With new build homes typically more energy efficient than equivalent older properties, Savills has estimated that the average new build could potentially save owners £4,900 in energy bills over five years following the price rises expected in October 2022. For buyers looking to enjoy all the benefits of new build living, St Arthur Homes has recently launched its second, and final, phase of Shared Ownership homes at Lancaster Park. Located in the picturesque market town of West Malling in Kent, buyers here can enjoy all the perks of a contemporary home, whilst enjoying an idyllic country setting imbued with charming historic architecture.

Hosting a collection of 12 two and three-bedroom houses, the modern homes at Lancaster Park are ideal for first-time buyers or families looking for a home with the flexibility to meet 21st century needs. Kitchens boast plentiful storage, sleek laminate worktops, and a range of high-quality, integrated appliances. Spacious bedrooms come complete with soft carpeting throughout, with primary bedrooms also enjoying the added benefit of fitted wardrobes. Contemporary bathrooms combine white sanitaryware with chrome fittings. A rear garden to each home provides a private retreat or additional space to host family and friends. Ideal for those who need to commute by road or explore the area by car, each home also comes with two allocated parking spaces.

Louise Mills, Sales & Marketing Director for St Arthur Homes, comments: “We are thrilled to have launched our final phase of homes at Lancaster Park. Redefining country living with a modern twist, these new build homes are perfectly located for easy access to both town and countryside. With homes in the first phase at Lancaster Park proving to be incredibly popular, prospective buyers should register their interest as soon as possible to avoid missing out on these final homes.”
