Innovative 'growing homes' unveiled by Explore Living.
Online PR News – 14-June-2010 – – Residential property developer explore living has introduced a ‘flexible space’ feature to some of its three bedroom Albany homes in New Meridian Village, part of its Ramsgate development. The concept has been designed to help those wishing to start a family enjoy more flexibility with the space in their home. The new houses allow them to change their living space in a way that suits them so they have additional sleeping or living areas as and when required. In each of the high specification homes, the large loft area can be transformed into a bedroom or extra living/play area with ease.
The Albany houses are spread over three floors featuring three bedrooms on the first floor and a high specification living area and kitchen on the ground floor. If desired, owners can extend the staircase up to the flexible space on the second floor, creating an additional room.
The houses do not suffer from squeaky floorboards and offer residents improved sound insulation due its innovative concrete floors. The high specification living areas feature pre-wiring for Sky+, ergonomically designed kitchen space and integrated appliances.
Talking about the new features, Explore Living’s Sales and Marketing Director John Inglis commented: “We chose to keep the loft space free and ready to convert for future use as it provides buyers with room to grow as their family grows. The flexible space has more than enough room for a range of uses whether it is an office for parents, playroom for the kids or a spare bedroom. New Meridian Village has proved to be a popular development with families and now we are offering even more choice giving buyers the chance to really personalise their house.
The expandable living space found in these homes is not the only innovative family friendly aspect of New Meridian Village; road layouts called ‘home zones’ have been designed to discourage speeding and excessive traffic – encouraging a safer more community oriented place to live.
First time buyers may be able to take advantage of Route 85, where a new home can be bought with an interest free 15% loan, which can be repaid either within 10 years or when the property is sold. Route 85 is subject to availability and terms and conditions.
New Meridian Village is located close to Ramsgate town centre, whilst the seafront, sports centre, and impressive marina are just a short distance away. Ramsgate railway station is only a short distance from the development providing access to London St Pancras in only 76 minutes. Prices for the three-bedroom Albany houses are £199,995.
