Anyone looking to buy a new home at St. Modwen Homes’ Branston Leas development, located just two miles from Burton-on-Trent, is facing their last chance to purchase a new home in the first phase of the development and become part of the growing community.

Following above average sales since the beginning of the year, there are now just two homes remaining for sale in the first phase at Branston Leas and, with high demand from people in the local area, it’s not expected that they’ll be around for long.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “Our homes at Branston Leas have proven extremely popular amongst first time buyers and younger families, with more than 50% of our purchasers taking advantage of the 5% deposits available under Help to Buy.

“Our last two homes include the popular two bedroom Alban house which, with its double bedrooms and open plan living and dining room, makes the perfect starter home. What’s more, it offers a little bit of luxury too, with French doors leading out to the rear garden and a designer Moores kitchen fitted as standard.”

Prices for the Alban house start from just £149,995. Under Help to Buy scheme, purchasers will need a deposit of just £7,500 and a 75% mortgage, as the government will provide an equity loan to cover the remaining 20%.

Bev said: “There’s a great community atmosphere at Branston Leas, with residents making the most of the newly opened shops at Branston Square as well as helping to plant new trees in the 82 acre bluebell wood that is currently being delivered. Additionally, being located just off the A38, means homeowners have easy access to Derby and further afield.”

Branston Leas forms part of a larger regeneration project by St. Modwen which includes a collection of shops, car park and community garden being delivered at Branston Square, a new sports pavilion at Clays Lane Park, Burton Gateway business park and Branston Leas Wood which will boast in excess of 20,000 trees when complete and be part of The National Forest.

St. Modwen Homes is the housebuilding brand of St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist.

Following the success of the first phase at Branston Leas, St. Modwen Homes has begun construction on the second phase, which will deliver an additional 204 homes when complete.
