Leading housebuilder Barratt Homes is encouraging homebuyers to consider the benefits of apartment living at New Lubbesthorpe, its Leicester development, where a number of brand new apartments are now available.
A typical living room in an apartment at New Lubbesthorpe
Homebuyers pay no Stamp Duty on homes up to £300,000, and with the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, both first-time buyers and existing homeowners can purchase a home up to the value of £600,000 with just a 5% deposit and won’t have to pay any interest charges on this loan for the first five years.
Buyers are also entitled to an equity loan of up to 20% of the full price of the property.
New Lubbesthorpe offers a selection of high quality one and two bedroom apartments and Barratt Homes has revealed its top reasons why so many people are turning to this type of property:
Convenience and manageability in one place
One of the key benefits of apartment living is having everything on one floor. Residents can enjoy a property where everything they need is in one place, without compromising on space. Single storey living can be a great option for downsizers who are looking to make a move to a more manageable property while still enjoying plenty of room.
Suitability for socialising
The open plan layout of apartments makes them ideal for socialising with family and friends. This design creates a large open space which is the perfect place to relax with others. The generous open plan kitchen and living areas are ideal for hosting dinner parties and other celebrations, where the host can prepare refreshments while socialising with guests.
A close-knit community
Residents at New Lubbesthorpe can enjoy becoming part of a growing neighbourhood as one of the many advantages of owning an apartment is the sense of a close-knit community that comes with it. The welcoming feel gives residents peace of mind and having your neighbours smile and greet you always provides a feeling of belonging.
Debra Marriot (56), who moved to an apartment at New Lubbesthorpe recently, said: “As I was moving in on my own, I wanted something with no upkeep that I didn’t have to worry about and the whole process with Barratt Homes has been lovely.
“My apartment is great with two really good-sized bedrooms and two bathrooms, because I like to have family and friends over too.
“I love that when I come home from a day at work, my apartment is so cosy and so homely.”
The Beggars Lane development offers residents a desirable semi-rural lifestyle while retaining conveniences such as excellent road links. With the M1 and the M69 nearby, residents can reach surrounding areas such as Leicester, Nottingham and Birmingham easily.
