Downsize but upgrade in Market Harborough

Downsizers looking for a quality new home that offers ease of living could find that a move to Rockingham View in Market Harborough is on the level.

That rarest of new-build property – the bungalow – is among the new homes currently available.

More than half of homeowners planning to sell their home in the next three years say they’d like to move to a smaller property. But while the latest Downsizers Report from Lloyds Bank says moving to a bungalow is the most common preference, this style of property accounts for just 1 percent of homes built last year.

Tonia Tyler, sales director for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), said:

“People thinking of downsizing often imagine themselves living in a bungalow. But the reality is that they’re in short supply and new build properties in this style are particularly rare. The good news for Leicestershire buyers is that we have semi-detached bungalows available at Rockingham View in Market Harborough, including some that are ready to move into.

“We’ll even help homeowners sell up and move on with our Mastermove service. Customers who sign up for Mastermove will have their property valued and, once a selling price is agreed, we will instruct an estate agent to market the property on their behalf. Crucially, we will keep in regular contact with all parties to ensure the sales process runs quickly and smoothly.”

Available from £194,950, the Arden is a surprisingly spacious property with a good sized lounge, separate kitchen, two well-proportioned bedrooms and a stylish bathroom.

Inside, all of the homes at Rockingham View enjoy a high specification as standard, including well equipped kitchens, stylish bathrooms and energy efficient heating systems.

Tonia adds:

“The beauty of buying a brand new home is that there’s no need to worry about repairs or renovations

“Plus, those who downsize from a draughty older property that’s too large for their needs should find that they save on their energy bills.”

Located in Glebe Road, Market Harborough, little more than half a mile from the town’s Sainsbury and Waitrose supermarkets, Rockingham View is ideally placed. The local train station is just a short drive from the development, offering 35 trains a day to London every weekday with journey times from 61 minutes.
