Tamworth buyers are green with envy

Redrow’s Amington Garden Village

The grass is always greener on the other side and with even more to see at Amington Garden Village that’s sure to be the case for Tamworth house hunters.

Work on the landmark new community is progressing well with two more Redrow show homes now open at the Amington Green phase in addition to the four that have been wowing visitors to Amington Fairway since the summer.

Combining traditional Arts & Crafts inspired architecture with interiors designed with how real families live today, Redrow’s Heritage Collection homes offer the best of old and new.

Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), explains: “It’s almost six months since we launched Amington Garden Village, a flagship scheme to create hundreds of much-needed new homes in Tamworth. It wouldn’t be practical to have a show home for every property style we’re building but with six professionally styled and fully furnished examples available to view, buyers can gain a real insight as to what it could be like to live in a brand new Redrow home.”

The new show homes at Amington Green are an Oxford Lifestyle, a surprisingly spacious home with all three bedrooms boasting an en-suite, and a four-bedroom Shrewsbury style property. Both are detached designs.

“At Amington Fairway the show homes are very much designed with family living in mind, but we also recognise that there’s a demand from the over 55 market including downsizers or rightsizers as we prefer to call them,” Pauline adds.

“Not everyone whose children have flown the nest will want a smaller home, they might just want a property that’s easier to manage and more in keeping with their lifestyle. Our research has revealed a growing number of people don’t necessarily want lots of bedrooms but bigger bedrooms and well planned living space. The Oxford Lifestyle at Amington Fairway is a prime example as all of the bedrooms have an en-suite with the master also featuring a dressing area; while downstairs there’s an inviting and sociable open plan kitchen and dining room, with adjoining utility, complemented by separate lounge with feature bay window.”

The ground floor of the Shrewsbury is similar in that there’s a combined kitchen and dining room, with handy utility and cloakroom to the rear of the property, and lounge at the front. Journey upstairs and there are four bedrooms, including master with en-suite, plus the family bathroom.

Along with building new homes on the former golf course site, Redrow will invest around £14 million to help ensure Amington Garden Village is sustainable for the benefit of the wider community. This includes contributions towards the cost of building a new primary school, creating a new community woodland, extending the Hodge Lane Local Nature Reserve and funding improvements to sports facilities.
