Buyers are racing to snap up properties at Lovell Homes’ Firs Park development in Norwich – named in honour of the city’s former Firs Speedway Stadium.
Nineteen properties - a third of the homes available for sale at the development - have sold since it launched just four months ago. Early Bird reservations have also been taken out on an additional 13 homes which are not yet released for sale. Located in the popular suburb of Hellesdon, Firs Park’s name pays tribute to the speedway venue which stood nearby until the 1960s.
The recent launch of two inspirational show homes has further fuelled demand from homeseekers eager to purchase a brand-new, high-quality home in the area, says Lovell regional sales manager Adrian Garrood: “Much of the interest is coming from people who grew up locally and want to remain close to their roots. With so little new-build property available in Hellesdon, people are keen not to miss out on the chance to secure a home at Firs Park.
“Being just three miles from central Norwich, it’s also a great place to settle for anyone needing easy access to the city centre with its lively cultural scene, shops and restaurants.”
A major factor in the development’s success, its two show homes – the two-bedroom semi-detached Lawson house style and the three-bedroom semi-detached Oakley house type – provide a stunning showcase for the superb standards of build and finishing on offer at Firs Park where Lovell is creating a mix of two-bedroom apartments and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses.
Another key selling point is the availability of the Government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan* scheme which enables purchasers to access an equity loan (interest-free for the first five years) of up to 20 per cent of the value of their property and move in with a deposit of just five per cent. Nearly 90 per cent of buyers at Firs Park so far have purchased their home using the Help to Buy scheme.
The high demand for homes means only a limited number of properties are currently available, including the three-bedroom Pymar house style, with garage, priced from £274,950 (£219,960 price after a Help to Buy: Equity Loan). This attractive semi-detached town house’s ground-floor accommodation includes the well-equipped kitchen / dining room with Bosch appliances and a spacious living room with French doors to the patio and rear garden. On the first floor are two bedrooms, the family bathroom and a study, ideal for home working, while on the second floor is the master bedroom with en-suite and built-in Hammond sliding wardrobes. Also available is the detached three-bedroom Betts house type at £269,950 (£215,960 price after a Help to Buy: Equity Loan).
With excellent access to the local road network – including Norwich’s outer ring road – and Norwich Airport, the development is definitely well placed for commuting. It’s also near a wide choice of schools and colleges and just 20 miles from the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
