New homes in Formby

New Elan homes in Formby feature open plan layouts with well-equipped kitchens at their heart

AS the first residents begin moving into Formby’s latest housing development, the company behind the project is giving potential purchasers fresh inspiration with a new view home now open.

Situated off Lenton Avenue, The Dunes offers a choice of three and four-bedroom homes in a sought-after area, close to the beach, with easy access to the town centre and commuter links to Liverpool city centre.

Properties were initially sold “off plan”, before Elan Homes opened the doors to a four-bedroom Halstead show home. The homebuilder has just launched a new Palmerston view home to showcase the townhouses available.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, explained: “Six months on from the launch of The Dunes and we’re starting to welcome the first homeowners. It’s a real milestone as often once people start seeing homes occupied it creates a sense of urgency amongst potential purchasers.

“Now that building work has progressed we’ve opened a finished example of the Palmerston house type for viewing, giving buyers the chance to appreciate how a home set out over three floors could work for them.”

The Palmerston features a lounge to the front, with open plan kitchen, dining and family room to the rear.

Two bedrooms, and the family bathroom, are on the first floor, with the master bedroom and en-suite encompassing the entire top floor.

Current prices at The Dunes range from £339,995 to £639,995.

Elan is offering a choice of tailored move-making incentives including covering the cost of Stamp Duty or accepting a customer’s existing property in part-payment for a brand new home.

“Formby is somewhere people aspire to live and we want to help make that dream move a reality,” Marie adds.

“Homeowners could find that they’re able to move sooner rather than later and avoid being entangled in a chain with part-exchange. In simple terms, it means we will buy their home so they can buy one of ours. We’ll even pay for the survey and agent’s fees, plus they won’t have to move until their new home is ready.”

The Dunes, off Lenton Avenue, is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For the latest availability call 01704779364 or see www.elan-homes/
