The Orchards bears more fruit for home buyers

The Buckingham

Would-be owners of luxury homes at The Orchards, in Glenfield can now view another of the upmarket property designs.

In addition to the fully furnished Highgrove show home, Redrow has taken a Buckingham style five-bedroom home through to completion and fitted flooring and carpets throughout.

“It means that people interested in these homes now have two different styles to look around and appreciate the size and layout of the properties as well as the quality of our build, finish and specification,” said Pauline Turnbull, sales director of Redrow Homes (Midlands).

Redrow’s development in Waring Close offers rich pickings for discerning home buyers, featuring just 12 large and luxurious homes in one of Leicester’s most popular suburbs. Externally they’ve been influenced by the architecture of the Arts & Crafts era and are in keeping with existing properties in the neighbourhood, while inside they’re bright, modern and full of family-friendly features.

“Our show home has already wowed visitors and now they can see an alternative style of home with its own unique look and a different floorplan,” Pauline said.

“The Buckingham has a feature double height bay window with larch lap boarding above and has a combined kitchen, breakfast and family area at its heart. This room is a warm and welcoming living space where families can work, rest and play together, cooking, dining or simply relaxing. The adjoining utility room offers a convenient space that keeps the washer, dryer and boiler out of the kitchen and also offers internal access to the generous double garage.”

Raised ceiling heights help emphasise the light and airy nature of the Buckingham and other properties at The Orchards, while under-floor heating offers plenty of warmth. Kitchens boasts silestone work surfaces as standard and are well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, including oven, microwave, dishwasher, wine cooler and fridge / freezer; while floor to ceiling cabinets and extra wide drawers offer plenty of storage space.

All five bedrooms in the Buckingham are doubles and there are four en-suites as well as the family bathroom and ground floor cloakroom. All bathrooms are equipped with elegant Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, ceramic floor and wall tiles and high quality fixtures and fittings. The master en-suite is designed as a wet room.

Current prices for four and five-bedroom new homes at The Orchards range from £449,995 to £649,995, with the Buckingham available from £559,995.

“With such a small number of properties on this exclusive development our plan eventually is to have one of every design available for prospective purchasers to see inside,” Pauline added.

The leafy suburb of Glenfield offers excellent primary schools and good access to the M1/M69 for commuting.

To see inside the Buckingham or view the fully furnished Highgrove show home, visit The Orchards, open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm.
