Save £1,400 a year at Lakeside

A leading housebuilder is encouraging homebuyers to buy new at its Scunthorpe development in a bid to save more than £1,400 on energy bills.

Persimmon Homes said today’s buyer needs to consider the cost savings associated with buying a newly-built home at their Lakeside development as opposed to an older equivalent.

Kevin Thubron, sales director for Persimmon Homes Yorkshire, said: “According to recent research by the NHBC (National Housing Building Council), those who live in new build homes built to today’s standards could save more than £1,400 a year on their energy bills when compared to neighbours in older homes.*

“The research indicates that a four-bedroom detached new home, like our Roseberry, could be 57 per cent* cheaper to run than an updated Victorian equivalent. And our three-bedroom semi-detached Hanbury could be 53 per cent* cheaper to run than an older build of the same style.”

Persimmon Homes has predicted that with the £1,400 savings per year estimated by the NHBC, families could save approximately £35,000 over the lifetime of a 25 -year mortgage.

Kevin added: “New homes offer enormous cost savings to households, both annually and over the lifetime of a mortgage.

“And while energy efficiency is only one of the advantages of buying a new build property, the potential to save such a large amount of money per year could mean the difference between buying a small home and your forever home.”

Lakeside is a stunning collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes, epitomising the unmistakable quality and style that is synonymous with Persimmon Homes.

Having recently released a new phase of larger four bedroom homes, this development is perfect for downsizers and growing families alike.

Prices at Lakeside start from £94,999**
