THINGS are looking up for home buyers in Wombourne keen to reduce their impact on the planet.

Elan Homes, the company behind the regeneration of a former industrial site in the Staffordshire village, is keen to make good use of the land available. A third of the homes for sale at the Woottonbrook development will be set out over three floors, offering a spacious solution to modern family living.

Plus, with a host of energy efficient features in all of the homes, buyers could save money while helping save the planet.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball explained: “There’s been a real shift in mindsets with people looking for new ways to change their lifestyle to reduce their carbon footprint by becoming more sustainable in everything they do.

“At Elan we aim to balance the need for housing with making best use of the land available. Woottonbrook is a prime example of this as we’re transforming a former industrial site to provide much-needed new homes. Building up instead of out means we’ve been able to maximise the potential of the land. And, in doing so, we’re providing family sized homes on a smaller footprint than if we were building traditional two-storey homes.

“Because townhouses use less land, they offer excellent value for money compared with similar-sized homes set out over two floors. Plus it’s well documented that new build homes are well insulated, with energy efficient heating systems and appliances included as standard, making them kinder to the environment and potentially cheaper to run.”

Among the homes available at Wootton Brook, on Giggetty Lane, is the three-bedroom Stonall. Priced from £349,000, it offers 1,220 sq ft of living space, set out over three floors.

On the ground floor, there’s an inviting lounge with feature bay window at the front; with an open plan kitchen and dining room offering direct access to the rear garden via French doors.

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

Currently available “off plan”, homes at Woottonbrook enjoy a village setting, close to the countryside, with the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal running alongside the development. Wom Brook Local Nature Reserve offers the chance to enjoy the outdoors close to home.

The village is home to a selection of independent shops, while Wolverhampton, Dudley and Stourbridge all within easy reach.

Homes at Woottonbrook are currently available to reserve off plan, by appointment only. For more information, including the latest availability and pricing, see https://www.elan-homes.co.uk/developments/woottonbrook.
