18th January 2017 Print

With January sales now in full-swing, retailers across the UK are expecting another extremely successful post-Christmas sales period. Shopaholics and bargain hunters looking to make the most of the January sales and seasonal bargains all year round, might need a brand new house to fill with their purchases. Essex shopaholics will feel right at home at Bellway’s new development, Evoke in Brentwood, Essex, which is less than 20 minutes from the renowned Westfield shopping centre in Stratford.

Evoke features a range of brand new one, two and three bedroom properties, which include apartments, houses and coach houses. The homes at Evoke will suit a variety of buyers, including first time buyers, investors and commuters, due to its close proximity to transport facilities, vibrant Brentwood nightlife, and an abundance of leisure and retail facilities.

Divisional Sales Manager for Bellway Essex, Gemma Bannister comments: “Millions of people enjoy the rush of January sales each year. At Evoke, residents will be so close to the fantastic facilities at Westfield that they won’t have to experience the hassle of a long journey home with any of their purchases. On the days where people might not have time to browse the hundreds of stores of Westfield, Baytree Shopping Centre in Brentwood is home to a great selection of independent stores. It’s typical for many people to move home in time for Christmas, or New Year, and Evoke is the perfect opportunity for a new start, with homes available to move in to from October.”
