A touch of Scandinavian style in North Cornelly

19th March 2008 Print
A touch of Scandinavian style in North Cornelly A stylish new show home created especially for first time buyers in North Cornelly has been styled by trendy Swedish store IKEA. The interior of Redrow’s new ‘Debut’ show home at Dôl Gorwel has been designed by the home furnishings’ giant, and as an added treat for cash-strapped first time buyers, customers moving in will receive £1,000 of IKEA vouchers to transform their new property into a dream home.

Prices of Redrow’s multi-award winning Debut range at Dôl Gorwel start from less than £70,000, if purchasers take advantage of the Easi-buy option to defer 10% of the initial purchase price. There’s also a single monthly service charge that covers gas, water and electricity bills as well as external maintenance, to make budgeting easy for first time home owners.

Rachael Davies, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Wales), said: “Having a beautifully decorated and furnished property to look around gives buyers the perfect opportunity to envisage themselves living in one of our sought-after Debut homes. IKEA have a similar young and fashionable customer profile to our Debut range and the clean-lined contemporary IKEA furniture and modern colour-scheme really shows off the interior to its full potential.

“Beautiful light greens, browns and creams were used to create a home that is both calming and contemporary. In the living area and bedroom, natural woods and accent tones contrast with glass and stainless steel furniture, to appeal to buyers looking for a chic home where they can relax or entertain friends.

“Debut is definitely a winning formula for people who otherwise could not afford to get onto the property ladder - and certainly not with an easy to maintain, brand new home and all the benefits that brings.”

A one-bedroom ‘D2’ property is priced from just £69,745 if purchasers take advantage of the Easi-buy option to defer 10% of the initial purchase price; they also get the reassurance of a 10-year National Housebuilding Council ‘Buildmark’ warranty. The monthly service charge makes it easy for buyers to budget for household bills – and even includes the window cleaning.

Debut properties are built to high quality standards, with sustainability and energy efficiency a key factor. Much of the cost-saving comes from the use of lightweight structural steel frame and other modern methods of construction, which speed up the build programme without compromising on quality.

Communal heating and hot water systems also bring cost savings, whilst replacing private gardens with contemporary shared outdoor space – looked after by Redrow’s own management company - means homes take up less land than conventional homes, whilst inspiring a sense of community.

The marketing suite and show home at Debut @ Dol Gorwel are open Thursday to Monday, 10am to 5.30pm. For more information, log on to
