The Furlongs, the exciting development of new homes for Hereford by award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson, is proving so popular with local house-hunters that over 75% of properties have now been sold or reserved.

Encompassing a contemporary selection of two, three and four bedroom homes in a variety of styles to suit all types of buyers, the development enjoys access to beautiful countryside, whilst still being in close proximity of the amenities of the nearby city centre. The Furlongs is also perfectly situated for several good schools such as St. Xavier Francis’ Primary and Holmer Primary, as well as numerous secondary schools and colleges. With the recent opening of a brand new, state-of-the-art play area, the development is already proving particularly popular with young families.

One of the homes currently available to view at The Furlongs is the four bedroom Calder, which provides a glimpse into the stylish living on offer for the modern family. This attractive property provides a large, triple aspect living room with French Doors opening out onto the garden. The open-plan kitchen / breakfast / family room (with separate utility) is the heart of the home, where busy parents can easily keep an eye on the kids as they do their homework and make quick work of dinner, and the hub of the party where everyone loves to congregate. It also offers a second route to the garden through French Doors and the separate dining room allows for more formal entertaining. Upstairs you’ll find the main bedroom, with hotel style en-suite and dressing area, and a further three bedrooms complemented with a family bathroom.

Rebecca Gripton, Sales Manager at Crest Nicholson, said: “The homes at The Furlongs have received very positive attention from a broad range of interested buyers, particularly first-time buyers and families looking to upsize. Our Part Exchange scheme is perfect for families looking for a bigger home as we arrange three independent local estate agents to value the buyers’ existing home and, providing the home meets the criteria, Crest Nicholson will make an offer on the property, making the process much simpler.

“The popularity of the development is a real testament to the quality of the homes on offer.  As a result, we’re anticipating even greater interest in our remaining properties, so I’d strongly recommend anyone looking to move in the Hereford area visit us soon if they want to be sure not to miss out.”
Under the Help to Buy scheme, prices at The Furlongs currently start from £191,960 for a four bedroom Warwick house and £283,960 for a four bedroom Calder house.
