High efficiency home proves to be a winner

Valerie and Gerard Harwood have downsized from a three bedroom home in High Hewarth to a two bedroom home at Bellway’s Glenside View development in Chester-le-Street and like a good diet feel all the better for it.

“Our family have flown the nest and we did not need all the space of the old home, but importantly for us we were moving to a far more efficient home. Our old home was 40 years old and clearly the quality of building and insulation standards not to mention far more efficient heating systems are now common place and we wanted to take advantage of the benefits a new home would offer us,” said Gerard.

Valerie and Gerard bought a two bedroom Stanford mid terrace home and moved into their new home in January.

Dave Meacham, sales manager at Bellway, said: “Valerie and Gerard will enjoy substantially lower utility bills in their new home which at a time when utility bills are rising is an important feature to consider when moving home. Since they bought their old home the building regulations have been updated considerably which means that there new home will benefit from added insulation in the walls and loft and all windows are double glazed, plus today’s homes are subject to air leakage tests to ensure that heat is not lost and the home is as efficient as possible.”

Situated at Pelton Fell near Chester-le-Street, Glenside View has proved a popular location for house hunters who want good access to local transport routes and door step amenities. Bellway has a range of three and four bedroom homes available in detached and semi-detached styles starting in price from £147,000.

To assist buyers moving to Glenside View, Bellway can offer part exchange arrangements to existing home owners, it can also offer the low deposit New Buy scheme where buyers are able to take advantage of a 5% deposit and 95% mortgage, Bellway also has special offers available to members of the emergency services and armed forces.
