CHRISTMAS has come early for those looking for a new home in Ross on Wye with Edenstone gifting buyers a package of incentives to help them move before Santa’s arrival.

A small number of properties at the Edenstone Group’s popular St Mary’s Garden Village are almost complete, with the chance to celebrate the festive season in the style and comfort of a new build home in Ross on Wye.

To wrap up a move this side of Christmas, buyers could only need a 5% deposit. The homebuilder is offering the gift of Stamp Duty paid – potentially worth more than £12.500 – plus, the company will cover legal fees, include flooring throughout the property and turf  the rear garden. If that wasn’t enough, Edenstone will also provide £3,000 for buyers to spend as they choose.

Sales director Adele McCoy said: “There’s no time like the present to buy a new home. We’re seeing some lenders reducing their interest rates on mortgages and the choice of mortgage products available is increasing. With the chance to wrap up a move this side of Christmas those who act now could enjoy a warmer winter in an energy efficient home. We’re playing Santa with our seasonal incentive, which could save buyers thousands of pounds.

The homes in Ross on Wye ready in time for Santa to visit include two-bedroom Ashmore style properties and a four-bedroom Monmouth and Tenbury house types.

From the outside, thanks to its Tudor-style façade, the Monmouth looks traditional.

Inside, the double fronted property has a spacious layout designed for modern living. There’s a lounge at the front, with a dedicated study on the opposite side of the hallway. A convivial open plan kitchen, dining and family room, overlooks the garden. A utility room and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor.

Upstairs the main bedroom benefits a dressing room and en-suite, with the large family bathroom serving the remaining three bedrooms.

The Monmouth is available from £499,995. The Stamp Duty saving on this property amount to almost £12,500.

“The Monmouth lends itself well to hosting a festive family feast for the extended family. Guests could gather in the lounge while Christmas dinner is prepared and the pans and oven trays hidden away in the utility, before gathering round the table to tuck in to turkey and all the trimmings,” Adele added.

Priced from £250,000, the Ashmore is well-suited to first time buyers and downsizers alike.

“Imagine the excitement of spending your first Christmas in your first home – a magical experience even Santa would be pressed to beat,” Adele added. “It’s perhaps the best gift you could ever give yourself.”

The ground floor of the Andover is almost entirely open plan, with combined lounge, kitchen and dining room to make the most of the space. There’s also a convenient cloakroom.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

All homes at St Mary’s Garden Village achieve an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating of B with the potential to reduce energy consumption and running costs.
