Impressive Show Home now Open at Butterfields

Leading developer Westleigh has opened the doors to an elegant new show home at its Butterfields development in Northampton, which will give potential buyers a chance to envisage how their new home could look.

There has already been high demand at the development off Booth Lane South, with 14 of the 18 homes initially made available in the first phase having now been reserved.

The show home, a four bedroom Buttermere style property, showcases the best in modern family living. A ground floor entrance hall leads on to a sizeable dual aspect living room, with French doors leading into the garden. A spacious, open-plan kitchen-diner offers the perfect setting for getting the family together, and the ground floor also offers an additional sitting room, alongside a separate utility room and cloakroom.

Upstairs, four generously proportioned bedrooms, three of which are doubles, ensure everyone has ample personal space in which to unwind. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and a separate family bathroom is also included.

Robert Orr, Sales & Marketing Manager at Westleigh Homes, said: “The Buttermere truly is an outstanding property, the kind of home that really captures the imagination.

“We had a successful weekend launch at the end of February and the show home is now open for viewings, so we’d encourage any potential buyers looking for some inspiration for their home search to come down to Butterfields.

“The marketing suite, where buyers can speak to our friendly sales advisers, discuss their home search and book a tour of the show home, is open daily. Currently available are three stylish four-bedroom family homes, on the market from £304,950.

“All three homes are also available through the Government’s Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, which allows buyers to secure their new home with a 5% deposit and mortgages from just 75%.”
