A NEW housing development in Ellesmere Port is proving popular with more than half of its homes having sold already.

Anwyl development The Oaks at Rossbank, located off Rossbank Road, will eventually feature 130 new homes for private sale as well as a new multi-use games area, football pitch and areas of green space.

Building work is overseen by project manager Ian Palmer, who won a ‘Quality’ Award at the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards earlier this year – his sixth in a row, and third while working at The Oaks.

Graeme Gibb, sales director for Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, said: "Reaching the halfway point of sales at a development is always a major milestone. Everyone from the sales to the site team is proud of what we have achieved so far at The Oaks.

"Ian has maintained excellent quality standards on site and deservedly won three Pride in the Job awards here, which is an exceptional feat. Future customers can be assured our homes here are being built by one of the best in the business."

The development has been positioned close to a number of amenities including the Ellesmere Port Sports Village, Rivacre Valley Country Park and the shopping and leisure attractions of Cheshire Oaks.

Graeme added: "In addition to excellent local amenities, all our homes come with in-built energy efficiency, giving them the edge over the second-hand market. Moving home could potentially mean buyers save thousands of pounds on their energy bills every year."

Latest figures from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) show that homeowners living in new houses save £180 a month on energy bills, compared with those living in older properties. That works out at more than £2,200 a year.

Anwyl say their properties feature high quality loft and wall insulation from below floor level to reduce heat loss, something which is not possible when retrofitting insulation in older buildings. They also contain energy efficient boilers and appliances and water efficient taps and showers.

Prices start at £229,995 and include three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.
