Taking place between 15th – 22nd May 2017, the Home Builder’s Federation (HBF) is running New Homes Week to highlight the advantages of buying new. Recent research carried out by the HBF has found that the cost of upgrading an older property to the same standard as a new build home could be as much as £50,000. Award winning developer, Millwood Designer Homes is launching an exclusive collection of five houses at Hops End in the picturesque village of Puttenham, Surrey on Saturday 20th May to celebrate New Homes Week and provide buyers with a great opportunity to buy a stunning new home.
The figure of £50,000 is the total amount an owner of a new build home would be faced with spending in order to have features such as better insulation, guttering, new integrated kitchen appliances and new central heating, compared to when buying a new home where they come as standard! Millwood also offer homeowners peace of mind with a dedicated Customer Aftercare Service available for two years from the day you move into the property and a 10 year Premier Guarantee protecting buyers from liability on structural problems.
Comprising a range of 4 and 5 bedroom detached and semi-detached properties, the new homes at Hops End have been crafted with the highest attention to detail, to blend seamlessly with the local architecture and surrounding fields of hops; lending inspiration to the name.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “We are very much looking forward to the launch of Hops End during New Homes Week. Wherever possible, we believe that awareness should be spread among the public surrounding the benefits new build homes. At Millwood, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful new developments that complement their countryside surroundings and believe Hops End perfectly showcases this.”
Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation, said: “Buying a new build home offers a huge amount of benefits for the customer. Whether that’s the service and support you’ll receive from dealing with highly trained sales staff, to getting the benefit of living in a brand-new home with the latest in energy efficiency technology and building techniques. This research helps to highlight the hidden savings that buyers of new build homes save when choosing brand new over an existing home. And while most people will have a budget put aside to get the little jobs done, the costs clearly add up. £50,000 is a lot of money by anyone’s standards, and this year for New Homes Week we really want to drive home just how much new build home buyers get for their money.”
Each property offers open plan living and kitchen areas, ideal for families. Kitchens are fully equipped with comprehensive range of wall and floor cabinets with Quartz worktops and integrated appliances, such as an electric oven, combi microwave oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a washer/dryer. Spacious master bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes and a contemporary en-suite bathroom, complete with stylish white and chrome fittings.
