Television production students from The University of Bradford recently brought a touch of Hollywood to Lastingham Green after choosing Gleeson’s show homes on the development to film scenes for a short drama as part of their final year project.
Student Adam Bacon explains, “Our film revolves around a smart sophisticated woman who wakes up one day and finds everyone in her world has disappeared. We required a spacious, modern home to film in and the show homes at Lastingham Green fit the bill perfectly. The development also provided an attractive back drop to film external scenes for our drama”
More than 65% of Gleeson’s 2 & 3 bedroom homes at Lastingham Green are now sold and with mortgage repayments starting from £87 per week with FirstBuy for a new 2 bedroom home it is clear to see why they have been such a big hit with local buyers.
Maxine Baxter, Sales Manager for Gleeson Homes said, “We were delighted to help the students with their project and it is great to see our beautiful show homes on the ‘big screen’. We wish Adam and his fellow students the best of luck with their film”.
Filming of the drama, entitled The Removal Men, took place 25 years after Buttershaw featured in the film Bob, Sue and Rita Too. Since then the area has changed beyond recognition with the tower blocks featured in the film replaced with attractive new homes perfect for young people and families looking for spacious houses, at affordable prices, close to Bradford City Centre.
Every home at Lastingham Green features a driveway and a generously sized garden. Prices of Gleeson’s new homes at Lastingham Green start from £72,796 with FirstBuy making them affordable even for new graduates like Adam.
Maxine adds, “We have a range of schemes to help buyers purchase a new home. FirstBuy is one of our most popular schemes. Through FirstBuy you own 100% of your home but pay just 80% of the price with the outstanding 20% provided as a loan which is interest free for 5 years. Mortgage repayments with FirstBuy start from £87 per week and buyers are often surprised to know they can obtain a mortgage if they have a joint hosehold income of just £20,000 or more.”
Gleeson also offers assistance to First Time Buyers who need help with their deposit as well as schemes aimed at parents who want to help their children purchase their first home.
Whatever your situation there has never been a better time to buy a new, now famous, home at Lastingham Green. Buyers are urged to visit the stunning show homes and reserve a new house now before they sell out!
