Award-winning developer, Crest Nicholson, is launching its brand new development, Green Acres at Alrewas, in Staffordshire. Composed of 84 traditional two, three, four and five bedroom homes, the development is located in the picturesque village of Alrewas and will be available from July 11.
The homes have been designed to fit in with the existing character of Alrewas and are ideal for a range of purchasers from young families and first-time buyers to downsizers looking for somewhere to settle down. Those looking to get a feel for the properties will be able to visit The Calder, a four-bedroom show home with a kitchen, dining room and study.
Alrewas is set within a conservation area next to the River Trent, offering buyers tranquil surroundings with a number of amenities close by. The green setting provides a perfect haven for those that appreciate a peaceful, natural environment.
Vanessa MacNee, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Midlands, commented: “We’re very excited to be launching Green Acres at Alrewas next month. The homes are in a lovely, peaceful location with plenty of amenities available, so we expect the development to be popular with purchasers looking for a quality home in a village location. Interest is already high, so we’d encourage potential buyers to come and take a look at our show homes and register their interest as soon as possible.”
“This is a great time for first-time buyers to get their foot on the property ladder, with mortgage rates at a historical low” said Dean Jacobs, Director at Allegro Mortgages.
“Buying a first home can be a daunting process, but a number of schemes and incentives are available to ease some of the difficulties. The government offers the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, allowing first time buyers to secure a mortgage with just a 5% deposit. The government also waives stamp duty for a first home for anything up to £300,000.
“A Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA are both very useful for first time buyers, providing a 25% boost on your savings to use towards the deposit of a first home. It is important to remember that lenders are competing for business too, so buyers should be aware of this and seek out the best incentives – lenders can sometimes offer up to £500 cash back.”
Residents of Alrewas will have everything they need right on their doorstep. As the nation gradually comes out of lockdown, residents will be able to make the most of local shops, a range of traditional pubs and a popular butcher, all located within the village. A dentist, a doctor’s surgery and a post office are all on the doorstep too. There are a number of schools within walking distance of Green Acres, including All Saints’ Primary School. Alrewas is also home to a park, two village halls and a cricket club, so there is plenty for residents to get up to in their leisure time.
Green Acres also benefits from good travel connections, with both the A38 and A515 nearby. There are two train stations in the nearby historic city of Lichfield – Lichfield Trent Valley and Lichfield City – offering direct access to Birmingham in around 40 mins and London in under two hours.
Select homes will be available for purchase under the government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, allowing buyers to purchase with just a 5% deposit. Buyers will be able to take advantage of the last few months of the scheme, which allows an interest free equity loan of up to 20% of the cost of the home, meaning that only a 75% mortgage is needed to make up the rest.
Alternatively, Crest Nicholson’s SmoothMove scheme is available on selected homes, taking the hassle out of selling your current home. SmoothMove takes care of everything from getting the purchasers current house valued, to booking viewing times and paying estate agents’ fees. Crest Nicholson also offers a Part Exchange scheme, helping purchasers sell their existing home with a guaranteed cash buyer before moving.
