Whilst some of us prefer the character of an older property that oozes history and displays many quirks, others in Esher favour new homes instead. There are many advantages associated with opting for a new build as a starter home, or designing and building from scratch, which our new home builders at GLR discuss here.
Specialists in property extensions, loft conversions and a range of home improvements, including property refurbishments, our team of experienced builders are more than happy to work with you to design and create the perfect new home for you in Virginia Water, Oxshott and the surrounding areas we cover throughout Surrey.
Probably the most important aspect of a new home is the blank canvas it presents. From here you can put your own personality into the property instead of moving into a house that is full of the previous owners’ personal choices. Here, our residential builders have listed a few key considerations, including:
You don’t need to consider retrofitting or refurbishing with a new build. Everything is brand new, from the position of light switches and sockets to the installation of kitchen cabinetry and bathroom fittings – your home, your choice.
If you’re buying off plans in Esher, you may want to change the layout at the construction stage. This is easily done by consulting with your residential builders in advance. Having property extensions or loft conversions carried out straight away saves property refurbishments and renovations later on.
If you prefer a large kitchen space which incorporates a dining and social area, then GLR can make it happen. What about a utility room with an adjoining cloakroom? How about a master bedroom which resembles a hotel suite? Our new home builders can make this happen!
New builds are now more environmentally friendly in terms of heating and ventilation services. Solar panels and underfloor heating, for example, are the norm for many housing developments. As well as that, new properties are also incorporating smart technology.
Our new home builders at GLR also note the convenience of purchasing a new home with no property chain to worry about, as well as the additional warranties which are not available with older homes. Your personal choices for design and layout are taken into consideration at the start of the project so no property extensions or loft conversions need to be carried out at a later date. With everything brand new at the beginning, it’ll also be quite some time before you need to consider any property refurbishments as well. Our domestic builders provide a complete design-and-build service for the projects we manage and the building services we undertake in and around Esher.
