New year, new home in the country!

Posted on October 17th, 2019

You love a rural location, but you need easy access to the motorway network and major cities. You like contemporary living and the very latest appliances, but you also like your surroundings to have a touch of history and heritage. Here at Seddon, we believe in having it all… And we think we’ve ticked all your boxes with our charming development at The Hawthorns in Keele – not a compromise in sight!

Hawthorns street scene view. New build homes in Keele.There are 11 different house types available here. They range from 2 bedroom homes (perfect for first steppers or downsizers) to fabulous five-bedroom properties, so you can be sure there’s a house to suit you! And whichever freehold home you choose, we guarantee the same high specification and outstanding build quality.

The location, surrounded by fields and woodland close to Keele University, is beautifully rural. Yet the M6 is just 5 miles away, giving easy access to Manchester, Bimingham and Liverpool. For history lovers, The Hawthorns has an aristocratic pedigree, built in the extensive grounds of Keele Hall.

Owned by local gentry the Sneyd family for more than 400 years, the estate at one time included a racecourse, seven lakes and an amphitheatre. Ancient trees that were planted when the first Keele Hall was built in 1544 can still be seen close to the development.

But you’ll be pleased to know there’s nothing remotely old fashioned about our homes at The Hawthorns! Generous room sizes, energy saving glazing and turfed front and rear gardens are all included as standard. And every property has a hand-built Beckerman kitchen and integrated Zanussi appliances included in the price. 

Stylish en suites with rainfall showers, fully tiled shower cubicles and bathrooms with contemporary Ideal Standard suites? All part of our exceptional package when you purchase a Seddon home. And prices start from just £451,000

The popular Help to Buy scheme is available on all the homes at The Hawthorns – and it’s not just for first time buyers. The government-backed scheme allows purchasers to secure their new home with a deposit of just 5%. The government then lends a further 20%, so you only need a 75% mortgage. Seddon’s Sales Advisors can discuss other available buying methods too.
