First homes released at Ymyl Yr Afon now 50% sold!


The response from visitors has been amazing and reflects the careful planning and design which has gone into this development, resulting in stylish homes, built for modern living

Half of the first collection of homes released by leading developer Lovell at its brand-new Ymyl Yr Afon development have sold less than a week after the opening of the sales and marketing suite.

A fantastic response to the brand-new homes, situated in a picturesque spot between Merthyr Tydfil and Aberfan, saw prospective purchasers queued waiting for the doors to open.

With homes offering traditional style, modern comfort and energy efficiency combined with highly convenient transport connections, it’s unsurprising that buyers have acted quickly to secure a place in this highly desirable and well-located new community. Merthyr Vale railway station is only minutes from the development, providing train services to Merthyr Tydfil and Cardiff, while there are excellent road links to Cardiff, Newport, Abergavenny and Swansea.

Following a substantial number of enquiries prior to the launch, Lovell was expecting a positive response but says that demand has exceeded expectations:

“It’s been great to see so many people reserving their brand-new home at Ymyl Yr Afon,” says Lovell regional sales director Julie Bowen.

“We had an extremely busy launch weekend giving buyers their first opportunity to find out more about the tremendous quality of life available to them with a brand-new home at Ymyl Yr Afon - as well as take advantage of the chance to speak to an Independent Financial Advisor and find out about making their home move more affordable using the Help to Buy Wales* scheme.

“The response from visitors has been amazing and reflects the careful planning and design which has gone into this development, resulting in stylish homes, built for modern living. Our home types have something for a wide range of buyers, from families looking for more space to purchasers taking their first step on to the housing ladder.  With only a handful of homes still to be reserved from our first release of properties, the sales team would strongly urge anyone interested in securing a home at this attractive development to get in touch now - we don’t think they will be available for long!”

Following the success of the launch, Lovell currently has available for sale a small number of three-bedroom homes starting from £169,950.

Built and finished with Lovell’s trademark focus on quality, homes at Ymyl Yr Afon feature energy-efficient combination boilers and gas central heating systems, as well as super-modern Symphony fitted kitchens. Buyers can be reassured that properties come with a 10-year NHBC Warranty and the bonus of two years of emergency cover.

Lovell is working alongside Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council and Merthyr Tydfil Housing Association to create Ymyl Yr Afon as part of the transformation of the former Merthyr Vale Colliery site into a thriving new community. A major regeneration programme has included the construction of a new access road, Golwg yr Afon, and a brand-new primary school, Ynysowen Community Primary School, locally.

The Ymyl Yr Afon marketing suite at Golwg Yr Afon, Merthyr Vale, Merthyr Tydfil CF48 4RF is open from 10am to 4pm, seven days a week. For more information, please call the sales team on 01685 868 366.
