Beautiful new showhomes to open their doors at newly-unveiled Gislingham housing development


Leading house builder Lovell Homes is preparing to unveil two stunning new showhomes at its recently-launched St Mary’s View development in the Suffolk village of Gislingham.

The three-bedroom Ash and four-bedroom Elm showhomes, both of which have unique interior designs created by the experts at Edward Thomas Interiors, will open their doors to would-be buyers at the select development of three, four and five-bedrooms detached homes on Thornham Road during a special event from 10am on Saturday 18th May.

Together with Lovell’s senior sales executive, an Independent Financial Adviser will be on hand throughout the day to answer any and all questions visitors might have about purchasing a new home at St Mary’s View. 

The Ash boasts a spacious living room with double doors leading to the private rear garden, a versatile kitchen/dining room, and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

The landing leads to three well-proportioned bedrooms, including one with its own en-suite shower room, and a main bathroom.  

Meanwhile, the Elm features a light and airy living room with double doors leading to the enclosed rear garden, a dual-aspect kitchen/dining room, a handy utility room, and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs is home to four good-sized bedrooms, one of which comes complete with its own en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom.

Adrian Garrood, regional sales manager for Lovell, said: “We are delighted to be revealing the Ash and Elm showhomes to would-be buyers at St Mary’s View.

“Both of these properties offer flexible living space that’s perfect for modern families, and I would urge anyone who wants to be in with a chance of moving to the development to come along to the event.”

The Help to Buy scheme is available at St Mary’s View, enabling first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to make a move to a brand new home with an equity loan of up to 20% of the full price of the property with the Government with just a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The equity loan is interest free for the first five years.

Lovell’s Helping Hands scheme, through which the developer assists existing property owners in selling their home, is also available, while the Part Exchange initiative offers a guaranteed buyer without a property chain.

What’s more, quick-off-the-mark purchasers will be rewarded for getting in early with a wide range of colour choices, including inspiration items, allowing them to completely personalise their new home. All selections and inspiration products are subject to the build stage.

St Mary’s View, which takes its name from the village’s grade I-listed, 13th century church, benefits from a tranquil yet well-connected setting that’s simply bursting with rural charm, and all of its homes have been lovingly-designed with the local Suffolk vernacular in mind.

Parents will appreciate the range of schools in the area, including three primary school and two secondary schools that were rated ‘Outstanding’ in their most recent Ofsted inspections.

The market town of Diss in the neighbouring county of Norfolk is just a nine-mile drive from home, and its railway station offers regular direct services to Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Chelmsford and London Liverpool Street.

Stowmarket is just 10 miles away and plays host to a popular street market twice weekly, not to mention a unique blend of national and independent retailers on its high street.

Further afield is the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, whose medieval streets and striking architecture offers stunning visual marvels, and has numerous shopping opportunities such as the Arc Shopping Centre, which includes a range of big-brand stores and restaurants.

There is currently a stunning selection of three, four and five-bedroom homes available to reserve at St Mary’s View.

Every Lovell home has Style, Quality & Value built in from the very start, making the properties at the development places that prospective purchasers would be proud to call their own.
