Summerfield held two successful open days in Minehead and Williton, launching an internal decorations package worth £3,000 for new homebuyers, whilst also raising money for St. Margaret’s Hospice.

Homebuyers will be able to choose from a variety of floor coverings and blinds for their new property, which will be sourced locally to support businesses in Somerset.

To kick-start the offer, cream tea viewing days took place on Saturday 12 July in glorious sunshine at both sites. In return for a donation on the day to one of Summerfield’s chosen charities, St. Margaret’s Hospice, potential buyers enjoyed locally sourced scones, jam and cream, while gaining advice from Summerfield’s sales team and interior designers on how to make the make the most of the offer.

Richard Nicol, Divisional Sales Director for Summerfield, said:

“The prospect of moving into a brand new home is exciting and offers buyers the chance to decorate exactly as they want. Our open day on 12 July allowed people to view the show homes at College Gardens and The Paddocks, while also giving them the opportunity choose their £3,000 of free décor, by reserving a home. This offer is still available until 8 August and I would urge people to come and take a tour of our show homes or contact us for more information.”

The College Gardens development is well situated in the popular residential area of Alcombe, Minehead, and offers a choice of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes with prices starting at £155,000. At The Paddocks in Williton, three-bedroom terraced homes with either garages or two parking spaces are available from £175,000, as well as four-bedroom semi-detached or detached properties ranging from £220,000 to £249,950 depending on the plot.

In line with Summerfield’s usual high standards, each property has been designed specifically to complement its setting, incorporating traditional style with character features typical of the local area. All are built in a sustainable way, are designed to ensure energy efficiency and come with a ten-year warranty.

Talking about Summerfield’s aim to support local business, Richard added:

“Summerfield is a South West developer born from a family construction company that’s been active in the area since 1823, so supporting local businesses and charities is incredibly important to us. It’s an exciting time for Somerset; businesses are positioning themselves for future growth and our decision to use local suppliers is our way of supporting the local economy.”

As well as helping new homebuyers and supporting local businesses, Taunton-based charity, St. Margaret’s Hospice, also benefited from the cream tea open days as they will receive £100 for every property sale that completes within 2014.
