KINGFISHER PARK, a brand new development by Barratt Homes in the pretty market town of Buntingford.

The impressive collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes is located around half a mile from the town centre. Demand for quality new homes in this prime location is expected to be high and prospective buyers are encouraged to register their interest now.

Chris Scarborough of Barratt North London, says: We are very excited about Kingfisher Park, it really is a development that ticks all the boxes. Buntingford, on the banks of the River Rib, is a much sought-after place to live and we are delighted to be offering a wide range of house styles suitable for those taking their first steps onto the property ladder through to others seeking a substantial family home.

Now is a very good time to buy. As this is just the start of the scheme, the first buyers will have the opportunity to choose their favourite plot off-plan, they will also be able to add bespoke elements to their interior specifications.

The new homes at Kingfisher Park are being built to the high standards expected of Barratt Homes, the only major housebuilder to be given a maximum five star rating its highest ever score in 2010s Home Builders Federation Customer Satisfaction Survey.

All the properties have been designed to suit todays lifestyles, with more space where it is needed and plenty of facilities for busy households. The three-bedroom houses, for example, have a living/dining room that opens into a conservatory area, providing more ground floor room for growing families. The five-bedroom homes conveniently have three bathrooms, which are helpful on busy school mornings and are useful when guests come to stay. Barratt is also helping owners to lower their carbon footprint, and energy bills, by providing a solar powered hot water system for most homes.

The traditionally built new homes will be architecturally very attractive, with a variety of different external finishes complimenting the buildings in Buntingford, a town that demonstrates well how the past and present can exist together in harmony.

Today it is a town people want to live in rather than simply pass through, and it has great appeal for all ages.
