Traditional new homes to launch in Widnes next weekend

A collection of traditionally styled new homes will go on sale in Widnes next weekend (April 14 / 15) when Redrow launches its New Heritage Collection in the town.

The award-winning housebuilder is launching sales at Barrow’s Green and visitors to the new marketing suite can view plans for the development and speak to Redrow’s team of sales consultants.

Located off Barrow’s Green Lane, the new venture will feature a mix of two, three and four-bedroom arts and crafts inspired homes.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “This will be the first chance for homebuyers to get a glimpse of the new homes planned for Barrow’s Green. Those who reserve early will get their pick of the plots on the development at pre-show home prices. We’re anticipating that the development will be very popular with families as it’s our first New Heritage Collection development in Widnes and offers something new.”

Prices will be released at the launch event. Show homes will then open in the summer. For potential purchasers who are keen to secure their spot now, they can see the high specification interiors on offer at other developments across the North West and North Wales.

Already popular at locations across the region, The New Heritage Collection is a premium housing product with more than a hint of nostalgia in its exterior design, but boasting an interior specification to meet the needs of modern lifestyles.

Redrow is also one of the first developers to offer the Government backed NewBuy initiative across its developments in England, and it will be available at Barrow’s Green.

Designed to kick-start the housing market by underwriting mortgages up to 95% of the property’s value at competitive interest rates, NewBuy will be available to customers spending up to £500,000 on a newly built home, whether they’re a first time buyer or already own a house.

Anita added: “NewBuy will help people who want to take their first step onto the property ladder as well as those who already own a home but are looking to ‘trade up’.”

Lenders participating in the scheme will provide a 90-95% mortgage for buyers who meet their qualifying criteria; the lenders will be protected by a mortgage indemnity guarantee (MIG) jointly funded by Redrow and the Government.

Situated on the former Barrow’s Green Farm, on the north east edge of Widnes, Barrow’s Green is ideally located for commuters as it just a few minutes’ drive from the M62 for quick and easy access to Liverpool and Manchester. The nearby town of Warrington is also easily reached.

Widnes itself offers a wide variety of leisure and shopping facilities as well as local parks offering families plenty of open space. Widnes Shopping Park is nearby and host to many well known retails outlets. A new multi-screen cinema complex has recently opened in the town and a new 24-hour Tesco Extra superstore is due to open on March 26.

Everyone is welcome to attend the launch event at the Barrow’s Green marketing suite, off Barrow’s Green Lane on Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15 between 10am and 5.30pm. To find out more go online at
