Ian Paterson and Laura Paterson Groen relocated from Switzerland to St Mary’s Garden Village.
Ian said: “Having things like the gardens, walking trail and community hub with gym was an important selling point.”
Laura added: “It’s really nice to have things like ponds on the doorstep as it means we don’t have to take the car to go for a walk. There’s a brilliant cinema nearby at Labels and the first big shop is about a 15-minute walk away or we can wander into the town centre in around 25 minutes.”
St Mary’s Garden Village features everything from one-bedroom maisonettes through to family-sized four-bedroom homes, and everything in between, including bungalows. Currently, with Edenstone’s Move in for Christmas promotion there are additional savings to be made on a number of homes.
Selected homes are available through the HomeReach shared ownership scheme. Subject to eligibility there’s the opportunity to purchase a 50% share of a one-bedroom maisonette from just £92,500.
Open market prices start from £250,000, for a two-bedroom semi-detached Ashmore, which is well-suited to first time buyers and downsizers alike.
The largest home within the new community is a four-bedroom detached Monmouth, priced at £499,995.
All homes at St Mary’s Garden Village achieve an EPC rating of B with the potential to reduce energy consumption and running costs.
According to research from the HBF, the average new build homebuyer saves more than £1,600 on their energy bills over a year compared with those living in older properties. For those living in houses rather than flats or bungalows, the annual saving is £2,200.
