Find The Space Your Family Needs To Grow In A New Home In Staffordshire

SPACE-CRAVING families will find the room they want and need in a new home in Elford.

Seven Acres is a small-scale development from Elan Homes, offering everything from two-bedroom apartments, bungalows and family-sized homes.

The largest of these is the five-bedroom Lichfield. It offers 2,127 sq ft of carefully considered living space including three bathrooms, a study, with a wraparound garden accessible from both the lounge and open plan kitchen, dining and family room.

Expected to be ready to move into this autumn, the Lichfield is designed with modern living in mind.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “Tucked away in a quiet corner, overlooking public open space, the Lichfield is a substantial home that’s perfect for a growing family. We’ve thought who might want to live in property this size and the kind of layout they may want. The kitchen is a focal point for any family home and so we’ve created a combined kitchen, dining and family room. This multifunctional space offers somewhere parents can prepare meals while keeping an eye on little ones playing or doing their homework. It’s complemented by a separate lounge, with both of these rooms enjoying direct access to the garden via French doors. Again this is great for buyers with children as they can watch children playing outside from the inside. There’s also a study at the other end of the L-shaped hallway, providing somewhere quiet to work from home.

“The morning rush for the bathroom would be a thing of the past with a move to this home. Two of the five-bedrooms have an en-suite, leaving the family bathroom to serve the other three. One of the bedrooms even has its own door through to the family bathroom. Dressing areas feature to three of the bedrooms.”

The Lichfield is available from £895,000.

For those looking for somewhere smaller, there’s a choice of apartments and houses available, with prices from £199,995.

“Research by the HBF found that a new house is 64% more efficient than an older one with monthly energy bills of just £105. Over the course of a year, a new house is £2,200 cheaper to run than and older one and that’s not taking into account repairs and renovations those who buy a pre-owned property are likely to need to budget for,” Tracey added.

“Our new homes achieve a minimum EPC rating of B. This means they’re among the most efficient available and makes them eligible for green mortgages. These are available from selected lenders and tend to offer more favourable rates than some more traditional mortgages.”

Seven Acres is perfectly placed to give homebuyers the best of both worlds with easy access to city life while enjoying rural living with the community at its heart. It has a village hall, a historic pub – The Crown – and a sports field which hosts football and cricket matches.

Less than five miles away, on the outskirts of Tamworth is The Ventura Retail Park, offering stores including Sainsbury’s and Asda Supermarkets, a large Marks & Spencer, Next, and Boots; and in Lichfield there’s a range of shops, restaurants, and activities.

Ideal for commuters, Seven Acres is just four miles from the A38, and seven miles from the M6 toll road; with Trent Valley Station with links to Birmingham New Street and London Euston only four miles away.
