KINGSWOOD Homes is offering a lifeline to those who fear they will miss out on one of the final new homes in Elswick because they have a house to sell.

The Lancashire village location, high specification and the opportunity to Shape Your Home to your lifestyle, have combined to make The Hawthorns a popular choice.

Factor in that Kingswood will help sellers become buyers with its Assisted Move scheme, it’s no surprise that demand remains high.

Sales director Lesley Myers said: “Assisted Move is designed to help people sell their current property and purchase a brand new home. It’s been a real success across our developments over the last six months with 92% of those who sign up for the scheme selling in this way. All of them have achieved the asking price or above, with the average customer home sold within 34 days. At The Hawthorns four people have already used Assisted Move to sell their old property to enable them to buy a brand new Kingswood home, with a further four in the process of selling in this way.”

With Assisted Move, Kingswood will arrange for the customer’s current property to be valued and marketed by a respected agent, agreeing the price and managing the whole process on their behalf, leaving them free to focus on their future in a brand new home.

The final homes at The Hawthorns offer a choice of three and four-bedroom detached designs, priced from £314,995 to £418,995.

“The beauty of Assisted Move is that it can be used by homeowners on any rung of the property ladder including those ready to downsize as well as families who need a more spacious home,” Lesley added.

“There’s no correlation to the price of the property they’re selling or buying, plus we’ll even contribute towards the cost of the agent’s fees.”

Among the homes available at The Hawthorns is the Haybarn 3, a three-bedroom detached home, priced from £314,995 with a landscaped garden included.

At the front of the Haybarn is a cosy living room with full height windows letting in lots of light. To the rear is the open plan kitchen/dining/living area with patio doors leading out onto the garden. A practical under stairs store room plus WC and utility room, complete the ground floor. Using Shape Your Home buyers can choose to forego the entrance hallway to incorporate this space into the living room.

Upstairs, the standard configuration is three bedrooms, including generous main bedroom with en-suite, plus the family bathroom. Buyers may wish to make this main bedroom smaller and create a fourth bedroom or study with Shape Your Home.

Surrounded by fields, the homes at The Hawthorns offer the best of rural and city living, with village amenities close by and Preston just 30 minutes’ drive away.
