Energy efficient new homes in Earl Shilton

People in Leicestershire could beat rising fuel bills by moving from a drafty old home to a brand new one that’s easy to manage and efficient to run.

Designed to maximise efficiency and minimise waste, new Redrow homes at Rossendale Gardens in Earl Shilton are well insulated and include central heating and double glazing as standard.

Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), commented: “The cold snaps we’ve experienced this winter coupled with rising gas and electricity charges means that householders may be worried about hefty fuel bills as they struggle to keep warm. But because on average our new homes are 40% more energy efficient than properties built just 10 years ago, those who buy a property at Rossendale Gardens could find that they save money on heating.”

Inspired by the architecture of the Arts and Crafts movement, the homes boast the charm and character of ‘period’ properties but without the drawbacks of expensive repairs and maintenance.

Redrow has calculated that it could cost up to £30,000 to bring an older three-bedroom property up to the same high standard as one of its new homes. It means that in buying a brand new home you could save time and money.

“Buying a second hand property and renovating it yourself may sound appealing, but there’s lots of hard work and expense involved with little, if any, return for the time and money you invest. With a brand new Redrow home you won’t have to worry about inheriting someone else’s decor or DIY disasters, but will enjoy the peace of mind of a 10-year ‘Buildmark’ warranty,” Pauline commented.

Current availability at Rossendale Gardens includes a selection of two and three-bedroom homes. The three-bedroom ‘Kenilworth’, on the market at £154,995, is set out over three floors with an impressive master bedroom and en-suite on the top floor.

All of the homes boast convivial open-plan layouts with combined kitchen-diners fitted with fashionable floor to ceiling units and extra wide drawers offering plenty of storage, plus the convenience of integrated top brand name appliances. Sleek modern bathrooms and en-suites enjoy quality fixtures and fittings with an exclusive tile range.

Close to Earl Shilton town centre, Rossendale Gardens enjoys easy access to Leicester, Hinckley and Nuneaton.
