Potential buyers urged to view now and move in before summer

CGI of Buchanan Estates in Acklington

There is only one home remaining now at Southfields, the popular Buchanan Estates residential development at Acklington. The other fifteen properties are now sold.

The final property, the Alnwick at plot 15 is ready to move into and with the warmer weather on its way and an assisted move scheme offered for anyone living in the Northumberland or Tyneside area, potential buyers are being encouraged to make an appointment to view without delay.

The Alnwick is a two-storey 4-bedroom semi-detached house with lounge, kitchen, utility, WC and integral garage plus a first-floor bathroom and en-suite master bedroom. Its gross internal area is 1,336 sq ft (124.10 sqm).

The house comes with a good-sized garden and is priced at £350,000 ready for a quick sale.

Commenting on the success of Southfields, sales executive, Lynn Grant of WalkersXchange, agent for the scheme, said: “We are very pleased with the way things have gone at Southfields. The scale of the development, built in a courtyard style, is just one of the reasons it has been so sought-after. It is a small, niche development and a very friendly place to live.

“With the warmer weather coming and a couple of bank holidays ahead of us, we are expecting renewed enthusiasm from the market and a growing interest in this final home as people start thinking about making a move to the seaside or countryside. In this case, you can have the best of both worlds as it is a wonderful location with great transport links.

“This is a four-bedroom property with a host of added value features – including bi-fold doors to the rear garden from the dining-kitchen area, which creates a perfect large, airy space for everyday living, especially if you have young children. There is also a useful utility room off the kitchen, which for a family, is a handy space for keeping laundry out of sight, but I think the main thing about this house is its spaciousness - three of the bedrooms are big enough for a double bed and the fourth bedroom would make a perfect home office if not needed as a bedroom.

“It’s a lot of house for the money. I would urge anyone looking for a good value and well-designed home in this part of the world to book an appointment with us for a walk around the development and Plot 15. What’s more, buyers could be moved in by the start of the summer holidays either with our assisted move scheme if they are local, or if they have already sold and are free to move.

“Anyone who would like to find out more or arrange a personal viewing should contact WalkersXChange. There’s also plenty of useful information on the website.”

Developed by Buchanan Estates and built as a joint venture with local building contractor, Surgo Construction, with its established reputation for quality, reliability and craftsmanship, the properties have been constructed to an extremely high standard and without exception, buyers have been delighted by their new homes.

Lynn continued: “Several buyers have come from outside the area from places such as Kent, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and the Midlands. They tell us that they have been to the region on holiday, loved what they saw and wanted to retire here. They love the location which is ideal for those who want to be near the sea or seek a more rural lifestyle with the amenities of a larger town, such as Alnwick or Rothbury, just a short drive away.”
