MAKING the move for better and more flexible living is the goal of many new homebuyers.

And with townhouses at Bluebell Homes’ Ross on Wye development, customers can be assured of achieving it.

There are two styles of 2.5 storey properties available at St Mary’s Garden Village, offering flexibility of living and great value too. And it means buyers can be assured of superb style and choice, as well as the opportunity to change and adapt their homes as their needs and lifestyles alter.

Sales director Adele McCoy says: “Townhouse living is definitely seeing a resurgence. They are becoming increasingly popular with both first-time buyers and families looking for more open plan, flexible spaces.

“With different rooms and areas across three floors, today’s townhouses offer a layout that’s adaptable and able to adjust, whether that’s to new family members, pets, jobs, or even hobbies.

“And that upper floor, which uses space so often wasted in typical two-storey homes, is perhaps the most versatile. It can become a luxurious principal suite, or even an independent ‘pad’ for the growing teenager of the family who craves privacy.”

The townhouses at St Mary’s Garden Village start from £285,000 for the Tetford, with the Tadlow available from £315,000. Both are semi-detached, with each offering spacious open plan living and practical yet stylish three and four-bedroom layouts respectively.

The Tetford greets people with a welcoming hallway, off which is a comfortable and elegant front-facing lounge. A kitchen and dining area spans the width of the home with a downstairs cloakroom ticking the box of today’s must-have essentials.

On the first floor, there are two generously-sized bedrooms served by a family bathroom and, on the second floor, there is the third, and main, bedroom which has a desirable en-suite shower room, as well as an additional space which has a number of uses.

Adele adds: “This is just one of the flexible rooms offered by this remarkable townhouse, and it’s ideal for a dressing room or, as people increasingly work from home, that office or study area, or a handy gym.

“For those who perhaps don’t need three bedrooms, the entire upper floor could even be a cinema and games room, which would be perfect for families.”

The Tadlow offers similar style on the ground floor, albeit with the lounge opening out on the garden at the rear of the property. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, with the principal bedroom, en-suite and additional space on the upper floor.

Other benefits of townhouses include more sustainable living – building up instead of out makes the most of the property’s footprint – plus, because heat rises, they are easier to keep warm and potentially more economical and energy efficient.

Each of the Tadlow and Tetford homes benefit from the wealth of additional features being bestowed by St Mary’s Garden Village, which include walking and fitness trails with equipment, a gym with a community hub, a kick about area, cycle hire facilities, and a children’s play area.

St Mary’s Garden Village, which is a 348-home development being shaped by Bluebell Homes and Edenstone Homes, is on the doorstep of some of Herefordshire’s most spectacular countryside while being just under a mile from the town centre of Ross on Wye, a thriving town with good schools and plenty of amenities along with a mix of shops and places to eat.

It also boasts excellent road links with proximity to the M5 motorway.
