Those who long to own a stylish new home in Winchester could find they're able to live the dream with help from Redrow.

Situated in the popular Abbotts Barton area, Abbotts Walk enjoys a quiet leafy setting North East of the city, close to the River Itchen. In fact residents can follow a footpath from the development to the river bank and into the heart of Winchester, home to a wealth of amenities including high street stores and independent retailers.

Strong road and rail links mean the homes are well placed for commuting as London, Southampton and Portsmouth are all within easy reach.

Julie Davies, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), commented: "Location is a major factor when choosing a new home and Abbotts Walk ticks all of the right boxes. Set on the edge of Winchester, it's ideal for those who want some quiet to kick back and relax at the end of a busy day while still benefitting from being close to the city's amenities. It's also well suited to those who are trying to find the perfect work/life balance as some of the larger properties include self-contained home office spaces and if business necessitates a trip to the capital, London Waterloo can be reached within an hour by train form the local station."

Current prices range from £229,950 for a two-bedroom apartment to £629,950 for a five-bedroom detached family home.

The good news for buyers is that Redrow has incentives available designed to help get people moving.

For example homeowners could take advantage of part exchange and simply trade in their existing property towards the cost of a new one.

Alternatively, Redrow may offer to gift a 5% contribution towards the customer's deposit which could amount to a saving of tens of thousands of pounds.

"With many lenders asking for deposits of around 20% of the purchase price, the offer of a 5% contribution is a welcome boost to people's buying power," Julie added.

"On the four-bedroom Walmesley, priced at £589,950, that works out at almost £30,000. It could be the difference between staying in an older home that you're family has perhaps outgrown and moving to a property that's stylish, easy to manage and efficient to run."
