Buying New Provides Blank Canvas for Bespoke Design

07.12.16

House buyers looking for their next home are becoming drawn to the idea of buying a new home in order to have a 'blank canvas', according to a new report out by the National House Building Council Foundation (NHBC). The survey of found homeowners want to be able to put their own stamp on their house, free from makeover or décor surprises left from previous homeowners.

Those looking to buy brand new should look to Bellway Homes' 'The Residence' in Vauxhall, where they can purchase a one, two or three-bedroom apartment in the heart of the Nine Elms regeneration project.

The development, in Ponton Road, consisting of an enviable collection of 510 new homes, is being built to a top-of-the-range specification, down to the last plug and will launch early next year. Those families, young professionals and investors interested in the development will also be able to add their own personal touch with Bellway's Bespoke Additions package, which includes options to add upgraded kitchen appliances, bathroom fittings, electrical benefits and extra aesthetic touches – creating a truly personalised home.

The NHBC report also shows that energy bills are expected to be £440 lower in new build one bedroom apartments than their second-hand counterparts for example, as better standards of installation enhance draught-proofing. At The Residence, home owners will benefit from a variety of measures to help energy efficiency, designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, including improved insulation, large windows for solar gain as well as support for community recycling and electric car charging points.

Emma Denton, Head of Sales at Bellway Thames Gateway, comments: “Buying a new build home at The Residence offers many more benefits than buying old. Not only do our new homes come with a high build quality and brand new fixtures and fittings, there are also lower running costs and a 10 year NHBC warranty to think of.

“Our apartments at The Residence are of a high specification that will really appeal to those looking for a new build home, saving them money and time because they will not have to do any DIY like they would with a resale.

“These apartments go on sale early next year and we urge anyone interested in buying off plan to register their interest with us now and become a part of the
Nine Elms community while putting their stamp on a new home.”

Situated close to Vauxhall, The Residence enjoys a fabulous location a stone's throw from the River Thames, enabling residents to enjoy the best of the capital. This exciting new development will also include 2,475m² of commercial space, to bring new retail and lifestyle amenities to the area, including an art gallery to fit with the history of the building – the development sits on what was once Christie's Auctioneers Fine Art storage warehouse.

Residents will also have the luxury of an on-site gym, cinema room, private function room and a concierge service.
