal for a couple looking to settle down or a family looking for a new home in a rural setting, which is close to a number of schools and has good transport links to the M5. The property benefits from a spacious lounge that opens directly out onto the garden, some of which have views over the surrounding Cotswold hills, in addition to an open plan kitchen/dining room. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, which is an added extra to the family bathroom.
Prices at Whitstone Hundred currently start at £159,950 for a three bedroom Huntingdon house. For more information about Whitstone Hundred, and the properties available, please contact the sales team on 0870 753 1866 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
