Seaside homes which are more than just a flight of fancy

Many people dream of waking up to the calming sound of the waves, the ocean breeze and stunning sea-scape views.

And for those who wish to spread their wings, Redrow’s Harbour Village development in Fleetwood can make the dream more than just a flight of fancy.

Harbour Village is a very special development from award-winning housebuilder Redrow, with a collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes perched at the tip of the Fylde peninsula, adjacent to Fleetwood Harbour.

Right now, there are several fabulous contemporary properties overlooking the Wyre Estuary, including the developer’s four-bedroom Mallard and Redwing properties, together with the three-bedroom Whimbrel.

All of these beautiful properties offer modern, open plan living, perfect for families or professionals, as well as a separate lounge for those moments of peace and relaxation. The master bedrooms have the benefit of a luxury en-suite and – perfect for making the most of the splendid views offered – the homes feature large picture windows and beautiful balconies.

The quality homes have character by the bucket (and spade) load and you don’t have to shell out a fortune for a seaside home, with prices currently starting at £234,995 for an estuary facing four-bedroom Mallard style.

If simply being close to the seaside is enough, then home owners could pick up a more traditional looking, three-bedroom Heritage Collection home at Harbour Village for only £179,995. It may not have the direct waterfront views but it’s still part of the same enviable location.

And just imagine spending not just one week or two by the sea this summer, but every week and every month – all year round.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), said:

“Harbour Village is a beautiful location and ideal for those who dream of living by the sea.  There is a lot of interest and it is proving extremely popular.”

“The development is perfectly placed, not just because of its superb seaside location, but by virtue too of its proximity to the bright lights of Blackpool, as well as to north west cities like Preston and even Manchester. Commuting won’t be a hassle from here and yet none of these practical links will intrude on the peaceful pace of life promised.”

For those who may only have a small deposit, Help to Buy is available at Harbour Village. The Government-backed scheme allows purchasers to lay down a deposit of only 5 per cent and receive a 20 per cent equity loan that reduces the purchase price.

For example, using Help to Buy, the initial purchase price of the four-bedroom detached Mallard is reduced from £234,995 to only £187,996. The equity loan is interest free for five years, and can be repaid when more funds are available or the home owner comes to resell.

This coastal community has been carefully planned with a combination of Redrow’s Heritage Collection homes, combining authentic craftsmanship with modern interior designs; to the more contemporary-designed waterfront homes and affordable family living.

The development is also very close to Fleetwood’s popular Freeport outlet shopping village.
