St Marks View aerial
CHELTENHAM homebuyers can zoom in and get a realistic pavement perspective of any Bromford home at St Mark's View − thanks to a whizzy new interactive site map on the Bromford Homes website.
This fast and user-friendly feature was added to the Find a Home section of www.bromfordhomes.co.uk so that homehunters can explore many virtual views of this landmark Gloucestershire development while construction work continues apace.
Pick a plot from the aerial map and prospective buyers can see what the frontage looks like from street level and, with a second click, see the internal room layouts on both floors.
Another click and visitors are back on the map, ready to explore virtual views of the other 25 homes Bromford is building for outright sale and shared ownership.
Bromford Homes Sales and Marketing Director Bev Hall urges Cheltenham homebuyers to give the interactive site map a try − and to tell her team what they what you think about it through Twitter @BromfordHomes and the dedicated St Mark's View Facebook page.
"It's a first for us − and for our customers − and we hope they'll find it a really useful way to explore a virtual version of St Mark's View while our award-winning construction team is busy onsite," says Bev.
"We had so much positive feedback from customers when we launched our fly-through video, which shows a computer-generated view of how the development could look.
"The interactive site map takes this a stage further, giving homebuyers the ability to pick any plot and get a vivid idea of how it might look if they were standing on the pavement. You can even click on the image, tilt the view up and down, left and right to give you a wider view of that particular street."
And, of course, Bromford Homes have a real-life presence onsite with their sales suite, which is open every Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. The outright sales showhome is on schedule to open in the middle of March and it's hoped that the first completions will take place at the end of March or early April.
