A recent survey of 2,000 homebuyers by Which? found that nearly a third of all property purchases fall through. With one in five failed deals caused by property chain collapses, and an average loss of £2,899, savvy buyers are increasingly interested in new developments available on a part exchange basis, such as Bellway’s beautiful Avellana Place in Colchester, Essex. Offering a range of stylish, spacious homes, the development is perfect for large families who want to take their next step up the ladder and avoid the typical stresses associated with buying and moving house.

Understanding the time and effort it takes for property owners to sell their home, Bellway is offering its free Part Exchange package at Avellana Place, designed by experts to help make buying and moving simple and painless. Part Exchange enables homeowners to trade in their home as part payment for a new build property bought from Bellway, helping buyers significantly reduce the stress of purchasing their new home. This means there is no risk of a property chain collapsing, and no estate agency or advertising fees to pay. Bellway offers a fair price for purchasers’ existing homes, based on an independent valuation, and buyers can stay in their home until the new house is ready.

Gemma Bannister, Divisional Sales Manager at Bellway Essex comments: “At Bellway, we want to make the experience of looking for a new home as enjoyable and straightforward as possible. Finding a new home may be easy, but the disappointment when one tiny detail causes the process to fall through can be crushing, especially if that means you ultimately miss out on your dream home.

“By providing buyers with a variety of traditional properties, and a scheme to take away the uncertainty of the moving process, we are pleased to offer an excellent experience when buying and moving with Bellway. Moving with a family can be stressful enough, so we are pleased to offer this lifeline to families looking to purchase one of our beautiful family homes at Avellana Place.”

A prime example of the homes available at Avellana Place is the Eaton house type. Thoughtfully designed with family life in mind, each property is finished to the highest standard. Generously sized, the detached homes are set over three floors, ensuring every family member has their own space.

On the ground floor is a modern, open-plan kitchen and family room with contemporary fitted units and integrated appliances including an AEG double oven, gas hob, cooker hood, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Double doors leading into the rear garden make this room perfect for spending time as a family all year round, while the separate living and dining rooms are ideal for entertaining guests.

The master bedroom provides an oasis of calm for busy parents, boasting a dressing area with fitted wardrobes, as well as an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom two also has its own shower room, while the remaining bedrooms are served by the contemporary family bathroom on the third floor. All bathrooms feature white sanitaryware, wall tiling and high quality chrome-finish brassware.

The stunning homes are conveniently situated within easy reach of Colchester’s bustling town centre, which offers a mixture of well-known high street retailers, independent boutiques, market stalls and high-end brands. One of the town’s main attractions is its green spaces, and Avellana Place is just a five-minute drive from the beautiful High Woods Country Park, which is an unbeatable picnic spot.

Avellana Place residents will be delighted by the wide selection of well-regarded schools in Colchester. There are a number of good primary schools in the immediate area, and two of the top performing selective grammar schools in the country are within 15 minutes of the development. Children are similarly well catered for outside term time, with a variety of fun attractions including Colchester Zoo, Colchester Castle and the surrounding Castle Park, and the Mercury Theatre.

By road, the A12 is easily accessible for connections to London and the M25 for journeys further afield. Stansted Airport is also close by, just over 35 miles from the development.
