Viewhomes Open at huge Cardiff Development

Househunters have the opportunity to step inside two stunning viewhomes at a huge new development in Cardiff. Persimmon Homes has swung open the doors to two properties at its Church View development, part of the St Edeyrns development off junction 30 of the M4. The two homes available to view are The Greyfriars – a three-bedroom semi-detached property – and The Chedworth – a four-bedroom detached option. Victoria Williams, sales director at Persimmon Homes East Wales, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer househunters the chance to look inside these fantastic viewhomes. “It’s one thing seeing CGIs and plans of houses, but it’s a massive benefit when people can step inside and see the finished product. It gives them a much better idea of the size and style

of the property and they can start to imagine where the furniture can go and how they’d utilise the space. “We have a number of properties at Church View which are build complete, meaning people could

move into their dream home in just a matter of weeks.” The Greyfriars is an impressive three-storey townhouse with space in abundance. With three-bedrooms, a spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast

room and flexible dining/family room, this is an ideal home for families or professionals. The Chedworth is one of Persimmon’s most popular house types. The modern and stylish open plan kitchen/family room is perfect for spending time as a family and entertaining, and there’s also a well- proportioned living room, separate dining room, downstairs cloakroom and utility. The Greyfriars start at £249,995, while the Chedworths are from £309,995. Persimmon Homes has permission for 1,020 new properties at St Edeyrns, where a primary school, allotments and community orchard will also be built.

Housebuilder Announces Customer Satisfaction Scheme

A leading regional

housebuilder has announced the UK’s first homebuyer’s ‘retention’ scheme to support customer satisfaction in its new build properties. Persimmon Homes is the first major housebuilder to establish such a scheme, which will see 1.5% of the total home value withheld by the buyer’s solicitor until any faults identified at the point of key release are resolved. Martin Smith, managing director of Persimmon Homes East Wales, said: "For most of our customers, moving into their new home is an exciting and positive experience. However sometimes there are teething problems that need to be addressed, and the introduction of this homebuyer’s retention is an important step towards ensuring every buyer is able to settle into their property with confidence and satisfaction.
