Ideal for the larger family, the Lancaster Mid has four flexible bedrooms and three floors so you can enjoy your life your way. Enjoy the luxury of an en-suite bedroom, or choose the first floor bedroom for yourself and give the kids the run of the top floor. Use bedroom two as a nursery, conveniently close to the lounge, and save yourself the trip upstairs to settle the littlest family member. Or use it as an office to work from home and ditch the daily commute. It’s up to you.
Whatever you want from your home, you can get it from the Lancaster Mid, so instead of fitting your life into your home, you can choose a home that fits your life.
Add in the luxury of Juliet balconies to both the lounge and master bedroom, downstairs cloaks, a separate utility to the ground floor and an integral garage, and you have a stylish home that will suit you and your family both now and in the future.
About the Development
The Limes at Frenchay Gardens raises the bar for luxury living within easy reach of Bristol, delivering a selection of high-quality homes with superb specification in an outstanding location with far reaching views.
The latest and most exclusive phase of the sought after Frenchay Gardens development, these homes will benefit from a wide range of first-class facilities, from allotments and sports pitches to play areas and even a dedicated primary school.
The Limes offers a choice of four-bedroom townhouses and one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments, all located on Lime Tree Avenue with stunning views across open parkland to Frenchay Common beyond. Perfectly placed, these homes are just six miles from the vibrant heart of Bristol, regularly voted one of Britain’s most popular cities for commerce, culture and study. They are also just a short walk from the University of the West of England’s Bristol campus, making them an excellent investment for both parents and landlords.
Offering an enviable quality of life so close to the city, but without the city centre price tag, The Limes is sure to prove a popular development, so visit the show homes today and see this incredible opportunity for yourself. Remember, you may only need 5% deposit to secure your future at Frenchay Gardens with Help to Buy on apartments, and Redrow could help you sell your old home so you can move sooner.

Older children can also choose from several ‘good’ rated schools, including Fairfield High, Abbeywood Community School and Downend School.
