Home of the Day – ‘The Healey’, Owl Homes

Posted 3 December 2021 by Keith Osborne

Owl Homes is currently offering ‘The Healey’ on a number of plots at its Poet’s Rest development in Polesworth…

The WhatHouse? team is impressed by ‘The Healey’, one of the house types currently for sale at Poet’s Rest, a development from Owl Homes located just a few miles from Tamworth.

‘The Healey’ has already proved a success, with several of them already sold, but there’s still a chance to buy one, with three currently for sale, priced from £275,000. It’s design has some character and the first thing to see coming in is an extended hallway, off which is the cloakroom to one side and the open-plan kitchen/diner at the front of the home on the other. Past the handy understairs storage and at the rear of the home, across its full width, is the lounge, which as access to the rear garden through French doors. Upstairs is a large master bedroom with en suite shower room, a family bathroom and two guest bedrooms, one of which would make an ideal home office.

A recent buyer was asked what they found most appealing about the choice of ‘The Healey’:

“We love the large hall and landing, they make the house feel really spacious. It has an interesting shape, not just flat, making extra space at the front for the L-shaped front entrance and the en suite. The kitchen/diner is great for entertaining, the lounge is large but cosy and the spacious bedrooms work really well. I even have one as an office. Hubby and I also get a bathroom each, which is fabulous!

“Stand-out features are the en suite, stair bannisters, kitchen/diner, the window and shape of hall, making it lovely and light and the under-the-stairs cupboard very useful. We love the quality of the bathroom fittings, door handles and kitchen in particular.

“The house is very comfortable and layout works really well. We’ve been very impressed by the quality of the build and fittings inside and how well we have been looked after by the site manager and the whole team at Owl.”
