Leading homebuilder Barratt Homes has begun work on a development of 95 bespoke new homes on Leicester Road in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, which will be launched to the public in the new year.
Featuring a selection of desirable two, three, and four bedroom homes, the development is situated in the idyllic Leicestershire countryside close to the National Forest. The first homes are expected to be complete in the spring of 2014.
As well as building the new homes, Barratt Homes will be giving more than £1.3 million to the local community through Section 106 contributions, which will be put towards schools, healthcare, transport improvements, travel passes and library facilities.
Jan Ruston, Sales Director for Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We are very excited by Hastings Park, and believe that homebuyers should visit the development as soon as it launches in the new year to have the best chance of snapping up a new home in the heart of rural England.
“This is a great opportunity, whether you’re a first time buyer or taking your next step on the property ladder, as our award-winning homes are efficient and modern, and can be bought using the popular Help To Buy scheme. And with Barratt’s exclusive five year warranty, everything that comes with these exceptional homes will be covered.”
“This five year guarantee on fixtures and fittings provides cover over and above NHBC standards absolutely free, so you don’t have to worry about any unanticipated costs when you move in. What’s more, our contributions to local communities demonstrate we don’t just provide bricks and mortar, but funding towards local projects and facilities.”
Hastings Park is located at the southern end of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, a sought-after historic town which boasts a delightful range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as supermarkets, excellent schools and even a ruined castle, managed by English Heritage as a popular tourist destination.
There are also excellent transport links, with the M42 just minutes away from Hastings Park, linking to the M1 and A50 in the north, and the A511 linking to the M1 south-bound. East Midlands Parkway railway station is just 25 minutes away, where direct trains to London take as little as 90 minutes.
As a well-established homebuilder, Barratt prides itself on creating exceptional homes in the finest locations and recently achieved the maximum five star rating in this year’s HBF Customer Satisfaction Survey, in which customers are asked if they are satisfied with the quality of their new home and whether they would recommend their builder to a friend.
