If you’re moving house but can’t decide if you want to buy a new build or an older home, we have all the information you need to know about the benefits of purchasing a brand new home. On top of the unrivalled luxury, you feel when you come home, living in a new build comes with some unexpected advantages. A modern home saves you money with greater energy efficiency - and lets you seize the opportunity to move to a desirable location. But that’s just the start. At Bargate, we don’t just build beautiful, comfortable homes; we build welcoming communities that you’ll be proud to call home. Each home we build is carefully crafted, to showcase individual character and complement its surroundings. If acres of stunning English countryside sounds like the perfect destination for your next move, you don’t have to rule out a new build. We design our rural homes with traditional architecture, to complement the charming villages, breathtaking views and fascinating heritage around them. Please view some of our current developments to see for yourself the homes Bargate build: Deer Walk Ashwood Romana Better for the environment, better for your pocket We’re proud to build quality homes that meet the latest environmental standards, offering unbeatable value for money. A new build home from Bargate cuts carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 60% when compared with a second-hand property. Our homes are not only better for the environment - they’re around 50% cheaper to run than older homes. New build homes can make an enormous difference to your outgoings by reducing utility bills by more than £500 a year. Our homes are fitted with the latest boilers, that only make hot water when you need it. So you can relax and put your feet up, knowing that your home will keep you cosy through the winter - without a hefty bill. High-quality for complete peace of mind We follow strict building regulations, for homes that are built to last. We start our diligent process before a single home is built - surveying the development location to make sure it’s safe from flooding and any other natural events. Knowing you can settle straight into your home without the worry of paying for repair and maintenance work (or doing lots of DIY) is just one of the reasons why buying new is such a popular option. There’s nothing worse than having the excitement of moving completely destroyed when you find poor DIY jobs and stained carpets in a second-hand home. It can be costly and stressful, knowing that there’s so much to do. “We have been nothing but delighted with our lovely new Bargate Home in Fair Oak. We looked at lots of new houses before buying but the finish, specification, design and location of our Bargate home just seemed to edge the others out. We especially like the higher ceilings which give the downstairs rooms a light and airy feel.” A modern home with integrated kitchen appliances, a stylish en-suite and a gorgeous master bedroom isn’t a luxury with Bargate - it’s a quality standard. We build houses you’ll be proud to call home, by using the latest building materials. And all of our homes include high-performance locks, burglar alarms and smoke alarms - so you’ll feel safe even when you aren’t at home. To give you complete peace of mind, our homes come with a 2-year guarantee and 10-year structural warranty with Premier. Our customer care team are always on hand to answer your questions too. “The build quality was of a very high standard and I have since recommended Bargate to a number of friends.” Make your first (or second) home your dream home We are so proud to be a part of helping our customers get on the property ladder and move into their first home. With Help to Buy, we make the buying process as easy as possible. So many customers didn’t even know they could move into their dream home with just a 5% deposit - until they spoke to us. If you’re a second-time buyer, Help to Buy is available to you, too - in fact, anyone who wants to move into a newly built home under £600,000 is eligible. It’s another great advantage of buying new that you can’t get from buying second-hand. “I'd recommend Bargate to anyone looking for their dream home and if you're considering buying a New Build, I'd urge you to give them a chance whilst looking around!” Chain free, hassle free Whether you’re buying your third, fourth or tenth house, having the opportunity to move in as soon as you complete means you don’t have the stress of waiting for existing owners to move out. By cutting the chain, you eliminate the uncertainty that is often associated with moving - particularly with second-hand homes. Bring your personality into your home New homes offer something for everyone. There are countless designs and styles to choose from in all price ranges - and every one of our homes has a charming individual character. With a new home, you can tailor your property to your personal taste - by choosing flooring, adding your own interior design touches and growing your own garden just the way you want it. A new build home is your chance to develop and design the perfect environment for you and your family. Everything that happens in your new home will be a first: the first laughs, the first meal - the first relaxing bath. Your new home is so much more than just a blank canvas - it’s the start of a lifetime of memories and your chance to add your own style and personality throughout.
