There are many reasons that older homeowners decide to move house. Many last-time-buyers wish to downsize, releasing equity to fund retirement, whilst others are motivated by the lower running costs of a smaller home. For mature homeowners with mobility issues, single-story homes become increasingly attractive.
These are just a few of the reasons why Blunsdon Abbey Park in North Swindon has proved so popular with new residents. Nestled in the conservation area of Blunsdon St Andrew, the park caters exclusively for residents aged over 50, offering a wide selection of contemporary bungalow-style homes. Situated within the historic grounds of Blunsdon Abbey House, amongst the remains of the original building which burnt down in 1904, the park boasts views over Swindon towards the hills of Liddington Castle and is delightfully landscaped to fit in with the simple beauty of the Abbey.
The latest phase of homes is Abbey View - a new development of eight single-storey homes. These luxurious, but affordable properties have proved exceptionally popular, with over half of the plots having already been reserved and happy new residents now moving in.
"The quiet surroundings of Blunsdon Abbey Park is a hugely attractive feature for those looking forward to retirement and seeking a hassle-free lifestyle,” commented Sales Manager, Helen Ford. “There has been an identifiable buzz and excitement about Abbey View, so I would encourage anyone planning to downsize to come along to our Open House event on Sunday 21st August from 10am, when visitors can explore our homes and be inspired by the thought of moving to our friendly over-50s community”.
“With no stamp duty to pay on these homes, there is an even bigger incentive for those over 50 considering moving to the park”, Helen added.
Currently available for reservation is 6 Abbey View, a beautifully laid out Tingdene Barnwell home, which at just £235,000, proves outstanding value. With large box bay windows and low maintenance 'Canexcel' exterior cladding, the home provides real street appeal. Just as impressive inside is the spacious master suite and contemporary fitted kitchen. Available for immediate occupation, the home comes with a sunny private garden, an adjacent garage with power and lighting and a block paved driveway.
