Downsize without compromise to a new home in Elford

DREAMS of downsizing to a new home in an idyllic village close to Tamworth and Lichfield could come true with help from Elan Homes.

Almost 90% of Elan’s new homes at Seven Acres in Elford have now been sold – around half of them to downsizers. 

With the final countdown underway, time is running out for those who want to embrace the rural lifestyle in an energy efficient new home.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “We’ve built a good mix of new homes in Elford, from apartments to bungalows and family sized homes to reflect the broad appeal of the area. Elford is a lovely village with a real sense of community just 10 minutes from Lichfield and Tamworth. The location, combined with the choice of homes, specification and energy efficiency of our homes has made Seven Acres a popular choice, particularly with downsizers who account for around half of our homeowners.

“We’re now down to the final three homes – a choice of the two-bedroom Beeston or the three-bedroom Howden. They’re all ready to move into and perfect for those who want a home that’s easy to manage and efficient to run. The good news is having a house to sell doesn’t have to be a barrier to moving – our EasyMove scheme can help them secure a buyer on the open market via trusted local agent. There’s no correlation between the value of the properties being bought or sold. When they receive an acceptable offer, they’ll be able to reserve their new home from us. Contracts on the two properties will be exchanged simultaneously and we’ll even pay the agent’s fees.”

For those who want to buy a more expensive home than the one they’re selling, part exchange is a speedy solution as Elan will effectively buy it from them.

The two-bedroom Beeston offers 692sq ft of living space and is available from £269,995. It features a spacious lounge to the front; combined kitchen and dining room to the rear with easy access to the garden; plus, a cloakroom.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, plus a bathroom.

For those who want three bedrooms the Howden offers the perfect solution. It spans 750 sq ft with well-equipped kitchen, with integrated appliances, at the front of the property. At the rear, with French doors opening out onto the garden, is the open plan living and dining room.

A convenient cloakroom completes the ground floor.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

Seven Acres is perfectly placed to give homebuyers the best of both worlds with easy access to city life while enjoying rural living with the community at its heart. It has a village hall, a historic pub – The Crown – and a sports field which hosts football and cricket matches.

Less than five miles away, on the outskirts of Tamworth is The Ventura Retail Park, offering stores including Sainsbury’s and Asda Supermarkets, a large Marks & Spencer, Next, and Boots; and in Lichfield there’s a range of shops, restaurants, and activities.

Ideal for commuters, Seven Acres is just four miles from the A38, and seven miles from the M6 toll road; with Trent Valley Station with links to Birmingham New Street and London Euston only four miles away.

The show home at Seven Acres is open Friday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. To find out more about the new homes in Elford see www.elan-homes.co.uk/developments/seven-acres.
