Local first-time-buyer couple lay first bricks of new home at Strawberry Fields development


19 Mar 2023

A first-time-buyer couple from Carlton have laid the first bricks of their dream new home at Avant Homes' £44m, 129 home Strawberry Fields development in the village.

Rhiannon Irvine and Joseph Coulson were invited to lay the bricks by Avant Homes to mark the occasion of them becoming homeowners. 

Located on Main Street close to Swithens Farm and Oulton Hall, Strawberry Fields comprises a mix of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom properties and features 14 of Avant Homes' house types.   

Prices range from £309,995 for a two-bedroom semi-detached property to £584,995 for a five-bedroom detached house. 

Rhiannon and Joseph have purchased a two-bedroom detached Leven housetype which they are due to move into in June this year. 

Like all properties at Strawberry Fields, their new home will feature a modern and spacious living space, designer kitchen with integrated appliances and a boutique bathroom complete with designer tiling and contemporary sanitaryware. 

Commenting on why the couple decided to buy at Strawberry Fields, Rhiannon said: "We have always regarded Avant Homes as a premium housebuilder since the time we went to its City Fields development in Wakefield and loved the design of the houses there. 

"As first-time buyers, we are really pleased to know our dream home is now underway. The experience has been made extra special by being able to lay some of the first bricks on our new house." 

Joseph added: "Everyone we have dealt with at Avant Homes has provided us with great service and made buying our first home a straightforward and enjoyable experience. 

"We can't wait to move in. It is so exciting knowing we will soon be living in a completely new Avant home, along with all its features and benefits, for us to put our stamp on and make our own." 

The Avant Homes Group currently operates across the Midlands, north of England and Scotland from eight regional operating businesses. 

At present, the housebuilder employs more than 600 people with ambition to grow further across its existing regions and beyond, creating communities and providing employment opportunities for many.   

Avant Homes sales and marketing director, Dan Hardcastle, said: "It was fantastic to welcome Rhiannon and Joseph to Strawberry Fields to lay the first bricks on their home, which was made all the more special by the fact it is the first house they have bought. 

"Since announcing in February that the first homes were for sale at Strawberry Fields, we have had a surge of enquiries in addition to those people who had already registered their interest with us. 

"Sales are strong and, as Rhiannon and Joseph have experienced, we have a skilled team who will make buying and moving into one of our homes a smooth process. 

"Any prospective buyers should get in touch with our sales team to find about more about Strawberry Fields and the wide variety of housetypes we have available."
