The Richmond house style

Located in the catchment area for some of Wolverhampton’s top performing schools, new homes at Compton Park are ideally placed for buyers with children.

The exclusive Redrow development offers a choice of large and luxurious properties in a leafy location. With nearby playing parks and the Smestow Local Nature Reserve providing opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors close to home, they’re the ideal choice for those who want to raise a family away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said: “Compton Park is the perfect place to settle down and raise a family. The area is well served by schools, there are play parks nearby, plus the homes are spacious and designed for ease of living.

“We’ve thought carefully about who would want to live here and how they would use the space. We appreciate that as children grow older they want more privacy and spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, so where as some developers would have made the Richmond a five-bedroom, we’ve chosen to provide four more generously proportioned bedrooms. We’ve also tried to address the fact that teenagers can spend hours in the bathroom, by including not one but two en-suites which should help alleviate the morning rush for the family bathroom.”

The Richmond offers 2,030 square feet of well planned accommodation. At its heart is a cleverly designed open plan kitchen, dining and family area, which spans the entire width of the rear of the house. The kitchen takes centre stage with the dining area to one side and the family living space to the other.

“Whilst open plan in essence, there are clearly defined areas for different activities, which works well, and this sociable space is complemented by a separate lounge to the front of the property,” Pauline adds.

The kitchen itself is well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, plus tall cabinets and extra wide drawers with soft close finishes to stop little fingers getting trapped.

There’s also a utility room for the washer and dryer, a downstairs cloakroom and an integral double garage.

The Richmond at Compton Park is available from £479,995. What buyers may not realise is that Help to Buy equity loans are available on these substantial properties and could reduce the initial price of the Richmond to £383,996. The remaining 20% is covered by the equity loan, which is interest free for five years.

To be eligible for the scheme homeowners must have sold their current property subject to contract. Redrow can help with that too.

For a small deposit, Redrow’s Mastermove service can help customers secure a buyer for their existing home with the assistance of a tried and trusted agent. Once a sale is agreed, they will then be able to use Help to Buy to reduce the initial cost of a brand new home.
