Buyers snap up new homes in Oakdale

New Redrow homes are proving a hit with buyers in Wales, where a lack of stock is said to be limiting activity on the housing market.

Experts from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors* revealed that the Welsh market was positive in November but found there was a lack of new homes coming on to the market.

Luly Brice, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Wales), said: “Surveyors in Wales noted that confidence in the housing market was showing signs of improvement in the latter part of 2009 and that is certainly borne true with sales of Redrow’s new homes at Sirhowy Gardens.

“We only launched the venture in October and have already sold five homes. The initial success of Sirhowy Gardens truly is testament to the quality of the workmanship that buyers have come to expect from a brand new Redrow home.”

Halifax**, one of the country’s biggest mortgage lenders, reported that house prices rose by 1.4% in November – the fifth consecutive monthly increase.

“As the housing market begins to show signs of recovery now could be the time to invest in a new home as there’s the potential for the value of your investment to increase – even before you move in,” Luly said.

Sirhowy Gardens features a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments, tastefully blended with two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Properties currently available include the stylish three-bedroom ‘Idwel’ housetype pried from £174,995 and a choice of four-bedroom homes priced from £199,995 for the ‘Filton’, £224,995 for the ‘Kegworth’ and £277,995 for the ‘Kelsall’.

“Redrow recognises that the hub of any household is the kitchen and with that in mind many of our homes feature open plan kitchen and dining rooms, providing families with a dedicated place where they can spend quality time together,” Luly commented.

“And for those who want to relax in style and comfort the properties also boast a light and airy lounge.”

The homes at Sirhowy Gardens come complete with en-suite to the main bedroom, as well as a chic family bathroom with pristine white suite and quality fittings.

Beautifully situated in the Sirhowy Valley, the village of Oakdale is the perfect setting for an idyllic family life with good educational facilities nearby. Amenities include shops, restaurants, pubs and takeaways.
