No need to buy a fixer-upper - Find your new dream home at New Acres


Each year, National DIY Day provides an opportunity for home owners to pull out their tool kits and carry out essential home improvements, however, what happens when DIY jobs don’t go as originally planned? At Lovell’s New Acres development in Carlisle, buyers can personalise their home before they move in, meaning they can avoid the later hassle and expense of DIY. With National DIY Day fast approaching on Saturday 6 April, Lovell Homes has pulled together its top reasons to down the tools and buy a new home at its award-winning New Acres development instead:

It’s all in the detail
Lovell’s Inspirations range at New Acres offers an unrivalled number of personalisation features at different stages of the build. For buyers getting in right at the start of their home’s construction, a full range is available, including specifying electrical items, extra power points and ceiling points, choosing wall and floor tiles and plumbing options. For those further into their home’s journey, there are still plenty of options to choose from including kitchen upgrades, tiles, fitted wardrobes, carpets, light fittings and alarms. The earlier in the build you reserve your new home, the more personalisation you’ll be able to build in. And with beautiful show homes available to view at New Acres, buyers can find the interior inspiration they need to decorate their new home to their personal taste.

No pain for the gain
According to the latest annual figures* released by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), 3,391 people were admitted to hospital after being injured in accidents involving ‘non-powered’ hand tools and there were also 4,648 hospital admissions among people injured in accidents involving other powered hand tools and household machinery. Purchasing a new home will avoid all this hassle and heartache as your home will be in tip-top condition with no need to spend additional costs on renovations.

Building Quality
You can strip it, fill it, sand it and paint it and it still won’t be as good as new. Lovell homes are designed to the highest standards expected of modern living and our two year new home warranty as well as the NHBC’s 10 year Buildmark warranty are designed to give home owners peace of mind.

About New Acres
The final phase of homes at New Acres has now been released offering an excellent opportunity for first time buyers to get on the property ladder, including the 2-bedroom Singleton available from £120,500.

The government’s Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme is available on homes at New Acres, meaning the homeowner requires just a 5% deposit alongside a mortgage for 75% of the property value with the government then providing an equity loan to cover the remaining 20%, which is interest free for five years.

Highly Commended at 2018’s prestigious First Time Buyer Awards, all properties on this final phase of New Acres feature the same high quality specification and finishes that come as standard in Lovell Homes, including spacious kitchen layouts, luxury en-suite bathrooms and off-road parking.

To experience the specification and build quality first hand, visit the New Acres show homes at Dalton Avenue, Carlisle, CA2 7DX or for more information call 01228 371 670 or visit
