Glastonbury Nub News is delighted to be working with Elan Homes to bring you updates about the house-builder's new Avalon development.

Smart-thinking homebuyers are flocking to Glastonbury to make the most of the advantages of buying a brand-new property off-plan.

Elan Homes will unveil a show home at the premium homes collection off Old Wells Road at the weekend (August 7), but canny buyers have been quick off the mark to home in on its Avalon development set in the heart of the glorious Somerset countryside.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball says: "We know that Glastonbury is a huge draw for visitors, thanks to a certain music festival that usually takes place every year.

"But we are pleased to say that Avalon is attracting huge numbers of people at the moment. We've had scores of enquiries, leading us to release a number of homes for sale off-plan, before the show home is open and the vast majority of those have been reserved."

She adds: "Buying at such an early stage does mean that customers potentially have a greater selection of properties to choose from, but better still they get the chance to customise their home.

"When you reserve a home before it's physically built you can make it your own from the word go by selecting from a range of options and upgrades of kitchen finish, bathroom tiles, wardrobes and flooring.

"It's wonderful to be able to 'design' your own home and enjoy knowing that it's unique to you and everything you wanted."

The good news for aspiring first time buyers is that homes priced under £349,000 are eligible for the Government-backed Help to Buy equity loan scheme.

Designed to make homeownership easier to afford, it offers the chance to secure a new home with a five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is covered by an equity loan, which is interest free for five years.

Avalon will feature 42 homes for private sale including a mix of two to five-bedroom homes with terraced, semi-detached and detached designs.

There's also the chance for buyers to have VIP access by making 'early bird' reservations on properties not yet released for sale and which give them 'first refusal' on release.
