Welsh housebuilder, Bluebell Homes are extending an open invitation to view their latest two-bedroom, semi-detached bungalows at its new River View development in Lydney.

From July 13, buyers will be able to visit the show home at the development situated on Highfield Road and discover how single-story living could suit their lifestyle.

Adele McCoy, sales director at Bluebell Homes said: "People are surprised to discover that we're building and selling bungalows at River View as they're such a rarity.

"We're excited to be opening an Eastbourne view home to satisfy buyers' curiosity so they can appreciate the layout and how the space could work for them. We're confident visitors will be surprised by the spaciousness from the moment they step inside."

Each of the bungalows feature an open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge as well as a utility room, providing dedicated space for the washing machine and dryer.

"The Eastbourne at River View demonstrates that there is very much a place for new build bungalows and not just on retirement developments," Adele added.

"It's a home that meets the needs of a good cross-section of purchasers from first time buyers keen to make that crucial first step on to the housing ladder, to young families who want the convenience of having everything on one level, to those who perhaps have another home abroad and so require a low maintenance lock up and leave solution."

Overlooking the Severn estuary, the development will include an electric car charging point for every home. Allotments and cycle hire facilities will be available for residents' use from this summer.

Play areas and exercise equipment will also form part of the new community being developed by Bluebell Homes alongside sibling company Edenstone Homes.

The Eastbourne is available from £199,995 with Help to Buy equity loans available. These offer buyers the chance to secure a new home with a five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is covered by an equity loan, which is interest free for five years.

The Eastbourne view home will be open from July 13. For more information, see or call 07384 795 620.
