Showcase show home coming soon in Buntingford

Buyers in Buntingford are being urged not to wait for a show home to open before reserving a brand new home

Properties at The Maples are currently being sold ‘off plan’ via Keith Ian Estate Agents in the town. While some buyers have seized the opportunity to purchase in the development’s early stages, homebuilder Redrow has a growing list of people keenly awaiting the opening of the show home.

A professionally styled, fully furnished example of the five-bedroom Highgate is due to open from February 11. But the award-winning housebuilder is encouraging those thinking of buying one of its Heritage Collection homes not to wait.

Kerry McCoubrey, sales director for Redrow Homes (Eastern), explained: “Viewing a property remains an integral part of the buying process and so we appreciate that while some have had the confidence to buy ‘off plan’ others are waiting to see inside the show home at The Maples before making a commitment.  What they may not realise is that we have a database of hundreds of would-be homeowners and by waiting they could miss out on their preferred property. 

“We’re therefore encouraging people to talk to us so that we can guide them through the floor plans and help match them with the style of home that best suits their lifestyle. We also have six show homes from our Heritage Collection within 20 miles of Buntingford to give them an idea of the layouts, quality and finish they can expect.”

The Maples offers two, three, four and five-bedroom properties that combine the traditional Arts & Crafts inspired architecture with interiors designed to meet the demands of modern living.

Current prices start from £549,995 for a four-bedroom detached Cambridge style property.

Help to Buy equity loans are available on selected homes at The Maples.

Using the scheme, the initial price of the Cambridge is reduced to £439,996. The lower price includes a 5% customer deposit of £27,500 and a 75% mortgage for £412,496. The remaining £109,999 is covered by the equity loan.

The show home at The Maples is due to open from February 11. In the meantime, properties are available to reserve ‘off plan’ via Keith Ian Estate Agents in Buntingford.
