With property trends suggesting more homebuyers have energy efficiency in mind, Barratt Homes is offering just the ticket at its New Lubbesthorpe development in Leicester.

B&DWNM-9244 – A living room in a Faversham style property at New Lubbesthorpe in Leicester

As documented by Nationwide Building Society, behavioural shifts of homebuyers appear to be boosting house market activity and in a recent survey, it was found that 41% of people now want to improve energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint.

At Barratt Homes’ community on Tay Road, there is a selection of four bedroom, three storey Faversham style homes – all of which have been expertly designed to maintain energy efficiency.

The Faversham is a great option for growing families due to its generous but manageable layout. Fantastic offers are available on selected properties including a 5% deposit boost worth over £14,000, or upgraded kitchens with integrated appliances, flooring packages included and a contribution towards moving costs.

The leading developer builds its properties to be up to 65% more energy efficient than the same sized older house with modern day improvements.

Some of the key features include external cavity walls benefiting from heat-reflecting, low-emissive technology, whilst the roofs contain up to 400mm of mineral fibre insulation in the loft, to reduce heat escaping through the ceiling. Similarly, the double-glazed windows are filled with argon gas to reduce heat loss and have a special low-emissive coating to absorb heat from the sun.

Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We pride ourselves on building energy efficient, sustainable new homes and our selection of properties at New Lubbesthorpe is certainly no exception.

“The coldest part of the year is here and we’re encouraging keen homebuyers to consider the benefits of buying new by booking an appointment with our Sales Advisers.

“The location of New Lubbesthorpe ensures buyers can make the most of a wide range of amenities in Leicester.”

Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General and Glenfield Hospital are all within close proximity of the development, which is ideal for anyone looking to make the most of Barratt Homes’ NHS deposit contribution scheme; a boost of up to £15,000 towards a new home for NHS employees.

New Lubbesthorpe Primary School is also open onsite, giving parents with young children peace of mind knowing their children won’t have far to travel in the mornings.

Upsizers can take advantage of Barratt Homes’ bespoke Movemaker scheme, which offers a complimentary estate agency service with a free no obligation valuation on an existing home, and Barratt Homes will complete the Movemaker once a selling price has been agreed by the customer.

After 11 properties have sold in the past eight weeks, New Lubbesthorpe currently has a selection of four bedroom homes available with prices starting from £298,995.
