House by Urban Splash unveils a bright start to the new year – as first red Row House homes are revealed – and a new way for customers to buy
The modern housebuilder House by Urban Splash is attempting to brighten up gloomy January days with a first look at its new Row House homes at East Float – a new neighbourhood at Wirral Waters in Merseyside. The company has also announced that Help to Buy will also be available on selected Row House homes – making them even more accessible for local buyers.
The brightly coloured new homes are a striking red addition to the local landscape – a hue that’s been inspired by the cranes and bascule bridges of the Birkenhead Dock system. Liverpool-based architectural studio shedkm designed the homes and director Ian Killick explained: “We’ve been inspired by local aesthetics here – hence why they are clad in bright red profiled metal.
“We also wanted to provide a contrast to the neighbouring Town House homes, whilst equally complementing both designs. The result a colourful heart to the new East Float community that we’re extremely proud of.”
Customers looking to buy a Row House home will also now benefit from Help to Buy; this government-backed scheme helps first-time buyers in England onto the property ladder with just a 5% deposit of the purchase price. On two-bedroom Row House priced at £210,000, this is just a £10,500 deposit to own your own home. Eligible buyers can apply for the scheme now.
Row House is available in three sizes; a two-bedroom, two-storey home, a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half storey home with the luxury of a roof terrace, and the largest, a four-bedroom, three-storey home. Residents will also benefit from private terraces as well as spacious communal gardens for their use.
