Location plays such an important part in the home-buying decision-making process which probably explains why award-winning house builder Bellway Homes’ Guardians’ Gate development at MIlton Road, Portsmouth, is doing so well.

‘Purchasers get the best of city centre living being close to so many different types of amenities,’ says sales manager Lisa Sims.

‘Retail, sports and leisure, schools and transport links are all well catered for and with off-road parking and garages at this development it has proved to be a popular destination from the first day we opened.’

Four bedroom homes are currently available with prices ranging from £324,995 to £355,995.

One of the house styles is the Chaucer detached family home (pictured) which offers superb living space. Off the hall you have double-glazed doors that take you through to a front-facing living room with a feature bay window. There is an open-plan kitchen and famaily dining area to the rear with French doors out to the garden creating a perfect hub of the house. It comes with a modern kitchen with a range of appliances. These include a built-in oven, hob and cooker hood and an integrated fridge/freezer.

Two storage cupboards and a useful cloakroom complete the downstairs’ facilities. The first floor has three double bedrooms and one single plus a modern family bathroom that serves bedrooms two, three and four, while the main bedroom has a bay window and en-suite shower room.

Another is the Christie house style, an appealing detached family home.

On the ground floor the hallway runs between the two main living areas.

The living room has a dual aspect and feature bay window. A range of integrated, stainless steel appliances are to be enjoyed in the open-plan kitchen dining area.

A useful utility room, storage cupboard and cloakroom complete this level. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and one single. Bedroom three has a dual aspect, while the main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes. A modern family bathroom serves bedrooms two, three and four.

‘Help to Buy has been used by a number of our purchasers and is still available at this development,’ added Lisa.

The sales centre is open Friday to Wednesday from 10am to 5pm and until 7pm on Thursday or call (023) 9281 6004. Alternatively visit website bellway.co.uk.
