CALA launches new phase at Stanway development as buyers snap up homes

The final phase of homes at CALA Homes’ Furly Meadows development is being launched ahead of schedule, as the award-winning homebuilder celebrates a surge in demand for new homes in Stanway.

CALA Homes 24 April 2019

With 66% of the homes at Furly Meadows now sold, CALA Homes has responded to customer demand, and released the final 16 homes two months earlier than planned. 

Set in the historic village of Stanway in Colchester, Furly Meadows is a modern development featuring a collection of 50 two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

Chris Roads, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (North Home Counties), said: “We are delighted with the high level of footfall we have seen at Furly Meadows and the positive feedback from those that have bought and reserved on-site so far. We’re equally as thrilled to be able to release the remaining properties to a wide array of eager purchasers, from families, to downsizers and first time buyers. Furly Meadows really does offer it all.

“Despite launching 16 new homes, we don’t expect them to be around for long, so would encourage any interested house hunters to visit the showhome and see for themselves the aspirational lifestyle on offer at Furly Meadows and speak to our sales consultants about the range of incentives on offer to help get them moving into their new CALA home.” 

Amongst the new homes released for sale at Furly Meadows is The Gosfield. Priced at £314,950, The Gosfield is available to purchase through the Help to Buy scheme or CALA’s up to 100% Part Exchange Service. The three-bedroom, semi-detached property has been designed with contemporary comfort and practicality in mind, with a number of handy storage cupboards dotted throughout. The kitchen is the perfect place to show off some culinary flair, while the generous sitting room is the perfect place to relax together as a family, with French doors opening out to the rear garden. Upstairs boasts a stunning master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room, alongside two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

To date, 20% of the homes at Furly Meadows have been purchased through the CALA Homes’ up to 100% Part Exchange Service. This works by the homebuilder effectively acting as a cash buyer for the seller’s existing property, providing them with the peace of mind that the sale will complete in time for the move into their new home. With no estate agents’ fees, marketing or report costs incurred, the service can also save thousands of pounds on the overall cost of the move and is used by almost a third of CALA Homes’ buyers nationally.

Designed for both first and existing homebuyers, the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme is an initiative for homebuyers who need support with deposit funds, enabling them to obtain a mortgage of between 75% and 85% with as little as 5% cash deposit, with the option to purchase additional equity. Help to Buy only applies to new build properties in England with a maximum purchase price of £600,000. Over 60% of buyers at Furly Meadows have utilised the scheme, enabling them to purchase their dream home in Stanway.

Furly Meadows is situated on the outskirts of Stanway village, which is regarded as one of the most desirable suburbs of Colchester. Colchester town boasts a colourful history dating back 2,000 years, and has been the inspiration for famous English artists, such as the 19th century landscape painter, John Constable. Colchester’s thriving culture offers contemporary art galleries, art cafés and award-winning museums. There is a wealth of shops at Tollgate Shopping Centre, just half a mile away, or head into town for a range of high street shops and everyday amenities. 

Ideal for commuters, London Liverpool Street can be reached in just under an hour via the fast service train from Colchester train station. And with Colchester placed to the north east of London, it is perfectly connected to the capital by the A12. To head even further afield, London Stansted Airport is approximately a 30 mile drive away.  

For growing families, there are a number of schools within the catchment of Furly Meadows. Of particular note are Stanway Primary School, Home Farm Primary School and The Stanway School (which has academy status), as they are all Ofsted rated as ‘Good’.
