The sun is shining, the buds are beginning to appear and there is, at last, a hint of spring in the air. When temperatures start to rise so do the spirits of house-hunters everywhere, whether it’s families seeking their forever home, first-time buyers looking for that perfect step up on to the home-owning ladder, or those wishing to downsize. Leicestershire’s most established and well-respected house builder, Jelson Homes, has an exciting selection of new developments and properties to choose from this season, which will no doubt appeal to a broad range of buyers. One of the most significant development launches so far this year is at The Leys, Anstey, which offers buyers a beautiful choice of three-bedroom semi-detached and three- and four-bedroom detached homes, competitively priced from £209,950 to £369,950. Some of the current property choices include the ever-popular Linnet, Plover, Goodwood and Nuthatch house types – all of which have become ‘Jelson favourites’ with buyers during recent years. Ideal for families, couples and single buyers, these well-thought-out homes couldn’t be a better option for those wanting to combine space, style and a great location. With a diverse range of independent shops, schools, health and recreational facilities, those choosing to set up home in Anstey will reap all the benefits of village living in a brand-new home. The Jelson Difference Jelson’s loyal customer base, built on over 125 years of trading throughout the East Midlands is testament to the company’s fine reputation and its unique claim: the Jelson difference. The Jelson difference means its homes are built traditionally, by time-served craftsmen using time-honoured methods with, for example, solid internal walls as standard giving good levels of sound and heat insulation. Carpets and floor coverings are included too, as well as selected kitchen appliances. All homes offer energy-efficient heating and double glazing made in Jelson’s own workshops; all detached properties include a garage. Jackie Woodward, sales manager for Jelson Homes, comments: “Our team has worked hard to bring The Leys to market in time for the spring selling season and we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved. “We are anticipating a busy period this spring and summer and we’re looking forward to welcoming new customers across Leicestershire.” For further information please contact The Leys sales office, open Monday-Friday, from 11am to 5.30pm on 0116 214 7877
