New homes snapped up in Hinckley

House-hunters in Leicestershire have eagerly snapped up new homes at Crest Nicholson’s desirable Canal Reach development in Hinckley, with over 85% of properties now sold and only seven three-bedroom properties left available. The wide range of homes from the award-winning housebuilder has proved especially popular with young professionals, couples and downsizer.

For those considering an imminent move, Canal Reach still has a variety of three bedroom houses available, many of which are ready to move into straight away.

The Hanbrook house type is one such home. This contemporary house features an open plan living and dining room on the ground floor with French Doors leading onto the garden, making it the perfect space in which to entertain. Also on this floor is the modern fitted kitchen and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, purchasers will find two well-designed double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a third bedroom, which would make an ideal nursery or study. The Hanbrook also enjoys its own garage.

Amanda Benjamin, Senior Sales Manager for Crest Nicholson, said: “We’re not at all surprised the homes at Canal Reach have sold so well. Their excellent quality finish and the nearby amenities have made this a sought after spot. We would urge anyone who is thinking about a new home to come down and have a look at the fantastic homes we have available to move in to now. ”

In addition to the Hanbrook, which is available from £131,960*, other three bedroom properties available at Canal Reach include the Huntingdon, available from £127,960*, the Kennet from £147,960* and the Kensington from £155,950*, all of which come with their own garage.
