Steel band offers a warm welcome at showhome launch

The Caribbean comes to Great Barr this weekend when a steel band helps to launch a stunning new showhome.

Tropikal Vizions steel band will entertain visitors at Booths Farm, as leading housebuilder Persimmon Homes unveils its latest ideal home, a superb four bedroom property with detached garage.

Stephen Cleveley, sales director for Persimmon Homes West Midlands, said: “Summer might have been a bit of a washout so far this year, but we’ll be giving visitors a warm welcome at Booths Farm this weekend.

“And if the weather does pick up, visitors will have chance to explore the fantastic Queslett nature reserve right on the development’s doorstep, with lovely country walks to explore.

“Meanwhile, our Ludlow showhome includes a lounge with French doors to the rear garden, a useful study, kitchen and dining area, and a separate utility room. Upstairs, the master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, and there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.”

The showhome décor has been created by the Blocc specialist interior design consultancy from Kings Norton, who devised an aspirational family home which combines traditional style with a contemporary twist. The colour scheme is mainly neutral, with flashes of pistachio, and light-reflective wallpaper for a touch of glamour.

In keeping with the heritage of the area, prints of photographs of the original Booths Farm from the turn of the last century decorate the home’s study.

Today Booths Farm is a superb development of just 43 homes, priced from £184,950, and is proving popular with buyers with several properties snapped up even before the showhome launch.

As part of the development, Persimmon Homes will be creating a village green open space, surrounding the historic remains of the original farm building. Some parts of the site make the most of the elevated site, offering great skyline views across Birmingham.

Booth’s Farm is close to primary and secondary schools, shopping facilities and the motorway network.

Mr Cleveley added: “Anyone with an existing property to sell can come along this weekend to find out how Persimmon’s part exchange schemes could help to get them moving, or we can offer advice about the new Help To Buy shared equity scheme and NewBuy 95 per cent mortgages.

“Whatever your circumstances, we can help you find the right package to secure the keys to your new dream home.
