As well as unveiling homes at Stephenson Grange, a mortgage adviser on hand at the event to answer finance questions...

Lovell Homes has launched its newest Eastern development named Stephenson Grange through an online event that answered the top questions relating to mortgages as well as giving a virtual taste of life in the village of Holmewood, located near Derbyshire’s Peak District.

The brand-new development, that will provide a mixture of affordable and luxury homes and was revealed in a different format compared to the usual in-person launches, giving Chesterfield house-hunters a unique perspective and the chance to find out everything there is to know about mortgages as well as the new selection of homes to consider.

Prospective purchasers tuned in to the Lovell Homes Instagram channel (@lovell_homes) for exclusive access to a simple buyers guide, which is now available to view on demand here, with expert advice from Mortgage Pathways.

Chesterfield-local Joanne James, who is also the new sales executive at Stephenson Grange, used the launch to give viewers a realistic insight into life in Holmewood – from the distance to the shops for that all important pint of milk to how long the school-run will take.

Joanne said: “It can seem overwhelming when buying a house, especially as a first-time buyer and it is apparent that the different types of mortgage rates available – including the government’s new 5% mortgage scheme – the Stamp Duty holiday, and the Help to Buy scheme are topics that Chesterfield house-hunters were desperate to find out more about.

“In normal circumstances we would have opened our doors and invited people in to celebrate our brand-new launch – obviously things must be done differently at the moment and we’ve actually found that people enjoy being able to do some research from their sofa before making an appointment to visit. “

Located just five miles from Chesterfield and nine miles of the Peak District National Park, the 156-home development offers a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom properties. The development has been designed to appeal to a broad audience – from first-time buyers, growing families or those looking towards retirement.

All of the properties there feature open-plan kitchen/dining areas, integrated appliances, spacious rooms, contemporary finishes and two off-street parking spaces, perfectly suited to anyone searching for a dream, lifelong home.

Stephenson GrangeColette Ben Tarcha, sales director at Lovell, added: “Chesterfield is on the edge of the Peak District so you’re a stone’s throw away from beautiful walks and the stunning market towns of Matlock and Bakewell too. It also boasts excellent commuter links, being just ten minutes away from the M1 by car, allowing easy access to Sheffield and Nottingham for shopping, nights out and work.

“The development has been designed to appeal to a wide audience with different house types available, each with a contemporary feel and suitable to cater for all needs. We have three show homes available for viewings, the two-bedroom semi-detached ‘Fairhaven’, three-bed semi-detached ‘Lansdown’ and the three-bedroom detached ‘Puttenham’, each offering different layouts. Our show homes also have a family-friendly interior design, which gives a great idea of space to show future residents how they can design their home.”

Stephenson Grange is part of a joint venture between Together Housing Group and Lovell Partnerships who have joined forces in a bid to tackle the housing crisis across the region. Of the 156 homes, 38 will be available for affordable rent via Together Housing Group or Shared Ownership via Together Homes in a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments and two- and three-bedroom houses.

Interest in Stephenson Grange has already been strong due to its desirable location and strong commuter links, as well as its wealth of public amenities including a doctor’s surgery, post office and a library. Current released two-bedroom homes start from £169,000 and three-bedroom homes from £195,000.

The first homes will be ready to welcome new residents in summer 2021 and the development is expected to be completed in 2023. Available Thursday to Monday, from 10.00am to 5.00pm, site visits and show home tours must be booked in advance with visitors adhering to COVID-19 guidelines, including the wearing of face masks, limited numbers, and social distancing.
