A RARE breed new build bungalow will be open for viewing in Lydney from July 13, giving house hunters the chance to size up their buying options.

Bluebell Homes is committed to creating homes people will love to live in for years to come.

Recognising that the scarcity of brand new bungalows means that buyers may find it difficult to visualise how this style of housing could suit their lifestyle, the homebuilder is extending an open invitation to view a finished example of the two-bedroom Eastbourne.

Sales director Adele McCoy explains: “People are surprised to discover that we’re building and selling bungalows at River View as they’re such a rarity. We’re excited to be opening an Eastbourne view home to satisfy buyers’ curiosity so they can appreciate the layout and how the space could work for them. We’re confident visitors will be surprised by the spaciousness from the moment they step inside.”

The Bluebell team has designed the Eastbourne to maximise the potential of its footprint. This carefully-considered home features an open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge to the front. A utility provides dedicated space for the washing machine and dryer.

The bedrooms are situated at the rear of the property and have a shared bathroom. In selected plots, the master bedroom has a dressing area.

The second bedroom has French doors that lead out to the garden.

“The Eastbourne at River View demonstrates that there is very much a place for new build bungalows and not just on retirement developments,” Adele added. 

“It’s a home that meets the needs of a good cross-section of purchasers from first time buyers keen to make that crucial first step on to the housing ladder, to young families who want the convenience of having everything on one level, to those who perhaps have another home abroad and so require a low maintenance lock up and leave solution.”

The Eastbourne is available from £199,995. For those who want a larger property, River View Garden Village offers a choice of three and four-bedroom designs.

Help to Buy equity loans are available, offering buyers the chance to secure a new home with a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is covered by an equity loan, which is interest free for five years.

Situated on Highfield Road, overlooking the Severn estuary, the development will include an electric car charging point for every home. Allotments and cycle hire facilities will be available for residents’ use from this summer.

Play areas and exercise equipment will also form part of the new community being developed by Bluebell Homes alongside sibling company Edenstone Homes.

Lydney itself is well served by a choice of schools and benefits from a wide range of shops and amenities too.

The Eastbourne view home will be open from July 13. For more information, see www.bluebellhomes.co.uk/river-view or call 07384 795 620.
