Larkfleet Sales staff to open new development in Oakham early for Easter Weekend sneak-preview

30 March 2012

Sales staff at Larkfleet Homes? new Oakham development ?Leighfield Park? will hold a special sneak-preview of the site on Easter weekend (6-9 April) to allow potential homebuyers to get a first-chance look at the development.
Leighfield Park is the first phase of Oakham Heights, Larkfleet?s major urban expansion of Oakham, located on land between the Oakham bypass and Barleythorpe Road.

The Larkfleet sales team will make the most of the long Easter weekend when no construction will be taking place at Leighfield Park to show those interested in a Larkfleet property around the site, talk them through the development and help them with any queries they may have about buying a home.

Leighfield Park will offer traditional styled two, three, four and five bedroom properties starting from £149,995.
The development is aimed at families looking for a stylish and traditional home that allows them to enjoy rural life whilst still benefiting from good transport links to surrounding towns and cities.
All 143 properties at Leighfield Park will have solar PV (photovoltaic) panels fitted as standard so homebuyers can benefit from reduced energy bills. The PV panels will produce electricity from daylight, generating useable power even on cloudy days.

Larkfleet will also make allotments available for all residents at the current market value in order to encourage a sustainable lifestyle and community.

Some properties on the Leighfield Park development will be available through the government-backed FirstBuy scheme. With the help of FirstBuy, homebuyers have the chance to take up a five-year interest-free loan meaning they could own a Larkfleet home sooner than they thought. Purchasing a Larkfleet property in Oakham could even be cheaper than renting a property with the help of FirstBuy.

The overall planning approval for Oakham Heights also includes a continuing care retirement community, a care home and around 30 acres of offices as well as parks and open spaces, children?s play areas and a new local centre. Planning approval also includes improved transport links with new cycle, footpath and bus routes.

In total, 1,100 high quality homes could eventually be constructed over 15 years in ten phases.

Integral parts of the proposals for the development are a new permanent enhanced and enlarged home for the Rutland County Show and new improved facilities for the town?s football, rugby and other clubs.

Rutland County Council also recently approved outline planning permission for a hotel and detailed planning permission for an adjoining Marston?s Inns and Taverns pub/restaurant.

Jason Colmer, sales director for Larkfleet Homes, commented: ?Leighfield Park will provide homebuyers with a helping hand onto the housing ladder, which is especially important in Oakham where house prices are well above the national average. The sustainable nature of the properties will benefit residents in years to come and the location of the site is ideal for those who enjoy rural life but need reliable transport links.

?I would encourage any homebuyer looking to purchase a property in Oakham to come along on Easter weekend to see for themselves the property types on offer at Leighfield Park. This is a unique opportunity to view the development site early ? almost a month before the official launch in May.?
