A Semi Rural Haven - Not Far From The Sea
26 Feb 2013

Reserve now; the earlier the better!

Lorton Gardens lies just to the north of Weymouth, off the Dorchester Road. It is a peaceful, quiet, semi-rural site on Lorton Lane. And where Lorton Lane ends, the Lorton Meadows nature reserve begins.

But these homes are far from cut off: they are within walking distance of a main line railway station and have good road links into the heart of Weymouth.

Linden Homes is building a collection of just fourteen 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes at Lorton Gardens.

These homes are expected to be very popular – and several are likely to be sold off-plan before they’re even completed. So it might be wise to register your interest with us now. If you look to buy off-plan, you can reap many benefits too in being able to:

  • Choose exactly what plot you want from this collection of stunning homes
  • Design the home as you want it: you can choose your kitchen, and bathroom tiles, appliances, flooring and other items too, depending on the stage of construction
  • Give it your personal touch: using our Enhance service, you can upgrade and select from a variety of optional extras to make your home even more individual
  • Potentially save money: you may be able to take advantage of special Pre-Show Home prices

Linden Homes, which was recently named ‘Best Large Housebuilder of the Year’ at the What House? awards, always builds to an extremely high standard. The company is famous for its attention to detail and its high specification kitchens and bathrooms which come as standard. The company also prides itself on delivering excellent customer service.

Depending on your circumstance, Linden Homes also offers a number of schemes to help make that move a bit easier.

It could be that you’re interested in a new home at Lorton Gardens, but view your existing home as a barrier to a smooth move. The Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme* is designed to relieve that pressure and take the responsibility of selling your home for you.

Under the scheme, Linden Homes will have your old property valued and make you an offer for it so you can go ahead and buy your new Linden Home.

Mark Docherty is Linden Homes’ sales and marketing director said: “Our Part Exchange Scheme has worked really well for many Linden Homes’ buyers. They have told us that knowing some of the stress and frustration of selling would be removed actually inspired them to go ahead with plans to buy a new home.”

“Lorton Gardens is set to be a stunning development and ideally placed on the south coast for those who want the best of town and outdoor living. We are pre-empting that many people will have properties to sell, so we would encourage those homeowners to speak with our teams, to see how we can help them get their property sale in motion and make a move into one of our stylish homes.”

Stephanie and Justin Walford found the Part Exchange Scheme to be an extremely smooth process: “We’d been getting nowhere when we were trying to sell the old house ourselves. Once we found the home we wanted, the Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme took away the hassle of selling our old house. It also freed up a few thousand pounds in saved estate agent fees. But most importantly it meant we could get on with the move.”

Alison and David Huntingford also used the Part Exchange Scheme to buy their new Linden Home: “The Part Exchange Scheme gave us absolute peace of mind because we knew we weren’t part of a chain that could break. We were so desperate to move and the price Linden Homes offered us for our old home was set, which made it so much easier when it came to dealing with the banks. But the best thing was that we knew when we were going to move. We had a definite date and we knew that it was going to happen.”

For those struggling to get their deposit together, there are other schemes available to permit interested buyers the requirement to save just a 5% deposit. The NewBuy Scheme is a government-backed initiative designed to make it easier for people to afford a new home by offering a 95% mortgage. This scheme isn’t just for first time buyers – it is for anyone who wants to buy a new build home – as long as that home costs no more than £500,000.
