Brand-new Somerset development by Lovell Homes scoops Best Family Home title at First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards


Lovell Homes is celebrating a major win at the national First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards 2016 for its stunning north-east Somerset new homes development, Lavender Grove.

Lovell’s Hazelwood three-bedroom house style at Lavender Grove, Farmborough, was named Best First Time Buyer Family Home at the awards which are voted for by the public.

Run in conjunction with leading property magazine First Time Buyer, the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards event is the largest of its kind and celebrates the very best new homes designed to meet the needs of first-time purchasers and help people on to the housing ladder. The awards were announced in a ceremony hosted by TV presenter Nicki Chapman at London’s Waldorf Hilton hotel.

Lynda Clark, editor of First Time Buyer Magazine comments: “The judges were all very impressed with Lavender Grove and see it as the ideal home for a family. As well as offering a very high-quality specification, the property offers a great layout – perfect for busy family life and was also finished very tastefully. Offering exceptional value, this property is also situated in a very sought after location and is well positioned for outstanding schools, community and access to the countryside. Well done to Lovell Homes for bringing this lovely family home to the market.”

“Our team are absolutely delighted by this accolade for the Hazelwood house style at Lavender Grove,” says Lovell regional sales manager Julie Bowen. “It’s a home which has made it possible for first-time purchasers to secure an exceptional property in an idyllic village that has the added bonus of easy access to both Bristol and Bath.

“We’re incredibly proud that the development has enabled first-time buyers, so often unable to even consider a countryside home of this quality, to put down roots in this enviable location, and buy a property built to such stringent design and build standards. To be recognised by the First Time Buyers Readers’ Awards is amazing - especially as it’s the public who vote to choose the winner.”

The success of Lavender Grove has been reflected by consistently strong sales at the development, where only one property remains available - the development’s four-bedroom show home. This link-detached property - Lovell’s Chestnut house style - has a traditional stone-finished frontage and single garage and comes with furniture, carpets, curtains, blinds, soft furnishings, light fittings and fully landscaped rear garden all included within the price of £465,000 (£372,000 after a Help to Buy: Equity Loan*) making it ideal for anyone who wants to move straight into a picture-perfect home.

Ideally placed for travel to Bath, Bristol and other West Country destinations, Lavender Grove is around five-and-a-half miles from Oldfield and Keynsham railway stations and within 13 miles of the M5 and Bristol Airport. Bath is only nine miles away while Bristol is a 12-mile drive. Visit the development at Brookside Drive, Farmborough, Bath BA2 0AX on Monday from 11am to 5pm, and from Thursday to Sunday, from 10am to 5pm.
