Open house event with chance to make an Easy Move into a new home in Thornton

Wednesday, 28th February 2024

The doors to a new home in Thornton will be opened this Saturday (March 2) with experts on hand to explain how even those with a property to sell could make an Easy Move.


Castle Green Homes is hosting an open house event at its popular Orchard Place development, to showcase the four-bedroom detached Salisbury. A pair of homes in this style will be ready to move into this spring.

During the event there will also be the chance to find out more about the homebuilder’s Easy Move scheme and how to apply for “green mortgages”.


Sales director Sian Pitt explained: “Building work is progressing well at Orchard Place and we now have an example of the Salisbury house type that’s available to view, along with the three show homes. Combined with the wealth of digital resources available via our website, viewing a finished example of one of our homes will help buyers make an informed decision about which style of property best suits their lifestyle.

“We also understand that many people considering buying here have a house to sell. The good news is we can help with that. Easy Move is a one-stop service that helps sellers become buyers. We’ll manage the whole process from arranging for the customer’s home to be valued, appointing an agent and working with them to achieve a quick sale at full market value. We’ll even contribute towards the agent’s fees.”


The Salisbury is a traditional looking home, designed for modern life inside. It offers 1,570 sq ft of carefully planned living space.

At the front is the living room, with feature bay window; while the combined kitchen, dining and family room encompasses the rear of the property and is destined to be the heart of the home. There’s also a utility and cloakroom.

Upstairs, two of the four bedrooms are en-suite, meaning the family bathroom serves the other two. The main bedroom also enjoys the benefit of a dressing area.

The Salisbury is available from £464,995.


All of Castle Green’s new homes in Thornton are being built using sustainably sourced, precision-made timber frames, with generous insultation, and highly efficient central heating. Some of the homes include solar panels to help reduce reliance on the grid for power. Kitchens are fitted with energy efficient appliances. Eco labelled white goods such as dishwashers and washing machines are provided or available as an extra, all to A level rating.

“Our homes achieve an Energy Performance Certificate rating of A or B, making them among the most energy efficient available, with the chance to save between £2,200 and £2,600 annually on energy bills according to HBF data,” Sian added.

“Thanks to their efficiency they’re eligible to be purchased with green mortgages. Subject to lender, these can offer discounted rates, cash back or enhanced affordability. The latter effectively means that lenders recognise that lower running costs new build homeowners enjoy and are prepared to offset that by increasing the amount they’re prepared to lend them.”

Across Orchard Place, Castle Green has a choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes available, with current prices from £264,995.

The new homes will enjoy a leafy setting, with existing mature landscaping retained across the almost 18-acre site. Public open space, including a play area, will provide a central focal point and a place for residents of all ages to enjoy the outdoors.

To see inside the Salisbury, join Castle Green at Orchard Place this Saturday (March 2).
