Barratt Homes North Midlands has revealed a rise in demand for apartments at its Leicester development New Lubbesthorpe and is urging first time buyers and downsizers to act quickly to avoid missing out on their dream home.

The housebuilder has recognised the growing need for apartments at its development – as the popularity of them continues to increase – and is expertly crafting a range of two bedroom apartments on the second phase from just £194,995.

Located on Beggars Lane, the newest phase of homes offers a broad range of two bedroom apartments, as well as two, three and four bedroom homes, in a community encompassing 75 acres of new woodland and 250 acres of open space, whilst providing an array of nearby amenities and strong links to the city centre.

Excellent offers are available on selected apartments such as integrated kitchen appliances, upgraded bathrooms and flooring included throughout; ensuring homebuyers can make great savings on a new property.

Help to Buy is also a valuable option for prospective buyers, allowing them to secure a new home with just a 5% deposit.

First time buyers can take comfort in knowing they have no Stamp Duty fees to pay on properties up to the value of £300,000, making the purchasing and moving experience a much swifter process.

Leicestershire homebuyers who are interested in the quality homes are advised to visit the development to find out more information about how to progress on the property ladder.

Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “There are many advantages to apartment living and we are seeing a rise in the number of buyers who are benefitting from these.

“Apartments as a whole are becoming more in-demand with buyers because they are well suited to a range of different lifestyles and customers.

“New Lubbesthorpe is a thriving new community and offering the best of both worlds with desirable rural spaces and nearby city conveniences.”

Situated to the west of Leicester, New Lubbesthorpe offers a retreat to the countryside whilst being just a five mile drive from the city centre.

The development will feature two new primary schools and a secondary school, giving growing families the perfect place to settle down.

For working professionals, in addition to the easy access to Leicester city centre, homebuyers can benefit from the nearby M1 and M69 and Leicester Train Station, connecting them to the surrounding areas of Derby, Nottingham, Loughborough, Sheffield and London.

Leicester offers a range of leisure facilities such as high street shops, bars and restaurants, whilst residents can enjoy being part of one of the UK’s sporting capitals with the city hosting champion sports teams including Leicester City Football Club, the Leicester Tigers and the Leicester Riders.
